Quirky suggests a description of appearance, of colourful tights, beads, and people singing where they’re not meant to sing, but it quietly nods at something deeper. It dismisses the thing, the film, book, woman (quirkiness, I think, has become a gendered trait) as frivolous. Quirky is a pat on the head of art. It is the “Calm down, dear” of the ageing critic, the patronising wink. The “aaah”.

I don’t know how people can say Monsters vs Aliens was a crap movie from Dreamworks … Susan Murphy/Ginormica was the first female character I actually connected with, clumsy, weird, huge dreams, gets ahead of herself, trusts too easily, little confidence in herself. Eventually realizes she can kick ass, doesn’t need Derek, loves her true friends and her quirky self.

She was not THAT girl. She was not a princess, she was not a valentine, or a crush, or a girly-girl. She was not THAT girl.
No, she was crazy, she was awkward, she was a tomboy, she was blunt and she was different. And she would never be THAT girl.
