I’m so pissed off with this stupid thinking of people.
A few days ago, there was this sports fest in our college and we were asked to register our names for whichever sport we were interested in. People were so damn excited to get their names registered for cricket, the gentleman’s game.
My classmate approached me and asked:
“Aren’t you playing?”
I was like, meh.
“Do you play basketball?”-no
“Do you play football?”-no
What kinda guy is a guy who’s not interested in games? What do you play, dude? How do you pass your idle time?
I said I play computer games and PlayStation games.
Seriously? Are you a kid??
Or are you a woman? Gay?
Seriously, what does it have to do with my gender and sexuality?
Yes, I’m a guy and I’m not into sports and games. I just like to lay on the couch and play videogames. These kind of gender stereotypes annoy me.
I do all the kinds of things guys do. I just am not into sports.
When I was a kid, I was not a good student (I still am not). So my classmates alienated me and never let me play with them. Even my teachers were partial to my classmates. We were biased based on our financial background and since I couldn’t pay my school fees regularly, I was ridiculed. I felt insecure and avoided being with my classmates all the time. I once tried playing cricket with my friends. I couldn’t catch a ball. They made fun of me. Then came badminton. I was getting the hang of it, but my friend wanted to make fun of me using the game. He commented every time I hit the cock (shuttlecock, fellas), he passed on lame comments. I was fed up. I still play badminton but I’m not that interested. Every time I tried playing, I either failed to play properly or somebody discouraged me or commented on how I play.
This is the reason I was never interested in playing anything.
I love to run, jog, ride a bicycle, hiking and taking long walks. I am physically fit. (But really,really skinny.)
Coming back to the topic, is it really mandatory for men to be good at some sport???
What do you guys think?
