Vietnamese teacher talks about the seven types of Vancouver girls

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      What? Only seven types?

      Here's local YouTube comedian Linda Dong's sendup of local stereotypes of Vancouver girls according to neighbourhoods. 

      Unfortunately she forgot Shaughnessy Girl, Robson Girl, Wreck Beach Girl, West End Girls (the girl group), Visiting ESL Student Girl, Taiko Girl, Smelly Hair SkyTrain Girl, and the suburbs: West Vancouver Girl (well, Real Housewives of Vancouver ostensibly covered that), North Shore Adventure Girl, Richmond Girl, and...(I'm Not a) Surrey Girl.

      Maybe more material for future episodes?

      (Then again, maybe the next one can be types of Vancouver guys?)

      It's mildly amusing but how accurate do you think it is?

      It's super funny because all Vancouver ladies are high maintenance, have long hair with waves, and do nothing but shop and eat. Sterotyping women is so funny. Thanks for providing a shopping list of women to these men in your video. Super original concept by the way!!!

      Enjoyed it. Now do a bit on Vanc. Island girls. Victoria girl, UVic girl, Duncan girl, Nanaimo girl, Port Alberni girl, Tofino girl, Cumberland girl, Campbell River girl, Pt. Hardy girl. Wow.

      Oh great! My day's been lacking in reductionist sexist stereotypes! Remember kids, if you don't employ reductive stereotypes against women often enough, someone may someday take them seriously, and we can't have that, now can we? Yet, if we do it often enough, they even take on doing it to themselves!
      I'm just trying to figure out why the Straight decided it needed a few thousand more hits. Pretty sure you can do better.

      Oh clam the fuck down Erika. This is hilarious. I checked out her YouTube Channel. She's making great Vancouver comedy from a young woman's point of view. I love it.
