I think the reason why the phrase “I’m not like most girls” annoys me so much is because women have been conditioned to feel like they have to disassociate themselves from the female sex to be recognised as an interesting human being and if that isn’t fucked up then I don’t know what is
I’ve tried to explain this to a lot of people but this is better than the things I’ve said on it.
One of the most interesting interpretations I’ve read, because despite that there’s a dissociation happening, it’s still a comparison, meaning there’s still some level of association going on. Bizarre. I do believe this is what we call a paradox. Then again, perhaps someone has a degree in psychology or did the research and actually knows that they’re “not like most girls.” Oddly still, that doesn’t mean they’re automatically above average. They could be below, neither of which are automatically good or bad without knowing what we’re talking about.
