Stamp: In some ways I fail as a girl. by Catthylove Stamp: In some ways I fail as a girl. by Catthylove
In some ways, I fail at being my own gender (by society's standards).

-I don't like wearing makeup. I wear it only when I go out to a very special occasion. I don't like doing my nail, either. I hate it. And other girls are always convinced I'm a fucking doll to play with.

-I like my hair short. Other girls hate this about me because I look "OHH SO PRETTY!" when it's not their body. :/

-I'm not a very neat person. In fact, I think better in a cluttered space. My mom doesn't get this about me. She wants me to keep my room clean.

-I don't want to be a mother.

And several other things.

- I dislike make-up and dresses; I'd rather wear jeans and a hoodie all day.
- I prefer loud types of music like rock, post-hardcore, and other similar things, over the pop that most other girls I know listen to. (Though I am fine with it, I just prefer rock.)
- I've never really been into boy bands.
- I don't want to have kids / I have NO maternal instincts whatsoever. (I actually highly dislike children.)
- I don't paint my fingernails anymore.
- I'm extremely into horror.
- I lack the kind of posture society expects from "a lady."
- I lack basic manners. (Sorry, but it's true.)
- I'm not into shopping, usually, unless it's for art supplies or video games.
- My hair is short and I like it that way.
- Proud to call myself a tomboy. (Definitely going to use this.)
EnderWoken87 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
I do too. & I have the posture of a teen lady!

-I don't like makeup, especially mascara.
-I like short hair for a good reason or two: to keep out of my food & eyes
-I'm not tidy either. & my mom doesn't get this about me either
-Why the hell would I wanna be a mother? WHY?! It hurts! (I remember a scene from the game show Worst Cooks Ever, a gal described a team's example pizza as a pizza for a pregnant lady! 😓)
-I'm a CreepyPasta fangirl
-I play with stuff that are considered for boys, such as Nerf guns
-I know very little about One Direction :no:
-I don't like dresses. I'll occasionally wear skirts, but I don't like dresses. & for a parade, I had to wear a rainbow dress that went down below my knees! 😑 At least I agree that love wins. :nod:
-I actually burp & fart commonly (irl, don't worry now cuz I'm online)
-Out of my two fave OCs of mine, Mirage (male) & Shadow (female), I personally prefer to RP as Mirage out of character more than anything.
-I don't freak out over small problems
-I don't like shopping for random, girly things.
-I actually like video games with guns such as Pixel Gun
-I don't like games such as the Sims or Farmville.

Does loving all types of gory animes with weird plots and lots of death (cough cough ATTACK ON TITAN AND PARASYTE cough cough) count as not acting like a girl? Yes?

Nailed it.

What an irony that everyone wants my hair shorter cuzn they say it´s "too long".
All girls have short hair in my country, I don´t get why thou...

But I agree with your other points... I fail as a girl too :D

WOO! 😁 I like short hair too!
undead-fox-hu Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Well let's see.

-I absolutely despise pop and girly music.

-Post-hardcore, screamo, heavy metal, punk rock, rap metal.
People are scared of my music.

-No makeup! I makes me feel like a fake, like I'm hiding who
I am.

-I'd prefer rainy over sunny.

-I will not wear a skirt or a dress for the world.

-My favorite characters are always male.

-I prefer to roleplay as a male character.

-I want my hair cut short but my mom just told me I could
before school starts.

-I buy my clothes at either Hot Topic or thrift stores. I also
find a few things on amazon.

-I hate when the girls at my school are talking about boys
and dating.

-I don't even know what tabloid means, but by the other
comments I'm assuming that it's some celebrity thing. In
which case I don't like those.

-I'm never getting married or having kids~

-I don't wear what I do to impress others, I wear what I
do because when I look in the mirror and see what I'm
wearing, I like what I see.

-I don't really like pink.

-I'm not really that social.

-I hate cleaning, I'm not that neat.

-I don't freak out over the smallest things.

-I suck at walking in heels...

FUCK BOYBANDS (No seriously whyyyYYYY)

My hair's medium-ish, but I want it shorter, I can't do jack shit.

Fuck dresses and skirts.  They're uncomfortable.   BURN THEM. BURN THEM ALL.

I don't give two shits about "That guy's hot but gay why", I'd probably think he's not that "hot" anyway xD

Looks at friends that I know IRL- oh wait, I'm looking at nothing!

Rap's the shit, yo.

I LOVE Games.
As in, video games.


I don't want to be a mother; I hate kids.  Yet apparently I must because the genetic line.

I hate shopping IRL, and when I shop? Fandom shit.

Cleaning? *puts everything under the bed*

1. I only want to wear costume-y or gothic makeup, because the regular, plain stuff just isn't me.
2. Dresses work better for formal occasions IMO.
4. Short hair's just more practical, and if I want long hair, why wait forever when I can just buy a wig?
6. If I ever get in a relationship (which is very unlikely), I'd probably be the "seme".
7. Also I usually don't really like rap very much but M.I.A.'s stuff's flippin' awesome.
8. I love shopping...But not for the latest clothes, not at all. For the dolls, tee shirts and fandom stuff.

I'm actually pretty feminine, just not in the way society wants me.

Why I fail as a girl:

- I rarely go shopping/ own one pair of jeans
- I don't a social life or friends
- I rarely paint my nails
- I'm lazy
- Haven't worn a skirt since the 6th grade
- I never had been in a relationship (nor do I plan to)
- I don't wear makeup
- I wear chap-stick instead of lip-gloss or lipstick
- I'm not very neat 
- I have little interest in being a mother because #1, childbirth is painful and would kill me and #2 because I don't want my child to be covered in eczema because of my genes

My conclusions:

~Makeup SUCKS! I hate putting on makeup! It just looks and feels gross on my face!
~I rather my hair short as well since long hair is brallllllll hard to keep.
~Me? Neat? Look at the state my room is in!
~Well I wouldn't mind being a mother but yeah.
~I don't mind dresses but other girls clothes are BLEH to me.
~I DID NOT PLAY WITH DOLLS WHATSOEVER!!!!!! I played with cars instead.
~My style of music is so questionable in this scenario.
~So they say that girls don't rough house BUT I DO! X'D Sometimes.
~I heard the saying "you're not supposed to hit girls" while I got hit a bunch of times.
~I don't quite freak out as much anymore when I get hit in the face by a ball.
~Blood satisfy me! (So does violence lmao)
~I'm such a weirdo and tend to speak to myself a lot!
~I'm actually very interested in sports, mechanics and building with wood.
~Green and blue are my top 2 most fave colours.
~Boy clothing is cool.
~So are suits and bow ties!
~I have high energy and has a short attention span.
~I don't consider myself as a tomboy because I'm actually Genderqueer!
~And I actually want to be male!
~The only reason why I crush males as well is because I'm a Panromantic Polysexual Polymory.

-I fight back when someone tries to put makeup on me
-I like my hair longer, mainly because my hair curls as it gets shorter and I hate it, but I also keep my hair in a ponytail when people say it looks better when i let it down, but I hate it.
-I can't stay neat if my life depended on it, when I'm forced to clean my room I'm like "Holy shit I have a floor!"
-Being a mother is the least of my priorities, I'd rather focus on video game design at the moment.
-I will not wear a dress/skirt unless it is for a special occasion (for example, my school is having a masquerade Valentine's dance next week, and I have to wear a skirt.)
-I can't stand girly things, but when I try to it's very limited. This is especially confusing for me as for about a year, I got along with a girl who's the exact opposite of me. 
le-procrastinatorz Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015  Student General Artist
lemme see....

- The only time I use makeup is using mascara to make people look like they have a black eye. (even ask Luna XD sooo funny)

- I like my hair long because I look like friggin Dora when it's short. But I'm not one of those "1839517694619657461970 brushes a day gets the boys to play!!!!!!1111!!!!1!!" tpye girls. Normally my hair is a total mess and I guess I kinda like it that way. :P

- I AGREE WITH YOOOOOOOOOUUUUU I love my workspace messy and never bother to clean it. But everyone wants me to be tidy but I don't get the point because I'm only gonna mess it up again XP

- I don't want to be a mother either.
NeneSims Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2014
1 - I'm not a fan of a "cute" singer (I dislike 1D, Justin Bieber and and that shit)
2 - I also NEVER wear makeup (I suck at it)
3 - I like horror movies
4 - I'm also not a neat person
5 - I don't think that hot gay boys are a waste (my friends say that and I'm like "WHAT?")
6 - "Sweet things" don't make my style at all...
7 - I like hard rock

So, in some ways I also fail as a girl (by society's standards) and I'm proud of it Wink/Razz

-Eh... makeup's okay.  I mean, I rarely ever wear it, and when I do, all I put on is a little lip gloss and that's basically it.
-I also have short hair.  I have a pixie cut right now. c:
-I'm not neat AT ALL.  A lot of the times it takes me over a week just to clean up my room...
-Pink's not my favorite color, but I don't hate it.  Sometimes I'll occasionally wear pink clothes.
-I don't mind dresses (though I rarely ever wear them), but for some reason I just HATE skirts.  I don't know why, but for some reason I just cannot stand wearing them!
-I don't mind disturbing or violent things.  (I actually like a lot of creepy/violent T.V. shows, movies, animes, video games, etc..)
-I don't want to date anyone.
-I hate painting my nails.
-I don't want to get married and have kids.  (I'm staying single, yeah! :D)
-I don't like/get along well with the rich, snobby girls.  I generally get along better with boyish girls/guys.  (Basically all of my friends that are girls are at least a little boyish)

I fall into some feminine stereotypes, but others not at all. I just am what I am. I usually don't wear makeup just because it's too annoying to put on, I never put on nail polish unless someone puts it on me, I don't like heels, I'm not obsessed with boys and getting my flirt on whenever a new guy shows up (seriously, my roommates though -_-), and I usually don't do my hair, again because I'm too lazy to. I'm not opposed, necessarily, to doing makeup or hair... in fact, I like it when someone does it for me, but I just don't care enough to do it and I feel perfectly comfortable with myself without having to do it. 

However, I do want to be a mom. Like, a lot. Not this instant, but someday. I don't think any amount of successes elsewhere would make up for never having any children. I also want to get married, but NOT just to get married. I want to marry my best friend who respects me as much as I respect him. If people are worried about marrying someone who controls you, then just don't marry a control freak. For real. There are so many people in the world there's gotta be someone who you would love to live with forever.

4. I like messy space too. besides, the universe is heading towards entropy anyway so messy space is natural
5. I hate the idea of being a mom. 
6. I wear jeans. Every day. Even in the summer. And when I sleep. AND I DON'T OWN ANY SHORTS OR SKIRTS YAY

I can also relate to these. 
- I've only ever wore makeup once. I hated it. My younger sisters (Both wear make up) and my mom constantly try to get me to wear it, but I wiggle my way out of it. 
- I used to have long hair when I want younger it was to my knee caps. 9th grade hit, and I cut it shorter. (shoulder length) In 10th grade (now) I have a male-ish hair cut. It's extremely short in the back, however I have long bangs.
- I can't be organized. No matter how many organizational things my mom buys for me, I can't. My writing even looks like a dude. 
- I am good with kids, I babysit a lot. However, I don't have an interest in becoming a mother. I'd rather my husband (If I ever marry) and I to just cuddle or whatever. no children.
- I love video games! I can't go a week with out playing one!
- I don't really wear skirts and dresses. I find them really uncomfortable.  
- I would rather wear baggy-ish cloths then tight ones. 
So many more, but I'd rather not bug you with them
