Here’s another meme that was technically created before 2012 but reached online fever pitch in the last 12 months. Good Girl Gina is a spinoff of the Good Guy Greg meme, a macro depicting a man smoking a joint whose actions are selfless and beneficial to others.
But whereas Greg’s goodness stems from how considerate he is, Gina’s stems from what Reddit user LaTex calls “her capacity to serve men.”
“A Good Girl is an object to be lusted after,” wrote LaTex in a lengthy post published on r/ShitRedditSays, a subsection of the site that often calls out fellow redditors on their sexism and racism.
“A Good Girl makes sure you’re sexually satisfied, either by her or someone else. A Good Girl defies stereotypes, unless they play into your desires, like when she cooks for you. A Good Girl plays your video games and watches your movies, and she’ll bring you food and drinks and drugs, but a Good Girl won’t talk about any of those things, because she is a Good Girl. And a Good Girl keeps quiet and doesn’t rock the boat.”
