Do you prefer to be male or female?

When I was small, I always wanted to be a boy. I grew up with a nickname Tomboy. I would roam the kampung with a bicycle, chopped banana trees, picking betel nuts (shell and sell to some Indians), catch tadpoles and earth worms (to be fed to ducklings) and etc etc.

I did play masak-masak with a neighbour once but I didn’t want to clean up and left her with the mess. After that, no one wants to play masak-masak with me anymore. Anyway, I played ‘cos I wanted to play with fire.

At one point, I even punched banana tree trunks (which is very soft) after watching too many Bruce Lee’s film. But sigh….I am still a girl. A girl who has many disadvantages because girls have rules.

Still I did not give up pretending I am a boy. When I was in Form Four and Form Five, I sat on the boys’ side of the classroom. God knows why I join the pack. And no, I wasn’t a butch, finding girlfriends. Not a lesbo too. I just want to be a man.

Now, if say, one day, a bright light shines down and a voice boom from above (picture Moses with the burning bush?) while you are in an open space :

Do you want to be a man or woman?

What will you choose? (assuming that nothing in your life gets upset, not like your wife will be living with a woman now instead of a man or your husband will turn Brokeback Mountain or you kids will have two dads etc, just imagine, pway-pway lah).

Me? Of course, I will shout – Give me a huge dose of testosterone and a big KKC plus a male chauvinist attitude.

  1. The first to comment!! LOL

    Make me a woman, anytime. I loathed nothing more than to bear with chauvinistic pigs.. so for sure I won’t be one myself too. Just my opinion, no hard feelings.. 🙂

  2. Sometimes, having the sense of the opposite sex does help, that you can get yr job done better, esp when you can feel and know the thinking and mindset of the opposite sex.

    that is my 2c worth

  3. Wouldn’t change who I am, am happy to be a woman, although I’ve always had more male friends than female since I was at school. My dad used to say I had plenty of bodyguards around, hehe.

  4. me think it is easier for a man to become a woman than a woman becoming a man.
    for man. they just have to cut it off, but for woman, how to stich a new functioniong one?

  5. Since this one is for play-play only…
    As a kid, I also always wanted to be a man. I read about a female tennis player went for a surgery and I thought it was just possible for me to do the same. Off course this was before I knew about ‘halal haram’.
    Even now, I have silly thought that I can be better if I’m a man…hehe! But looking at the HUGE responsibility my man has, I’d rather stay a woman, and I’m happy to be one..hehe.

  6. hmmm.. interesting thought..

    which bring me to think of people sitting in the sex change room waiting for the surgeons

    hope their mind is makeup by then.

  7. Though I sometimes bitch about being a woman, I still prefer to be one. lol

    If I can choose, can I say an attractive and ‘teh’ woman so I can enslave the male and make him work for me?? lol

  8. Adam: which cerita dongeng u heard that ALL women get multiple orgasm??? :p

    i wud choose woman anytime…there are miracles that only a woman can perform! 😉

  9. I used to think that being a man is easier.
    But now, even if i’m given a choice to choose my sex, I’d still want to be a woman 😀
    We can’t go wrong with skirts/dress/pants/jeans
    IT’s not wrong when we cry
    It’s not wrong when we dont know things
    It’s not wrong when we make mistakes
    yadda yadda yadda
    so woman anytime! 😉
