I am a tomboy and honestly most women, (but not all) annoy me probably in the same aspects that they could annoy men. They are more emotional, insecure and in need of validating.I know I am one, and sometimes even hate my own estrogen.
Although you appropriatly state that men aquire more social rewards women have their way's of manipulating things in their direction also. I like the physicality of being a woman, it's somewhat artistic. As a matter of fact, I was originally an artist (and still am) before struck in the head with nanofever,and for some reason I tend to draw the female body more than not.

was a jock up until my car wreck (basketball blah blah). But as far
as selecting one over the other, that's a difficult call to make, I
find beauty in most human beings.
