    My friend confessed to learning cheerleader routines with his sisters as a kid. I had to admit I enjoyed playing paper dolls with my sister. Anybody else have things you enjoyed doing as a child that the other little boys just weren't doing?

    great topic.

    I was going through old pictures with my mom a few weeks ago, to post on facebook.. and i came upon the infamous "Easy bake oven" of Christmas 1990. My entire family, grandma and aunts were all up in arms when my mom decided to honor my request for an easy bake oven. when i got it, it was winning a fucking jack pot. I cooked the most delectable non edible brownies ever. And for some reason i like to sprinkle in legos for garnish and serve them to other people.

    I also was completely infatuated with the Home alone Talk boy. and Grew up on soap operas and liked radio programs ..so around age 8 or 9 i began making elaborate radio soaps, saving up to buy tapes and multiple recorders to dub my own little soap.. i think it was called Ashford Falls.. then i discovered Tori Amos (blegh embarrassing) and it was then "Past the mission"... and i did all of the voices. It was so geeky to think back on it, but brilliant. My step grandmother, who recently passed away was the only one who listened to my soaps.. which even had background music.. she lived in indiana and every month i would mail her tapes and then she would call and talk about my radio soap and the characters.

    After she died, her will had all of my tapes... i listen to the shit i said at 8 or 9 years old (like a storyline i made up where this woman was forced to give herself an abortion by her rapist)...and i think "what a sick fuck!" However... ge i was so smart. yay child me.

    Also I drew alot as a kid and teen.. when i was 5 though, that same grandmother always encouraged me to draw dresses for her. ..she even made one of my designs. The rest of my family..except for my mother discouraged this. My mom knew better, having been a sociology major.

    I also played with dolls and even coke bottles and pencils like they were characters. i was just always interested in story telling.. whether it was comic books or radio soaps..which translates into the interests i hold now... like music, audio engineering, writing, art and psychology and cooking.

    Ummm I did a lot of things other boys didn't do. None of them revealed my sexual preference though. I was just insane back then, and it only got worse, I just channel it better now. icon_cool.gif

    Macrame. I also once helped sew my mother's granny squares together to form an afghan. When I lost the needle, my father told me to get up and sit down in the chair until I sat on it.

    Oddly, my father sewed and repaired his own clothes, even as a butch hunter.

    I talked to girls, kissed them and didn't beat them up (kindergarten)
    I danced to music on the radio in our living-room
    When my brother wanted to play with our toy-cars, I wanted to play car-ballet with them.

    I was also meticulous about taking care of my toys. My brothers would break everything they got in ten minutes but I put mine away neatly, even putting them back in the boxes if they came in boxes. That continues to this day actually. I drive the other teachers crazy with how neatly I arrange the equipment in the storage room.

    I'd make elaborate settings and environments for my action figures - terrains, buildings, etc.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only kid that showed major signs of being gay when I was little.

    My thing was that I was obsessed with the power rangers- i had sweatshirts and sweatpants in each of the colors and would wear them. Embarrasingly true.

    I also watched Brady Brunch and thought Greg was hot. Enough said.

    I used to play with curtain tassels pretending it was someone with long hair, if good music was on I would pretend the tassel was singing...icon_neutral.gif

    I was unbelievably obsessed with Power Rangers too! I had the toys, joined the official fan club, met Jason David Frank at my town's karate academy (I didn't even do martial arts!), and my mom made me a Blue Ranger costume for Halloween! Fortunately that just made me popular with all the other boys in school because most boys were into Power Rangers at the time. Although I have to admit that the Pink Ranger was my favorite because she was a gymnast like me and had Tommy - woof!

    I would have to say gymnastics was what made me different from most little boys. Even though my gym had quite a few boys on the team, none of them went to my school. I didn't know of any other boys from my school who did gymnastics.

    When I was four or five, I really liked playing house. After that, it was mostly about me coming up with elaborate ways that my He-Man doll would be forced to remove his clothes in battle.
