“…it’s easier to become friends with people who have the same interests as you.”

Some people think it’s hard for boys and girls to friends, what do you think? I don’t think it’s very hard. Maybe it just like, well, actually in a way it could be, because girls and boys — this is not true for everyone, for example, some tend to share different interests. for example, the guys at my school, there’re some girls in their groups too, so you know, it’s not exclusive to one gender only. Like in my product team class or personal projects since we’re an IB school, they sit around and watch a video sometimes and the friends in my group, we end up just like drawings. That’s not too gender-specific. Like girls playing with dolls boys playing with cars, I guess is a better example. Well, I guess what I’m trying to go at is that — it’s more — like it’s easier to become friends with people who have the same interests as you. It’s not something exclusive to either gender. Then again, there can be genuine sexism and stuff. Yeah, that can prevent guys and girls from being friends. There can also be transphobia and stuff. Like, there’s this trans girl who I’m friends with. She might not be accepted as a friend by some transphobic people, you know, it could just — a lot of, it could also be gender identity. Some people who disagree will not treat someone as they should be treated, and disregarding interests or stuff like that, just being mean to them because it’s who they are. So, it’s kind of sad, but, yeah, I feel like it’s mainly interest or some problems with the kids themselves, you know, being either racist, sexist, transphobic, stuff like that.
