Im 12 years old and have always been asked if im a boy or a girl. I used to hate being a girl, but now im used to it and dont mind it as much. Ive never met another tomboy thats as much of a tomboy as me and its hell. i hang out with guys all the time, id rather hang out with them and talk about video games than hang out with a girl and awkwardly try to start up a conversation while shes talking about one direction which i hate, but im starting to get a bit pissed off about all the guy jokes ive been told lately. theres nothing wrong with being a tomboy, but im startin to really hate all the jokes i get everyday about being a tomboy. I really liked reading this because i know now that im not the only one whos always mistaken for a guy
I’m a Tomboy and proud of it! All my sisters are not girly-girl but they are not tomboys either, I like playing sports a ton. and Unlike my sisters I always wear hockey skates like my brother.
I like playing with boys because I like the same things they do, but I don’t always feel like I fit in, I often can kinda “get in” because my brothers is only a year older so I play with him and together we make friends-boys. I hate waring dresses and skirts and only wear them to Church to please my mom. Though my mom doesn’t really see me as a “tomboy” she is always trying to make me do stuff with my hair and buy what I call girly cloths. I wear my hair shorter then my sisters because it’s thin and my mom thinks it’s cute, I hate “cute” I only ware it short because I like it cause its out of the way and is more boyish. I’d rather be a boy, I help out as much as my brother-maybe even more on our farm. All of us girls help our dad insulate barns build sheds, roof houses etc.. I love doing that kind of thing and I love it when people mistaken me as a boy, the truth is I think of myse as a boy.
Alot of people think I’m like this cause I’m homeschooled and don’t relate it with tomboy. I hate watching girly girls giggle and prance about it’s sickening! I wear all my brothers hand me downs and where polo t-shirts when I can. in the summer I even convinced my mom to let me where a boys shirt to church. I like them waay better!
I love Basketball and skateboarding and animals. Cooking is ok too (i don’t see it as a girly thing because my dad is the one who taught me most of my cooking skills-which is alot)
So even now at 14 I’d still rather be a boy, I never wear make-up don’t even own it. the girly-ish thing I have is probably my cat! because she acts like a princess-I love her emensly! the only thing is because I am a tomboy (don’t get me wrong, its a ton better then being a girl-girly) I can’t fit in, and now that I’m older even boys don’t except me anymore as a friend!

When I was a young kid, I was never allowed to cut my hair, and I was forced into scratchy, frilly dresses on even semi formal occasions. Ugh. I loved boy’s clothes, skateboarding, getting muddy and hot wheels. I drew only boys and always wanted to be the boy character. I never played house. I wrestled boys and traded Pokemon cards.
These things are usually “grown out of” and a “phase”. Wrong! The hardest part of my life is that I am still a tomboy at 18! Perhaps I would have grown out of it by now if my family hadn’t given me such a hard time and restricted my clothing. Probably not though. I’m pretty sure this is me.
I’m still living my tomboy story. I’m a lanky, skinny 18 year old with short brown hair and a cute but androgynous face. I have not grown much since age 12 besides upwards, so I don’t need to accommodate curves or a feminine body and often wear sneakers, boy’s socks, jeans or shorts and skater/graphic shirts. My mom worries people will think I’m gay, and some people have. If they don’t know I’m a girl though, from my voice and appearance they assume I’m a boy around 15. Do I care? Nope!
When I’m not at school, I play video games, rollarblade, ride bikes, skateboard, play basketball, read books/comics and make cosplays. I eat whenever I want and keep up a fast metabolism; I don’t care about dieting. I have three best friends and two are guys. We have sleepovers and make crazy looking pizzas and watch movies and eat candy! And I’m not gay! I just don’t want to date. I like to have fun and I’m more boy than girl, which is what being a tomboy is about. I’m probably the biggest tomboy you’ll ever know at my age!
I was 11 years old, and I came home with the bus and it was really cold and snowy outside. So I would go inside and put on a thick, flannel lumberjack shirt, and tuck it into my jeans. Then I would take this fake cigarette that I had made from rolled up paper, and I would go in the garage and use all of the tools and just paint wood- just random pieces of wood that I would chop up and file and play with the tools and I would pretend that I was smoking and listen to the radio.

As a child, I was such a tomboy that my daddy would tell me I could turn myself into a boy, but the only way to do that was to kiss your elbow. So i could spend hours not bothering him with anything- trying to kiss my elbow. Then, you know, he didn’t have to listen to me “I want to build a fort in the back yard” or any of the other things I was thinking about as a tomboy because I was too busy trying to kiss my elbow.
