Heroic Overview
Just because I look like a man doesn't mean I have to smell like one.
~ Mulan.


Tomboys are female individuals that include the role of a male. Not to be confused with lesbians, who shows attraction to the same gender. They may be often told by others to act more feminine which they often disagree with. They may see femininity as a sign of weakness, grew up with mostly male family members, lack of a motherly figure or simply they just prefer the roles that are often associated with males. However, Tomboys do not have to be entirely masculine; they can possess some girly traits that they may or may not be ashamed to have, in which case they are known as "Tomboys with a Girly Streak" (the same can be said for Girly heroines, who do not have to be entirely feminine and can possess some tomboyish traits, in which case they are known as "Girly Girls with a Tomboy Streak").
