It seems our recall on the word “girlfriend” to describe platonic friendships between women has been largely ignored by the straight community, and nowhere was this more apparent than on Twitter yesterday for #NationalGirlfriendDay. The recall was pretty straightforward and they’ve had an entire year to claim their rebate, and also you don’t see us trying to co-opt Galentine’s Day, but, okay, I guess go ahead and log onto Twitter to align this with Girls’ Night Out.
Except, don’t, and clearly we need a refresher on the topic, so, lets’ talk about Who Got National Girlfriend Day right (or wrong) on Twitter:
— W Magazine (@wmag) August 1, 2017
Wrong. The accompanying picture that zeros in on Gigi Hadid embracing Kendall Jenner’s midsection is a slap in the face, and not in a good way.
— DVD Netflix (@dvdnetflix) August 1, 2017
This is not a link to Carol in a queue 60 times. Wrong.
— Kettlemans Bagel (@bagelottawa) August 1, 2017
No one takes anyone out for some “bagels tonight”, so this is a reach on top of being wrong.
Scarlett’s making that face because: wrong.
Correct! Good for Molly Priddy. We wish her the best of luck with Mary Louise Parker.

*looks up from what I was doing and lowers my readers to the bottom of my nose to look at LaCroix not in a mean way but also not in a good way*

— MovieTickets.com (@MovieTickets) August 1, 2017
Don’t you dare bring Girls Trip into this. Wrong.

Rachel Zoe, surprising no one: wrong.
— e. browning (@weekendwithe) August 1, 2017
What? No. Wrong.
— JustJared.com (@JustJared) August 4, 2016
No, she doesn’t and didn’t. Wrong.
— Art Canada Institute (@artcaninstitute) August 1, 2017
Is nothing sacred? Wrong.
— Jill Marie Jones (@MsJillMJones) August 1, 2017
The cast of the TV show Girlfriends posting about National Girlfriend Day: we’ll allow it!
— Little Mix (@LittleMix) August 1, 2017
No, WE toss pillows around on the bed at night as sex. That’s what we do. Not you, Little Mix! Wrong.
— Kate Walsh (@katewalsh) August 1, 2017
Unless this is Dinah Shore and Kate Walsh and Angela from The Office who are draped over each other on a float have some news for us: wrong.
— WarnerArchiveInstant (@WarnerArchInst) August 1, 2017
NOT ON YOUR LIFE, YAHOO, YOU LEAVE THE SUGARBAKERS OUT OF YOUR MOUTH. WRONG!
