Shit Girls Say is a single topic blog and a web series showcasing various cliches and verbal mannerisms that are commonly associated with teenage girls and young women. Since its YouTube debut in December 2011, the series has inspired dozens of parodies exploring social gender stereotypes using the phrasal template "Shit X says."

The Twitter account @ShitGirlsSay was launched by Toronto-based comics Graydon Sheppard and Kyle Humphrey on April 7th, 2011. In similar vein to its unaffiliated predecessors @ShitMyDadSays and @ShitThatSiriSays, the microblog quickly became notable for its caricaturization of an average, airheaded girl vaguely familiar to many others. According to the analytics data provided by Twitaholics, @ShitGirlsSay gained over 6,879 followers with its prolific output of 339 tweets in the first three months of launch.

The series was eventually introduced to a broader group of audience in December 2011, when Sheppard and Humphrey adapted the joke into a web video series via YouTube channel ShitGirlsSay. The pilot episode starring Sheppard as "the girl" and a cameo appearance by actress Juliette Lewis was posted on December 12th, 2011. Some of the most notable lines in the video included: "Listen to this e-mail," "Could you do me a huge favor?" and "I'm not even joking right now."

Upon release, the video clip was simultaneously picked up through social networking sites Twitter and Facebook as well as internet humor communities Reddit and 9gag, racking in over 4 million views in the first week of upload. The viral status of the first episode was soon covered by an array of influential blogs including Wired, The Onion and Huffington Post. In less than three weeks since its launch, YouTube channel ShitGirlsSay gained nearly 60,000 subscribers and over 11 million total upload views.

Notable Derivatives

Numerous parodies and spin-off versions of the original series quickly emerged within days of the pilot episode, many of them starring actors and actresses dressed as opposite genders they're portraying. The scope of the parodies also expanded across LGBT, ethnic and cultural stereotypes.
