Why The Stereotypical Jersey Girl Sucks

Why The Stereotypical Jersey Girl Sucks

As a Jersey native and a female, I can honestly say that I’m not negatively biased against New Jersey. I love my state; I never want to leave it. There are few places in this country where you have the beach, city and mountains all within an hour’s driving distance, and even a mall located conveniently every fifteen miles down the road.

 I’m proud to be from New Jersey, but I’m more proud that my friends and I do not fit into the Jersey Girl stereotype – because the Jersey Girl ruins the reputation of my beloved state.

The stereotypical Jersey Girl is a father’s worst nightmare – what parents pray their daughter will never become.

She wears enough bronzer to ensure that her face is six shades darker than that of her neck and body, and she shops at the lowest of the low-end stores like Mandees and Joyce Leslie for any tight, breast bearing corset she can find. She fries her hair with heat damage and platinum blonde highlights and is rarely seen without a perfectly teased rat’s nest hairstyle.

At night, one may find a Jersey Girl outside of the clubs in low-income neighborhoods wearing a sports bra, booty shorts and chain-smoking Newports.

During the day, this girl could be found posing in front of Photo Booth on her MacBook and taking pictures of herself dramatically looking to the side while holding up her middle finger, which is so discreetly donned with a six inch acrylic nail. She then posts this picture to Facebook, and captions it with the raunchiest, most conceited rap lyric she can find, and always ends the quote with a wink emoticon.

In the summer, there’s no other place to spot a Jersey Girl than Seaside. A full face of makeup and a smokey eye is appropriate for the beach. When the sun goes down, wearing animal print is the outfit of choice for walking up and down the boardwalk on the prowl for her one night stand.

Jersey Girls are attracted to only men that overly wax their eyebrows, wear Ed Hardy and Affliction, use ¾ of a bottle of gel daily, blow kisses in pictures and still think that MTV’s The Jersey Shore is still relevant. The Jersey Girl’s boyfriend also does not care that their girlfriend has over 90 likes from different guys on a profile picture of her in a bikini.

Jersey Girls normally do not possess any significant life skills or intelligence, so they perform poorly in academics and are limited in professions. Most Jersey Girls find themselves as club promoters, “models” or makeup artists. Career choices are limited for people who replace their O’s with zeros in messages: “H3y, c0m3 0ut 2 the club t0n!!”

Jersey Girls think that yoga pants are a closet staple, perfectly acceptable to wear to any place or event. School, work, the bar, funerals, weddings – you name it and yoga pants are deemed acceptable. Jersey Girls pair their yoga pants with a tight, revealing top – fishnet is ideal – and fifteen dollar heels. Jewelry pulls the whole look together: a Jersey Girl would never go out without an eighteen inch long bedazzled cross necklace and hoop earrings.

If this girl doesn’t already seem appealing to you, strike up a conversation with her the next time you spot one. Her inability to pronounce words with more than four syllables, lack of awareness and aggressive “I-ain’t-afraid-to-fight-you-bitch” attitude will surely turn you on.

I blame Myspace and Jersey Shore for this travesty, and pray that one day this lapse in judgment goes unwritten from New Jersey’s history books. And please, everyone, stop with the stupid mirror pictures.

It’s Called Chivalry And You Either Have It Or You Don’t

I’m tired of women saying chivalry is dead, and I am even more tired of men saying chivalry is not dead (or it is, but women killed it). Chivalry is neither dead or alive. Chivalry is chivalry; you either have it or you don’t, and a woman’s “eligibility” for it is completely irrelevant. Is it practiced […]

They’re Not All Bad: The 5 Best Guys You’ll Date In College

I think we’re quick to nitpick and judge ourselves harshly for the guys we choose on the romantic front. Maybe we do it so we can beat our often judgmental friends and family to the punch. Maybe it’s a weird form of entertainment when our current love lives are sadly stagnant and uneventful. Maybe it’s […]

12 Special Qualities A Man Has That Mean You Should Never Let Him Go

Some men are better than others. Yes, we’re all equal human beings, but nevertheless one can easily make the argument that some men are better people than other men. An even easier argument to make is that some men are clearly better suited for being loving partners than others. Some men simply aren’t cut out […]

Dad And Daughter’s Dance Routine To ‘All About That Bass’ Is Beyond Epic (Video)

For all the time people spend b*tching and moaning about their parents, it seems like there’s nothing the Internet loves more than touching (or, sometimes, painfully and hilariously real) vignettes of families bonding. Josh Rinder, 29, and his 4-year-old daughter Audrey made a video of themselves dancing to Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.” As Time points […]
