Yes, the word can be interpreted like that.

Would this be like calling a woman butch or a dyke? (Here we go with the family oriented forum debate again, but at least it's 4:00 am when I posted this so there shouldn't be too many young ears or eyes around)

jejeje, Problem is now it it 11 am here and everybody can see this. (wink, wink)
Well, anyway. marimacho is no a very adequate word if you are not using it in a sort of "friendly " atmosphere.

I mean, you can say this, as long as you use the right intonation. but this does not apply here.

I would say:

Me portaba como un chico/chicarrón

Como siempre, habrá más oiniones al respecto.

Well you should say something like "Mi conducta habitual era la de un varón" or "Me portaba como una total marimacho". Maybe "marimacho" is the equivalent for "tom boy", because "mari" comes from "María" and "macho" from "male". (stupid reasoning, I just copied it)
