Girly? Hmmm. I would say my girly-ness pops out unexpectedly. I get teased for loving fashion magazines but generally wear t-shirts and jeans. I have a utility skirt that I adore for summer, it is denim, knee-length and has a lot of pockets. I almost only wear one pair of earrings over and over, when I remember to put them on, although I own others. I like eye make-up but use it according to mood not routine.
I do not expect men to treat me differently but watch me swoon when a guy helps me with my coat or carries something for me that I am completely capable of carrying for myself. I am a total sucker for well-mannered men, especially when I can feel the vibe that it is not by rote but by nature that they are courteous. I find it a bit illogical to care if he got that door for me but it still matters and garners him points.
I related to many of the other posts here, nice to have company.

Very much so. I need to be extremely, extremely comfortable with whoever I will be in order to wear a dress with nice heels and makeup. It's sad b/c I actually loooove dresses (am ok on makeup and shoes). But I never wear them for fear someone might think I am a 'girly girl.' I think it's because my entire life I've known that what makes me unique is my brain and the term 'girly girl' just has such airhead connotations with it that I am afraid less perceptive people will confuse girly appearance with lack of intelligence. And then I have nothing to go on with. I don't mean to offend anyone if they are girly. I as a female INTP know that girliness and brains aren't mutually exclusive, but I can just never trust the rest of the world to not think that.
Being further along in my career, it doesn't matter as much now as it seems to mean around peers when younger; as long as I look professional at the workplace and express intelligence in how I do my work, so that I'm taken seriously, the rest of my life is pretty much mine to look however I want, and at this point I've surrounded myself with people who know who I am rather than me having to worry as much about how I'm perceived... they know I'm smart, so it doesn't matter whether I dress the part or not...

Nooo... I like it better when you girls giggle while discussing anime, video games, or string theory.

Giving it thought, our Ne can manifest in many ways, so doing so in feminine ways within a woman would not be unheard of. Sadly, people stereotype INTPs because MBTI has reached a "pop culture" status. This is dangerous, because it can cause people to limit themselves in what they do or feel capable of.

I am very female on the outside. I am even what people consider a sexy woman. I wear skirts and high heels. Yet, on the inside I am everything but girly. I don't care for children, for example. People get confused by me.

As a child, I was. I liked to make up games such as fairies or queens, and dress up in dresses. However, as I entered adolescence, not really. I don’t think I care about appearence as much as the girls around me. I just try to look clean.. ha.ha.ha. I like stationary with aesthetic designs but caring about appearance is redundant to me...

No, not really girly. I never wear make up and my hair tend to be messy almost all the time (I even comb it, damn it! Apparently it is the rebellious age). I don't even wear girly clothes most of the time (unless it's summer).

The way I dress and put my hair up is pretty "neutral" in terms of masculinity or femininity. But I feel that I do have a feminine and emotional side, I'm just embarrassed to show it to anyone. >_> Online tests usually give me an INFP result.. dichotomy-wise, maybe I lean towards the INxP end of the spectrum or something, but yeah. lol. Despite not expressing it much, my feminine side influences me a lot, I think...

People say I look girly, but I have never been called girly. Most people who know me well call me the exact opposite, which makes sense. I have always tried being more girly, not because of society but more so out of trying to blend in with girls my age. When that didn't work, I tried the opposite(there used to be this big tomboy craze where I lived), and that did not work. Gave up in grade 7.

I still do not understand girls my age... They seem so alien to me, yet ironically enough I feel more comfortable around them(though technically speaking most boys have always been a lot nicer to me, in comparison to my own gender). Probably one of the reasons why I chose to go to an all-girls high school.

 
And now...

I know a trait of ours is supposed to be gender neutrality.
That's just a stereotype. It's really not uncommon for any girl to enjoy being girly.

Although I will include the fact that I feel extremely masculine next to both most men and women. I try to be feminine, but I'm not short and petite with cute features, I don't squeal over babies and fluffy animals, etc. etc. etc.

*My av is a guy atm but I'm a girl lol.
