I hate that term. Hate, hate, hate it. I’m possibly the girliest girly-girl I know, yet I’m also a die-hard gearhead, a natural builder, and everything else cookie-cutter “tomboy.” It’s not a phase, and I don’t like the masculinization of my girlyness, just because I’m good at lots of things men like to call their own.

Ok, that was venting. It felt good. :) 
Just another $.02 but from a binary-identifying human, that’s always wished that term would just go away. Oy, the perils of all binary trappings!
