Tomboys: y/n?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Just wondering what people think, do they look immature/a phase that will be grown out of/angry? Was in a debate about this with my friend, will be interested to see what other people think!

    People can dress how they want to dress, that's the wonders of a free society.

    How does a tomboy look immature or angry? Is a happy woman dressy woman? Also barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen?

    You want to see angry and awkward, put me in a dress, skirt or anything of the such (haven't owned one in probably 15 years).

    Each to their own innit? The way other people dress is the least of my (and I suspect most peoples) worries.

    I think the tomboy look is hot (over 16-years-old, natch). You see a fair amount of it in Brighton among lesbian couples. I generally tend to fancy the tomboy of the couple, which leaves me feeling pleasantly confused.

    Perhaps it just means you're a submissive lesbian trapped in a man's body...;)

    I feel more comfortable in trousers than I ever have in a skirt or dress.

    My life, my choice of clothing. :)

    Haha, you could be right. :D

    Can I just say that lesbianism is more complicated than a butch tomboy pairing off with a sissy girl. I know you guys are joking, but it's important to say.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    The girls in the couples I'm talking about aren't butch, they're just boy-ish. And I'm not joking about fancying them! :D

    I know you're not joking about fancying them. But I am being serious about the complex nature of lesbian relationships.

    I'm sure those who hitherto thought lesbian relationships were two dimensional stereotypes will be thankful for being alleviated of that prejudice.

    Really! All the ones in the movies just want to get naked and have sex - are you suggesting that real life may be more complex?

    Gosh, well thanks Captain Obvious

    Dammit, another bubble burst by TheSite :(

    I'm really in to tomboys - my OH is one and she's the first 'tomboy' I've ever been with and I think that's what was lacking in all my previous relationships. She can be feminine when required but is what I call an 'honorary bloke' - one of the many reasons why she's definitely 'the one'.

    I wouldn't consider the butch half of a lesbian relationship to be a 'tomboy' though - I would probably use 'boyish'.

    What's really painful, is that saying "honourary bloke" really is meant to be a compliment.

    It is - and it's not painful at all. It's not an expression I would ever use for anyone else. She and I have our own 'language' that we would only use on each other because it's us.

    It really is though, because what it means is that being a bloke is being better than being a woman.

    OK I'm sorry you've taken it that way but that's not the manner in which it is intended. She often displays some traditional 'bloke' tendencies. So much so that I use that expression to jokingly suggest that sometimes the only thing stopping her being a bloke at times is the physiological side of it. Some people are awarded the title of 'Honorary Knighthood' because for whatever reason they don't qualify for a full Knighthood.

    In no way am I suggesting that being male is somehow 'superior'.

    It still kind of suggests that there are things that are only for blokes.

    Again, that's your perception but is in no way what I'm suggesting.
