Trust be told, I was a girl that wasn't really "girly" growing up. I was a late bloomer when it came to caring what I looked like, what I smelled like, how to use make up. It was a bewildering and complicated world, womanhood was. I am so happy I had parents that loved me and didn't mind that I was a little boyish in my disposition. Looking back, I think that's one reason why I'm more of a well-rounded person today. But hey, what do I know. My parents didn't beat the shit of me when I was growing up.
