Being that my mom ended up being both mom & dad I was raised with more of a feminist bent most of my life. Not a lot of true male influence in my life which I sometimes think may have not been a good thing. The men my sisters married seemed to be pussies. I honestly think I ended up with the most masculine man to make me feel more feminine.Mom was... indifferent to a lot of the details of raising us. Dad and all our relatives raised us with "So what, girls can do that too." We were never given the option to weenie out due to our gender. We played soccer, hell, my youngest sister played soccer on a boys rec team because the girls were all afraid of the damn ball. I came home with a C on a paper because I went with a feminist approach to the question, my Dad told me to take it up the chain of command. I got my A. Like I said, our gender was never an excuse.
The only sport I played was football and that's because I could tackle better than any boy due to a lower center of gravity and I had no fear of them. Wasn't allowed to play on any leagues or teams though because I hit too hard.
