“Sometimes I get this annoying feeling, ‘Is this just happening because I’m a woman?’ And usually I’m right, at least when it’s related to periods or forgetting to smile. Also, apparently, it’s not right for a woman to talk about her beer-induced diarrhea.

The other day a girl reached out to me on Snapchat and gave me some advice: ‘Women should not make poop jokes,’ she said. Like most advice I ignored it and proceeded to inform my Snapchat followers of the risks of doing poopy while still having a tampon in your vagina.

Women were denied the right to take part in politics, airplane flying and doctoring throughout the years but that’s slowly changing. Women are rising up through feminism to take over the world and kill every single man on earth. Thereby ending world hunger. We need to be fighting to have access to every conversation. The poopy ones included.

I like poop jokes because almost everyone can relate to them (except politicians). We all have the need to poop and sometimes it’s fun and sometimes it’s not. We all have poop stories and it’s important to hear them from all points of view: Men’s, women’s, minorities’. Do we all poop the same? I’m not sure. Let’s find out.”
