Hello, based department?

She was all about medicine, fuck everything else. And that's why she's of the Berserker class.

She also never experienced the "Florence Nightingale Effect."

As much as I adore all three Back to the Future movies, the term was made up for said movies. They just needed a well-known nurse to name it after.

Ah me and Florence both realized most women are completely incapable of empathy.

What does that make mothers?

What do you mean? Being a mother is a biological function.

Does she know what her kid is feeling?

You and anyone with any self respect throughout all of human history

Florence Nightingale was right about women.

I wonder if she's going to be cancelled as a historical figure at some point, under the pretence that she was racist or something along those lines, to hide this quote.

They already kinda try that by saying all her achievements are actually Mary Seacole's achievements and that she took credit for them.

Both worked in the Crimean war and both had better treatment methods than their contemporaries at the time so both should be recognised but the left will put their fetish for black people above anything else, especially white people.

I like how Imp has basically dug his heels in on this issue for months (years?) at this point -- and it's getting harder and harder to argue against.

I've thought this for a long time. The 'in group bias' women have is more about their ego than a sisterhood

There are very few guarantees in life...the sunrise in the morning, flowers in the spring, cool mornings in the fall...and TheImp posting about women on KIA2.

I may not always agree with you, but it's nice to have some consistency in this crazy world.

The other half of my out of town visit from my other recent post was basically this. Like sitting around listening to women talk about how no one does anything for them that's good enough even when people have done tons for them. These being the same people they "love" so much yet never say anything positive about. I can't help but sitting there thinking it's all so selfish. I'd never go as far to say it's all women, but these attitudes are sure present in a huge percentage of them.

Doesn't this completely fuck with your programming. I mean, apparently she's saying what you deem to be right, but on the other hand she is a woman and as such everything she says has the endgoal of making your life miserable and kill all men.

I always lie

Logic that!

Not really.

It's a letter to another woman. It's a truth confessed solely to the in-group.

I'm not finding this. I see letters from 71, but not december of 61. Can anyone post a primary source? (Or retranscription, since it's probably handwritten script on aging paper etc)
