Tips for being a tomboy

Although there was a day when tomboys were frowned upon by society, the trend is growing rampantly as more and more ladies continue to sport their camouflage getup and hop on the bandwagon of macho-ness (Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, we salute you!). In the Roaring Twenties, men acted like suffragettes were beings from other planets on a massive campaign to dismantle their masculinity. Now, tomboys can finally be "just one of the guys" without criticism, allowing them to freely guzzle beer straight from the pitcher or hawk a loogie from their balcony to see where it lands.

It's likely there are scores of ladies who have been longing to ditch their super-feminine ways and embrace a manlier lifestyle, yet many simply aren't aware of the work that being a tomboy takes. Here are a few pointers to get you started.

1. Be physically engaged. You don't have to pump iron and inject massive quantities of steroids to become a successful tomboy. All it takes is one physically active hobby, like Frisbee or maybe even a little skateboarding to show you can hang with the boys. If you're not into sports, become an adamant video-gamer.

2. Accept unpleasant habits. If you want to be one of the guys, adapt to an atmosphere of belching competitions and familiarize yourself with the putrid whiff of intentional farts. It's even acceptable for you to let loose a burp or two every now and then - just make sure it carries a little oomph.

3. Never be afraid to get down and dirty. If you end up deciding to roll down a sizable hill or tackle the feeble nerdy guy to the ground, don't feel obligated to change your clothes. You'll be respected for being carefree when it comes to grass-stained jeans and mud-speckled shirts.

By earning the respect of your egotistical male peers and adapting to their lifestyle, you can gain a sense of liberation that might seem foreign to girly girls. Put those high heels on the shelf for a bit and earn your place in the realm of equality by cherishing the tomboy lifestyle.
