Woah, noone answered this . I guess I'll be the first
Well...

ITS TOUGH!

-everytime someone stares at you while shopping at men's section

-people mistake you as a lesbian (if you're straight)

-people call you ''sir''

-parents. ESPECIALLY ASIAN PARENTS (not trying to pick a fight or anything ) since
they're all mostly strict and will yell at you if you dress in men's clothing


-people ''expecting'' you to someday grow out of being a tomboy and join ''their'' society >_>

-SWIMSUITS ughhhh >_<

BTW. This is only based on my experience, so feel free to correct me if you think differently. ^^

Most people equate tomboy to lesbian, which I think is a mistake.

I consider myself a tomboy but never a lesbian. Yes, I do dress and act like a male but doesn't mean I'm attracted to females (the demarcation line between tom boyishness and lesbianism). I still have the soul and heart of a woman and I'm happy about it.

Now. why act and dress like guys? Ever since elementary I have this androgenic side. I feel comfortable wearing boys clothing and I really like guys apparel. And perhaps the biggest contributor to my boyishness is my being the eldest among my siblings. I have to protect them from bullies at school during our primary years. So I have to act manly as offensive mechanism.


Though I'm a little bit pissed off when people look at me from head to toe, I don't really care whatever they think of me (in attire and action). But still I hope people will be more mature in judging a person. However, who is ever qualified to judge another?


I'm glad my parents have confidence in me. They know the real me so they aren't alarmed of my boyish personality. They are just wondering how guys will approach me since I appear not interested in males whenever one is trying to call my attention. Well, that's the challenge. Let's see if a 'real' man is out there. hehehe. (in my dreams?) hahaha

Haha, screw the people looking? maybe thats why i have short hair ;P And, the way i fan girl at music groups like big bang already proves that i like guys (I sound like a perverted girl ;P tsk tsk) I find it funny and i accpet more when they say "sir" instead of "miss" there's more..."地位" my parents just complain that i dress too casual. aka: clothes that randomly go together. Join what society? o.o no one cares if you are a tomboy here ;] infact they accept it like crazy? ahaha, swim suits... thats the only thing i agree. there's always shorts and shirts!! ;D

I don't like it when everyone just stare at me every time I walk into the female toilets.
They give me weird looks.. it's almost like they want to whack me with their handbag.

Hehe I get weird looks in bathrooms. But when I gotta go, I gotta go. :O

Swimsuits aren't a problem........since I'm on the swim team.
Everyone has wider shoulders and smaller hips there. :]

Those are all how it is to me too. For the bathrooms, I pretty much get corage from thinking to myself, "If they ask, just say I know"

When im at school, people may think im a lesbian just because im always around girls and i think its kind of hard to call me a "sir" cuz my chest is too big (wish it was smaller) to look like a guy. But i still get call a boy sometime. My firends would always tell me this " my upper body look like a girl but my lower body look like a guy. I dont have to go to the men's section to look like a tomboy, i can just buy girls clothes and when i wear it, it look like i got it from the men's section. Well that what my friends told me.

Heh, being a tomboy's pretty fun. I mean, sure I get mistaken as a boy (even more so when I had short hair), but that's pretty fun. It's like a O.O from everyone else and it makes me want to burst out laughing. Although, even when I dress up in female clothing I get mistaken as a boy sometimes, but that's not that bad, I guess. I never did really care about gender. Though, causing confusion can be a heck more amusing than going on with a normal life and same everyday style.

My parents hated my short hair style, so now I'm forced to grow my hair long (it's past shoulder length by now) but that won't stop me. I can always tie it up and the clothes will always fit (my bro comes with me to the men section and we help each other out, yo. Pretty fun).

Though, my voice isn't that high pitch, but it's now that low either. As for swimsuits. Heck, just stick to the female clothing. I'm a tomboy, and I wear a swimsuit. So what? It's not going to change me either way. I'm born with this body, so I can do what I want with my appearance.
