You've Got Male...

Okay fellas... it's your turn now. Ladies stay tuned.

Brief Review

If you have an X and Y chromosome, you are a male. As a member of the male species, you have testes (slang: balls) but let's stay scientific. (Ya wit me?) Your testes are where cholesterol (fats) are transformed, like magic, into androgens or sex steroid hormones. Your body needs sex steroid hormones to help it develop your boyness or girlness. For example, in boys the hormone that you need to be stronger, talk deeper and "be a man" is testosterone. In girls, the sex hormones needed are estrogen and progesterone. But check this, girls have small amounts of testosterone and boys have small amounts of estrogen and progesterone.

Testosterone Tales

For you guys after puberty starts, testosterone flows like water. It binds to your muscles, making them stronger, and your vocal cords - making your voice deeper. It also goes to your brain making you nuts. (Just kidding.) Actually off the hook levels of testosterone can make some guys more aggressive, dominating or just plain out of control. Testosterone levels may go up when you are challenged or confronted. Some studies show that after athletic showdowns, testosterone levels are up in winners and down in losers. Makes you think huh??

Now all of this doesn't mean you need to go check your level to see if you're a playa or a hater. What's the point? Glad you asked. You need to understand that your body is a machine. It can run great or breakdown if you don't take care of it. Even though you may look or feel grown, your body is still developing.

You should also know that as a member of the male species, you are more likely to be violent or involved in violence. Your body may be set up to go off and you don't even know why. So before you swing on someone else, try to understand exactly what's going on. Listen to what your body is saying. Cuz it takes a bigger man to walk away. Be strong and represent in a positive way.

Are You Really Emotional?

  • Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed or angry.
  • Not really. I'm pretty chill.
  • I constantly feel like I'm on an emotional rollercoaster.
  • Are you kidding? I don't have time for emotions.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible
