A MIS LECTORAS... y al resto

“Amigos lectores que leerán este libro blog, | despójense de toda pasión | y no se escandalicen al leerlo |
no contiene mal ni corrupción; | es verdad que no encontrarán nada de perfección |
salvo en materia de reír; |
mi corazón no puede elegir otro sujeto | a la vista de la pena que los mina y los consume. |
Vale mejor tratar de reír que derramar lágrimas, | porque la risa es lo propio y noble del alma. Sean felices!
--François Rabelais (circa 1534) [english]

Cómo ser marimacho

How to Be a Tomboy

Do you feel confined by the chains of femininity? Are you horrified at the thought of spending more than two seconds in front of a mirror? Not every girl wants to be glamourous, and sometimes she just wants to be one of the guys. Here's how to step outside the box and be a tomboy.

  1. Avoid wearing soft and powdery colors like they're the plague.
    Light pink is notoriously girly. Stick with bold, darker colors,but avoid black. It makes you look like you have no imagination.
  2. Be physically active, specially with sports, and do it earnestly. Don't join a team just to mine the field for potential boyfriends. Throw yourself into the game, get in touch with your inner competitor, and don't be afraid to break a sweat. Try a really cool sport like martial arts. You get a good workout, meet great people and learn something that you can really use.
  3. Choose clothes that allow you to become physically active at
    the drop of a hat. Jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers are always a good bet. High-heels, skirts, and dresses are no-no's,if you plan on doing anything physical that day .Before you leave the house, ask yourself: "If someone invited me to play football, would I have to turn them down because of the way I'm dressed?" If the answer is
    yes, change.But,if you aren't let your femininity free.
  4. Get used to hearing the people around you belch and make other unpleasant noises and smells with their bodies. Odds are, you'll spend a lot of time surrounded by testosterone, which doesn't always favor good hygiene and etiquette. However, have some self-respect. Don't do it yourself. Let's face it, guys simply can't help it. We can . . . and civilization depends upon us.
  5. Don't be boy crazy. If you want to be like one of the guys, you can't be THAT much into guys. No one's asking you to avoid attraction to the opposite sex...Just don't make it the centerpiece of your focus. There's much more to life than obsessing over guys.
  6. Learn how to talk. Don't gush or talk in a really high pitched voice. Find the right volume and pitch, and don't mumble. Make sure you sound confident. Swearing doesn't mean you're a tomboy, either, so don't do it. It sounds pretty cheap. Use words like "crap" if you get annoyed, don't go around sounding like some x rated movie.
    You don't have to use "dude" or "man", but if you think it helps you and you're comfortable with it, go ahead.

  • Don't get so caught up in being a tomboy that you forget to
    be yourself.
  • Don't try too hard. If you constantly say stuff like "Dude, I hate girly girls" and change very quickly, you'll look like a total poser and nobody will want to hang out with you. Change slowly, and just act how you feel. Besides, if you are comfortable being a tomboy, you won't have any problems with people who want to be
    girly-girls. Everyone should be who they are, and if you don't like someone who is girly, don't point them out and say you hate them because their girly.
  • Your parents may get upset, particularly your Mum. If she's really girly and likes hanging out with you, she may be upset you're changing. Don't worry, just explain you're changing but you're still the same person.
  • Just because you're a tomboy doesn't mean that you have to forget your personal hygiene but you don't have to spend hours in the Bathroom every morning. Shower at least once a day. Though the
    boys may smell bad after a game of football, try not to smell that bad. Wear deodorant and keep yourself clean.
