    So what if I wear kinda guyish clothes?

    I don't judge you.. So why judge me? Not that I actually listen to what you have to say because your opinions don't matter. To me, what you wear shows more about you. The kind of person that you want to be. Don't let anybody tell you what to wear or how to dress yourself. Just...

    My mom always brings me to shop clothes with my

    younger sister. I am 20 years old next year and I never liked to do such thing. Sometimes I would just sit waiting for them outside the shop, among with most women's husbands or boyfriends. I share the same desperation to get out of a clothes's shop as men. However I like to...

    I'm not like most girls.

    I don't need to have my makeup and hair done every day. I don't spend a ridiculous amount of money on manicures or pedicures. I don't make my family buy me designer clothing. I rather the simple things than the expensive ones.

    I am considering getting short hair

    when I get a place of my own. I have never tried makeup but I am not interested in the slightest to try it. I like natural beauty, and personally, I think it is a waste of time applying one thing or more on your face. I strongly dislike dresses (especially ones that reveal skin...

    At work I was told that a group of my coworkers

    were joking about how they believe me to be "half man". I tried not to let it get to me seeing as I am a very strong independent woman who has accomplished a lot in my 25 years on this earth. My problem is everyone else having a problem with my personality. I have been a tomboy...

    I Wanna Be Me. Is That To Much?

    I know this is kinda dumb but, my grandmother doesn't want me to be a tomboy. Every time I even mention the word tomboy she just, starts on about how I'm a girl and I shouldn't go around acting like a guy. I'm not acting like a guy. I'm being me. I prefer wearing my long shorts...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    I was told that I sounded masculine on the

    Girly Girl ... Uhm A No !

    Well I'm about half way on the scale to "Girly Girl" to "Tomboy". I always and maybe still will hate how girls are expected to wear fashionable clothes that costs so much money, like I would just keep it simple, jeans, t-shirts- sweaters, pretty much all I need. Sometimes even...
