(Original post by wilsonsamm)
used to wear a kilt quite a bit.
I'd say that conforms to maleness... unless you forgot your sporran, in which case it's a bad mistake (I have, in the past, although you don't notice you have until someone tells you). Wearing a kilt is the epitome of being comfortably male! :cool:

Conform:

  • I wear lots of silver rings, long beads and pendants

  • I have NEVER read OK, Heat or Gratzia, and I never wil.

If swearing is a male 'thing' then that's another defy for me, because I never do it.

Hmm. Okay let's see:
(I'm a girl)

Conform:
I wear blusher and mascara.
I love wearing decent clothes and bags, and I usually notice what everyone else is wearing
I think my pets are pretty nifty.
I have long-ish hair and I like to use nice shower gels and shampoo & so on
I'm probably a bit sensitive really.
I do think good table manners are essential
I have a problem with over-analysing everything (e.g. noticing the number of X's at the end of an msn conversation, ahh.)
I have no interest in boys who only want one thing. Not for long anyway.
I like cheesy friendship-bonding sleepovers, the more Pringles the better.
I don't mind the sweat/mud disgusting-ness of gigs and festivals too much.
I love proper hugs.

Defy:
I study further maths and tonnes of science, and am applying for physics at uni.
I watch and love Top Gear.
I really quite like LOTR, heh.
I can't stand long chats about which shoes someone is going to wear that night etc. - I just don't care really.
I watched loads of the World Cup 2006 and accidentally got rather into it.
I can't stand magazines.
My friends are the sort who enjoy making each other all laugh - not *****ing about others.
I'm not a *~*ChoCoHoliC!!~*~
I can't do more than one thing at once.
I'm not a neat-freak, not even remotely.
I wear a desperately crap chunky digital watch. Sort of hiking-style with a compass and everything. I find myself drawn to it though!

me again! (I am a thread limpet)

C

- I love my pets.
- I say "yayness", "cuteness" and "awww" far too much
- I use arty quotes and lyrics as my MSN name, have my font set to papyrus and use teal as my colour. And I use arty pictures, not just a boring photo
- I always use Eldar when playing Dark Crusade... possibly because they are pretty.
- I hate larger, and am not fond of beer and ale...
- I adore Balieys and Archers, esp if it is entire litre bottle to be downed at a party (how I was still sober, I shall never know)

D

- I am not "horse mad", a "chocoholic" or a "total flirt".
- Joining a club etc for the sake of flirting with men is the last thing on my mind...
- I scare people
- I never follow fashion. If my tastes coincide, good for fashion, but I never follow it.
I have never worn skinny jeans, military jacket, footless tights, ballet pumps, you get the picture...
ditto! My general garb is rough trousers, trainers and a plain, baggy t-shirt. Why dress up for work? The lads are all slobs anyway.
- I was never drawn to ballet, Brownies (I did go to Brownies...but I got kicked out), Girl Guides or charity work. I ride my loony horses and play soldiers instead.

I keep reading "chick lit" as "clit lick".....
