About

Good Girl Gina is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a smiling girl and various captions portraying the subject as a considerate and sometimes overly compliant girlfriend. The character can be seen as the anthesis of Scumbag Stacy.

Origin

On December 19th, 2011, Redditor elbuencharlie submitted an image macro featuring a photo of a dark-haired bartender in a post titled “Good Girl Gina,”[8] but it went virtually unnoticed with 28 downvotes and 0 points. On the following day, Redditor karmadogma submitted a post titled “Introducing Good Girl Gina”[7] to /r/AdviceAnimals with an image macro featuring a photo of a smiling brunette woman and the caption reading “Uses your bathroom / Puts seat up when she’s done.” The post earned 30 upvotes and 4 points.



While the name of the model[14] is currently unknown, the original image was photographed by Jacob Yuri Wackerhausen[6] and posted to iStockPhoto[5] on March 27th, 2009.

Spread

One of the first Good Girl Gina image macros to make the front page on Reddit was submitted on January 30th, 2012[11] (shown below) with the caption “Wears a t-shirt at the beach / So overweight friend isn’t the only one.” The post earned 5203 upvotes and 871 overall points. In July 2012, the single topic blog GoodGirlGina.com[2] was established to showcase notable instances of the series, but ceased posting in September 2012. Also in July, a Twitter account[12] was launched to curate various captions featured in Good Girl Gina image macros, but it has not been updated since August.



As of November 2012, there are more than 670 instances of Good Girl Gina on the /r/adviceanimals subreddit and additional instances can be found on Tumblr[3], FunnyJunk[13] and Instagram.[10] A Facebook fan page[4] for the image macro series has more than 2300 likes and there are nearly 2000 submissions on Quickmeme.[1]

Sexism

As early as January 2012, Redditors began submitting other advice animal image macros with commentaries on Good Girl Gina as way to critique its overtly sexual and misogynistic undertone. It has also been compared to Good Guy Greg, who is normally depicted as kind and generous to all people.



On November 27th, 2012, Reddtior LaTeX_fetish[15] posted his survey of the 1390 Good Girl Gina image macros that were submitted to Quickmeme between the page’s creation date and September 27th, 2012, in an attempt to identify the primary traits that make Gina a “good” girl. The findings of the study revealed that 443 of the instances contained messages of sexualization or objectification, with the rest of captions pertaining to other male-centric ideals such as openness to oral and anal sex, availability for sex, embracement of female stereotypes, preparing food and “not rocking the boat” by steering clear of controversial or typically mundane activities. The study was featured on the Daily Dot[16] the following day.



AMA Identity Reveal

On October 2nd, 2013, Emma Katherine, who revealed herself to be Good Girl Gina, hosted a Reddit[17]ask me anything. As of April 2014, the thread has over 13,000 upvotes. She also revealed the source of the photo during the AMA, explaining:

“The picture came from Yuri Arcurs Photography, where I was a model when I was 16. About two years after I guess.
