Deep emotional ties are okay but they're not getting anything done so developing them is inherently worth less than playing soccer together.
If these are your priorities that's one thing but to use them to paint an entire gender's priorities, not to mention the value of said priorities (and not to mention that many of them may *gasp* actually think the same way you do) is, again, incredibly sexist.
This results in a lot of girls who are proud to be "one of the guys", who likes being the only girl in a group of boys, who thinks she's better than the other "catty, bitchy" girls, not realizing she's one herself.
