Reply To: Did you use the term “tomgirl” to describe yourself?

Jamie Harris


I was born in 1956 and I never heard the word Tom girl. At that time society was putting gays and trans people in jail. The favorite time in my life was when I was 4 and wearing my mothers jewelry and makeup and my 3yr old sister’s princess dresses. She and I would dress up and twirl around the house while I asked my mother if I was pretty. Adult trans people were put in jail which they could not do to kids so I was sent to aversion therapy. The other common choice would have been a mental institution. Tom girl was a common term then, but I never heard of the word Tom girl. Other words that were used to describe us were queer (derogatory then), pervert, demented, abomination, etc.
