“That’s so plain Jane.” Boo! On behalf of all females out there named Jane, stop saying that! I’m not plain! I understand what you’re trying to say when you say that, but it’s highly offensive to anyone named Jane. We like to think of ourselves as special and ANYTHING but PLAIN!
I know this is a normal part of speech and I don’t want you to lose terms that you like to use to explain things/people so I would like to help you replace this in your vocabulary.
Instead of saying, “That’s so plain Jane,” try this:
- She’s not fancy.
- Her style is so boring.
- She’s so ordinary.
- She’s very simple.
- She’s very uncomplicated.
