Tweets About Being A Woman Without Saying 'Woman'

A tweet asking women to "Tell me you're a woman without telling me you're a woman" has gone viral. And not necessarily for positive reasons. Hundreds of women commented, describing their experiences of being women without revealing their gender in a sentence or two. The majority of comments pointed out an inequality, discrimination, or assumption that they face from the world as a woman, whether it was about their safety when walking alone, the pressures of motherhood, or their career prospects. Here are some of the comments, which show just how far the world still needs to go regarding women's equality.

Kids Describing Their Parent's Jobs: Funny Twitter Thread

One day, I was about seven-years-old when my dad brought me home a bunch of spare stationery from his office. We're talking highlighters, sticky notes, pens, and a stapler. The next day, I went to school and told my teacher that my dad's job was a 'pen tester,' and he sat all day testing out pens to see if they work. His actual job? A marketing director. Oh, to be that blissfully naive again. The phrase 'truth from the mouth of babes' is a reality that many parents live each day. Someone Tweeted, "My friend's daughter was asked by her teacher what does her mother do for a living. Miss thing said move papers around and talk on the phone. My friend is a judge." It received thousands of likes and shares, with people responding with similar funny examples of what they think their parents do for a living. Kids really do say the darndest things!

Large Servings Of Food Movie Goers Snuck Into Theatres: Twitter Thread

Back in the not-so-distant-past when movie theatres were open, there was nothing better than going to your local cinema with your gal pals on a Saturday night, armed with snacks to watch the latest rom-com. A big bucket of sweet and salty popcorn and two hours of Matthew McConaughey? Yes, please! But one thing that never failed to enhance our cinematic experience was the thrill of sneaking real food into the movie theatre and getting away with it. Whether it was a slice of pizza in our purse or a burrito up our sleeve, everything tasted better when we knew we'd snuck it past security. Twitter user @LocalSoundwave asked people to share the foods they've snuck into movie theatres, and the responses reveal just how daring people are. Oh, the guilty thrills of doing something wrong!

Twitter Debate As Tampax Celebrates ‘All People Who Bleed’, In Inclusive Period Campaign

As the world is becoming more and more 'woke,' companies are doing their best to be as inclusive as possible. Corporations are being careful to avoid discrimination of any kind, with some going out of their way to prove just how inclusive they are. Tampax, who in a recent attempt to be inclusive towards trans-people who may still experience periods despite their gender, tweeted, "Fact: Not all women have periods. Also a fact: Not all people with periods are women. Let's celebrate the diversity of all people who bleed!"

The tweet was received mixed reviews and created somewhat of a stir on Twitter, with nearly 30k people commenting. The feminists claimed Tampax's dismissal of women, their primary market, and the only gender who can scientifically menstruate, to be offensive and misogynistic. They especially didn't react well to women being referred to as "people who bleed". But others commended Tampax for their inclusivity, labeling the feminists as 'transphobes', who were confusing sex with gender and denying trans people a period experience. Here are some of the tweets below which show people's responses to the controversial tweet.

Man With 700lbs. Of Beef Can't Get A Date: Funny Twitter Thread

Everyone is looking for different things in a life partner, and everyone knows what they bring to the table. But sometimes, it's better to keep your assets to yourself instead of assuming that you know what your potential suitors want, especially if it makes you sound like a bit of a d-bag. One guy learned this the hard way when he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about being single, despite all his assets. His Tweet said, "My housing is paid for. I make a good salary. I get health insurance, 401k, 700 lbs of beef a year, and I live on a couple hundred acres. I'm a puncher by trade with a bachelor's degree. And I swear you women would rather have a loser than a provider. It's sad"

Twitter roasted him mercilessly, men and women alike and the responses are hilarious. We've compiled some of the funniest ones for you below to scroll through and laugh at.

People's Stories Of Finding Success Over The Age Of 40

Although people typically map out their career path in their 20's, not everyone is fortunate enough to figure out their life's calling at such a young age. Whether it be down to lack of opportunity, becoming a parent and not working, or just not figuring it out sooner, many people only decide what they want to do much later in life. Those who return to school and start a new career at an older age need a tremendous amount of tenacity and determination and should be admired. One guy, Doug Murano, wanted to celebrate these people and tweeted that he was "tired of "under 40" lists," he called for Twitter users to "Show me someone who got their Ph.D. at 60 after losing everything. Give me the 70-year-old debut novelist who writes from a lifetime of love and grief. Give me calloused hands and tender hearts." People were eager to share their 'over-40' success stories, which were the definition of heartwarming. Here are some of the best.

Twitter Users Reveal Ridiculous Statements Overheard At The Movie Theater

Remember the days when we could watch movies in the theater without a care in the world? Our biggest worry was which size popcorn to get (large obviously) or where to sit (back row, middle seats, duh). But those days are distant memories, and who knows when we'll be allowed back into theaters. We wouldn't even mind the obnoxious idiots who talk throughout the movie, or who have their phones on loud—just bring back normality, please! Joining us in movie theater nostalgia is writer Mike Ginn, who recently tweeted: "The thing I miss most about movie theaters is overhearing someone say the dumbest f—king thing I've ever heard before the previews start." His tweet went viral, and he received thousands of replies from people, all sharing the dumbest things they've overheard at the movies. What's yours?

Woman Unnecessarily Flashed Tattoo Artist, Inspires Others To Reveal Similar Mistakes

Life is full of awkward moments that make us wish the ground would swallow us up. We've all had them, and the reality is, we'll probably have more. But my philosophy is that you may as well laugh at your misfortunes, because how else do you recover from them? Writer Sarah Schauer has done just that. Her tweet about the time she mistakingly flashed her tattoo artist has inspired others to share their equally awkward stories of times they flashed various professionals. These accounts of people revealing a little too much flesh to their tattoo artists and doctors will make you cringe on their behalf and probably remind you of your own embarrassments, which will make you cringe some more. Or, one woman so eloquently worded it in her Tweet below, "I would have rather just passed away."

Introducing Male Characters Like Male Screenwriters Describe Women: Twitter Thread

For too long, both in Hollywood and literature, women have often been merely supporting characters for men. As part of the territory, writers go to great lengths in describing the woman's physical appearance, focusing on their beauty (or lack thereof). But what if the tables were turned, and male characters received the same treatment as their female counterparts? What if writers began using equally shallow means to describe male protagonists, focussing solely on their physical appearances? A hilarious Twitter thread asking people to "Introduce a male character the way male screenwriters describe women," has got people doing precisely that, and the results are hilarious! Hollywood, watch out!
