Psych! I Found Men Irrelevant Way Before Ghostbusters

I Just Watched Ghostbusters and I Now Find Men Irrelevant

by
This past weekend I went to see Ghostbusters with three other ball-busting women and afterward we were so enraged at the yoke of oppressive misogyny and sexism holding us back that we kneed every man we saw in the balls and set a bunch of dumpsters on fire.

And Not Just For Actually Watching These Debates

What Can We Do When We Are The Dumbasses?

When there’s a problem, particularly a big one, we love blaming other people. There are few things more satisfying then identifying someone to blame and then blaming the bejeezus out of that person.
