a female with male like characteristics.
Tomboys give 0 fucks about whats going on or who talks about them. They'd rather spend the day in the mud wrestling with their friends then to stay inside painting their nails. A tomboy doesn't have to play a sport. Tons of girly girls play sports so it doesn't really matter.
"Wanna go to the nail salon with me and Jessica?"
"Sorry. I already made plans to play football at the park with the guys."

"Wow you're a true tomboy aren't you?"
"I wouldn't say i'm a tomboy, maybe i'm somewhere in between?"

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

A young girl who would rather be playing football in the rain than out shopping and boy hunting. Hangs out with boys. Does not care about what other people think of her, nor does she judge others for the way they are. Very sporty, and does not follow the latest fashion trends. Does not make fun of what most people would call " nerds " or " geeks ", and in fact befriends them most of the time. I am a tomboy, and I love it.
Girl: Whoa, look at that tomboy out in the football field! She's really kicking hide out there!

Valley Girl: Want to go shopping at Claire's?
Tomboy Girl: No, thanks. I'm going to Justin's to play football.

a girl who would pick diggin up worms and climbing tree in her backyard rather than goin shopping at a mall. tomboys tend to hang out and get along with boys rather than fellow girls. tomboys usually get this way from hanging out with brothers/neighborhood boys and their friends or being raised by brothers or males figures of the family. a stereotypical tomboy wears no makeup or jewelry, wears jeans, baseball caps, has scraggly hair, etc. this is not neccesarily true, as many tomboys wear girl stuff. they just dont care what other girls or people think of them. a tomboy who wears girl stuff usual does not cooperate with "normal" girl activities and due stuff that they like to do.

despite hangin out mainly with boys, a large number of boys find tomboys attractive. jealous preppy girls usually get jealous and try to spread rumors that tomboys are lesbians, but in all actuality, its the preppy slut who looses because tomboys dont care SHIT about what other think of them and the guys still like them! ;P

indeed, tomboys are the true individuals of society.
i am a classic example of a tomboy. i had no sister my age, my mom was always working when i was younger and there were no girls my age in my neighborhood, so i grew up hanging out with my older brother, his friends and my dad. i grew up a tomboy. im 17 now, and i wear girly stuff, but i still have my tomboyish traits. i like spendin lots of time outside, i spend half my time on the computer, playing video games, watching tv, im not afraid to pick up bugs or of getting dirty in the mud, and i wear jeans the majority of the time. i dont get along with most girls. all they do is listen to rap music, groggle at boys, spend money on clothes and other stupid stuff. i may be the outcast of my class, but i do stuff my own way and im proud to be different and- proud to be a tomboy. ;

Tomboy refers to a female whose behavior is free from the restriction of unwritten societal gender rules. She doesn't think she is being boyish or girlish, she is being herself. It is hopefully considered an old-fashioned term. I've always been called a tomboy and I hear it when I do something that requires physical strength or when I'm playing and don't mind getting dirty or injured if that goes with the game. I am heterosexual by instinct and choice. Tomboys are usually willing to fight if necessary & tend to be fearless though not stupid in that respect. They are intolerant of bullies and tend to step in to balance uneven situations. Warrior-like in an honorable way.
Joe: "Brigit jumped right in the middle of that fight to help Ben! She's 50 and such a sexy woman, I wasn't expecting that."

Mike: "She's what you older guys call a tomboy. Really, she's being herself and happens to be a person who's willing to fight."

A girl who dresses and sometimes behaves the way boys are expected to, often into more masculine things like "stronger" sports, computers, or cars. Stereotypically wears jeans, baseball caps, and denim vests/jackets. Often brought up with a lot of brothers or a child of a single father.

A girl who acts like a dude, but is still all girl. She doesn`t care about fashion, hair, nails, or any girlie things. Is strong, physically and mentally. Men love hanging out with her because she has no filter, and doesn`t play games. She also doesn`t care what people think of her. But men also find her extremely sexually desirable, and want to be around her all the time.

Girlie girls are either very drawn to her, and love her way, or they feel threatened by the attention she gets from males. If they feel threatened, it`s because they can`t understand how a guy can be attracted to her when she isn`t dolled up. So they often spread rumors that she is a lesbian, in an attempt to keep men away from her. But the tomboy doesn`t care. She sees right through pretentious girls, and doesn`t waste her time on them.

And although tomboys are very boyish, they are very clean and well kept, and usually smell really good.
Pretentious girlie girl slut: "I don`t get why he hangs out with her, she`s just a tomboy. what a slob."
