Do women actually think they would even exist without the protection and support of the stronger, faster and more durable sex? Life wasn’t always a cozy home on a cul-de-sac.

Fragile female minds can't handle the word "man." Need mommy government to remove the word from codes so they can properly function in their daily lives.
