    35 Times You Realized The "Sex And The City" Women Were Terrible Role Models

    Which, to be fair, was like 95% of the time.

    1. When Charlotte revealed the drawbacks of spending an evening at a man's home:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via thingsilearnedfromsatc.tumblr.com

    OMG, just poop! #feminism

    2. When Samantha pointed out a flaw that just can't be fixed.

    Just stay friends. Nothing good will come of this.

    3. When Miranda, while on the phone with a close friend while sitting on a couch in a studio apartment in NYC, decided it's ok to vent:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via anjicacar.tumblr.com

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    4. That time Carrie chose a magazine over food:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via girlfrommath.tumblr.com

    1.) plz eat food 2.) if you're going to starve yourself for a fashion magazine, at least pick something like Allure or Lucky (Vogue is, like, ALL pictures.) 3.) plz eat some pizza Carrie plz

    5. When Carrie professed her feelings via drunk phone call.

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via glupiiiii.tumblr.com

    We've all been there. Now let's never go back.

    6. When Carrie made the most obnoxious drive-thru order in the world:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via gifs-from-the-seaside-ca.tumblr.com

    7. When Samantha suggested having intentional hate sex:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via wow-thats-so-dope-x.tumblr.com

    Except you'll probably feel awful in the morning :(

    8. When Samantha broke it off with a perfect guy because:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via esasviejas.tumblr.com

    Is there no compromise, really?

    9. When Carrie thought that physically ducking from a computer would help her avoid a guy online.

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via obfuscatress.tumblr.com

    Giiirrrl.

    10. When Carrie put pressure on Big to tell her that she was his soulmate.

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via luisinhaalourenco.tumblr.com

    If he likes you, you'll know. You'll just know.

    11. When Samantha made clear her skewed priorities in life:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via letsmakeoha.tumblr.com

    It's definitely up there, but the best? Better than food? Nope.

    12. When Samantha actively tried to upstage a baby shower:

    HBO/Sex and the City

    HBO/Sex and the City

    Baby showers are never competition to begin with.

    13. When Carrie thought that her best friend was alcohol:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via minhacisma.tumblr.com

    But you have at least three great human friends (four, if you count Stanford)!

    14. When Carrie based part of her decision to move to Paris on this flawed logic:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via fluviatili.tumblr.com

    ...

    15. When Carrie asked this on a first date with Mr. Big:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via kjpi69.tumblr.com

    A tad dramatic, no?

    16. When Samantha jumped to hasty conclusions:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via anjicacar.tumblr.com

    She ended up being 100% right, but how awkward would it be if Richard was actually a good guy?

    17. When Carrie brushed off her anger with Big as just "being herself":

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via mrsmontmartre.tumblr.com

    Just talk it out.

    18. When Samantha addressed herself as such:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via iluwit.tumblr.com

    Ego, much?

    19. When Carrie added her own "twist" to a fairytale

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via omgbitchbelike.tumblr.com

    And subsequently scarred Charlotte's kid for life.

    20. When Carrie equated singledom with wisdom:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via minhacisma.tumblr.com

    Because the best way to get good at something is never doing it!

    21. When Samantha did this:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via bbc--hot--babes.tumblr.com

    California roll nipples = not cute

    22. When Carrie said this dumb thing:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via elenkann.tumblr.com

    And they guy still went out with you and yelled at your window when you rejected him?

    23. When Carrie expressed her very ageist views:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via singfromthehair.tumblr.com

    Let's just live like we're in our 30s all the time and spare ourselves heartaches AND costly drinks!

    24. When Samantha assured us that sex fixes all problems:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via sexandthecityv.tumblr.com

    It's actually usually the reverse.

    25. When this was considered to be healthy:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via teenageperspectivex.tumblr.com

    The shade of it all.

    26. When Carrie proposed some interesting possibilities for spending the day:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via maketheillusionlast.tumblr.com

    Such a drama queen!

    27. When the girls embraced mystery weed like it was NBD:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via timeinsiberia.tumblr.com

    Yeah, Carrie just broke up with Berger and desperately needed it, but still.

    28. When Charlotte believed finding true love has a time limit:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via sexandthecityv.tumblr.com

    "Exhausted" is probably not the right word.

    29. When Miranda dubbed dildos as unacceptable party favors:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via pussypinklipstick.tumblr.com

    Always be grateful, but especially if gifted with free sex toys.

    30. When Samantha wanted to be Ernest Hemingway:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via beadamnlady.tumblr.com

    Minus the writing part.

    31. When Carrie nonchalantly shrugged off therapy:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via kristiih.tumblr.com

    Everyone should go at least once!

    32. Miranda's bizarro views on cunnilingus:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via monstration.tumblr.com

    Unless the oral sex leads to other temptations aka just get a vibrator!

    33. Carrie's disinterest in labeling her relationship with Big:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via themilliondollababy.tumblr.com

    Uh, you should probably define it somehow.

    34. When Samantha wanted to roll with a new crew:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via layalouise.tumblr.com

    Uhhh...

    35. And when Samantha did this:

    HBO/Sex and the City / Via rawwr-meow.tumblr.com

    Of course, sometimes they had their moments of wisdom:
