To be honest, if I had the time or perseverance, I would still be into legos. But I honestly don't understand these gender boxes. I feel like it's gotten to the point where we avoid things with gender tags on them. For example, I don't like pink, and I'm not sure if it's because I just don't like the color or if it's because it's considered 'girly'.

Likewise about the lego. I adore lego and it took me literally years of asking for my parents to finally get me some lego for my nineteenth birthday. I had a whole tool chest of lego when I was younger. I have no idea where it is now. They probably sold some of it. I loved getting all the stuff out, arranging it, reading the booklet and proceeding through the instructions for however long it took to make it. I would always do it as soon as I got it. One of our family friends have a son and he used to break my lego whenever he came over. I have never forgiven him for that.

Also, on pink, I avoid it because it would mean that I was submitting to the gender stereotype and I don't want to allow people to assume that of me at all more than necessary. I decided whilst climbing a tree when younger that skirts were clearly impractical for that activity and thus I would avoid everything girly. That's developed into now, in which I am extremely aware of being perceived as stereo-typically girly and avoid it at all cost. I don't think being a girl is a bad thing - I think people shouldn't be judged on things they can't make choices about; how very Ti of me - but I know that allowing people to see me that way will place expectations and restrictions on me that I do not want. So, that's my interpretation on pink.

I'm totally on the same page when it comes to pink. It's not that I hate the color, but it's like everyone assumes you are a girly girl to be wearing it.

As a kid we had lots of LEGO, and I still buy the occasional sets whenever I feel like it. (25 and child at heart! ;D ).
Reading all the stories, I feel quite privileged. We were with 4 kids, and while we also had barbies and girly toys, we had lots of LEGO and neutral toys, and we weren't forced into just playing with the girly ones.
As a matter of fact, I still enjoy the memories of us playing together, and my brother (my fellow INTP sibling) playing with a barbie pretending it to be Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. :'D

When I started my study mechanical engineering, I was one of 3 girls out of 150 students. I'm pretty sure I was the least girly out of them XD
I've been mistaken for a boy on occasion due to my short hair, lack of make-up and general laid-back comfortable clothing 'style' (aka, average jeans, T-shirt or hoody)
I guess I've stopped caring about the gender labels in shops long ago, and merely look at what interests me. I suppose there are plenty of guys who have to shop for their favorite mags in the woman's sections Smile
Although it still pisses me off when someone says I should be liking something, "because you're a girl" >_>;
