I’m sorry for coining the phrase “Manic Pixie Dream Girl”

Nathan Rabin:

<blockquote>        <p>Let’s all try to write better, more nuanced and multidimensional female characters: women with rich inner lives and complicated emotions and total autonomy, who might strum ukuleles or dance in the rain even when there are no men around to marvel at their free-spiritedness. But in the meantime, Manic Pixies, it’s time to put you to rest.</p>  </blockquote>
