    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...

    Always Have Been, Always Will Be

    I am not going to change. It doesn't matter how old I get, or that Im a mother, I will always have my tomboy tendencies. It's just me. The thought of changing my ways is overwhelming. Although I probably have toned down some, I am still and will always be a tomboy. :)

    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...

    My family says I'm more of a tomboy

    than a girly girl. I believe it's true because I don't like doing a lot of girly things. I have a sister and hang out with her, but I hang out with my brothers a bit more, even though I love them all equally. :)

    Be Proud Of Who You Are.

    Hey people, I want to encourage you to be proud of who you are. It takes guts to be a proud Tomboy, to hang out with the lads, to be independent, enjoy sport/keep fit, to be headstrong and confident and different and in control of your life. Never change for anyone, friends...

    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...

    My Choice..

    I was always a tomboy from the days I can remember. A tomboy is just female who enjoys what society generally says she is not entitled to. (Sport, pants, top position, science etc). It is society that has placed a heavy boundary on how the sexes should act and look like. The...
