Not Like the Other Girls deals with the transfer of body properties from reality to the virtual world. The title refers to a person who wants to stand out and put themselves on a different level than the others on social media. Using various tools, she creates an improved version of herself, but meanwhile loses her human qualities through this process - the pores, scars, pimples disappear from the skin, and hair resembles a soft textureless mass. She has become an object, which only exists in the virtual world.

The phenomenon Not Like the Other Girls comes from American 90s chick flick films. The usual scenario for romantic comedies was two female characters. One of them was portrayed according to the beauty standards of Western society and the other one as an intelligent nerd, and both tried to get the same young man’s attention. As a result, internalized misogyny has deepened for decades, with young people growing up with the idea that they should be different from the other women while putting them down.

This phenomenon is placed in the context of social media, where the others are the bodies that exist in the real world.
