Terrible advice show urges dads to keep their daughters from going to college (Credit: YouTube)

Raylan Alleman is a Louisiana-based certified public accountant who, in his spare time and just for funsies, dabbles in making Internet videos filled with terrible advice about how to live your life in a terrible way.

Here is some of his advice: Hey, dads! Don’t let your daughters go to college because sexual impurity something something women don’t really need an education something something something! 

Now look, I know plenty of really intelligent and accomplished people who never went to college, and no one should feel obligated to go or in any way inadequate if they didn’t go, but the idea of telling families to keep young women from seeking higher education because they might lose their “purity” is obviously total bullshit.



I am perfectly happy to let this fool Alleman speak for himself, but Lindy West over at Jezebel was generous enough to provide a nice rundown of why he is such a garbage peddler. But you may not want to believe me (or West) about this (or anything, really!) because, per Alleman, feminists are liars who don’t care about women.
