Hi guys I would like to discuss about a topic. Is it a must for males (both men and boys) to be interested and participate in sports? I'm a person who don't really like sports. I don't watch matches like soccer or basketball matches. But, here is the thing. It seems that most males like to watch sports matches and play games like soccer, basketball etc. I have been made fun of for being a male and not being interested in sports by my own family members and relatives. I have told some people that I dun like sports because most of the time, the players like to be ruthless and push you about so that they can take the soccer ball/ basketball from you. And they blame you to the core if you don't help the team win in the game. They immediately reply to me " You are so sissy" or " You are so gay". I can't express in words the hurt that I felt when I hear these remarks. It seems that as a male, I must enjoy and accept these physical attacks and roughness in sports games. The only sport that I enjoy is badminton. It's mostly a 1 vs 1 player game. And nobody will push you about or blame you for losing. I would never say no to a badminton game. (But then, again, there are some people who told me that badminton is not really a manly sport because there is no roughness involved in the game like soccer, rugby etc.) What are your opinions about this?
