The ‘men are trash’ meme is probably the only good thing to come out of 2017
Good morning, men are trash
by Amanda Ross
Look, it hasn't been a very good week for women. As it happens, we can't get abortions. We can't even get birth control to prevent us from having abortions. Men who we thought were allies mocked us to white nationalists behind our backs, America's creepy uncle finally had his myriad misdeed exposed to the world, and Nelly was arrested for rape.
So I'm sorry if we sound Angry Online, but we tweet "Men are trash!" en mass, know that it's not just a meme — we really mean it.
If we have to wade through rape threats in our DMs and Uber drivers who trap us inside their vehicles until we give them our numbers, at least let us complain about it on the TL.
It's actually not a very funny situation, but this is what women do. We turn something uncomfortable and scary and life-threatening into something funny for the culture. Maybe it's a defense mechanism, maybe it's defiance. Either way, it's meme gold:
Your honor, I present Exhibit A:
It's me, I'm your WCW
Ya WCW can't wait for Twitter to drop the 240 characters just so she can tweet "men are trash" a couple more times.

Twitter: "Here's 280 characters"
Her: "MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH! MEN ARE TRASH!"
