Are you a girly-girl?

Honestly, I have no clue where this thread idea came from, but please amuse me anyway. Make your case why or why not:

I am NOT a girly-girl. Yes, I wear make-up, semi-trendy clothes, I like to shop, go to the beach, and other girl stuff BUT

my job is fixing computers, printers, sound and prejection equipment
I have lots of tools and use them more than my dad uses his
I like real fishing, read I can tie the right knot for a hook, put on the tackle, bait the hook, take the fish off, etc
I wear make-up so I don't look dead, not to look pretty
I never do anything with my hair besides some kind of ponytail, I usually don't even use a brush to put it up
I like "gross" animals like fish, frogs, newts
I prefer fixing or building things over arts and crafts
I work a lot and am not spoiled, or in anyway financially supported by my parents
I'm majoring in Business/Communications, not nursing or education
I operate an outboard motor (the kind you pull-start)
Gladiator and war movies are my favorite movies
I took an e-test that guessed my gender was a guy
I know all sorts of important stuff about contracting and home improvements (thanks dad!)
I'm a daddy's girl
I'm neither surprised nor grossed out to come home and find three gutted deer hanging in our garage
I've eaten a squirrel on a stick
I wear the pants in my relationship, so to speak
I'll dig around in the stinky muck if I think I can catch a nice frog, turtle, or get some cool swamp plants for my tanks
I love camping and backpacking, and not the kind where you get running water and flush toilets
My most expensive purchases include electronics and camping equipment
I like to consider myself a very practical person

I suppose that's enough for now. Your turn....

It's true,
LivLuvAndBootlegMusic wears the pants in this relationship.

I took that same test that she took and it told me I was "definately female."
I don't own any tools.
I want to work with kids...or...be a home dad!

So...yes. I am a girly girl.

I think I'm pretty balanced...not a total girly-girl, but I don't have a lot of "masculine" hobbies or characteristics, I don't think.

I guess the best way to put it is that I swear like a guy, but my lips are covered with pretty lipstick.

I'm a girlie-girl, although I don't wear makeup. I love glittery objects, art deco pins and such, work as a book junkie and artist, and of course the friendly local smilie is my friend.

I like wearing pastels sometimes, don't care a whole lot about sports and I enjoy cooking. I always put on at least a little makeup if I'm going out in public. But I never wear eye shadow or mascara and refuse to wear high heels (last time I wore them was for my job interview more than three years ago). I also would rather undergo root canal than watch Steel Magnolias, Terms of Endearment or just about any movie starring Julia Roberts. So I'm not exactly a girly-girl but I'm hardly a tomboy either.

Not much of a girly-girl, either. I really do not care for wearing makeup, and will wear it only for one of three reasons: 1, if it's part of a Halloween costume; 2, for a really special occasion, like a wedding or prom or whatever; or 3, if I'm in some play or something. And I'll only wear dresses and high heels for very special occasions, otherwise, I'm perfectly happy in sneakers, jeans, and a sweatshirt or something. And I rarely ever do anything with my hair-again, I would only do stuff to my hair for the same three reasons I would ever wear makeup. I also am not one who uses glitter often, nor am I one who paints her toenails or fingernails often. I'm also not much of a cook. And depending on the situation, I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.

However, sports is far from being my thing-I'm much happier writing, drawing, and reading, all three of which are not considered "tough-guy" activities, whereas sports tends to be seen as such for the most part, so... And I hate trying to build or fix things. And while I enjoy the occasional action flick, I do tend to watch some "chick flicks" (although, like Bono's shades, I'm not a Julia Roberts person-the movie "My Best Friend's Wedding" was one of the movies we watched on our way out to New York, and I didn't care much for it at all. And as far as the other movies she mentioned go, I've never even seen "Terms Of Endearment" or "Steel Magnolias", nor do I have this inane desire to see them anytime soon).

So take from that what you will.

I'm sorta in between I guess... I wear a little bit of makeup regularly (read: eyeliner) but I won't do anything to my hair other than wash it and comb it.
However, I'm the only person in my apartment that can actually DO anything. They call me the Dad. If anything needs to be fixed (doors, broken light bulbs, screens that fell out, someone tripped a circuit breaker) or put together (futons) or set up (the whole entertainment system), it's my job.

Plus I'm in college so I can get a job playing in the dirt.
I'm a little girly, but compared to the rest of my friends, not at all.
and I had one of them gender tests tell me I was a guy, too

Flats instead of heels, and matte brown eyeshadow. No garish colors to shock the eye, no glitter. Lots of silver jewelry, very fem.

I'm not very girly at all. I have very long hair, that's my main girly thing and i do have some feminine mannerisms and hobbies. I don't wear make up or skirts/dresses. I wear jeans and men's sneakers everyday.

I'm look like a boy

some girls fall in love with me thinking that I'm a boy, in spite of that I have long hair, I don't know, they think that is a "rocker" style or something



So, I don't believe that I'm very girly

...I forgot to add that I wear skirts on a fairly regular basis.
Well, not right now cause it's too damn cold, but if it warmed up about 30 degrees I would be.
and if I'm dressing up, I wear heels. None of them little wussy short heels, I wear heels.
Yet I still say I'm not a girly girl

I almost always wear makeup just because I hate the way I look w/ out it. I like clothes, jewelry, and makeup, but I'm not a slave to that stuff. I like being comfortable, and I've never worn heels because I'm almost 5'10", and they're just so uncomfortable.

I like watching sports, and don't mind doing chores or whatever that might get me dirty. I can't cook, sew, or do crafts, and I don't like any of that stuff.

I guess the most "girly" side of me, even though I hate these kinds of stereotypes (nothing against this thread of course ) is that I'm very sensitive and emotional.

How I'm girly:
1. I LOVE makeup. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I have ... Waaaay too much of it. I'm an addict.
2. I love ANYTHING that sparkles. Total magpie. I don't care if it's a diamond or just cheap glitter in a can. If it's shiney, me wantee.
3. I think even my runners are heels.
4. I go mushy over kittens and puppies.
5. I hate sports.
6. I hate camping.
7. I love classical music, poetry, literature.
8. Martinis are a girl's best friend.

How I'm not girly at all:
1. I've never lost a fist fight. Ever.
2. Burning stuff is a hobby of mine. Fire is cool. As are things that go BOOM.
3. I swear like a f*cking sailor. If you don't like it ... well you can kiss my ass.
4. I have a little problem with authority figures. If you want me to do something, tell me not to do it.
5. I'm really really direct. If I don't like you or something you say ... well I'll let you know. I'm not really afraid of being disliked.
6. I have a completely perverted sense of humor.
7. I drive like a bat out of hell.
8. I hate asking people for help. I'd really rather roll naked through a hallway of broken glass.
9. Blood and guts don't scare me. Neither do spiders, predatory animals, snakes, mice, insects ... I want to be a paramedic in a year at the MOST.
10. I love getting my hands dirty.
11. I hate romantic comedies. I find very strange things romantic. "You'd take your phone off the hook during sex with me?" AWWWWWW.

That's just a little of it. I guess the gist of it is that I LOOK completely girly but underneath, I'm pretty tough.

Same here. I also forgot that I can't sew or do the crafts stuff, either, nor do I really have a desire to try it (the crafts stuff leans into building things, which, again, I'm not too fond of, and the sewing bit would probably just bore and frustrate me after a while). And another thing that would make me lean toward the feminine side-I have so many stuffed animals it's not even funny. Teddy bears, stuffed dogs and cats, dolls, Beanie Babies, you name it. I also had Barbie dolls as a kid and played with them all the time.

Mice don't bother me. I might be startled if I see one scurry somewhere all of a sudden, but they don't really bother me-I actually find them rather cute. My mom strongly disagrees with me, however-mice freak her out. Now rats, on the other hand, those would definitely bother me...

And insects for the most part do bother me, with the exception of butterflies, ladybugs (so long as they're the red ones. I don't like orange ones anymore, 'cause they flooded our house last summer and became a real nuisance), and caterpillars. And while I certainly would be nervous around a snake if it came anywhere near me (with the exception of garden snakes, 'cause those are harmless), I can see them on T.V. without being afraid of 'em-and my sister would strongly disagree with me here, too.

But blood and guts make me queasy-I really hate hearing stories about people breaking certain bones or having body parts twisted into icky positions or seeing that kind of thing...it's just, ugh. And spiders-oh, lord, don't even get me started on how much I hate those things.

I'm a mix, I guess. I love dresses(more comfortable than pants because of my shape-BIG hips, small waist), won't leave the house w/o make-up, fuss w/hair(not really-fuss once in the morning. then leave it to it's own devices),lots of jewelry,etc. BUT...I tend to have a very masculine side as well-cuss like a sailor, despise "chick flicks", would rather hang out with the guys, etc. 2 of my favorite movies are "Mortal Combat " and "Predator"-give me mindless violence over warm fuzzies any day! I'm one of those types of women who could probably do anything a man could do, but if there's a man around-LET HIM DO IT!! I'm a definite Gemini!!

Yeah, I don't mind insects, I even had a pet Madagascar hissing cockroach once, but SPIDERS *shudder* I've had issues with them since before I could talk.

My grandma used to watch me when I was around 18 months old. One day I was sitting in the high chair for lunch and she noticed I was staring at the ceiling. She couldn't get me to move or make a sound, and she thought I'd gone off the deep-end so she called my grandpa home from work. He tried to get me to look away, but I was frozen. They finally figured out that the huge cracks in their ceiling looked like a giant spider.

I hate spiders so much, and they bring out all of my rage. If I find one that scares me and he doesn run away, I end up pouring bleach or shampoo on it b/c I hate squishing them. Or I just put a cup over it for someone else to kill it. It's only spiders though. Daddy long legs don't bother me one bit, I'm used to catching them for frog food.

I don't kill spiders if everyone else is home. I make it known that there's a spider nearby, and someone else kills it. I only kill them if I'm the only one at home. And even then, I use a shoe or something, and then grab huge wads of Kleenexs or toilet paper or napkins, 'cause there's no way I want to feel the dead spider...eww, 'kay, now I just grossed myself out with that thought.

Oh, god, daddy long legs scare the bejesus out of me. There's just something extremely creepy about an insect with legs that long...

But at least you have an animal you can feed them to. I don't.
