The spinster cliché really annoys me. There’ll be a 40 year-old woman, eating ice cream alone in her small apartment, desperately wishing a man would marry her. In real life, some women are happily single, believe me.
Every girl in every movie and TV show is absolutely obsessed with her boyfriend or obsessed with getting one. All the girls who have a boyfriend are portrayed as “having it all,” and the girls who don’t are branded as losers. Why do we need a significant other in order for people to accept us? It’s dumb, and really, really degrading.
