"Tomboy" as a term for a girl who acts like a stereotypical boy is OlderThanSteam, having been first given that meaning in 1592. Previously, "tomboy" referred to an especially boisterous boy. The trope itself is presumably much older, possibly OlderThanDirt.

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.
