Dept. of If You Can't Say Anything Nice

Phyllis Schlafly is Dead

As it says on the tin.
I wish I could think of something nice to say about the woman. She certainly was a bundle of energy. How about these? She had a way with words.

She was also a mean-spirited, hypocritical ultra-conservative force for regression and oppression. And of all those attributes, it may be her hypocrisy that has always rubbed me the most raw. She was able to live her very independent life, dedicated to fighting against independence for women, because she married a rich man.

Faugh. Enough. There were people who loved her, and I am sorry that they feel the loss.

But the world was made worse through her efforts, and if there is a seat of god, she ought to hang her head in shame before it.
