Good use of the wildgeneralizations tag.

Accurate and well acted. Reminds of the old Harvard Sailing Team "Boys will be girls" video.

I misread that as "Shit Girl Says." I wanted to hear what Shit Girl had to say!

That wasn't good enough to merit an overused meme.

I laughed. Then I mentally checked to see how much of that shit this girl says.

(I'm good.)

They totally left out "Ugh, I'm on my period" and "These shoes hurt my feet" and "I wonder if it's on sale." Maybe that's in part two, when the release the companion video, "Shit guys do"...a photo montage of socks on floors, wandering eyes, and objects without caps.

Stereotypes are fun!

Wait! I say all those things, too!

I was hoping for more Juliette Lewis and less something-other-than-Juliette Lewis.

And I'm not even talking about the video.

They also left out "You keep making fun of women and I'm going to take this wig off and beat the crap out of you."

no women in my life talk about this. the last woman in my life i talked to talked about how much she wanted to kill children, and the woman before that was about some money thing, and the one before that was reminding me of a academic lunch, and the one before told me she was picking someone up from the airport, and the one before that about weekend plans.

Some of these, I think, give some interesting insight into how girls are socialized differently from boys. Towards the beginning, almost all of the "shit" has to do with sharing. Sharing tasks ("Hey, can you get my purse?"), sharing thought processes ("Oh, what's my password again!"), sharing experiences ("Let me read you this e-mail!"), etc. This, apparently, is a feminine thing to do, implying that boys are socialized to not do this. If that's true, it makes me really sad for all the little boys being taught (implicitly or explicitly) that sharing is too girly for them.

And then, as the video goes on, it just turns into stupider cliches. I've never in my life seen two women go up to each other, bounce in place while clasping arms, and screech.

"Sharing tasks" and "sharing thought processes" would be better described as delegating chores.

Based on this I intuit that you have not spent much time on or near a major college campus.

I look forward to the reasonable, educational and enlightening conversation this link is sure to spawn!

But why was there Juliette Lewis? But why?

This is maybe the most sexist thing I've seen on Metafilter since, well, a hell of a long time.

It's not funny. It's not what girls really say. Saying it all as a guy dressed in drag is the moral equivalent of blackface.

Oh, and girl is a child. Adult females are generally referred to as women.

Yeah, I know, I should FIAMO. But this is worth calling out.

Shit girls date.

It's funny, I laughed. I liked the eating potato chips bit at the end -- wildly funny to me.

Has that shit ever come out of this girl's mouth? Sure, yeah, but that doesn't mean shit about who I am as a person. Even if I can relate to some degree about what they're poking fun of, it's not who I am or what I do, nor does it demean me in any way.

How many Metafilter users does it take to change a lightbulb?

That's not funny and I'll explain why.....
