Is "tomboy" a trait by looks or by her interests?

I am referring more to the ladies who call themselves a tomboy.

  • They go hand in a hand.

    Because if a woman is dressed up feminine all of the time,

    then how can she really be a tom boy?

    Tom boys usually let loose.

    Aren't afraid to dress baggy, not wear make up, tie their hair in a pony tail

    and get dirty.

    A woman who is all done up all of the time, would be less likely to participate in those things.

  • A tomboy is more like your interest not what you look like. You can be beautiful and love sports and loving hanging with the guys making you a tomboy. If you grew up with just brothers then that sometimes makes you a tomboy because you know how to hang with the guys and still be cool

    • Well I don't know about that, I know a few girls who grew up with only brothers and they seem to definitely be more oriented to the "girly girl" type. But it might just be an exception to the rule.

    • yea but those girls have a tomboy side but you just see the girly girl side.

  • id say both as well

    but if I'm talking personally id say its more my interests that are tomboyish… the way I dress isn't girly girl either but its not tomboy, unless I'm just extremely not bothered

  • Both. Mostly personality, if she acts like a guy. But most tomboys don't wear dresses on a regular basis. It's comfort over femininity.

    and her look is dictated by what her interests are

  • Stereotypically it's a bit of both. But I think more looks.

    Genrally tom boys arnt interested in make up, dresses ect.

    But they might still like stereotypically girly activities.

    Good Question!
