This exactly. I have a bogstandard tomboy daughter and have had so many people attempt to "validate" her that I no longer let her leave the house without a piece of jewelry or a headband. It's like hanging a string of garlic around her neck before sending her in to vampires.

Wow, that's insanely sexist for people to be acting like your daughter might not be a girl because she's a tomboy. I can't even imagine someone being such an extreme sexist as to think girls can't be tomboys, I doubt even the most conservative people would go that far in the modern day. The misogyny of TRAs truly knows no bounds.

This is the most accurate way it could possibly be described, they are truly predators and that's a smart way to keep your daughter safe from them. It's so sad it has come to this.
