If the recent terrifying abortion legislation and the unreasonable backlash towards female superheroes haven’t clued you in: 2019 is kind of a dumpster fire for women! Not only can we not make our own choices about our own bodies, but pretty much everything that we deem positive and exciting is dumped on by naysayers (read: men).
I know, I know, I say stuff like that pretty much every year — but that’s because every year, it’s true.
So, in between protesting and making our voices heard, how do we cope? Well, with humor and a persevering grimace on our faces, for one. And thankfully, these tweets about the hilarious despair of being a woman in these troubling times are here to empathize (while we all scream into the void):
I wish Old Spice catered to women. Tired of smelling like baby powder & gentle breezes. I wanna walk into a room & have everyone look up & be like, “oh shit, this bitch smells like fuckin Eagle Fangs & she is not to be trifled with.” Can’t command respect smelling like a diaper.— ghost mom (@radtoria) April 12, 2019
