Where has the tomboy gone? She's still around, she just no longer needs that label -- or its dress code. Nor does she need marketing-driven pressure to start worrying whether she's pretty and stylish at ever earlier ages.

Society makes it so tough to be a girl/woman. On the other hand, I find women/girls generally to be more savvy, deeper intellectually, more caring, harder-working, and generally more fun to be around than men/boys. I think the societal pressures on girls/women make them more aware of their place in society, surroundings, and relationships.

When are people going to stop labeling kids? "She's a girly girl" or "she's a tomboy". Ridiculous. Each person is unique and should not be pigeon holed.
