My Sins Against Gender Stereotypes

So IHM started this brilliant tag and I was tagged by Monika in this one. To complete the tag IHM says-
If You Are a Man-

Have you ever wanted something that only women are supposed to want – like bags, shoes, clothes, creams, perfumes, babies, flowers? A peaceful home and a happy family? Have you ever been afraid of the dark or of insects?

As a kid did you ever want to play ‘teacher-teacher’, cooking or did you like playing with a doll? Have you ever enjoyed cooking? Bought something in pink? Loved chocolates?

So here’s a tag – Please list at least ten things you have ever wanted or done which your gender is not supposed to.

As the readers of the blog would already know, I am not the kinds who could be stereotyped as feminist’s delight. Somehow my feminists friends do not get very thrilled by my radical ideas of gender equality so I believe in the bias. People who are deciding to blast me right away, have taken out their knifes and shovels out may keep then inside; remember chivalry is also a kind of chauvinism and somehow women around me love it. And I don’t mind doing it for people around me for whom I care. Coming back to the tag I thought it might be difficult for me complete the tag. But there is no harm in trying so here goes my list

  • I have a strong liking for Sunglasses, I have 6 pair of glasses currently as a part of my wardrobe
  • I have a again a huge collections of fragrances which I love to use, and I cannot decide amongst my favorites perfumes from UCB, CK, Azzaro, Burberry, Davidoff, and Ralph Lauren so I have them all
  • I simply love chocolate. I have a craving for chocolate and I need to have a chocolate dessert then
  • I love to read.
  • I like watching Sitcoms and Romantic Comedy Movies
  • One of real life role models is Carly Fiorina who is a woman
  • I Enjoy Shopping
  • I like buying shoes, though I don’t have one matching every dress but I do enjoy shoe shopping
  • I use a sunscreenin summers
  • I freak out over my weight increases beyond two Kgs, though I might not do anything about it but I would be generally bothered about it
  • Now comes the tough part, finding bloggers who haven’t done this tags. I can think of only two bloggers who haven’t taken this one, so Reema & Deepti you are tagged 🙂

        @Chatterbox: well I guess thats what how other genders observe stereotypes despite them being common between them 😀

        @Meira: I love Davidoff but recently I have started preferring Azarro Chrome over it…Both of them have a similar fragrance but Azarro is longer lasting.
