no hope for the human race reminds me of the creators of the above anti-women’s voting rights postcard from 100 years ago.
“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.”

Way to turn this situation into activism! As a (slightly) older feminist—your story absolutely could have been mine. The louder you fight patriarchy, the more ridiculous the backlash seems to be. Fight strong and live loud…you’re paving the way for the next wave of feminists :)
…and here’s a photo to add to the collection: These are what feminists (who are kicking too much ass to read ignorant comments) look like. Boom.
