Or something

Conservative activist and Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly on Thursday yelled at some clouds.

Phyllis Schlafly feels pretty mad about “the peculiar ideology of the feminists” and the things these feminist are doing to "promote training for girls to enter boys’ fields." Because apparently letting little girls know that they can enter any professional field they'd like (and letting little boys know the same) is fighting a "war with Mother Nature."


Phyllis Schlafly is so mad.

She also said this while being so mad: "[Feminists are] are not promoting equality of male and female; they are for interchangeability of the genders. The feminists are at war with Mother Nature, and Mother Nature keeps winning, so the feminists are constantly angry at what they call the patriarchy." (Though I am actually really angry at the patriarchy, so she kind of has me on that one.)

Then she said this while being so mad: "The feminists oppose competitive games where somebody wins and somebody else loses, and they manifest this particular ideology starting in elementary schools." (Which probably explains why there are no women's competitive sports. Oh wait! Whoops! Oh geez!)


Oh Phyllis Schlafly, stop being so Phyllis Schlafly all the time!
