Emily

Yo! My name’s Emily and I’m a 13 year old tomboy. I love skateboarding, surfing, science and maths and I would like to be an astronaut or a pilot when I grow up. I have just found this blog and I think it’s awesome! I have been to loads of different schools and my tomboyishness has been looked at in lots of different ways. My worst experience was probably at private school. I was rejected by everyone, more or less. The girls didn’t want to hang out with me because I was a tomboy and the boys didn’t want to hang out with me because I was a girl. I did have a few friends, and some of the older boys would hang out with me from time to time, but it was mostly a very lonely experience. I was the youngest pupil in the whole school at the time (11, rather than 12-13) and was viewed as a dork. I tried too hard to fit in with the annoying girly girls and found myself way out of my league. Eventually however, I was pleased not to be one of them and was happy to be a reject/rebel.
Now I think that being a tomboy ROCKS! I have 3 younger brothers and we spend a lot of time running around outside, playing sport and gaming. Ok, we’re hardly gamers. We play minecraft and have a friend next door to us with a ps4, so we enjoy it when we do it! I have a pixie cut and shop from the boys section. I HATE ridiculous girls’ clothes, pink and sparkly with annoying slogans, puppies, kittens and *shudders* hashtags. I don’t think I’m gay but I never really think much about love of any kind. It just doesn’t bother me. Most of the girls I know are self-obsessed wimps. I find it quite difficult to get along with girly girls, but I don’t like to judge people. I like to be friends with the unpopular kids/ rejects! I’ve always been seen as quite a geek as well, which doesn’t help. Still, I haven’t been seriously bullied for a while now and if anything it has actually made me stronger, it doesn’t bother me anymore. I am also lucky to have a very supportive mother (my parents are split up and I live with my mum. I’m not too sure what my dad thinks of me). I am shocked by some of the stories on here involving parents forcing their daughters to wear dresses and makeup and act lady-like. (I like being asked to act ladylike- so I can do the complete opposite to shock people!) I realise now how lucky I am not to have to go through that. I want to say, to anyone who has to deal with that kind of thing, just remember that there is NOTHING wrong with you. It is not your fault. Just be who you are, because you are you and that’s your choice. Whether you’re black, white, gay, straight, boy, girl, tomboy or girly girl, you have a right to be yourself, and anyone who tries to bully you is probably just jealous. I hope I don’t sound cliché…
Okay, sorry for the length! I had a lot to say! Stay amazing, peace!

  1. I’m with you bro, some girls can be self centered, cruel, and very high maintenance. Other girls are just like us. Tomboyishness is kinda like autism, only the challenges play on personality instead of development delays. For instance, there’s this girl at my school name Searra and she likes soccer, minecraft, making me laugh until I pee my panties. She’s even friends with tavion, Lanar, David, Maria, and stephanie. At first she teased me because I was probably more tomboyish than her, but then she started to be nice to me after I told her what she said about me was not true and that she was being mean.
