While Tomboys are subject to {{Flanderization}}, according to which they all hate "girly things" (like [[PinkGirlBlueBoy the color pink]], dressing up, playing house, shopping), many in [[RealLife real life]] simply happen to fall outside of gender norms in a few respects; aside from these "quirks", [[{{Shorttank}} a Tomboy]] might also have "feminine" interests. Even if she doesn't, she need not have any antipathy toward those who do. Indeed [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl her best friend may be]] a GirlyGirl.

In story, justifications also vary. Some girls might just enjoy doing boyish things more. Perhaps she's [[DaddysGirl daddy's little girl]] and so wants to do things with him. A similar possibility is that she was RaisedByDudes. Maybe she has no brothers and so the father raises his daughter the way he would a son. It could be that she has no sisters but several brothers, and to be included with them she engages in boyish activities. Or maybe she is socially awkward and simply wants to go somewhere where she thinks the awkwardness will be accepted because she is a "foreign visitor" anyway. Tomboys can also be divided into two separate types, such as lesbian, and straight Tomboys.

* '''UnwillinglyGirlyTomboy:''' A tomboy who reluctantly wears girly clothes or is involved in feminine activities.



* '''[[ChildhoodFriendRomance Unlucky Childhood Friend]]''': Sadly one of the negative aspects that seems to follow tomboys in many forms of media. Usually they will either feel IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy or believe they need a GirlinessUpgrade to get the guy's attention.
