Over the course of my time as a person who works, lives, and dies by the ‘net (slang for “internet”), I have come to realize that one of my favorite consistent memes are Just Girly Things parodies. You are familiar with them, I am sure? If so, you will know that creating a “Just Girly Thing” involves taking an arbitrary thing that most human people tend to enjoy, like “red velvet cake” or “snow days” and putting some color-saturating filters and a curly, florid font that declares it a “just” girly thing. They are impossibly stupid in their most basic and purest form, which means that they are perfect for parodying–which, of course, many people have done.
But the venue in which Just Girly Things parodies really thrive, I think, is relationships. So many of the genuine Just Girly Things have such specific assumptions about the people who will be reading them–that they will all be girls, they will all be straight, and they will all want to date a boy named “Brad” who wears plaid, plays at least one varsity sport, and is exactly five inches taller than them–that it is so easy to turn them on their head and make some pretty funny (and rude) memes about them. So, check out these Just Girly Things parodies that reveal, once and for all, what you REALLY want in a relationship:
