We don't have to agree with her in order to see that she has done a fine job of making a claim, then connecting dots to support her claim.

    I don't have a problem agreeing with you about her making an argument, but IMO her argument grew from her racism.
    And that aint good.

    I am going to get in trouble here, but lets move on from armpits. I believe most women shave their armpits, and almost all of them shave their legs.
    I am an old man and in my day most women grew hair in their pelvic region.
    I am no expert on this, and certainly have no experience with it, but I have been told by the younger set that many women today shave their pelvic area.

    Now I ask the question to feminists, Does this mean if you don't look like a gorilla you cannot be a feminist?

    So would adding Hersheys syrup be the offensive equivalent of black face?

    WUT: College Student Explains Why Milk Is Racist



    Samantha Diaz, a staff writer for California State University-Long Beach's student newspaper The Daily 49er, wrote an article claiming that white supremacists and neo-Nazis are appropriating milk as a symbol of hate. Here is the hook to her article:

    When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.

    What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.

    Diaz then argued that the federal government's endorsement of milk as a beneficial part of the country's diet "contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health." She stated that because African-Americans do not suffer from osteoporosis, a bone disease, at the same rates as most Americans, the United States is promoting a racist agenda. She also argued that the trolls at 4chan who hijacked Shia LaBeouf's "He Will Not Divide Us" shtick, drank milk to counter-protest him as a means of imposing white supremacy on the actor.

    Samantha, you are being udderly ridiculous.
    Proud to be a cereal comma user.
