Things I am too hot to care about

It’s the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don’t get it! They’re not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, health care. They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world.”

–Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, on why young women don’t need to vote

  1. Affordable housing. With hair like this, you don’t need a roof over your head.
  2. Parental leave. Sometimes I think about having a kid but then I just rub my perfectly shaped stomach until I drift into a peaceful sleep.
  3. Community investment. I believe strongly in the importance of building youths’ self-esteem so it’s really best that I just stay home.
  4. Income inequality. Coins are sort of reflective, so every time I go to pay for something I am startled by my impeccable bone structure.
  5. Safety. Once someone tried to mug me but I just smiled.
  6. Criminal justice. Once someone tried to arrest me but I just smiled.
  7. Police brutality. Once a cop was going to shoot me but I just smiled.
  8. Education. Sometimes, I wake up in the morning, lug all my textbooks to the library, turn to the assignment, open up my laptop, and suddenly it’s four hours later and my Photobooth library is full.
  9. Reproductive health care access. I am out of everyone’s league.
