    That is because it will be something mummy and daddy made them do/remaining doing.
    Wait until they get to uni. Then they stop all of it as they never were that interested to begin with/take up boyfriends as their only hobby. I've seen this happen so many times. Girls who have numerous hobbies and are even competing in some of them all of a sudden drop everyone like a stone come uni and go hunting after **** :rofl: To be honest it is quite sad.

    Not true. I have hobbies at uni and my friends come along and do them too, or they have hobbies of their own. Like, one of my friends is really keen on debating and another one goes to salsa classes, another does loads of first aid. Some of my friends aren't in societies but they really like playing the ukulele or drawing pictures. I keep getting distracted from my work to write poems. My problem is wanting to do too many things, actually. I'm your classic "Pick up a hobby and drop it a few years later and do something else" type. I'll find something else that interests me and start that and then they start demanding you devote more time to it so then you have to choose. I don't want to miss out on loads of things because I've devoted all my time and energy to gymnastics or something. Other people have one thing they love more than anything else and that's the only hobby they really want to do. And then some people don't necessarily shout about their hobbies all the time, but that doesn't mean they don't have them. They might really like baking, or collecting buttons. How do you know?

    A few facts about boobs...
    No matter how small, they are not comfy to lay on.
    Getting hit/pushed/punched/flicked/squeezed-a-bit-too-hard in the boob reeeeally hurts!!
    Erect nipples cannot be avoided... The awkward bra which you can see your erect nipple through is always the worst.
    I've seen a couple of girls mention how awkward getting erect nipples can be but what I don't get is why it's such a big issue. You'd have to be looking very hard to notice it through a bra surely? Seems rather insignificant compared to the issue of getting an erection as a guy.

    No, they don't. They choose to. My mother didn't take a single day off work after either my birth or that of my sister.
    I don't think it's a choice a lot of the time haha, some people are physically built to have children, others aren't and come across difficulties/complications. I'm sure if you had a vag and tore it round to your ******** during childbirth then having time off of work wouldn't be a choice as much as a physical necessity haha

    I thought there were contraceptives that do that?

    My ex had that bar thing in her arm.

    She'd be weeks late, then have the most violently abrasive bouts of PMS. Honestly. Warlord material. There's another gender specific phenomenon.
    There are contraceptive that girls can use to stop/prevent their periods but it's not irreversible and it's really bad for you, the lining of the womb is nutrient rich, obviously you've got to grow a baby in there, so if you're not shedding it in a period you get a build up of this nutrient rich lining which is a perfect home for all sorts of bacteria biology~

    I don't think a lot of guys know how often clubs etc put sofas/armchairs/other fancy seating and even tables in girls toilets. Whenever I tell my male friends they respond with a beautiful mix of curiosity and jealousy.

    Also guys don't know how lucky they are that even on hot days, there is usually a layer of material between their thighs and the seat. Tights are oddly stifling but without that holy nylon protection, if you're wearing a skirt your thighs stick to your chosen seat with such force that when you stand up the chair either comes with you or some of your skin is left behind.

    Also I remember having a conversation with one of my guy mates when we were 17. And he told me how he thought a period was something that just comes all of a sudden, then you run the toilet, have it in a few minutes, then that's your period over. It's really not. It can last weeks if you're unlucky and it can be so awful, like I always imagine a bad period to be like being kicked in the balls because the description is so similar. Period pains can give you a fever and make you throw up and pass out etc and they can give you headaches and backaches as well as womb cramps. I've never been so grateful for codeine.

    Also. Girls. No one tells you that you're probably going to take a **** when you're having a baby. In front of everyone. Why do people not tell us this. I never want children, I can't be dealing with strangers watching me poop.

    That's a good point but in reality it would be blatantly obvious what he was doing and he'd get booked for unsporting behaviour/the linesman wouldn't even think to flag for it. It's also against the rules to just wander off the pitch, it's OK if you fall over or can't stop yourself of course but if you were doing it deliberately it actually would be breaking a specific rule.
    Yeah, looks like you're right.

    Actually, I just looked it up in FIFA's official laws of the game, and apparently if any player leaves the field of play without the permission of the referee, they are (for the purposes of the offside rule) considered to be standing on their own goal line. So if the goalkeeper did step behind his line, it wouldn't make any difference - he'd still be considered to be on the pitch. So it wouldn't have worked anyway

    Strange thing to think about though - if you're not even involved in your team's defensive play (e.g. if you're a forward or something), going for a walkabout off the pitch could strictly speaking mean you're playing an opposing attacker onside at the other end lol...

    Seems to me like your issue isn't girls with hobbies, it is how well off parents are. Every time a girl has replied to you saying she has hobbies you jump down her throat essentially saying "Yeah well you are probably rich so you don't count" and berating them just because they may have had a different/more financially stable upbringing to your own. All it may prove is that girls from different backgrounds may like to do different things, not that girls don't have hobbies. Also just because "mummy and daddy" encouraged them to do a particular hobby doesn't mean that they are automatically no longer interested in it when they get older and would rather "chase after ****." Here is something shocking for you: girls like to have sex! What about the boys who chase after girls for sex? Do they not have hobbies or is that completely different because they are male? You make a lot of generalisations based on some people you may know at Uni. I'm sorry but it doesn't count for the rest of the female population.

    Righty, what is going on here is something I've seen happen a lot on this forum - North/South divide.
    You have only lived in the South, which is why you are more use to people of all genders doing hobbies. Go North (aka above Birmingham), and what I described is true 99% of the time and for many southerners who go to uni in the north. Every girl I lived with had no hobbies. Only one girl I met had a hobby which was martial arts, yet her class was 10+ guys to one girl. This was true for every group there and in other places.
    As I said, you have had/still have a rather unique upbringing.
    I don't know what your original statement was bit I'm assuming it was something like 'girls don't have hobbies'
    Now, you are backtracking, and admitting that really it is only girls who live in north England/Scotland who don't have hobbies.

    I just wanted to say that the majority of guys I know DON'T have hobbies. Yes, they will play football together... But it's not a hobby cos they don't do it regularly or for a team, they just do it when the sun is out down the park or something.
    99% of guys spend the majority of the time playing on their Xbox or ps3. I do not count this as a hobby.
    I play netball weekly, we are in a league competing against 8 other teams, there are several other teams who are above and below the standard of our league, aswell as other individuals who do not play for a certain team and just play for fun. These people are all female. Netball being their hobby.

    I don't know if you would count the gym as a hobby either, but me and 5 of my friends go 2/3 times a week, just for general fitness; you can't say gyms are dominated by men because about half of the people I regularly see there are women, and the majority of fitness classes are filled with women and maybe the odd man.
    It may not be seen as a hobby, but atleast it is fitness an is good for you instead of sitting on your bum all day staring at a tv screen

    Don't be silly, oh the notions you women get into your head.

    Clearly mere females are not able to have any thoughts that are not an attempt to get in our (male) pants. Unless of course they are pushed to do them by a male on which they subservient to, such as their fathers prior to their marriage or their husbands.

    Besides, what hobbies could a woman have? Their delicate brain chemistry rules our taxing their minds, reading is known to overheat their little heads. Physically they might perform some suitable sporting activities, such as tennis - provided they do not exert themselves into a sweat, that would be very unattractive and must not be done.

    Baking could be possible, but surely they must bake little cakes to attract a potential husband? It is also good practice for pleasing their future husband. Button collecting is similar, it is clearly building up a stock for fixing a husbands missing buttons after he returns from a hard-days work. You need to start these things early!

    Right, there are such things as bras which don't actually hide them, trust me. Also, girls don't spend all their time staring at guys crotches. It isn't something I ever actually think about, so half of the time you probably wouldn't even notice. Whereas guys frequently look at a girls boobs. And guys seem to think it's hilarious. I imagine it's just as awkward being a guy with an erection to be honest.

    So what you're saying is... that people who don't have money to spend on hobbies don't spend money on hobbies? What a crazy idea.

    You've obviously never been/seen the one guy that gets an erection in a tracksuit.

    You make it sounds as if guys stare so hard at boobs that they burn holes in the tops covering them. Perhaps it's just me but it's rarely obvious to me. I've noticed a couple of times for sure, that's it. I've had a couple of girls comment on me before when I was flaccid. One person thought I was hard, I wasn't. The other commented how I might poke someone's eye out because of the trousers I was wearing being tight-ish. They weren't tight, but not loose either. The problem would have been bigger if I weren't flaccid.
