@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:
- Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, was killed with a chemical weapon last week at an airport in Malaysia.
- Caitlyn Jenner told President Trump his administration's rollback of protections for transgender kids was a "disaster" 😳
- Uber's CEO met with more than 100 female engineers on Thursday to discuss sexism and harassment allegations at the company.
- Beyoncé is backing out of Coachella under doctors' advice. But she plans to headline the festival again in 2018 😭🐝
