What Is The Cringiest "Not Like Other Girls" Moment From A Movie Or TV Show That Still Bothers You?

Literally every line in Mean Girls 2.

Jenna Ortega has been praised recently for actively changing lines — or omitting them altogether — while filming Wednesday to "make [the character] sound human." And one of those lines revealed that Wednesday was definitely originally written with way more "pick me" tendencies — a concept where a woman rejects stereotypical femininity in an attempt to be "just one of the guys."

Movies and TV shows that have characters with "not like others girls" behavior — without calling out the character or challenging the trope (a la Gone Girl) — can, in some cases, be harmful. By saying, "I'm not like those other girls," a character is essentially saying, "I'm better for not being feminine." The phrase is also used as a way to pit women against each other, often in the context of competing for a man's affection, which perpetuates unnecessary stereotypes.

This concept is nothing new. Characters have been saying they're "not like other girls" for years. So I want to know the most shameless example you can think of from a movie or TV show.

It could be this moment from Mean Girls 2 where Jo, the main character, literally calls herself not "like most girls," which implies that all other girls are actually horrible people.

Jo deletes a text of another girl getting bullied, the guy next to her says "Most girls would have laughed, texted back, or posted a status update," and she replies "Do I look like most girls?"

Or this scene from A Cinderella Story where Austin Ames, trying to figure out Sam's identity, insinuates that she's "not like other girls" simply because she'd rather eat a cheeseburger than a rice cake.

Sam says she'd rather have a Big Mac than a rice cake, and Austin replies "I like a girl with a hearty appetite, and you just eliminated 50% of the girls in our class"

Or this moment from the first season of Scream Queens, where Grace thinks she's better than everyone else because she just wants a regular coffee.

Grace, who is white, says "those white girl pumpkin spice lattes annoy me," the barista says he's in love and asks her name for the order, and she says "Senorita Awesome"
