@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:
- Verizon and unions representing 39,000 workers have reached an agreement that should end the largest U.S. strike in since 2011.
- Never mind the $10 million: Donald Trump now says he won't debate "second place finisher" Bernie Sanders.
- No, France has not banned people from sending work emails after hours – no matter how much we all want to believe it 🇫🇷 ✉️
