And did we mention RON PAUL?

You'd think Ron Paul was the hero of my fucking generation. At least with college-age dudes who:
  1. feel shafted by feminism
  2. beat off while reading Maddox's "Greatest Page in the Universe".
His supporters remind me a lot of Paul himself, what with all of the yelling. Paul doesn't yell, of course, but I notice that he's near-hysterical about taxes, the mere existence of any kind of U.S. foreign policy at all, and is terrified of the federal regulation of anything.

And all of his supporters are dudes.

Via Shakesville.

Well, maybe not. But in the video, James Kotecki of finds the lone woman in an entire group of perhaps fifty Ron Paul supporters (who are strongly reminiscent of sports fans, really, repeating Paul's name, and only Paul's name, over and over again. That's very persuasive/manly, boys! Keep it up!). "It's just kind of a message that [women] don't really resonate with, I don't know, I'm not sure why," she says in response to being the only woman present.

Maybe it's got something to do with Paul's self-proclaimed status as "an unshakable foe of abortion". Or perhaps women give a shit about things like federal assistance for lower-income families and affordable health care. You know, issues that affect women, but not, typically, white college-aged men who are stuffed to the brim with privilege. Duh.
