The heroines of "Swearing Off Stars" have to fight to exist as women and as lesbians, in the context of both the society and their own families.   While I am no longer swearing off men entirely, I have learned that I have a lot more fun when I go out with the sole purpose of having fun with my friends rather than looking for someone to flirt with. Meghan Trainor’s song “No” has kind of become my personal weekend anthem, and I’m okay with that. 7.
