Producer Ross Putman has started a new Twitter account, @femscriptintros, that features introductions for the female leads in scripts he’s actually read. Putman changes the name of the female leads to Jane, but otherwise, he states that everything else is verbatim.

Really, these tweets have definitely opened up some serious questions for us ladies: For example, I now wonder why I don’t casually jump naked on my bed as well. Is something has been missing from my femininity as a result?
