Look, we all have quirks and qualities that make us special, but the whole “you’re (or coming from women themselves, “I’m”) not like other girls” just instinctively makes me sigh. Because what this is typically code for is: “girl who does not fit certain femme-coded attributes/interests and this somehow makes her superior”.

You can not like wearing makeup, dresses, etc. That’s fine. But trust me, you are like other girls because there’s getting on 4 billion of us. And if you don’t share some qualities with a least a few of people you’re probably a para-dimensional being here for our tasty appendices.

Also, the Manic Pixie Dream Girl is still a narrative romantic prop, just for people who think collecting vinyl is a personality trait.
