I don't know about the girls' likes or dislikes regarding this, but I'm confident to say majority of us males, preferred swords or weapons when were still kids and probably even now. Of course, it's not always about swords as there is a variety of weapons or combat oriented things boys like. So why do boys like swords or weapons in general? Girls like them too, but I don't think a lot of them are into swords or weapons as us. Feel free to share what weapon or combat style you like as a kid and why, also include your answer to my question.
