childhood stuff
Although i grew up with my mother, i have very few memories of doing things with her. One of the only memories is that of vising the Chislehurst Caves. I was in a pushchair, 2 or 3 yrs old and remember picking blackberries on the way there. I loved the creepiness of the caves, they have fossils in walls and ceilings and people sheltered there during the war. They also have a number of feature alcoves, i remember the one with some witches most clearly and a dalek one. I think that was the single most fun time i ever had with my mother.
My dad and grandfathers were much more intersting and would tell me what every plant and tree was as we passed them, and would show me how to make things, from paper boats to model aeroplanes. My grandad George would tell me all about birds and woodcarving and boats and planes as well.
I think it was these influences that made me believe that women are pretty boring and men are much more fun and interesting.

Re: childhood stuff
Yes, when you are a kid you do form general opinions from your limited experiences. I'm not saying it was a correct opinion, i was just summing up what my experiences had led me to theorise.
As it is it was a longstanding belief in my life, and am only recently, say the last 8 years of my life beginning to value women more. (may i add that i am one)

Re: childhood stuff
Yes i suppose i was, i enjoyed playing with my brother and the boys in the street more than with the girls. They were always afraid of stuff. Pansys. Conversely one of my favourite toys was my sindy house/caravan/ferrari etc. And i loved dressing them up and doing their hair. A confused conflicted child, I wanted to be a fashion designer, jockey and rally driver.
Today, tend to be more comfortable in jeans, i work in construction, male dominated workforce and feel uncomfortable being thought of as a girl, still think of myself as one of the boys. People keep contradicting me tho, being 5ft 2" and 8 stone with a liking for pink ( i blame my 3 year old friend)
