Don’t act like you notice pretty girls around you; don’t stare at other girls like that, everyone will think it’s creepy; “And it was so weird to know she was in the locker room…” don’t be too friendly with your girl friends or they might think you’re hitting on them; don’t hug for too long or make too much eye contact; don’t ask to have sleepovers anymore; “She’ll probably sneak up on you in the middle of the night like, ‘hey pretty thang!!’” in school, don’t ask about loving women, it’s not something you need to know; “‘Lesbian,’ that’s just a porn category. Hot.” this is how you flirt with boys, this is how you go further with boys; this is how you make yourself attractive to boys; what if I don’t want to be attractive to boys?; well then there must not be any cute boys your age, they are the only option, you know; this is how you should feel when a boy likes you; yes, it’s normal to feel like you might throw up, that means you like him too; stop wearing those masculine clothes; they make you stand out, but not in the right way; “You just look so pretty in a dress!” this is how you should dress feminine, to make boys notice you; this is how you should act feminine, to make boys want you; even if you think you don’t want boys now, it will be important in the long run; these are the books you should like about boys chasing girls; these are the songs you should like about boys chasing girls; these are the celebrities you should fawn over; these are the love stories that get happy endings; these are the love stories that never get happy endings; but what if I want a happy ending?; then I guess you’ll just have to find the right man.
