Sh*t Girls Say: Funny Because It’s True? Or True…But Not All That Funny?

The newest episode of Shit Girls Say is out, so I’m pondering the meaning of it all over on iVillage today. Is it really funny? Subversively funny? Sexist-ly funny? Or just not funny enough? Why can’t YouTube just stick to LOL-ing about cats?

One quick coda: I wrote that I didn’t think any real, live, self-respecting girl would ever yell “Twinsies!” when she discovers that she and Juliette Lewis are wearing matching bracelets, the way Kyle Sheppard does in Episode One.

But anyone who has ever shown up wearing the same article of clothing as me can tell you that I will immediately exclaim, “People will know we’re friends!!”

Which, I think you’ll agree, is just better. Nevertheless: Well-played, Sheppard. Well. Played.

  1. Or not all that true or funny? I feel like most of that was things any person would say, regardless of gender.
