It saddens me to see girls proudly declaring they’re not like other girls – especially when it’s 41,000 girls saying it in a chorus, never recognizing the contradiction. It’s taking a form of contempt for women – even a hatred for women – and internalizing it by saying, “Yes, those girls are awful, but I’m special, I’m not like that”, instead of stepping back and saying, “This is a lie”.

This article is really interesting. I see it so often, “I’m not like other girls”, “I’m not like other girls, I like video games” “I’m not like other girls - I don’t like shopping” etc
