#1: Why do you wear so much makeup?
Followed with ‘you look better without it’ or ‘I like your natural face better’—as if we spent all that money to impress someone who couldn't tell their reds from maroons.
Reaction: For the same reason that you wear that much hair gel!
#2: I’m letting you go because you’re a girl
Imagine that being said in Hindi for the exact impact…now you get what we mean? About time someone gave their egos a few much needed bruises.
Reaction: Is that the best excuse you can come up with for being chicken?
#3: You could lose some weight
This is still a sensitive subject for a lot of girls because #bodyshaming is legit. Don't let it get to you though for if your size matters, so does his…you know.
Reaction: Remember when I asked for your opinion? Me neither.
#4: Why do you wear so much black?
All black can come off as quite intimidating for the flimsy kind. Probably why it bothers them so much for they're too used to seeing dainty florals on skater skirts.
Reaction: Oh, just channeling my inner Morticia Addams…everyday!
#5: Who gave you your driving license?
The hilarious jokes (not!) on women being bad drivers are so stale, someone had to shut those pie holes! Well, this comeback ought to do it. For good.
Reaction: The same RTO guy who gave you yours.
#6: This isn’t your thing, you will lose
Usually said in context with playing cricket, football and well, sports in general. As if they were meant to be gender specific. Put some sense into them please.
Reaction: You mean you will lose?
#7: Wow, you swear way too much for a girl
Again, didn't know swearing was gender specific too. Did mom say it was okay for boys to use ‘bad words’ and not girls? Seriously, what's even your point?
Reaction: And you’re keeping a tab because…?
#8: When did you become so smart?
Classic case of showing someone down because they ended up outsmarting you, and you just happen to be terrible at witty comebacks. Well, try harder okay.
Reaction: The same day you became this dumb.
#9: You can get away with it because you’re a girl
So being a girl is a good thing then. We can do things you can and even things you can't. Who's the winner now? Seriously, find yourself a better ego boost.
Reaction: Too bad you can’t!
#10: Is it that time of the month again?
Period jokes. Haha. Let's cut her some slack. Aunt Flo’s come to town. Well, tell ya what, Aunt Flo told me she also comes visit you sometimes when you throw those tantrums. Oops!
Reaction: Not yet. Is it for you?
