The girl crush is such a funny thing; I am glad someone put a name to it. It is not a matter of wanting to be with the girl, or woman, so much as it is wanting to BE her.
Now that I understand it, and it has a name, I am not ashamed to tell you who my girl crushes were when I was a girl myself. Here goes: Natalie Wood. Raquel Welsh. Ann Margaret. Marilyn Monroe, of course. Vivian Leigh.
I wanted to jump into their beautiful skin and to be the object of admiration and, perhaps, desire.
