Adulthood is hard.

Take a little time out for you this weekend. Make a cup of herbal tea and get cozy. You’re about to see the best oh-so-relatable tweets of this week!

5. A double standard
When people tell women to remove their photos from social media if they don’t want to get hit on or harassed, they’re really just telling them to make themselves invisible in order to be treated with respect. Why can’t we exist on social media the same way men do? *rhetorical*

6. Adulting. Is. Hard.
Adulthood is just being on the verge of another mental breakdown and constantly being reminded that people are a fucking disappointment.

10. You deserve the hottest member of the boy band
I write for all the girls whose internalized self disgust formed so early we only allowed ourselves to have crushes on, at most, the third-hottest guy in any given boy band.

11. Pickup trucks
I’m dressed sort of butch today and a guy in a pickup truck just rolled down his window and yelled “go lgbt! my son is gay!” then almost crashed his car and I gotta tell you it was like the best interaction I’ve ever had with a guy in a pickup truck
