    Wow, this is insane. People on the internet are so brave when they are anonymous. It’s scary to think that people still have such horrible views about strong women. Thank you for sharing!

    Sadly, while I’m appalled, I’m not surprised. Just look at the response when a female dared propose that a female should appear on our currency! It’s disturbing that these attitudes are so pervasive and that the threats used to keep women quiet are becoming more and more violent. A very sorry state of affairs 😦 x
