  1. She’s definitely doing her bit for an islamic demographic takeover. These childfree feminists have no respect for human bio-diversity.

  2. Brilliant Stuff. Give the lady a Gold Snowflake.

    “The level of emotional incontinence felt all too familiar. My mother hated her mother, who disliked her own. My mother had problems with me. And on we spiralled in an atmosphere of provincial Sophoclean melodrama. Small wonder my own attitude might be summarised: “The buck stops here.”

    Not that I’m judging.”

  3. I don’t mind that she is doing us all a favour by removing herself from the gene pool. But I wish she would shut the f**K up about it.

    Why newspapers think twelve yentas yenting makes for compelling reading escapes me. They should simply notice the obvious fact that sane women have better things to do with their time than write and so only employ men.

    And not fiction in the LHTD or Picketty sense but actual, sold on Amazon in the “deliberate untruths for entertainment purposes”, fiction.

    It’s like me trying to counter SMFS’s delusions about the military by using Warlord or Victor stories.

    Well, you would have to lift your game somewhat. Why not start with Biggles?

    You may think SFMS is deluded, but you go too far the other way in countering him. Men and women are not interchangeable on the battlefield: in support services, maybe. At the pointy end, not so much.
