    at the shops. - I hate wearing dresses and never wear them unless it's school uniform or a formal dinner. - I only wear makeup for special occasions, and even then it's really light makeup. - Growing up, I played with toy cars, stuffed animals, and video games. Sometimes I...

    I can't say I'm a total tomboy

    but I'm not a girly girl. I hate dresses, I would never wear them to anything even in weddings. I do wear nail polish often but in certain colours only. I never liked being a girl, wearing skirts and dresses all the time, wearing makeup like a clown. I hate makeup, I don't have...

    I'm too lazy to act like a girl.

    That takes some serious effort that I'm not willing to put forth. I grew up with an older brother who had a lot of influence on me. I found myself copying his actions or the nuances in his speech. I would always want to hang out with his male friends when I was a toddler. I...

    I haven't always been a tomboy.

    When I was little, I admit, I wore a lot of dresses, played with barbies, but that all changed when I had a younger brother. As he grew up, I left my toys to play with him, to run, jump, playing with mud. Since I never had a sister or girl cousins, I began to play with my boy...

    I am and always have been.

    I am not the most feminine but I love what I am. I am a country girl not afraid to get my hands dirty and do the hard jobs. Never have really understood women. I have my moments of course. I hang out with mostly men just always get along better with them. I am happy and...

    Caution: May turn into a rant (but a tame,

    mature one) I love all types of music, especially rock and alternative, but I only like music with male singers, unless the song has a beautiful female vocal in it (talking about the voice being beautiful). I love video games I love working out, but I hate when men stare...

    I'm Alex and I'm a tomboy.

    I have an older brother who I am very close to and who I confide to more than my parents. My dad is pretty cool too, but my mum, we have a lot of fights. She always was the one who wants me to be more girly. She wants me to go shopping with her, talk about boys, gossip all the...

    I am a straight up, tomboy.

    Although I don't mind getting dressed up for special occasions, I rather be at home in basketball shorts. Every awards day, I wore jogging pants. That's just who I am. People can hate all they want; but it's not my fault that I rather were basketball shorts, than shorts that my...

    My parents don't buy video games

    for me since I'm a girl, and they'd rather get me pretty dresses and all that stuff. They atleast bought me one years ago, but it was a pretty chill game. It sucks to feel like you're forced to keep to gender stereotype.

    As a child, I wasn't completely unusual.

    I played with dolls, and had tea parties, and liked dresses. But that wasn't the only thing I loved doing. Even more than dolls, tea parties, and dresses, I loved to wrestle, play sports, climb trees, go on "quests" and become the "hero", sword fight, and watch action movies...

    Absolutely

    When I was young they had to wrestle me into a dress. I was jeans and bare feet, climbing trees, playing football, rough and tumble.  Almost all of my best friends have been guys.  No particular reason but we seem to have more in common.  I don't want to talk about make-up...

    As long as I can remember I've preferred

    wearing boys clothes and hanging out with boys. My hair is short and I speak kinda low (except when I get excited!) The confusing part about all of this is that I assumed I was gay, but I'm attracted to guys as well as girls so I'm pretty comfortable being bisexual, it just took...

    I wish the tomboy stereotype didn't involve all

    Tomboys playing sports. I'm a tomboy who hates sports. I'm artsy. Why is that even a stereotype? I know "Girly girls" who love sports more than I do.

    I've always been a tomboy,

    I guess growing up with two brothers was a big influence and the fact my dad got us all into riding motobikes. The only time I wore girly clothes was when I didn't really have a say in what I wore which was pretty young. As my hobbies were playing football and riding motobikes I...
