  1. I would say we need to get Betty White into that sanctuary ASAP, but that woman is stronger and healthier at 94 than I am at 31!

    Also, I’m seriously tempted to have FTP shaved into the shaven side of my head,so I can literally have hair that says fuck the patriachary. That would make for an awesome start to 2017!

  2. Why do the “fight the Patriarchy” third wavers ignore the FGM going on right here in our country? Why aren’t you fighting for women’s rights where they ACTUALLY DON’T HAVE ANY RIGHTS?

    You don’t realize how well you have it here, until you won’t. Keep those open borders flowing, and Sharia Law will take care of any Patriarchy concerns you may have. In fact, it has already begun in certain areas.

    Nothing wrong with fighting the system, kudos to you. I think your anger and frustration is severely misdirected. FFS 110 years ago you couldn’t vote. Look at where we are……

    Now, in 2017, you can’t drive in Saudi Arabia and your ass will get thrown off a roof by ISIS Patriarchs.

    Listen, white men didn’t create your problems, nor are they holding you down, nor are they treated special. I’m pretty sure my man has busted his ass from age 14 to now, for the honor of paying sky high taxes and received absolutely no help whatsoever from anyone. Do you even affirmative action? Title 9?

    It’s amazing how we have come so far, yet it is never, ever enough. Maybe if you stopped pointing fingers at one specific group of people for your “equality” it wouldn’t look like “special treatment” to the rest of us.

    Please keep an open mind. Please shake the indoctrination from college as best you can…because I’m a slight bit older than a good deal of you, and see straight through the Marxist BS.

    Love, Your Bisexual Sister.
