Lately, with everything that’s been going on, you’d think that women have no place in India and by extension, the world. To quote a notoriously sexist and stupid lawyer who was recently in the news, “In our culture, there is no place for women." And rightly so! It might actually be better if they stopped existing. They make no meaningful contribution to society anyway.

Here are several ways in which women don't matter;

1. They just can't bear any pain. That's why they make terrible athletes.
