tik tok made "i'm not like other girls" trendy again... great
Hey everyone welcome back to my channel! Today we’re going to be looking at a topic that some of you guys have been requesting for ages- I took so long to finally make a video mainly because I felt like there were some great videos already up on SEworld talking about the subject so it kind of felt redundant if i made one, but in light of a new Tik Tok trend, I thought this was an opportunity to make a video on the original “i’m not like other girls” phenomenon and it’s new-ish form you might have seen online as of late. Before I blither on a bit more, these are the videos I referenced earlier:
tiffanyferg's I'm Not Like Other Girls" : seworld.info/will/baawktDLmJWVp3E/video
Jordan Theresa's "i'm not like the other girls" : seworld.info/will/hJ_elamVgGuMx2A/video
Tara Mooknee's "the rise of the "pick me girl" meme" : seworld.info/will/eqWYnLG9nmWFp5s/video
Why I mention Tik Tok specifically as the platform that inspired me to make this video is because it’s due to a trend on the app called “introduce yourself as why girls hate you” or “introduce yourself as the reason girls hate you.” The idea is pretty simple, it’s just people using the trend as an opportunity to introduce themselves as the reason they believe to be why girls hate them and boy… is this trend ever filled with “i’m not like other girls”/pick me girls. I thought it was especially interesting considering there’s been a pretty big shift in how people look at girls who claim to be different from everyone else online, being that they’ve turned into the butt of the joke, so the fact that this trend not only popped up but also has caught a ton of traction just seemed really surprising to me. What also felt worth noticing was it seems like the “i’m not like other girls” mentality has shifted from a more victim-esc, “poor me” tone to more of an “i’m a villain and proud” vibe? lol
SO i thought why not reflect on the idea of what “i’m not like other girls” is based on, how it’s branched off into different variations, and try to figure out how even though claiming you’re “different than everyone else” is now clown-able material, it’s still popular online.

    • As a child I was bullied and outcasted so much that I embraced being ...pretty weird, but my true self. This did cause issues with most high school girls they would hate me on spot, to the point where I stoped trying to be friends with girls at the time, but as an adult 50% of women I meet really like that I’m weird and that it’s just who I am and how I dress regardless of if they are weird or normal in style or persona, but the other half truely have a hate for people different to them no matter how much effort you put into trying to bond with them. I think definitely tiktok girls are trying to get attention but in general I’m not surprised girls want to prove to be seperate from other females as females are always lumped together as a whole instead of being treated like individual beings quite often especially if you come from a conservative/old school family. However in saying this the need to put others down in the process is childish and uncalled for but expected from teenagers.

    • No, this is incorrect. I’m 54 and I was ‘not like the other girls’ EVER, nor was I really like the BOYS- because the way I naturally gendered falls pretty much right in between what our society considers ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’. As far back as I could remember had people assuming I had some sort of “masculinity fetish”- that I thought I was, wanted to ‘act like’, or ‘be’ a boy/man. And it used to INFURIATE me because I was simply following my natural inclinations (being “un-feminine” was not discouraged or punished in my family full of people who grew up dirt poor in rural areas during the Depression when EVERYONE did what they had to regardless of gender and NONE of whom fit neatly into gender essentialist boxes) which included climbing trees & playing in the dirt *just as much* as it did playing dress up & with Barbies. If I’d been born 30 years later, I might have grown up considering myself NB or bigender, but in the 1970s it was either girl or boy and the one thing I have always known FOR SURE was that I was NOT A BOY, nor did I have the slightest desire to be one. I wanted the freedom to be MYSELF without hearing anyone’s stupid commentary, because it was patently obvious to me EVEN AS A CHILD that if I did not fit into society’s definition of what was considered “feminine/female” it wasn’t because there was something wrong with ME, there was something terribly wrong with SOCIETY’S DEFINITION OF FEMININE & MASCULINE. And if nobody else could see it, they were morons and it wasn’t my fucking problem. But ya know, it wasn’t ME going around when I was a kid/tween/teen/young adult going around all HEY I’M NOT LIKE THE OTHER GIRLS...the people who wouldn’t let me forget it were THE. OTHER. GIRLS. The girls I DESPERATELY wanted to be friends with who instead bullied, tormented, and ostracized me until I reached the point (around 11/12) when I realized that bullies were just fucked up individuals whose bullying had NOTHING to do with me at all and stopped giving any fucks whatsoever about what they thought, and found my friends in the OTHER girls who had been scorned for not being like the other girls. Boys bullied me too, but at least a FEW of them would be friendly/talk to me because we shared similar interests (Star Wars, D+D, etc) even if they did not actually “get” a girl being into those things. So FU with this “wOmEn reJeCtinG TrAdiTioNal FeMmE sTeReoTyPes = FeTisHizNg MaScULiNty/rEjeCtiNg bEiNg A wOmeN

    • I’m 54 and I still hate pink, but that’s because I’ve been obsessed with the color BLUE for as long as I can remember (and totally not kidding when I say ‘obsessed’.) I can still quite clearly remember being a small child (4 or 5) and RANTING to my mom about some cheap seesaw toy that had a little people no plastic girl on one end and a blue plastic boy on the other about ‘why is pink the GIRL color and BLUE the boy color? I HATE pink I want BLUE to be the girl color!’ But I also hated red because it hurt my eyes, and orange because it was ‘ugly’- which was because of undiagnosed sensory processing disorder. I now like red and LOVE orange, but find most pinks nauseating.

  • I’ve never necessarily thought of myself as “not like other girls,” but for a long time I didn’t want anything to do with anything feminine (clothes, nail polish, makeup, etc.). Those things just had a negative connotation to me, and I also lacked the self esteem to try and pull off anything other than tshirts and jeans. Over the past few years, I’ve realized that it’s ok to be into more “feminine” things, and my self confidence has grown immensely. I love doing nail art now and wearing things other than tshirts. I definitely think that the books I read and movies and tv shows I saw growing up influenced how I saw things like fashion and wearing nail polish, because they were often portrayed as shallow and vain.

  • I do not understand how some of these girls probably preach about love, peace and to love one another then yet make tiktoks or videos talking about how they're not like other girls or reason why girls don't like you and just degrade other women. it makes no sense and it's upsetting.

  • 16 year old me *in high school*- “I only having guy friends”... turns out I just had major depressive disorder and my brother’s friends were at my house a lot, so I interpreted that as them being my friends. 18 year old me *at a women’s college*- “huh.. other girls are actually pretty nice! I appreciate feeling respected and like my opinions matter” 24 year old me *women’s college graduate*- “I WISH I COULD BE LIKE OTHER GIRLS BC THEY’RE FUCKING AMAZING! INSPIRING! TALENTED! INTELLIGENT! BEAUTIFUL!” It was a pretty big shock to me when I learned how deep my internalized misogyny went. So glad I spend my time lifting other women up instead of shitting on all of us 💕

  • Oof, my “not like other girls” phase has been basically my entire life 🤣 I think as a result of being bullied at a young age I found comfort in being labeled ✨ quirky & unique ✨ I still have men who are attracted to me use that line that I’m “not like other girls”, thinking that they’re complimenting me. I don’t associate with men like that because they’re usually trying to make me their manic pixie dream girl 😬 which I think is another point to be made, the manic pixie dream girl trend has sort of enhanced that idea in men that “unique” women are somehow better than everyone else. It’s disgusting and I can always spot a misogynist when they compare me to Romona Flowers 🥴

  • For me I think it's partially because we want others to share our interests and want to talk about them but we feel pressured not to. This can lead us to believe that others don't share that interest but it's just not something that always comes up in conversation. I've found myself trying to find the most subtle ways possible to express what I'm interested in.

  • Personally, I think the root of my 'im not like other girls' phase started when my dad said that the girls around me wearing makeup were 'asking for it' from guys. At least that's when I noticed it more prominently. I was like 10 at the time. No one was wearing makeup. Well, I didn't want my dad to think I was asking for it! So I decided to be the complete opposite. Wore baggy clothes, outgrew and didn't keep up my hair, little effort in appearance, kept to myself and thought reading books was a personality (but I did thoroughly enjoy reading but also thought it made me better cause iM rEAdInG bOoKs anD nOt oN sOCiAl mEDia). Took me almost 8 years to realize the damage my misogynistic father ingrained in me, and to undo a lot of misogynistic thoughts of my own.

For a while I just accepted the "I'm one of the boys" feeling. I still had girl friends, but I didn't have as much fun since I preferred "boy things" that they didn't even want to try. But now that I am more free on the internet and know better I am dying to find girls to play with me and talk about shit I enjoy. I wanna be girly without neglecting my fondness for games.

  • "Introduce yourself as the reason other girls hate you" I hate to be the bearer of bad news but other girls probably don't even think about you. I don't think this is a "trying to impress boys" thing anymore as much as it is trying to convince yourself that you're more important than other people which I hate to say, is a pretty normal thing for teenagers. It's why "living rent free in your mind" and "Idc about haters" mindsets are considered cool nowadays.

Ok Jessica, we get it you have a Manga wall and you watch anime but so does millions of other people in the world MOVE. I hate how most of the people on the app have a mentality that everything started in Tiktok. Every trend, every show, every fashion style, etc. when these things have been done years before. Can we just get the artists and actual good content creators to be the only ones on the app instead? Geez.

  • I used to think I was different than other girls because of my wardrobe. One day I would wear a cute sundress and sandals, the next baggy jeans and a vintage band tee and my dad's old flannel, one day I look like a pin up girl, and the next I would be rocking athleasure or pj's to school. I thought I was different because my style was always changing based on my mood and what I liked rather than what was trendy and I thought I was different because every girl in school seemed to have a one look and stick with it. However, now that I'm older I realized that doesn't make me different but rather cumulation of every girl. I am complicated and I'm not just one trait I'm many and that's OK. I'm not like "other girls" I'm simply a combination of multiple because that is what males me happy. That is what makes me, well me and I love that I can embrace the idea and that I am a mix of everything and I am like other girls because every girl is so complicated and amazing and beautiful and I'm so happy that we have this divine bind that only girls can understand. I guess I just like the bond of being just like other girls, not to fit in, but because I'm simply being me and in that unites me rather than alienates me from others.

  • The closest I got to a “not like other girls” phase was middle school. I grew up in a non religious house that listened to rock in the Bible Belt. Not exactly unique but all my female friends at the time were raised by those judgmental religious types. So because I’m not religious and I listen to rock that must mean that I’m a terrible influence and must be culled or avoided. Pair that with my avoidance of “preppy” girls, basically the volleyball team, because they were all extremely rude to anyone not in their friend group and yeah there’s definitely a feeling of “otherness” to be had. Of course I make it to high school and found female friends who either liked the same things I did or were willing to be friends with people who weren’t exactly like them. Just better people over all. So idk don’t force yourself to hang out with people who make you feel “different” or “wrong” and you’ll be less likely to lash back out through the “I’m not like other girls, I’m better” response.

  • I think pick me is the counter part to simp no one wants to be a pick me no one wamts to be a simp yet it is so ingrained in how we were taught to be. I saw a very interesting video on femininity the youtuber is called "Chloe" She seems to present to her audience that pick me is very much a mindset and behavior that comes from growing up in poverty. which makes a lot of sense. Those who live in poverty feel isolated and are desperate to find someone or be loved or be scene as "different" to have "VALUE" This is definitely an issue of poverty and an issue of mental health. Kind of like gender dysphoria mixed with wanting to identify with a gender buuuut not knowing a healthy expression of that gender. Because, you know,... poverty does not teach us how to thrive it teaches us survival. I like the way "Chloe" approaches pick me mindset! it is compassionate and also non-judgmental. Leaving space to explore and be curious and grow...

  • This was a very interesting video as I am not on TikTok and don‘t want to haha. I think this whole problem is simply based on the harsh comparison and fear of loosing or lacking among women. There are to many standards that apply to girls. This results in toxic rivalry. But this is a very interesting discussion too long for just one comment :)

  • I didn't go through the I'm not like other girls phase. I went to gender identity crisis instead! Yay!

  • I remember seeing those comparative memes where the other girls were good at makeup and you were just a mess, but the thing is I'm actually good at it, yet I wish I weren't so I could share that and feel special, haha.

  • It's all about giving people a chance instead of outright rejecting them because of your bias about them. I hope I can get better at it :-)

  • Character development is when you start liking the color pink

    • It is! (I don't like the color pink, i think it's unfair to the other shades. But i'm a lot like other girls in more aspects then I'm not, and that realisation was character development for me.)

  • The "I only hang out with guys because girls are tOo mUcH dRaMa" is kinda funny to me because having both male and female friends I found depending on what was going on in their lives (mostly relationships) the guys could have more drama than the girls sometimes and other times the girls have more drama.

  • My bestfriend was Dance Team Captain, and I did Chess Club and Math League. I didn't have a hateful I'm-not-like-other-girls phase, but I had one. I think not being straight helped in not hating girls.

  • I practically had the perfect set up to go through the inlog stage. Since I was young in school I didn't have any friends and I was bullied and so my only friends were my brother and male cousins so I grew up to play videogames and rough house and stuff like that and it's also part of my personality that I just don't like gossiping or talking in general(not to add that I couldn't even speak the language of the school I was going to) so from the age of 9 to 12 I went through that nasty ass stage but most of it stemmed from me actually genuinely not being able to fit in with the other girls, i didn't like boys, i didn't like dressing up I didn't like gossiping, and that isn't because of the bad prejudice around it, I just didn't and still don't, but then I met someone in my class that also played videogames and was more masculine but also liked makeup and dressing cool and I thought to my self that maybe I'm not so different from other girls and that there are others like me and I was so relieved at that moment I really thought I wasn't meant to be in this world and I actually had really bad years because of my inlog mentality. Now i luckily found group of friends that I really connect with and am also connecting with people online and I've accepted myself a lot more.
