Are you a ‘假小子’?

Chinese words, learning Chinese, ladette, tomboy

"假小子 (jiǎ xiǎo zi, tomboy)" is a young woman whose social behaviour is similar to that of male adolescents or young men. "假小子" behaves in a confident and noisy way, who drinks alcohol and may enjoy sports or other activities that are traditionally enjoyed by men.

That girl insists on playing only with boys and gets a boy's haircut.
