When one heads to Goa, usually the first thing you think about is downing a nice cold beer by the beach. However, if you’re a woman, this act is taboo to CM Manohar Parrikar. He recently made headlines for comments he made in Panaji about women drinking beer.
“I have begun to fear now, because even girls have started drinking beer. The tolerance limit is being crossed,” Parrikar said in Panaji on Friday, addressing the state youth parliament.
However, women on Twitter weren’t going to take his gender biased comment lying down so now Twitter is filled with the hashtag #womenwhodrinkbeer. Some even going as far as to raise a glass to the ex-defense minister himself.
To Sir, With Love.
Cheers from Goa, Mr Parrikar! #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer

Oh my, looks like these beer drinkers are unbeerable when their hops are threatened.
