Do you find that your body might be viewed differently depending on your social context? For instance, a physical attribute that goes uncommented upon when you're at school say, might be very valuable when playing sport.

If you find that this happens, how do you feel about it? Are you glad that it happens or do you wish that it didn't?

Well...small breasts might be viewed differently in a social context than in sports. Say you have a small bust, that would be quite valuable when playing sports where you have to run around a lot cuz they wouldn't jiggle very much!!

Also, racehorse jockeys are usually pretty small people. This is really valuable when riding a horse because you weigh less. However, in the social context, being small may cause you to be looked down upon.
*mutters to self* Why is that?

Hmm. I agree with the sports thing, I got whacked in the boob one too many times while being goalie in soccer. Hurts like a be-otch. But other than that...
Well, at school, having a nice figure, and a nice bra to play up you boobies lol is of course appreciated... but going out shopping or what not I sometimes get dirty looks from women... hey I didn't do anything!!
