Black mainly... though I do like pink. Not really into 60s stuff though sorry...

Well I'm fairly intelligent and also nice and fluffy like girls at the same time hehe. Gender stereotypes are boring yes. Thats why I like to blur the line a bit.

I think I'm in love...lol

but not for guys to be feminine without being called gay :confused:
Tomboys are never called gay yet us guys have to stick with our stereotyped gender.
Tomboys, if they're the obvious type, are called gay (or, more specifically, they're called "butch dykes")...how has this managed to escape your notice?!
:confused:

I lovvvve guys who are feminine,like the ones who wear eyeliner and wear pink Converse,and sometimes wear pink! Lipstick on a guy is sometimes hot too. Anyway...replying to the topic at hand,I think it's more okay in society for a girl to be a tomboy, than a guy to be feminine because guys are supposed to uphold this "masculine" outlook and show that they are strong,and I guess people find that wrong(mainly other guys),and not the proper look of a man;when they are all made up and in American terms,"Emo."

I think it is ok for girls to be tomboys. I think people pay too much attention to what others think of them.
And I think it is ok for guys not to follow the 'manly' image. Some guys that are 'manly' are thick as. I read an article in the paper that said it is cool to be 'square' and that not all girls are interested in 'manly' guys, rather sweet nice ones.

I dont know maybe because being a tom boy is something girls grow out of. And tom boys tend to be pretty cool and able to get on with the guys as friends. But not so manly guys well they just mince around with girls i guess.

guys can be feminine but it depends on which feminine characteristics he takes on. the ability to dress well, a sincere interest in their hygeine and appearance, a degree of sensitivity and romanticism, an understanding of design/art/literature, the ability to cook etc are all very appealing to a girl. what a girl ultimately wants is a guy who is satisfied and confident with himself and if he's trying to be more macho than he is that's a turn off.
