Shit Nerds Say

This video was probably in response to the Shit Girls Say.

The Huffington Post's has this interesting opinion piece about it:

[...] it's also worth asking whether the creators of the meme are being unfair to women or if the way women speak really is ridiculous and something we should we worried about. On the one hand, a lot of the tweets that ring true also express insecurity or at least a need for reassurance -- "Am I hungry?" "Did you miss me?" "Was I super annoying last night?" This seems potentially problematic for women who want to be in control of their careers and relationships.

But just as many of these phrases just sound like things certain people are more likely to say -- almost like a dialect, and no more wrong or right than "pop" vs. "soda" and "y'all." This makes me think that the problem isn't women themselves, and that the fascination with how poorly women speak comes from some ambivalence -- external or among women themselves -- about their ascent in the world.
