A childhood memory floated back to me a few days ago, since joining here.
I asked my mum and dad if there was such a thing as a “tomgirl” because I thought I was one. Blank stares then “A tomgirl is just another word for a tomboy”. I had to explain “A tomboy is a girl who plays with boys and likes boys’ things. So wouldn’t a tomgirl be a boy who plays with girls and likes girls’ things?” Don’t think I got much of a reply except for stunned silence.
I think now of a small change in words from “tomgirl” to “transgirl” but a huge journey in time and understanding.
Anyway, did anyone have a similar experience?
