I think I know why. The problem is that I can't really articulate it. When I think about that grouping of animals, and how I feel about them, I can feel what it is that attracts the hearts nd minds of young females. I can feel it, but I don't know if I can explain it. So before I try, why don't you have a crack at it.
If you're a girl:
- does this trio ring some bells for you? Do you remember loving them, or do you now? Can you articulate this better?
And if you're male:
- have you observed girls' love affairs with these animals? Are you confused about it? Do you have any theories?
One final observation: I think that some girls are seriously gypped in their love of unicorns by inferior ideas about what a unicorn is. They all need to read something like "The Last Unicorn" .
