5. The outrage and HoF hatred is very comical to me.

(Comical and puzzling at the same time)

That a group of strong, intelligent, women (and a few men) who speak up regularly about issues that affect and harm at least half the world's population, have been demonized as the worst of the worst.

It is really mind boggling to me.

This is not radical stuff, it is not complicated stuff, it is not even arguable stuff... yet people want to make arguments out of it.

I won't argue because I have trouble arguing something that is in-your-face obvious. Feels like people want to argue just because that's what they like to do.

Fuck that. I have a life. And circular arguments bore me to tears.

I do appreciate the hell out of those of you who continue to fight the good fight.

What's not comical is that so many women are harmed, at the hands of partners and strangers, every single day, all over the world, and so many people just seem to accept it as "what is".

That enrages me.
