Why dress like a boy but

I saw several girls today that have short boy haircuts and wearing boys clothing but have enough make up on to be a drag queen. Can someone explain why if you do everything you can to look like a boy, you still wear makeup to that extent?

  • They're called "bois". It's a lesbian term. They look like boys but are still very fem. Ever watch the L word? You learn alot about lesbians from that show. There's a character named Shane who looks and acts like a guy but is still very fem and wore make up.

  • I used to dress like a boy too, maybe its to show their tomboy side and stil show some femininity, not sure if I spelled that last word right, curses spell check!!!

  • AngeLnChainZ...because I'm am curious as to why someone does this. It's not something I'm familiar with so that is part of me increasing my knowledge database.

  • My daugher wears her hair super short and kinda dresses boyish (she's 16) and at the moment has a tendency to slather on the make-up. Not into girls though...the boys are calling and pounding on the door. She is simply more comfortable that way, as I am, minus the short hair. I don't think it means necessarily anything to do with their sexuality at all...maybe it's just their personal style?
