“Oh, so you’re a fan, then?” They always ask.
“Yeah!” I reply. “Well, more of a fangirl, really.”
For the record, my friends, that oh shouldn’t be an oh of oh, a fangirl. That should be an oh of sympathy, an oh of pity, an oh of understanding. An oh, you poor darling.
Well, that’s precisely the topic we’ll explore these next few blog posts! I feel as though the fangirl is an understudied wildlife that needs more attention. (You needn’t know I am one to accept this.)
Exploration of the Fangirl Species will be organized thusly:
1. Definition of a fangirl & an example
2. Fangirl subspecies
3. Fangirl social interactions (including warring fangirldoms and general animosity explained)
4. Things that attract fangirls
5. In conclusion: Why a fangirl should be pitied
I hope you enjoy this deeply scientific journey we're about to embark on!
