Tomboy is kind of a weird term, in my opinion. It’s basically a way for people to make sense of girls who like boy-coded things. It’s a way to point out a girl isn’t following pesky gender norms. And it’s something that girls are almost shamed for being.
But really, tomboys are simply girls with interests that vary from what’s expected. That’s all! Nothing to hate on whatsoever.
Personally, I was never a tomboy. But I definitely was crushing on them! So, needless to say, I have a soft spot in my heart for the more butch ladies of the bunch. The girls who push gender boundaries. The girls who are unapologetically into “guy stuff.” The girls who shop in the guys section for everything…including boxers.
