Top Ten Struggles of Being a Tomboy

The Top Ten

You are forced to wear feminine clothes by your parents

I am in seventh grade and my mom wants me to go to Resurrection High School which is an all girls school and you have to wear skirts. For me as a tomboy is a nightmare going there but I want to go to a public high school. Cause my mom says I can go to a public high school if I get good grades in eighth grade

why does mothers and fathers want their girl to be "girly" its ok to be tomboy like why those parents are racist

I don't know why parents are like this

Yeah, this happens to me a lot. So annoying >:(

Some girly girls hate you

The only time Girly girls hate tomboys is when they are in second grade.By middle school they have matured out of it and the border between feminine and masculine blurs.I think only the "I'm not like other girls" type fells this way.

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

Some people think you're a lesbian

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.

*sweats nervously*

Stop these stereotypes!

You are forced to wear makeup by your parents

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.

Yep. Every time I go to a school dance or wedding

Some think you hate girly girls when you don't

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 them, but I can never agree with them. - PhoenixAura81

I don’t hate girly girls, some of my friends are and they are nice people.

Some of your family want you to be girly

This applies to all of my family members. My mom wants me to wear very feminine clothes and my dad gets mad at me for wearing hoodies and flannel shirts

My Asian relatives think that since I'm born a girl, I have to act like a girly girl forever.

that happens a lot in gacha life or gacha life silent scream

You get mistaken for a man

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.

You can't wear jeans if you need to wear formal clothes

This rule is annoying

You have to wear a dress if youu have to wear formal clothes (for girls)

You can't walk properly if you are forced to wear high heels

I trip in high heels sometimes

Which is why I avoid high heels. If I wear a dress with anything, I wear flats (or sparkly Converses ;).

Everyone thinks you are good at sports even if you're not

I'm kind of a tomboy, but I really hate sports and I prefer playing video games and stuff like that.

I'm actually good at sports especially in soccer but if you talk about badminton and volleyball, I'm pretty weak at them lol

Some tomboys probably relate to this

I’m okay at sports, but not the best

The Contenders

Tomboys usually wake up late and love discussing boyish things

I like to talk about Star Wars and superhero movies with my male cousins sometimes

People might think you are weird because they will mistake your gender
Everyone judges you based on your looks

Look I agree I wear tshirts and boyish stuff, but it is much better than walking in a short skirt and wear heels

People think you are trans
