As you can probably tell by a few of my previous posts, there’s nothing I like more than a snarky comeback or witty remark. Add in a little dose of idiot shaming to the mix, and put it all online where I can read it in my PJs on my couch at 1 am (ok, or at 1pm, don’t judge) and I’m a happy camper.
WhiteWhine came into my life at the perfect time. I’d graduated from StuffWhitePeopleLike, which was awesome, but some of the posts were just a little too close to home. I’m a white girl from the ‘burbs of the Midwest- that shit was getting a little too real (I love NPR, Okay!) I felt guilty. I needed someone to put me in my place. Enter WhiteWhine.
We’re all familiar with White Whines- they’re first world problems. Think…”My daddy took my Lexus keys away because I wouldn’t load the dishwasher”, or “My Starbucks extra-hot latte was too hot; why do they let the plebeians make the coffee!?!” Basically, anything you’ve thought to yourself, and then immediately hated yourself for even thinking. Streeter Seidell (the genius behind WhiteWhine) took them from every corner of the internet, and put them all in one place to be judged. And judged they are.
Here are a few of my favorites:
