Top Ten Girly Girl Stereotypes

I'm not a girly girl (I'm not a tomboy either), but these are the common stereotypes about girly girls.

The Top Ten

1 Their favorite color is pink

I'm a girl and I like pink but I am not obsessed with it

2 They are ditzy

I'm a girl and I'm NOT ditzy at all! 😠

3 They are anti-feminist
4 They hate tomboys

Not true. My 9 yr old cousin is part girly girl and I'm a tomboy and we like to hang out together during family parties.

It’s just the Stereotypical tomboys I loath. - TopTennerPerson

This is true about a good portion (I repeat: A good portion, not all) of the ones I’ve encountered to be honest. They call me sexist for supposedly hating all girly girls even though I’ve clearly stated that I was only referring to some of them, then they start spewing out bull about how not some, but all tomboys are transgender and violent. I understand completely why people are upset with some of the things I said. I get it. I wasn’t in the right either, and I’m sorry, but I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: I do not hate all girly girls. I only hate the bad ones. - 3DG20

5 They don't swear

I'm a girly girl & I swear a lot!

I was girly when I was a kid but I love swearing since I was 10 - RoseCandyMusic

6 They wear too much makeup

I'm a girl and I think that makeup is not necessary

7 They are mean
8 They own a lot of pink things

I am a girl and I do own pink stuff but I also own stuff in an array of other colors as well

9 They are weak

I'm a girl and I am very strong!

10 They don't like horror movies

I'm a girl and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE horror movies

The Contenders

11 They only hang out with girly girls
12 They love dresses and skirts

I'm not a girly girl, but a womanly woman. I wear dresses and skirts most of the time, I very rarely swear and I despise violence. Really only these three items apply to me. - Britgirl

Look I was girly when I was a kid I own a lot of dress but I never own a skirt - RoseCandyMusic

13 They love boy bands

Again, I was girly when I was a kid but I never have an interest to listen to boy bands - RoseCandyMusic

Uhh if I like stuff like TØP, P! ATD, My Chemical Romance does that count?!

14 They worship princesses

Why worship princesses if there are queens and godesses - RoseCandyMusic

I worship queens - Nonpointed

15 They say "like" and "OMG" a lot
16 They aren't violent
17 They are straight

I am the biggest girly girl yet I am bisexual. Yes, technically I'm half straight but I mostly lean more towards the lesbian side. I have never dated a guy before only had crushes while I have dated 2 girls so far (both were girly to). Being gay doesn't mean you don't contribute to the gender roles assigned to your gender.

18 They want to be housewives

I am very girly yet I don't like the idea of being a housewife. While I would love to have kids I don't want to be stuck in the house cleaning and cooking all day long! I want to be a doctor/nurse.

19 They cry a lot
20 They like wearing Jewelry
21 They are stupid
22 They want to be like Barbie or Bratz

Damn it you spellchecker. I was typing Barbie and Bratz not Barbie and Brat

I’m a girly girl and I want to be like Elle Woods and Wonder Woman.

23 They like to play with dolls and tea parties
24 They want prince charming
25 They hate sports
26 They like Taylor Swift
27 They are obsessed with shopping
28 They don't play video games
29 They are clean freaks
30 They get overexcited when they get a picture of a boy

My ears really hurt by now because my roommates in boarding school always overreact when a boy sends them a picture. I mean just his arm.

31 They hate getting dirty
32 They love romantic movies
33 They hate action movies
34 They flirt with practically every boy they see

Yep...can’t stand the girly girls who do this. And while I know that not all of them do it, let’s be honest: the majority of girly girls (and actually most girls in general) flirt almost constantly.

I’m a very girly girl, but I am TOO shy to flirt with any guy! ☺️😳😰

35 They are over dramatic

a stereotype they deserve. Most of them are over dramatic

36 They are all extroverts

Some people think that girly girls love making lots of friends to get more popular and so they can gossip about others. I'm a girly girl but I love spending time alone and I feel drained after interacting with other people. Most of the tomboys at my school are actually extroverts.

37 They want to be like Barbie or Brat
38 They want to have children

I'm a super girly girl but I hate being around young children and babies. They are gross, annoying, and anxiety-inducing. I just dream about going on romantic vacations with my future partner/husband without screeching crotch goblins!
