2018 was A Year, right? We were put through the wringer in every possible way with an absolutely exhausting president and all the men who enable him and the #MeToo movement making news pretty much every week. It’s hard to live life as a woman, but luckily, the funny feminists of Twitter have made it not just bearable, but hilarious.
Can 2019 be the year we stop saying “sorry” for literally everything?

Woman: *Apologizes to a chair for bumping into it."

Or the year we just champion all women, no matter what.
I drafted a 5 tweet thread in defense of the kardashians as legitimate businesswomen who deserve as much respect as any of the other soulless monsters thriving in this fucked up capitalistic society and how the real issue is with women having power but I’m gonna just go to bed

Maybe the next half of the year will be full of not giving a single shit about crying or yelling in front of anyone.
♪ You better watch out! You better not cry! You better not pout! I'm telling you why: emotions scare the fuck out of duuudes ♪

And holding men to the exact same confines we’ve lived in since the dawn of time? Perhaps?

Or maybe we can just live out our greatest fantasies.
And finally live our truth.
Me, to myself: Okay, just be cool, don't say anything weird
Any woman: *says something that makes me laugh*
Me, out loud: THAT'S HILARIOUS WE SHOULD BE SISTER WIVES BUT WITHOUT THE HUSBAND

Maybe men could even begin to understand what’s actually happening.
I love when women are having the I Won’t Take My Husband’s Name Because I Already Have My Own Name conversation & a dude pops in with “but you’ve already taken a MAN’S last name from your dad” and like how clever of you to notice that, yes, the patriarchy is literally everywhere

Or at least shut up while we express ourselves.

I assume the same, TBH.
When someone says "women like you" to me, I assume they're referring to extremely powerful wizards.

Oh here’s a handy guide to give to every man you know.
I have made a handy flowchart, for all the men who claim "I don't know what to say to women anymore!!! How do you compliment women nowadays??!!" I am here to help you! Here is how you compliment a woman: pic.twitter.com/RW98Q09Dke

And here’s a fun new mantra — impress grandma, fuck men.
LOL, we see what you did there.
Why did the mansplainer drown in the puddle? It was a well, actually.

2019 is the year of no fucks given.
Doing my makeup on the train this morning and a random man told me he likes women to have a more natural look. I told him I like men to have a more silent look. 🤷♀️

It’s the year of calling everyone out on their bullshit.
Men: seriously why do you need such a big bag?????
Also men: can I put this in your bag

And asking the tough questions.
If men are so tough then why do they die

We will expect more, no matter how ridiculous.

Even though our wants and needs may seem outlandish…
WOMAN: studies, grinds, toils, climbs little by little, is passed over time and again, puts in dues, becomes expert in her field, finally reaches career goal after years of busting ass
MAN: [shows up, possibly even by accident] job, yes?
OTHER MAN: yes, job
MEN: [high 5]

…we will still keep the dream alive.
My feminist dream is to one day not be surprised when an item of clothing I’ve bought has pockets.

Here’s to 2019 being feminist AF.
