She was referring to female decorum in Myanmar.”

The Perfect Girl: I’m supposed to be pretty, skinny, smart (but not too smart), cool, funny, and flawless. All without trying.
This rant is by Lexi Harder, who lives in Philadelphia and describes herself as a 17-year-old part-time mermaid, part-time hibernating bear who spends her free time watching British period dramas on the internet and cleaning her room.
