Bravo Sir!

Ladies. This is what the actual Patriarchy looks like. *Note not one woman or Asian came to the aid. Just the horrible white Patriarchy you all seem to rely on as a non sequitur when yelling about white men killing women.

Wherever there is horrible things happening, look for the helpers, they always come. They are the brave ones, the real heroes.

Well done.
