Being that I’m a woman *checks crotch – yup – still an innie* I like seeing other women getting the recognition they deserve. I’m all for Girl Power and all that shit, but I also don’t think tit-for-tat has a place in regular everyday life.
I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. It’s my gift to the world.
That and my sunshiney personality.
I tend not to notice when women are overshadowed by male counterparts when listed in some kind of arbitrary popular culture list of bests. So when I take note of a lack of vagina-blessed people on a list where I know they should be, it must be a pretty egregious void.
Take those people at someecards’ blog o’ hilarity, Happy Place, for example. I love those bastards! someecards are the shit, yo! And Happy Place has a warm place in my heart, what with all of the happiness they share around their blogging place. I follow their happy Twitter, and I am a fan of their Happy Facebook page.
They like to compile lists of funny stuff found online; I love to read lists of funny stuff found online. It’s a match made in digital heaven.
Except, they seem to miss out on some really funny broads.
Seeing as I’m very scientific in my research, I noticed that their last two 25 Funniest Tweets From The Debate posts consisted of primarily men. Again, normally I wouldn’t have noticed the off-balance representation of estrogen-laden humorists, but the balance was so far off, I couldn’t help but notice.
This is serious stuff, people. Only 2 out of the 25 listed “Funniest Tweets” from the third (and thank GOD FINAL) Presidential debate are from women. From the Vice Presidential debate, only 4 out of 25 “Funniest Tweets” are by women.
I will note that the list of hilarious tweets from second Presidential debate was nearly even in its coverage of man/woman tweets with a whopping 9 out of 25 “Funniest Tweets” attributed to women.
I’m no anthropological scholar, nor do I claim to be smarter than the average 5th grader. But methinks the Happy Place editors should follow more ladies, because SHIIIIIIIT, there be some funny bitches out there.
I present to you 10 of the funniest tweets from last night’s Presidential debate twittered by women (or at least who claim to be penis-less)!
(P.S. If you didn’t already know @PaulRyanGosling is the brainchild of some of my blogging lady friends from The Mouthy Housewives.)

Republicans and Democrats disagree on just about everything, but I think we can all agree Ann Coulter is a giant cuntdonkey.

With that, I’m taking off my shoes, going back into the kitchen, and getting pregnant.
