This Hilarious Twitter Thread Is Roasting The Way Male Authors Describe Women

Thank you, Literary Twitter for starting our new favorite hashtag challenge. The fun stems from the #OwnVoices hashtag, which addresses the voices of marginalized communities. The hashtag naturally had its critcs; among them was a male author that insisted he was living proof that men are capable of penning realistic female characters. After Gwen C. Katz  shared some super-cringey passages of his proof, the challenge was born. 

Women on Twitter quickly began parodying the passages, describing their most coveted features in hilarious and painfully flowery fashion. Many of these tweets show greater writing chops than we've seen in some books. While the fetishization of female characters is certainly getting old, we could read these farcical tweets all day.

More Of Your Favorite Pop Songs Re-Imagined As Sonnets

Ask and you shall receive. Our last collection of sonnets from Pop Sonnets was a huge hit, so we're back with more geeky Shakespearean goodness. This iambic pentameter is off the chain.

An SNL Writer Is Replying To Trump's Tweets Like They're Texts And It's Hilarious

SNL writer Josh Patten is trolling the President hard. The writer and comedian announced his new project "Responding To Trump Tweets Like They Were Texts" on July 16th, and we can't get enough of it. Patten's "text" responses are brief and colloquial, providing contrast that helps highlight just how over the top and exclamatory the President's tweets can be. Patten has declined to comment on the project, but we're definitely hoping to see more of these "text exchanges" in the future.
