Hi, I'd like to know if we can say that a girl is boyish. If she dresses like a boy, and play boy's game, is she a boyish girl?

Thanks a lot

    By saying "Tomboy" you would be using an acceptable idiom which keeps the sobriquet or nickname out of the realm of lesbianism. Your term "boyish" might leave some doubt since it is not the preferable description.

    Oh yes, welcome to the forum.
