20 Completely Justifiable Reasons to Break up with Your Boyfriend During Women’s History Month “Happy Women’s History Month, babe! We’re done.” By Ariel Wodarcyk | Published Mar 6, 2020 8:33 PM Relationships No, bro, crying is not, in fact, “gay.” Also, love is love and gender is a social construct. Ciao. Getty Images SHARE In honor of Women’s History Month make your feminist forebearers proud by breaking up with your boyfriend. Whether you’ve been in a committed relationship for years, or you recently had to twist his arm to even get him to say the word “exclusive,” March is the perfect time to say, “See ya!” to someone who’s not giving you what you deserve. Here are 20 totally sensible reasons for you to dump him. Getty ImagesYou text constantly, you sleep over at each other’s houses every night, you’ve told your families about one another and have met each other’s friends…but he still refuses to define the relationship. Breaking up with him now is a major act of feminist resistance. Getty ImagesPet names are so infantilizing. Getty ImagesClearly, he doesn’t believe in words of affirmation. Getty ImagesRemember that one time when he asked you how your day was and after you sent five paragraphs explaining how hard it is being choked by society’s stifling expectations of women and he wrote back with “lol” a full hour later? Getty ImagesHe, like, totally gets feminism—he’s just not into labels. (Is this the same guy who won’t call himself your boyfriend?) Getty ImagesWe get it, dude. You went to the Women’s March, you wore a pink hat with kitty ears and the majority of your wardrobe is novelty T-shirts from woman-owned Etsy shops. We appreciate the support. Now can we just watch “Love is Blind” and relax? Getty ImagesThe Venn diagram between “people who FaceTime without asking first” and “sociopaths” is just a filled in circle. Getty ImagesYes, practice makes perfect. But by the second or third (or fourth…) anatomy lesson you have to give him, it’s time to stock up on AAA batteries and say sayonara. Getty ImagesTell him to get off the Internet and stop being a creep. Then maybe tell him to get out of your life too. Getty ImagesYou just spent an hour explaining to him how white feminists on Twitter misuse the word “intersectionality,” and he has the gall to politely interrupt and go use the bathroom? It’s like he has no conscience. Getty ImagesPolo shirts make all men look like either a yuppy on a golf course or a fifth-grader getting ready for school picture day. Goodbye to all that! Getty ImagesEvery time you ask, he just says, “Babe, we’ve been together five years. Why do you need to know my love language now?” If he won’t tell you his, best believe he won’t care about yours. Getty ImagesHe made you a playlist with a concerning number of Dave Matthews Band songs, and now you’re worried he’s going to join a jam band. Break up with him now—before you have to go to his gigs. Getty ImagesWhat does he need all those pockets for anyway? It’s not like he’ll carry your phone or keys for you. You still have to lug around a purse, while he looks like a dork. Getty ImagesThose green texts are just so hideous. And you can’t even see when he’s writing you back. Getty ImagesHas he ever talked at you for so long, you resorted to actually doing kegels out of boredom? That’s a surefire sign he’s not the one. Getty ImagesThere’s a reason he isn’t dating someone his own age…and it’s called arrested development. You’ll grow up, but he never will. Getty ImagesNo, bro, crying is not, in fact, “gay.” Also, love is love and gender is a social construct. Ciao. Getty ImagesHe should know by now that the family-size packs of Twizzlers and Hot Cheetos you keep in your cupboards are yours and yours alone. Getty ImagesIf Co-Star says it’s not love, kick him to the curb.
