Why do people think it’s weird for boys to be girlish but it’s okay for girls to be boyish?

    I'm not sure really. I think most people see girls that are tomboys, feel that they will outgrow it and it is just a passing phase but with guys they feel he might turn gay or be effeminate if he acts too girlish and stay that way always. It's an old stereotype and I think it is hogwash but a lot of people are still oldschool and stick with the old ways from the fifties.

    It's not weird. People just think that because that's what the Queen wants them to believe.
