@CTgirlproblems is a twitter stream with over 20,000 followers run by an anonymous person who either loves to perpetuate awful stereotypes — or is an awful stereotype themself. The feed consists of the kind of musings you might expect from the account: on weather, clothes, wealth, brands, and Starbucks. But what it also includes are a smattering of derogatory comments about people who aren’t wealthy, people who aren’t Christian, and bizarre justifications for knowing nothing but white, suburban culture.
To me, someone who grew up in the state and still visits family there frequently, it is disgusting — but you can judge for yourself by looking at a sampling of tweets:
- President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump had their first dance to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" at an inaugural ball 🇺🇸
- As one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump announced the end of certain Obama administration climate and pollution rules.
- Over 200 people were arrested as anti-Trump protesters and police clashed in Washington, DC, during the inauguration.
- Flights around the country are packed with pink as people stream into Washington, DC, for the Women's March, happening the day after Donald Trump's inauguration 👩❤️👩
