I need to rage, if anyone actually takes the time to read this whole thing, AMEN to you. (No religion reference, don’t get me started)

I’m tired of being a girl. I’m going into seventh grade and all the boys tease me for being ugly and… for being me. I’ve always loved sports and video games, and I can’t stand dresses, skirts, makeup etc and other girly girly stuff. Almost no girl wants to be friends with me. Every one is soo immature and I can’t hang out with another boy without hearing the classic. ‘Sittin in a tree, K I S S I N G’ song. I was at a camp the other day and asked the boys if I could play soccer with them… they gave me a look like I was crazy. But that last part does make a bit of sense. Every FREAKIN other girl there is like “OMG I got big breasts and I’m pretty and wear makeup marry me” and scream their heads off whenever they so much as see a bug. And yet they wear lipstick, which mostly contains of crushed bugs. ‘ Cause it’s everything for fashion! And now days I’m feeling discouraged just to do anything because all the boys are huge and naturally stronger than me. I don’t have much upper body strength, and I can’t pull my 12 year old 70 pound self up for a single push up. But I can do more curlups and run faster than any damn boy at my school (although I have no endurance) and I’m the star of my soccer team. But nooo, I’m a girl so I have to be treated like a little pussy for being one. And the thing is, I’m not happy with being a girl. I’d much rather be a male. You guys don’t have to worry about any breasts bouncing around, and you can actually take your shirt off without being embarrassed. If by some unlucky chance you get r*ped then you won’t have ANY chance of getting pregnant. And if that wasn’t enough, a study showed that the average female gets paid 72 cents for every man’s American dollar. You men just look at us as housewives and cooks, and I’ve given up my dream of being a food critic because of the way I’ve been looked at. Just writing this makes me cry for the first times in years. It’s so unfair, I’m tired of being called ugly and don’t you DARE in the comments be like “No ur just the average pretty girl!” Cause I’m NOT. I used to look and the mirror and think. “Is this really me? I don’t look normal”

Shawn

Hey. I go by the name Shawn. I wanna dress fully like a tomboy but my parents dislikes it. So, I dress in more and more guys clothes gradually. (obviously i’m getting it myself. They wouldn’t agree to get it) I’ve been thinking of coming out but i’m kinda afraid of their rejection/reactoon. In my previous school (girl school), there were many tbs, it was fun around them as they understand and respect you for who you are. Sometimes it seems like friends accept you more than yr own parents. Nevertheless, i still love them and hope that they will accept me for who i am when i come out to them (soon hopefully)

Jess

Hey, im Jess. I guess that you could call me a tomboy. but the thing is, I have a sister that’s popular and pretty. my mom wants me to be like her when I go to a new school next year, and that’s kind of hard. I hear boys talk behind my back about me because I act like a boy. I just wear a tee, shorts or jeans, and any shoes that I can just slip on and go. I play gta, minecraft, super meat boy, Mario and much more. im also kinda strong. im always judged for who I am, and what I wear. the only people who respect me for who I am is my boyfriend, best friend and dad. im sick of being picked on for who I am. when I was younger I was more girly, and I picked on boys a lot. that’s because I didn’t know what they were into, so I rough housed with them, and found out they hated me. so I spent a ton of time alone, had some depression but soon found out who I was. ive gone through family losses this year, so I am spending a lot of time trying to figure out is this really me? do I want to always put up with this and if I change, will it stop?
I just want to be respected for who I am, and forget about the past.

June

I am a tomboy. All my friends are boys I dress like a boy and I am bisexual June is my nickname. Sometimes I just get so tired of labels. My mom buys me feminine clothes when I really just want to wear t-shirts and jeans.I sneak out and tag the old brick walls around my block with quotes of peace and inspiration to express myself. Sometimes I am just tired of the labels.

Stray

Hey guys my names not actually Stray just a nickname people gave me cuz I’m always alone but whatever. My real names girly with no nicknames that aren’t incredibly stupid. Since I was in third grade I always dressed and acted like a boy. I still do but now hang out with girls just so my parents dont see my real friends. I’m the kind of person that plays tackle football with the boys at lunch. My mom hates how I am but my dad loves it. The time I came home from school covered in mud bcuz someone dared me to jump into a mud pit made my mom flip. She said why can’t you be a girl for once and I told her that I don’t care what she thinks she said that I was making her look bad so I ran to my dad’s house two miles away because I couldn’t stand her anymore. She accuses me of being lesbian I’m straight but I have nothing against gays or lesbians. People should be able to do what they want. I’ve broken a lot of bones skateboarding or zip lining off the roof of my garage, no one gets how I am but I really don’t care anymore. I hate to admit it but I cut, try to hide it by acting happy all the time, it’s just not me. Hope you guys get it and peace out!

Amy

I am a tomboy but no one but my mum,dad and brother know I am. I want everyone to know but I’m scared what they will think. Also I want to were trousers at school but I’m scared what people will think because I normally wear a skirt and I want my friends to like me. My grandma thinks I’m all girly   and don’t have the courage to tell her I’m not.hopefully you can give me some advice and thanks for listening 🙂

Lauren

Ever since I started middle school I realized that I was bisexual. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved watching violent cartoons, wearing baggy t shirts, playing video games, and wrestling. But I currently haven’t told anyone yet. I only have a couple good friends At school, (boys). I tried fitting in with the girls by dressing up, being polite, and watching their stupid tv shows, but I wasn’t be true to myself. Even after all of that, they never invited me to their birthdays, asked if I could be their partner, or if I could sit with them. I’m still sad about this, because I’m not like the other girls, I like explosions, having messy hair, drawing comics, reading comics, love Cartoon Network. I bet if they had to put one person down as a good friend, they would never pick me. One time I fell, I was covered in blood crying on the bench hoping somebody would help me. 15 minutes passed and the only reason they noticed me was because the bell rang.

Casey

Hey everyone! I’m Casey and I’m a 7th grade girl. I haven’t worn a dress/skirt in almost 4 years, except when I was forced to for 5th grade graduation. You will always see me wearing blue jeans and converse. When my mom takes me shopping she shows me fancy flats or something but I always direct her to the sneakers. She asks why and I say they just aren’t me. I prefer to go fishing or climb trees than go the the mall any day. My hair is either always down or in a braid. The only make up I wear is mascara, lip gloss, and sometimes a natural color eye shadow.
Don’t change who you are!
Be who ya wanna be!

Maud

Hi. I’m Matilda, Maud for short. I guess I’m a tomboy. I adore sports and practice them regulary. I dress mainly in jeans, t-shirts and jumpers (no pink or purple) and get on better with guys more than girls. I haven’t worn a dress for six or seven years. All the children in my family are male, so I’ve grown up around boys. People are continually saying I’m too boyish and not ladylike enough, but I don’t care. I’m fine as I am.

PJ

Sup, i’m PJ. I’m 15 and i’ve been a tomboy since forever. I was born in a small and poor country in Europe so all my clothes came from my guy cousins and I actually grew fond of it. I despise dresses and skirts. Honestly, I can’t ride my skateboard with that crap on and how would I survive a zombie apocalypse in those hell heels. I love my video games, and sports. But I’ve always been out casted. for some reason people love making assumptions. The thing is, I’m heterosexual, I’m catholic (but i have nothing against homosexuals, bi, transgender or asexuals) and I’m not dumb either. I actually have the 2nd highest gpa in my sophomore class with a 4.03 yet I’m seen for the outside. I still wear eye makeup like eyeliner but that’s not good enough to stop the names or my parents annoyance of my anti-femininity. and somehow my music taste gets wrapped up in it too. I love classic rock and modern rock. I constantly listen to Nirvana, Queen, My Chemical Romance, Paramore, BVB, FOB, P!ATD, etc. I don’t understand what any of this has to do with what type of a person I am and why people judge me and want me to change. I feel you all, but we can grow stronger
Here’s to the tomboys!
