1Hey Coach,
I am a girl who loves to skateboard. I love to play all kinds of sports with the guys and I ride a motorcycle. I am not into any girly stuff like make-up, hair or dressing up. Am I really a tomboy?

Hey sk8rgirl_punk,
Most dictionaries define a tomboy as a girl who dresses and acts like a boy, especially when playing physical games that boys usually play. So, you do kinda fit that definition, but that's not a bad thing. The word tomboy was invented more than five hundred years ago when girls weren't supposed to be aggressive, outspoken or ride skateboards. But many things in life are different from five hundred years ago. People shower more than once a month, doctors no longer drill holes in patients' skulls if they have a headache and lots of girls play football and all other sports. So, keep riding skateboards, keep riding your motorcycle, keep playing sports with the guys and leave the word, "tomboy" for those nerds who are still living in the 16th century.

    Who is yours? I like GSP, but it sucks that he has to take a break. Still , when he returns I bet he'll take back the Welterweight belt.
