A lot of girls get stereo typed. Just because you don't wear dresses doesn't mean that your a tomboy, you just have your own personal style... and that is awesome. I get really frustrated that society puts us in these boxes. Its not just girls it's boys too. Boy's can get put in too the box of "your not suppose to be scared of anything and anyone". Life is scary... and even the toughest person gets scared. Have you ever been stereo typed? Did you do anything to change the way your were perceived?
If you don't like being stereo-typed, don't stereo-type other people. This isn't the easiest thing to do but you just have to start somewhere
