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

My mom is really set on me not looking like tomboy; no short hair or boyish clothes. All I can wear that’s remotely boyish is my uniforms or team shirts and hoodies. Although I am allowed to wear baseball hats.

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.

I have gotten bullied for everything autism/adhd/tomboyishness! I am kelly bulanek

Girly girls always seem to hate the fact that I hang out with guys but it doesn’t get to me.

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.

Stop these stereotypes!

Yes I hate this

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 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.

My dad is fine with it but my mom can’t stand it

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

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.

No, I don't, I love my friends unless they're meany bastard!

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

I don’t hate them, but I can never agree with them.

You get mistaken for a man

I have a pretty deep voice for a girl. When I first sent a voice recording on a chat room in Amino, one member on it (he was one of the members I commonly chat with) said my voice was manly, even though I’m a girl. When I’m recorded or on video and I happen to speak, my voice sounds like a teenage boy’s. When I make Roblox based characters, their often mistaken for guys and my winter outfit of my regular Roblox avatar is mistaken for a male.

It seems tomboys would rather be men than girly girls anyway.

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.

Some people think I look like a boy.

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

I HATE dresses although my mom always makes me wear them on special occasions and I hate it

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

This rule is annoying

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

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.

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

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
