Why I Refuse To Call My Daughter A Tomboy
Catherine Connors

Thank you for writing this. I have used the word, “tomboy,” to describe my daughter, and I’ve never liked saying it. And you’ve articulated why for me. It’s a label, a box. And that’s not what my daughter is at all. She’s an individual, an original. We live in a world of labels. Time to let them go.
