9 Gross Things All Girls Do (But Love To Pretend They Don’t Do)

Since the dawn of civilization, people have put women up on a pedestal. They have named them goddesses, and have been the muse of many artists. Media has also had a part to play in how we view women. Placing idealistic expectations on them. Girls are expected to be perfect little beauty queens. However, there are many things girls do that they dare not to speak of. But, sorry ladies, we are here to set the record straight. After all, women are humans too.


Avoid washing their bras

Most women have a select amount of bras. That means they have only one or two favorites. Most days, girls want to look their best. So, that means wearing their best bra that holds their little, or not so little ladies nice and secure. All the while looking great. Even if they have the time, washing bras is time-consuming business deemed unworthy of a daily routine.

Girls also smell their pits

The things girls do to smell their own armpits are quite phenomenal. They will pretend to tie their shoelaces. And While they are crouched down, they’ll catch a whiff. Some girls like to suddenly combust into stretching, which is actually a strategic plan to give their pits a sniff. Why are women smelling their pits, you might ask. Men seem to love their stench, so do women love theirs too? Actually, it is a preventative measure. They are thinking of the next person who is brave enough to hug them.

DIY sanitary situations

All girls have been in these situations. The unexpected period that started a day too early, or got really heavy super quick. Sometimes tampons, pads, or moon cups are not readily available. In these cases, girls have resorted to just about anything absorbent, from rolled-up toilet paper, to tearing a sleeve off their T-shirt.

Ready, set, aim. Well for girls it might not be as easy to pee standing up, nor as fun. But, it sure is possible.

Yes, the toilet is too far to reach.
