We say jia xiao zi(假小子)when this kind of girl was very small,usually they are children,they are so-called"fake boy".

If you say Nan ren puo(男人婆),It probably refer to a woman.

You could try using "李宇春" as for tomboy. :lol: Sometimes it may insult or offend some people though.

Female hooligan泼妇 (po fu)

bad(immoral) girl 骚货(sao hou) 骚B (sao bi) 贱货(jian hou)贱B(jian bi)

sao1 B jian4

A female juvenile delinquent--女少年犯(i doubt its a slang) . i know they called 太妹 in HK movie.

A female punk -- 朋克妞

Does anyone here know any other terms? Please let me know. Thank you. :D

It is easy! You can always tell the difference between a male dragon and a female dragon by observing the Dragon’s Generations (i.e. Chinese and Vietnamese people), right? :mrgreen:

Thanks!
