Growing up, Liz Prince knew she was different. As soon as she can, she starts throwing fits and demanding to be kept from anything girly. Dresses are torture. Pink is horrible. And girls? Girls seem to be weak, always need rescuing, have to always look good, and never take part in any of the awesome adventures that knights, hunters, and boys can. But abstaining and being against the gender norms placed on her make her stand out, get bullied, and lead to more and more trouble. The problem is that she doesn’t like the confines of what girls are supposed to be.Being girly just isn’t her thing.
