Dear Mr. DHTMLKitchen,
THANK YOU FOR SHINING THIS LIGHT on my dark, differently-abled female brain.
THIS EXPLAINS EVERYTHING.
TURNS OUT the reason I can't get most men to understand what sexism is - is
that their brains are different and inherently, biologically, incapable of
comprehending things which exist outside of their personal experience. It's
not your fault; your brain was just born defunct. So don't feel bad, Mr.
Trolololof-- I mean, Snails
P.S. I CAN ROTATE 3-D OBJECTS IN MY HEAD AND YOU CAN'T.
