What's wrong with a tomboy?
Not a stunner!
We're not so bad!
I am writing this to get across a big deal for me. I grew up been a tomboy for most of my life, and am going to use most of these experiences for my blog.
A definition of a tomboy is a person who is a girl but acts and dresses like a boy. The main reason for this is because we want to be like boys, this may seem pretty obvious but just incase some people are baffled why we become tomboys, there's your reason.
Although most of us grow out of it sooner or later, we are still left with this roughness of a boy which you can see. For example I have pretty much grown out of it now but I still refuse to wear a skirt, frankly because you can't get use to the fact you're in one neither can anyone else. I discovered today that I have been wearing makeup for just one year and eight days now, which compared to a lot of girls isn't very long.
However when we are tomboys why do people react to it, is it because we're different just like for example, homsexuals, are they scared or maybe even threatened by us. Every time I see a tomboy I smile, because a lot of tomboys I have seen gorw up are pretty damn hot! Not saying I am though. My whole time being a tomboy I would get this weird reaction from other kids whilst interigating me up and down with their eyes. Some of the kids would ignore me or avoid me, however, I had a few of good friends that I still am friends with now.
Weird reactions I found were more with the girls, who would start to ignore me and sometimes talk about me behind my back. Whereas boys would come up to me a lot more and talk to me about sports and lesson, however they would still go out with the pretty girly, girls which they had nothing in common with. I think a lot of other current or past tomboys would find that to be a similar experience.
It all changed for me though when I got to year nine in secondary school. I started to wear makeup and wear girls clothing, girls who I didn't normally talk to started chatting to me more often and they all found me very funny. I'm like the class clown now, the one who makes everyone laugh and cheers up somebody on a bad day. I now talk to girls more than I do boys, I don't know why they don't talk to me very much anymore. Maybe it's because of my new image or something but I just don't have that natural flow of speech like I used to with them anymore.
I know hat this is about my experience as a tomboy, but a lot of current and past tomboys will probably have it similar to me and I hope that this story will help the popular girls get to know a shy, quiet, 'loser' tomboy and get to know them because I'm sure she'll like her.
