I'm so different from everyone else :(

I'm the only girl in my school that likes these things. I like boxing, kickboxing, fencing, archery, baseball, basketball, soccer, football, horror movies, movies with fist fights, defending myself with fist fights (only when someone hits me first), gymnastic, lacrosse, kickball, mixed martial arts, fishing, swimming, and most of all, explosions. everyone else does cheerleading and do their nails really pretty. should I be making a big deal about this? I feel kinda left out. some girls call me a tomboy, but what bothers me the most is that they're calling me that in front of everyone. the guys think I'm cool, and they're my friends, but I want a friend that's a girl too. a real one. not one that pretends to be my friend, just so she can lead me into the bathroom just so she can scream " ahhhhhhh, there's a boy in the bathroom!!!" I don't get it. I dress like them, and I look like them. I even act like them and put on makeup and stuff like that. any advice?

You're different so be proud that your not like them! Where's make up and nail polish and all that girly stuff gonna get you in life? It's school girl, be yourself and stop trying to be everyone else. Plus in my opinion, guys are not only way easier to talk to, they are good friends too. Those girls are probably just jealous that you can talk to guys so easily and they can't.

I think you sound like a really cool person :) I'm a girl and I like almost all of the things you mentioned. You just have to ignore those other girls. As long as your happy that's all that matters right? Just, Don't try to be something your not because then it will make you feel even more upset.

You sound like a great girl and there is nothing wrong with you! If people are being that immature, then you are definitely not the problem. However, if you are feeling left out, then just don't express yourself as much when you are around girls. I would pretend I was interested in nails or cheerleading or whatever
