Where does Sidge Girlie end and I begin?


The infamous Sidge Girlie: inspirer of Camfesses, wearer of skinny scarves. She is the scapegoat for all the perceived annoying attributes of Arts students, and her notoriety echoes through the dusty halls of Cambridge.

    If you got:

    <15 = Sorry babe, you can’t sit with us. You’re either a STEM imposter or a West Hub Girlie trying to assert her superiority.

    15-25 = A Sidge Girl-lite. A diet Sidge Girl, if you will. Visit more charity shops, listen to more Shoegaze and read more Virginia Woolf and you too might be able to graduate to a fully-fledged Sidge Girlie!

    25-35 = A certified Sidge Girlie. You probably bought a crochet balaclava last winter, paint your nails silver and insist that Boygenius are sooo underrated. However, you have a self-aware detached irony about your identity as a Sidge Girl. You must embrace your destiny: become the ultimate Sidge Girlie.

    35+ = The ULTIMATE Sidge Girlie. Vintage shops close their shutters as you walk by, coffee shops run out of ice as soon as you step over the threshold, scarves become skinny as you glance judgementally at their owners, and your boyfriend cries in the corner while you declare that you are attracted to every woman ever and, like, maybe two men. The world is yours for the taking.

    The Sidge Girlie is but an idea: it is up to you to make it a reality.
