This #WokeCharlotte Meme Puts A Progressive Spin On SATC

We love memes, and we especially love it when they can creatively educate people. During its heyday, Sex and The City definitely seemed fresh and modern, celebrating women's sexuality, ambition, and intellect. Despite this, the show did air fifteen years ago. That's an eternity as far as woke-ness is concerned, and re-watching the show brings some seriously problematic dialogue to light. 

Instagram account @everyoutfitonsatc is on a fun quest to correct the decidedly un-PC dialogue. The memes imagine Charlotte as an outspoken bastion of political wokeness. She strikes down worrisome quips about class, gender, and mental health in an informative an succinct manner. Frankly, #WokeCharlotte is a hero, and we can't wait to see more of these memes.

This Webcomic About Deal Breakers Is Getting Meme'd To Hell And Back

Everyone draws the line somewhere when it comes to dating. It could be someone's career, their table manners, but most often, deal breakers are political. A Thai web comic from November that addresses these political limits has recently gone viral on Reddit and Imgur. 

In the comic, a man decides to forego having sex with his date after seeing a photo of Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban on her dresser. Crafty internet users have decided to make the comic a little more universal, incorporating themes that range from Flat Earth Theory to the Distracted Boyfriend meme. We've rounded up the cream of the crop for your viewing pleasure.

Trump Incites Criticism After Calling Warren 'Pocahontas' At An Event Honoring Native Americans

Donald Trump is garnering criticism after making an insensitive joke earlier today at an event celebrating Navajo veterans. The President was making a speech honoring the WWII code talkers when he made a callous reference to his nickname for Senator Elizabeth Warren. "You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas."

The nickname is one that Trump has been using for years, but using it in this context adds an extra layer of ugliness to an already troubling moniker. The nickname is a reference to Warren's claims at Native American heritage, which have been heavily debated. Whether or not Warren is in fact Native American, this event was intended to honor war heroes - not to disparage other politicians. Many people on Twitter seem to agree.
