Anusha’s brilliant writing captures this phase that I am certain almost every girl has gone through at some point in her life.
Adamant (and not ambitious)
Brash (and not bold)
Fast (and not friendly)
Inflexible (and not independent)
Loud (and not lively)
Stubborn (and not strong willed)

Too thin (or too fat)
Too dark (or not fair enough)
Too opinionated, they complained
A handful, they wailed
They should have instead told me:
We like our women spineless.
