What you don’t know if how long I struggled with that expression: Girl Crush. Because I abhor it.
And last night on the Mindy Project, it finally put into words why the expression bothers me so much. To quote Mindy’s character, “no one is going to think you’re gay for saying crush.”
It’s true, you know. I have crushes on tons of girls. Mindy Kaling. Taylor Swift. And the girl at Aritzia who always asks me if I’ve lost weight even though I’ve gone up two jeans sizes since I started this blog.
So I think we should all agree to get rid of the expression, “girl crush.”
And for now on, when you email me to tell me how much you’re obsessed with me, you can just tell me how you have a crush on me.
I totally know what you mean.
See what else Mindy Kaling wore on the Mindy Project.
