REASONS ELAINE BENES IS THE BEST FEMALE SITCOM CHARACTER OF ALL TIME

She was so very ahead of her time.
  1. She steals the show from three brilliant, male, comedic actors. She can hang-with and overshadow the boys club that is Seinfeld (and comedies in general at times).
  2. She was the female lead of a major sitcom without being blond or stupid.
  3. She was the original Carrie Bradshaw when it comes to being the "modern woman" on TV, except she's smarter, funnier and sexier.
  4. What that means is she was having sex just as much as the male leads but not feverishly looking for a LTR. Also openly discussed birth control, masturbation, the female orgasm, etc.
  5. She was an independent woman.
  6. She wasn't afraid to fight, yell, scream or offend anyone.
  7. Someone asked her to pull off this outfit for like 5 years and she did it.
  8. She wasn't whiney or bitchy within the group dynamic
  9. But she doesn't let anyone get away with bullshit
  10. She invented "dance like nobody's watching"
  11. She rocked an insane head of hair
  12. She remained friends with her ex and was super cool about it (LIKE MANY REAL LIFE WOMEN ARE).
    Though Jerry and Elaine totally end up together in my dreams.
  13. She gets hotter with age.
