Top 10 Worst Tomboy Stereotypes

Here are a list of the DUMBEST tomboy stereotypes EVER!
The Top Ten
1 We hate girly girls

I think this is by far the WORST tomboy stereotype EVER! Just because we don't like girly THINGS, It doesn't mean we don't like girlyGIRLS. I have 2 best friends, and they are BOTH girlygirls! And I'm a tomboy!

WRONG! I'm a tomboy, my 9 year old cousin is a girly girl, and I love her for it.

Not true. I like girly girls.

I love girly girls

2 We are obsessed with sports

While I personally love playing Dodgeball and Football, there are lots of tomboys out there who couldn't care less about sports. So I guess this is a dumb stereotype.

I suck at sports

I like sports, but I’m not obsessed with them

sports sucks in my opinion

3 We want to be a boy

I hate this stereotype! Just because we act like boys, it doesn't mean we all are immediately transgender! Get your facts straight, stereotypers!

No. That would be weird. I’m comfortable with the gender I was born with and I wouldn’t change it

If one Wants to be a Boy, Then They Are a Boy. it’s called “Transgenderism”, People.

4 We are lesbians

I am a major tomboy. Even when I was younger I have never liked the color pink and other girly things and loved playing sports, play fight with my brothers, and wear baseball caps and sneakers. I even wore a tuxedo to my Junior prom but people thought I was a lesbian just because I am a butch-ish girl. I am 100% heterosexual and only felt sexually and romantically attracted to men and men only. I have a friend who is a lesbian and she is pretty feminine and likes dating very masculine/mannish girls. I currently have a boyfriend and he is attracted to tomboys and women who wear suits so I was definitely the perfect fit for him. Your sexuality should not define how you express your masculinity or femininity and I wish people got that instead of being sexist and stereotypical.

Ok, I'm a lesbian tomboy. True. But it doesn't mean every single one of us is!

I have a girl in my school named sam she bullied me because I was a girly girl shes a big tomboy and walk like a cartoony person,have short hair,hates pink and purple,obessed with sports and mud she loves swearing musics she is a lesbian she treats her girl poorly,

Sort of accurate but only for me because I’m a bi tomboy

5 We try to act "cool" and "hip"

This is one of the worst of the lot. I'm a tomboy, and I hate it when people try to act "dank"! And the DABBING! I think that dabbing is the WORST thing you could possibly do when trying to be "hip", especially with grown ups! Coolness is truly in the eye of the beholder.

it's the butch version of hot

what does act hip means

6 We hate makeup

Ok, so I don't really like the idea of putting chemicals on my face just to get a date, and so do a lot of tomboys. But there are thousands of tomboys who don't mind makeup, some even WEAR it!

I like practicing makeup with my mom.

-Anonymous Tomboy

I love makeup

makeup are the best I wear them a lot

7 We're mean

I HATE TOMBOYS SO MUCH (no offense ) because they are overused in movies/cartoon t be a hero and girly girls the bully/villain girly girls are overhated

That's not true. Just because we're tomboys, It doesn't mean we're bullies.

I’m very nice to others

sorry I said I HAVE A BIG BULLY that's HATES ME and the girly cheerleader popular girl is me not her

8 We hate shopping

Well I love shopping for Funko Pops and video games. But not really clothes, unless I’m shopping for some video game or T.V. show shirt.

I like shopping for some things, but not others

It depends on what we are buying.

its boring but I like shopping for warrior cat books or video games

9 We're just going through a phase

UGH. The dreaded "It's just a phase". Apparently, when we hit puberty we all forget what the word "boy" means and start wearing dresses and high heels, AKA grow out of our "phase".

I’m not sure if I’m going through a phase or not.

FUTURE COMMENT: Turns out it WAS just a phase, sorry.

ill alway wear jeans to a press confrence

10 We hate the color pink

I'm a tomboy, but I love every color including pink!

I do. But yeah, It's a dumb stereotype

I'm a tomboy and I like this colour.

Pink is okay sometimes

The Contenders
11 We can't be "sexy"

Apparently just because we don't wear dresses and high heels, that means we can't be "Smexy". NOT TRUE. I had a crush who was the smexiest girl I've ever seen, and I think she was a tomboy.

Women in blazers and suits are much hotter than the typical dress and heels.

12 They like eating dirt

Is.. is this SERIOUSLY a stereotype. WOW.

Definitely not true

13 They must have short hair

I am a tomboy and I have long hair. My mom thinks that tomboys must have short hair though

I have short hair, but I have who is also a tomboy and she has longer hair

I have short hair but it doesn’t mean every tomboy wants short hair. I want a boys cut but some prefer to have long hair.

I'm a tomboy and I have long hair.

14 They think they are "not like other girls"

"I'm not like other girls dude" I HATE THOSE tomboys who think there not like other girls there are a tons of tomboys

these tomboys who don't think their like other girls are wrong there's a lot of tomboys your not the only tomboy here


15 We all like a certain fandom

Wattpad @melodramas_

I'm an in-between tomboy and girly-girl, and this stereotype needs to stop.

Not every tomboy likes Pokemon, Transformers, TMNT, FNAF, etc. I like Transformers, but not every tomboy does.

I get EXTREMELY annoyed when I see a question on a tomboy or girly-girl quiz, and if there's a question like "Do you like Pokemon" and you answer with no, you'll get the answer girly-girl.

Please make this one stop.

I'm in the mlp, undertale, pokemon, warrior cats and wings of fire fandom

I like K-Pop a lot

I know, right?

16 We don't cry

I mean, that stereotype is considered pretty stupid, since tomboys are basically like any human being in sense of acting from expressions.
Gender expression doesn't matter, we all cried at least once.

I'm a tomboy and I cry sometimes

17 We don't have feelings

Everybody seems to think we're rude bullies just because of what we like. There are tomboys out there who try to be "Lit" and act like this. And because of that, everybody seems to have got it into their heads that we're ALL like this. THANKS, "Lit" tomboys.

18 They like to call people dude or bro

their trying to act cool

19 They are gangsters

Not all tomboys are gangsters, I am one and I don’t like gangsters

20 We like being ugly
21 We beat people up
22 We are emo
23 We listen to odd music

You mean music that NEVER appears on the radio?

I like Sean Paul! Alternative is garbage!

24 They sound annoying
25 They are so mean
