    My mum was just telling me i'm too feminine ******** that i'm meant to like boys stuff like football. Help me, I'm confused...
    Plant your fist in her face then butt her in the stomach, kick her into the kitchen and make sure she makes you a goddamn sandwich. That's what real men do.

    I don't like watching football either but I don't see it as a problem whatsoever. Masculinity is all about confidence and it is only lost by worrying whether you're masculine enough or not, why do you care so much what others think of you?

    I know a bit about it, but I wouldnt choose to watch it and I dont really see the attraction to playing it really..

    I guess everyone has their thing, so Im more of a music / individual sports person!

    Well like everyone said, we don't have to like what other like. I hate football, playing it, watching or thinking about it and all the media around it. I prefer basketball all the way.
    But I'm not a sports guy either way :/

    The majority of boys like football, probably.
    But that doesn't mean that you have to.
    I prefer cricket myself

    Does having a passion for football or liking it define your masculinity as most boys/males have a passion for it? I don't get it

    Basically, I was brought up in Africa and what I basically did was go to school, come back at home, eat, have tutorials, do my homework, watch cartoons or a drama and go to bed. In the weekends, I usually wash my school uniform, do my chores, eat, watch TV and go to bed.

    I have attempted and tried watching football so many times but I can't fathom what people see in it. Basically, what I see is boys kicking a ball, I seriously don't understand. I'm more into watching comedies, dramas, horror movies and expanding my knowledge on the internet.

    My parents and friends have talked me into watching football or having knowledge on it but I don't just see what's fun about it.

    I may not be pro level but I can play football. I just see it pointless IMO

    I really want to know and like football as it is generally what males like (I'm a boy btw) but i'm confused. Any help? Is it too late or what can I do for me to like it.

    My mum was just telling me i'm too feminine ******** that i'm meant to like boys stuff like football. Help me, I'm confused...
    have you tried playing it?

    No, I can't stand football, at all.

    Give me F1 (or even better, superbikes) any day.

    its good to like soemthign though. Like you I like comedies and films so watch plenty of those.

    I enjoy the gym and prefer basketball as a sport but I have always preferred playing sport more than watching it. Moto GP and F1 is my fav to watch

    You don't have to like something just because others do.
