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

    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?

      I had those thoughts when I was young. I had a friend named Tom and he had a sister named Tana. So naturally I thought a tomboy was a girl who plays like a boy and a tanagirl was a boy who plays like a girl. Thanks for the memory, I had completely forgot about that. **HUGS**
