You tell her to get a life. Women that act girls have a higher chance of being r@p3d than women that don't act girly. Tell her to get a life. You don't like to be like that, and that's all there is to it. Society is changing and she needs to change along with it. We need to stop having so many standards.

You don't do anything, you stay yourself no matter what anyone tells you. I personally can't stand girls who are allways putting on makeup and constantly aware of how they look to others. So keep it up :) (btw almost all these other answers are terrible advice)

Differences are good and people should cherish them. I don't like dresses either, just tell your mom that and maybe she will listen to you. My mom is like that sometimes too, but she tells me that I need to get smarter like some of my friends and it's so annoying!!!!!

Girly? Your mom obviously has some issues of her own. Sometimes, even parents have misguided issues.

Don't know where her obvious issues come from .. whether she is concerned that you might be gay; that she doesn't think you can get a 'man' if you don't 'girl' it up (and that you can't survive without a 'man'); or ... that she is jealous of the confidence you possess by not feeling the need to 'girl' up.

Clothing is a common device used for personal expression. How you feel affects how you dress .. and how you dress affects how you feel. Sometimes, it is given far too much credit.

Personally, I am not that big into dresses or 'girl'ing it up either (on occasion, maybe .. but most of the time, it's just jeans and a t-shirt) .. Now that is not to say I can't still be quite feminine .. even though I can drive pretty much anything from a big rig to a motorcycle, shingle a roof, shovel the driveway, change my on oil and speak my mind.

You have to find out WHO you think you are .. not WHAT your Mom expects you to be. She can make all kinds of noise about what she WANTS you to be, and hopefully she has instilled some positive qualities. You have to work out the details on your own, and decide what kind of person you want to be. You are entitled to your own opinions about how you want to play this game.

Granted, you should have a strong and positive influence from your parents to help you form who you intend to be .. but at the end of the day .. the decision lies with you.

tell her you cant be like her.and she cant make you who you are only you.so what if you dont like that stuff? your mom needs to back off a bit and let you grow up and find who you are.
