    It's not too bad, I mean I have more friend-girls then friend-boys, and I'm absolutely okay with that.

    I never denied my emotional nature to myself and its been evident to others my whole life. I never struggled with it much, other than being picked on because I react. When I found mbti, being called a feeler naturally made sense.

    Gender role never had anything to do with it. I'm a man, but I don't, and never did, see T/F being related to either gender, and I still don't (I've met enough cold, T women and fuzzy F guys to see no strong correlation besides socialization).

    It was definitely pretty confusing for me to grow up as a male with Fe preference. It's such an atypical combination that it inevitably leads to communicative schisms. Especially in communication with stereotypical males. A lot of guys seem to be misjudging my sensitivity as a form of weakness and think I'm an easy target. And then they're even more confused when that turns out different. It took a long time but now that I'm in my twenties I've gotten comfortable with it. I've came to except that most people need to be around me for a while before they're used to me. To put it harsh : The dumber other people are or the more stereotypical they think the more confusing they find me.

    Similar situation for me as well... it really does seem hard to explain to women that there is a difference between being primarily a feeler and emotional. I understand why the latter isnt attractive. but I really hate it when.. ok here is an example, I heard this sad story about how someone with a pet dog had to put the babies down because there birth would have killled the bitch. and I said something along the lines of "thats so sad" and was immediatly left by a girl who had been showing signifigant interest in me. what the fuck is that? am I supposed to be an asshole?

    No and the sea is full of women who would seriously appreciate a man who is man enough to say what he feels. I think she is sad.

    Sorry if I interrupted the thread... I didn't go back to read and have mine set up to read the most recent post... I just couldn't pass this one up... it made me mad actually.

    I don't follow any gender stereotypes. No point, I do what I want.

    Kinna the same here. Too self conscious in a lot of way 'What if they think x? or y? Or even z?' - I just keep my mouth shut.

    What's cool is being able to talk about 'Oh, she married her wife a couple weeks ago' and everyone ELSE makes a conversational doubletake: "So she's lesbian?" - 'Yup, so? '

    Life would be easier if people didn't live off of stereotypes

    I said 'I feel a little emo today, its cool' - "Do you need a hug? Usually when someone says theyre emo they want to hurt themselves." - 'No, no, its cool actually. Might be the markers. '
