I actually remember the dumbest thing someone ever said to me, and how it kind of stunned me into silence for a good thirty seconds. There’s no way to respond to some comments, truly, that isn’t incredulous or flat-out rude.
Me? I just nodded and smiled.
Please give me an example of something someone said to you that was so astonishingly stupid that you can never forget it.

These people have some pretty amazingly terrible stories of their own, and thankfully, someone thought to ask for them on Twitter.
Yay for us!
15. I promise her credentials are better than yours.
A man actually arguing with me when I told him no, women don't pee out of their vaginas. At one point he demanded to know why I thought I was such an expert… ????♀️ https://t.co/BXAzU2xIsN

14. That’s not going to work out in her favor.
“i have a really good immune system so i won’t get pregnant” https://t.co/CRURfstCRN

13. That’s not something you forget.
Someone once asked me if having blue eyes means I see everything tinted blue. I think of it at least monthly, 25 years later.

12. Just keep digging that hole deeper.
Me: Check out these quail eggs
Relative: Sooooo cute. But I never realised whales had eggs
Relative: And to think something so big comes from something so small
Me: Stop talking now.

11. I need to hear the reasoning behind this.

10. I’m guessing this happens a lot.
The amount of men I’ve met who think an animal is female because it has nipples and are then shocked when I point out that they too have nipples ????

9. I literally have no comment.
Someone on twitter said that regular menstruation is a sign that your body is full of toxins because the purpose of menstruation is to purge poison and toxins from your body. So if you eat well and don’t consume (insert nonsense here) you shouldn’t have a period. https://t.co/b9J9J9btnA

8. I would have struggled not to slap this person.
I was told not to breastfeed my future daughters because it would turn them gay https://t.co/oWBjZD0Yjl

7. He picked the wrong lady.
This male started lecturing me about how women's vocal chords were genetically inferior to male vocal chords because women's voices are higher. I study vocal anatomy. He didn't even know what a larynx is.

6. It’s literally his name.

5. Well, that proves it then.
My uni housemate:

4. Why didn’t we think of that?

3. Oddly enough, it’s possible.

2. Yeahhhhhh that’s not how science works.
I was at the San Diego Zoo at the okapi exhibit and some lady got really mad and started loudly musing to me that this world famous zoo was crap because they “allowed” the zebra and giraffe to get together and “create -this- abomination”. https://t.co/PAv3AJveQN

1. Pretty sure Canadians would take issue with this comment.
Someone once asked me if Canada used different money from America and when I said yes, he said, "Why? It's not like it's a different country."

Mine was an actress – I complimented her on her ability to play two characters on a single show, saying that I could always tell which character she was playing when she came onscreen, even before she spoke.
Her reply, with a furrowed brow: “Do you mean right now?”
We were in an interview setting, soooooo. Yeah.
What’s your story? I know you have one!
