Women Are Pouring Manohar Parrikar A Tall Glass Of Strong Sass With #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer

Words uttered from one’s mouth are like arrows shot from a bow; there’s no taking them back once they’re out. If that’s the case, then Goa CM Manohar Parrikar’s words, quite specifically the ones that stated he’s worried about girls who’ve started drinking beer these days, are arrows that have hit a beehive. And you know what happens when you disturb a beehive right? You’ve gotta be ready for the sting! And since we’re all about  Digital India, this particular sting’s got its very own hashtag too: #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer

It all started when a journalist, aiming to start a movement akin to #MeToo, tweeted a ‘nice’ little letter to Mr. Parrikar.

Women and girls, celebrities and regular folk, boys and even men alike contributed to this hashtag in a show of solidarity!

Now tell me, how could Twitter resist this promising invite ha? Project #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer was full steam ahead!

1. Oh yes, break it to him gently, please!

2. Many women shared pictures of themselves enjoying a cold one, or some other alcoholic drink, with their own ‘sweet’ message for the worried Goa CM.

Cheers to the spiritually guided!

 Excellent advice, if I may say so!

All those uncles!

2. Amongst them was a poet, and here’s how I know it!

3. Hawwwww!

4. Some women even shared pictures of them drinking beer with their dads!

Hey Mr. Parrikar, dad’s not looking ‘worried’ now, is he?

Cheers, Pops!

And then, there was this father…!

5. A couple of ladies managed a nice dig at not just Parrikar’s remark but also the whole Renuka Chowdhury—PM Modi Ramayana war!

6. Age no bar for a drink at the bar!

7. The best thing was when teetotalers joined in and supported the cause!

Just chill no? With a beer, perhaps!

8. Apparently, while women were saying #MeToo to drinking beer, #NotAllMen were as worried as CM Manhoar Parrikar. In fact, they were in full support!

Aisa kya?

Whiskey lovers, assemble!

Touché, Vishal Dadlani! Hitting the right notes!

9. Just author Devdutt Pattanaik, giving a cool history lesson to everyone with issues!

#GirlsWhoDrinkBeer: Still awesome then, still awesome now!

10. And finally, the most epic argument in support of #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer was this:

*mic drop*

I suppose this then must be true!

As a girl who drinks beer herself, and wine, and a lot of other spirits, I would like to ask this:

#GirlsWhoDrinkBeer might be a little tipsy and say something nonsensical. What’s our politicians’ excuse?
