Title: You.Are.A.Girl.
Post by: Kairi on May 11, 2015, 12:33:04 PM
This quote is from writer Sharon Suchoval.

"According to Wikipedia: A tomboy is a girl who exhibits characteristics or behaviors considered typical of a boy, including wearing masculine clothing and engaging in games and activities that are physical in nature and are considered in many cultures to be "unfeminine" or the domain of boys.

Just because there is a wikipedia entry, doesn't mean we have to subscribe to it.

Some girls climb trees.
Some girls wear dresses.
Some girls climb trees while wearing dresses.
Don't define people by how they play and don't call girls boys (or boys, girls.)
If you want to paint your nails and then jump in the mud, go for it.
If you want to pull your hair in a ponytail and eat a cheeseburger, do it.
If you want to collect bugs, talk to them, name them, and set them free, be my guest.
Do all of these things and know that you are a girl. Don't do any of them and know that you are a girl.

Be yourself.

Wear lipstick, play soccer, have friends that are girls, have friends that are boys, eat bacon...or salad, watch romantic comedies or action movies, wear pink or wear blue.
None of it matters.
You. Are. A. Girl.
NOT...a tomboy.
A girl."
