Why is "tomboy is better than girly girl" an Unfortunate Implication? A tomboy is a woman who defies the sexist definition that femininity means being a delicate passive flower that dresses in highly impractical elaborate and cumbersome clothing and never actually does anything except be pretty. A tomboy is nothing more than a girl or woman who actually DOES things and is physical just like boys. In a world without sexism defining "femininity" roles, a tomboy is just plain a normal person who happens to be female. After all, women would do anything they want and that they're physically capable of and dress however practically they want if they weren't being told to be passive and weak and dainty.

The edit made to "Elizabeth I" seems to confuse her with Elizabeth II. I don't know enough about British royalty to correct it, so could someone who does clarify things (i.e. does this trope apply to Elizabeth I, II, or both?)

The trope was just made. Giving it time to get some wicks might be nice before you cutlist it for that.
