Top Ten Struggles of Being a Tomboy
The Top Ten
I usually like wearing graphic t-shirts most of the time, but sometimes when I go shopping, I have to buy some “trendier” things because my mom says graphic t-shirts can’t be the only things I wear. My mom does say that I cooperate the best when it comes to clothes shopping though.
I am also pretty sure I wouldn’t be allowed to wear a women’s tuxedo for a formal dance. - PhoenixAura81
There has been a case where girly girls did not accept me for being a more tomboyish girl who didn’t want to listen to their boy bands and wear a bunch of jewelry.
Too bad no one cares what their snobby a**es think about them. - 3DG20
Like every time I go out I have this pressure of parents saying me to put makeup just to look good. But for me I don't care if I look good.
Yes I hate this
Stop these stereotypes!
I hate this so much! I'm a tomboy and straight yet the girly girls in my school call me a dyke and a lesbian. Turns out that one of the girls who bully me is bisexual!
I am not lesbian, not all tomboys are lesbian, just because they dress boyish does not mean they are one. I am a bisexual who actually leans more towards men.
I don’t hate them, but I can never agree with them. - PhoenixAura81
There is a huge difference between calling out some annoying people and hating every girly girl. Please learn it. - 3DG20
No, I don't, I love my friends unless they're meany bastard! - Crystalsnow
I don’t hate girly girls, some of my friends are and they are nice people.
Some people think I look like a boy.
My mom thinks that I have a guy's voice
My friend thinks I have the voice of a boy, and that it would be perfect for punk music. I take that as a compliment since I want to sing in a punk band, but I think my voice is a bit girly when I am singing, but when I am talking, it sounds deeper.
Again, you don’t have to be girly to not be mistaken for a man. - 3DG20
It seems tomboys would rather be men than girly girls anyway.
My Asian relatives think that since I'm born a girl, I have to act like a girly girl forever.
You have to wear a dress if youu have to wear formal clothes (for girls) - RoseCandyMusic
Which is why I avoid high heels. If I wear a dress with anything, I wear flats (or sparkly Converses ;). - PhoenixAura81
I'm actually good at sports especially in soccer but if you talk about badminton and volleyball, I'm pretty weak at them lol - Crystalsnow
I'm kind of a tomboy, but I really hate sports and I prefer playing video games and stuff like that. - PhoenixAura81
Some tomboys probably relate to this - RoseCandyMusic
The thing with sports is, I am not good at them, not because I hate playing it or because I don’t have the energy. I have both, the thing is rather that I don’t have the organized, quick thinking skills for sports. I sometimes would break a rule for not doing a step right, there is just so much rules to sports and you have to do it quickly. I am not the organized kind of person or the quickest thinker. I am more into free sports like skating, a sport that isn’t very organized, I never skated, but I feel like I would be decent at it since it’s not organized, and I have the energy for it.
Look I agree I wear tshirts and boyish stuff, but it is much better than walking in a short skirt and wear heels
