“I Was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl” – From New Statesmen

“I Was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl”

“You can spend your whole life being a story that happens to somebody else. You can twist and cram and shave down every aspect of your personality that doesn’t quite fit into the story boys have grown up expecting, but eventually, one day, you’ll wake up and want something else, and you’ll have to choose.

Because the other thing about stories is that they end. The book closes, and you’re left with yourself, a grown fucking woman with no more pieces of cultural detritus from which to construct a personality.”

This article by Laurie Penny is sheer brilliance.
