Playing With Boys

Playing With Boys

One beautiful little boy in particular adored my daughter. I remember his excitement as he has seen her in the shopping centre. I loved him. He was upset when he thought he had hurt her. We have often spoken of the enthusiasm of his greeting. Greetings are so important.  From “Little high. Little Low” to the simple ‘Hi” I had received on the doorstep of our American home. I have days when this is the greeting I would like to give:

My daughter joined in with the boy’s games even though she had been told, “Girls don’t play football,”

Nobody tells my daughter she can’t play football.


The girls in my class had played football with gusto. Their Friday lunchtime football game with the boys was I think the first truly mixed football game in the school. I felt strongly about my daughter’s right to play football if she so wished.

Some Women Actually Enjoy Male Company

Some women like guys. I do. My daughter does too. So did my mum and my grandmother. She had not been a very good guard when her brothers were scrumping. Some of Dad’s ancestors got into trouble for making illegal scrumpy!

Some of Dad’s relatives sounded a bit like this!

Best quote ever from one of her brothers whom she had abandoned in the tree.

“All we had seen of her was her red underwear as she ran away.”


She was referred to as ” My Little Scarlet runner’ from that point on.

Penny enjoyed the company of nerds even if she did try to make their brains explode occasionally. (This is really making me miss my needy guy friends. I mean it is not every guy who will follow you up and down escalators.)


I often used to take home cake for my brother from birthday parties, I believe he used to do the same for me. Our two would also often save each other cake.

I miss my guy friends so much…

My ex has ended up being the first guy I have ever seriously disliked!

Guys have betrayed me way less frequently than girls!

Most of the time girls were just mean to me!


There was only ever one guy who was consistently cruel to me. The teacher had come in and found me covered head to toe in sugar and had done absolutely nothing about it!

I am a feminist who likes men!

I had to laugh when was accused by a transsexual(sorry if I have this wrong.) of misandry. They could not have been more wrong. I have recently met the first bunch of women I have liked in over twenty years of living in Australia!
