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.
