Tomboy vs Girly Girl: Who Wins? - from Em and Lo

Em & Lo Em & Lo
This week on EMandLO.com, we asked our Wise Guys the following question: “Regarding the “guy’s girl”: Is a woman who’ll shoot pool and pound a few brews automatically sexier than a girly girl?” Straight Single Guy Chris said in response: "There is nothing sexier than a girl in a tight football jersey. There is nothing less sexy than a girl that knows more about the Giants than I do." So what do you guys think? Or do you think, like some of our readers, that it's a stupid question to ask in the first place?

I know both types, and they appeal to certain groups. I guess it comes down to whatever you feel most comfortable with.

Me, I prefer my guys who want me to be a girly girl. I am a girl, that's why I play, hit, and drink like one.

Agreed 100%. Being tomboy-ish is nice every once in a while, but I love that my guy likes me to wear jewelry and keep my nails nicely painted.

I'm a tomboy, but just because I'm a tomboy that doesn't make me automatically like pool or football. I don't like to do those sorts of things. Also, I'm just not a dress person. I can dress nice when I need to, but it wont be a dress. It'd probably just be a nice pair of pants and a shirt.

Though to me a pure "girly-girl" or pure "tomboy" doesn't exist.

I say go with whatever makes you comfortable. My husband likes a mix. You need a little bit of both to balance things out (thats in his opinion)

I know it's a cop-out but I like it both ways. My wife is into football, hockey, and played basketball when she was younger. But at the same time she IS the girly girl: shoes, shopping, make-up, and no way in hell she's sleeping in a tent in the middle of nowhere. It's all about finding the right mix.

I think that all of us, guys and girls alike, are best when we are well-rounded as humans. I love that my wife can be feminine, yet can also talk sports, help with construction, etc. She is all woman, but is not the type to avoid doing things that might mess up her nails/hair.

I would imagine it depends on the person and their preferences. some people are going to prefer a tomboy and some are going to prefer someone more girly, and that's okay. I don't think someone should try and act more like one or the other if that's not who they are to try and please a partner.

I agree. I'm a gamer and I am not a fan of dresses unless it might be in a costume sort of way. Just don't feel comfortable in dresses, never have.

I might be a tomboy but that doesn't immediately make me overly masculine. I still paint my nails and enjoy purses and shoes

I like that my wife can be both. There's a time and a place for each.

I can be both but I prefer to get right in the mix with the guys and I am not afraid to get dirty and I do not have to have perfect clothes and hair and make-up everyday but I can also dress to kill.

I prefer more well rounded people, but there is advantages and disadvantages to both and it really just comes down to personally preference.
