About

Girl Explaining, also known as Girl Explaining To Guy or simply Bro Girl, is a photo of an Argentinian woman named Denise "Dinu" Sanchez at a 2018 concert appearing to loudly talk or screaming to her boyfriend with a blank expression while wrapping one arm around him and gesturing off towards the distance in the direction of the camera. The reaction image appeared in early 2019 in Spanish-speaking meme circles and is typically used to circulate female-themed versions of the Bro Explaining meme with the genders swapped.

Origin

The first instance of the picture online was with it already in the form of a meme, posted by Twitter user @LejosEnBerlin in a now-deleted tweet[1] on February 4th, 2019, with the Spanish caption roughly translating to the girl talking to the man as if he was gay, expressing her dissatisfaction at the information and accosting him further, receiving over 40 likes in over three years (shown below).


-No puedo creer que seas gay qué desperdicio, me queda bien esto que me puse o me hace gorda? Mi mejor amigo es gay se llama Matías lo conoces? ALL

According to Argentinian resident Denise Sanchez (the girl from the meme) in multiple statements given to GotFunnyPictures in August 2022, the photo was originally of the group of people in front of her and her boyfriend, with the two only becoming the focus after the cropped image in the meme spread in 2019. Sanchez told KYM the photo itself was taken in 2018 while on a night out at a club called Chau Che Clu in Claromeco, Buenos Aires while she was singing a song to him. The reason for their expressions is because it was near the end of the party and they were exhausted.

Spread

In the following days after the initial meme was posted on February 4th, 2019, it continued spreading in Spanish-speaking meme circles online. For example, later that same day on February 4th, another Spanish-language example using the photo in a memetic context was posted by Twitter user MemesNutricion,[2] with the Spanish caption roughly translating to the girl shouting at the boy and telling him to not trust Herbalife and other quick nutrition fixes, receiving over 1,100 likes and 300 retweets in over three years (shown below).

2022 English Resurgence

In mid-August 2022, the image saw a resurgence in meme circles, this time with English text under the name "Girl Explaining." The caption on one of the earliest English examples of the meme depicted the girl talking about astrology and how because of her sign she'd be unable to date others of competing signs, which was tweeted by Twitter user @BaldPrivilege[3] on August 15th, 2022, gaining over 10,000 likes in less than 24 hours (shown below). On August 17th, the meme was then reposted to Reddit's /r/dankmemes[4] by Redditor MisterSnowmax, receiving over 16,000 upvotes and 190 comments in nine hours.


"Bro, I'm telling you, a Gemini cannot date a Scorpio bro, they're incompatible when Venus aligns with Saturn bro, it emits a toxic aura bro" RU

Identity and KYM Interview

On August 18th, 2022, GotFunnyPictures discovered the identity of the woman depicted in the meme as Argentinian resident Denise "Denu" Sanchez.[5] That same day, Sanchez agreed to an interview and to disclose her name, as well as additional context and information behind the origins of the meme that were previously unknown.



Bro Explaining

Bro Explaining refers to a photograph of a man wearing sunglasses and a Houston Astros shirt talking to a blonde woman in a white top. Circulated since 2011, in March 2020, the image gained popularity as a meme in which the man forces his knowledge about various topics, such as video game lore, onto the woman.



Milk Edinburgh

Milk Edinburgh, sometimes called Guy Explaining, is a photo of a man shouting into a woman's ear at a dance club. The image was shared online with captions imagining the man saying something that would make the woman appear bored. The photo was taken at Milk, a dance club in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was shared in memes with the club's logo on the photograph, hence the meme's name "Milk Edinburgh."



John Silver Explaining to Anna Jay

John Silver Explaining to Anna Jay refers to a series of image caption memes based on a still image of wrestler John Silver talking to wrestler Anna Jay, who is looking away while bulging her eyes, as if the topic Silver is talking about is weirding her out or she's trying to escape. The image, which originates from an episode of the "Being The Elite" YouTube series, gained virality on Twitter in February 2022, being used similarly to the Bro Explaining format.
