    Past Tomboy

    When I was a child, I for sure was a tomboy. I had two guy cousins in the same grade as me. I did everything with them to playing with bugs all the way to be being on the boys' team for boys chasing girls. I enjoyed being with boys more than girls when I was younger. However...

    Still Am, Somewhat

    I loved dinosaurs and robots. I can still draw Optimus Prime from memory, and I'll choose an effects-loaded action flick over a romantic comedy anyday.

    I Love Being a Tomboy...

    I grew up with brothers & think that if I was a girly girl I probably would have gotten beaten up on a regular basis.  So it was a good thing I fit in with them.  I loved my dirt bike, fort, and building all of those super cool ramps.  I still don't mind the...

    I Was a Tomboy and a Troublemaker

    I started being a tomboy when I was about 4 years old. My mother liked dresses for me and I hated them, I considered them unconfortable, I would take them out a time my mother gave up and allowed me to wear boy clothes. I only had a ponytail that disguise me as a girl At age 8...

    Putting Down The Fishing Pole, Picking Up The Lipstick...

    As a girl I enjoyed doing boy stuff. I preferred building forts to playing with dolls. I collected rocks, shells, did little physics experiments and wore boy clothes. I played baseball and finally was the only girl on the boy's soccer team for four years. I wasn't very good but...

    Extreme Is Extreme

    i was a tomboy. ya know, all those stereotypes: climbing trees, squeezing bugs, rolling in the mud type. it's not that big of a deal, but the bad thing was that i didn't know the definition of a tomboy when i was little. you don't know how screw up it is when your parents don't...

    And Still Not a Girlie Girl

    I looked more or less like the picture, cap, large jeans, shirt, sweat, sneakers. Until I was 14/15, that was all. I loved to be in the trees, did craps, I often came home with holes in my clothes, covered in mud, hurt because of a stunt, or bike broken. I swore, spit, whistled...

    Tom Man?

    Well, as a child I was definitely a tomboy, so does that mean now as a woman I am a tom man? I still have tomboy tendencies. It's just me.

    Tomboy With A Little Girlie Girl On The Side

    Growing up, I was never the girlie girl. Sure I had dolls and stuff, but I enjoyed playing with hot wheels and lego, as much as I did my dolls. I enjoyed putting on my skates and skating on the rink my dad flooded in the back yard in the winter, as much as I played hopscotch in...

    Ex-tomboy

    I've been a tomboy nearly all my life. When I were a kid/teen I woud rather die than put a skirt or dress. I was a carefree kid and hated anything that restricted my movements. Never really liked putting make-up on either, never got why I needed to paint myself to be liked. Or...

    I grew up on a farm in Hawaii. There was one other girl who lived in my neighborhood, but she was pretty much a Barbie doll queen, and not into getting muddy with us boys. I was more into bike riding, playing football & baseball, and getting muddy in the river. One afternoon, I...

    It was my parents form of discipline when we were very bad, I know it certainly taught us not to do it again. It didn't happen often, perhaps because we learned our lessons well.
