Hello. I'm interested in and am doing research on Taiwanese Hokkien youth, street and college slang. What Taiwanese Hokkien slangs for "tomboy"-"girl that likes to do "guy" things"-like climb trees, ride motorcycles, drink and smoke, etc. -besides 查甫體 and "T". Please let me know, and please list as many Taiwanese Hokkien slangs for "girl that likes to do "guy" things" as possible. Thank you. :D

Sorry, I forgot it is for "hokkien". Other than the one you put, I couldn't recall anything else.. 男人婆 is mainly used for taiwanese mandarin, but definitely not "lesbian"

No, "jia xiaozi" is not a Taiwanese Hokkien term, not even in Taiwan
