A Tom Boy????

Girls often find joy in saying that they are tom boys. I had a friend who used to always say that she is a complete boy she doesn't like to wear suits she always likes to link more with boys than girls.
Why do you think she must have said that? Just for proving herself superior to the other girls out there and not because she really is like that. Now another question that arises here is that do boys take pride in saying that they are like girls? No not at all instead they say things like crying like girls or if you have no power sit at home wearing bangles like girls. So they are ashamed of being girls.
Many girls who consider themselves modern are found themselves comparing with boys.
What I personally believe is be on the top by being what you are and by comparing themselves with boys we make us ultimately inferior.
Being a girl is not at all a shame.

And now I am not at all saying girls means only salwars and bangles and all that crying. No not at all.

Hey different post.... See Girls can wear jeans, shirts and so on... It's acceptable but how can we wear ladies clothes. It won't be nice right.... We are not ashamed and all by comparing with girls, but it is not that much nice of comparing boys with girls. In some things i am telling not all.... We can do some thing and you can do some thing. There are some unique things in both of us, I mean in boys and girls... It's not possible to do some things that others can do.. It's vice versa too..

some girls shud actually learn 2 respct there own gender rathr than disguisng their activities wth dat of boys...

but some girls do have more boysh tendencies dan girlsh ones n d same s wth guys...jus bcoz our society shuns guys wth feminine traits, guys tend 2 hide dem..

@ selerines:

yes u have put up a gud point that both have some traits tat r unique.
But the other point abt boys being shy and all that wat I put up is wat I agree with. I have heard boys saying many times to the other boys if u can't fight go and sit at home wearing bangles. Now some not all really have that ego problem.
niway the 1st point was gud.

@ pooja:

yes I completely agree abt wat u said on grls having boyish traits. but my post was just to put thru the point that this statement is used mostly by the grls who r not really tom boys. as the real tom boys needn't express.

Me too had a similar friend, but it was a different situation, she had only brothers and that even 3 brothers. so, she grew up with them playing like boys and all. So....
