When old people take pen to paper and write letters to the editor of their favorite newspaper, hilarious consequences often ensue. Such was the case in the Fitchburg Sentinel today…..
In a recent edition of the Sentinel & Enterprise on the celebrity news page there were two women — a singer and an actress — that were very suggestively dressed. Some women wonder why they aren’t respected. First, if you want to be treated like a lady and not be taken advantage of, you should try to dress like a lady. A woman’s body is too tempting to some men, it seems.
Our women and girls need to have a good example set for them by their mothers and even grandmothers and teachers. And fathers and husbands, if you think your wife, girlfriend, or daughter is dressed inappropriately, speak up. I’m sure you don’t want them to be assaulted or, worse, raped.
Muslim women seem to save their femininity for their husbands and good for them.
On another note, It makes me nervous when I see women jogging with their hair in a ponytail. It would be so easy for some guy to grab that tail. Could you pin it up somehow? I’m praying that you won’t be grabbed by it.
God I love old people. I obviously don’t agree with a single thing she said (although I understand the point she tried to articulate but failed so miserably at), but there’s nothing more amusing than an elderly person who has run out of fucks to give. It’s one of the most hilarious and entertaining things that can happen. Social justice warriors are always telling each other to challenge their racist uncle or grandfather at Thanksgiving. Newsflash – it’s not gonna work. No one over the age of 70 in the history of time has ever changed their opinion about anything. Ever.
So many strong points being made at the same time. First of all, it’s the woman’s fault when she gets raped by a man according to Marilyn, because women’s bodies are just too tempting to us guys. As a male I lack self control and when I see a woman who is attractive and dressed provocatively I just can’t help myself. There’s literally nothing I can do. Contrary to popular opinion men do NOT have free will.
Oh, and those Muslim women really have it all figured out:
Because Saudi culture is a culture that we should be embracing in the land of the free and the home of the brave. While we’re at it let’s ban women from driving. They could run into a guy at a red light and get raped. Naturally it would be their fault.
The best part is the tangent at the end where she just had to get that monkey off her chest – women should NOT be running with pony tails. There, I said it! It’s a huge problem these days. No one’s gonna be grabbing Marilyn’s hair during her next half marathon….

LOL. The fact that Marilyn is a poll worker is the most predictable thing ever. That right there is why I always vote at least 3 times in every election. Because Marilyn is every poll worker I’ve ever seen. They ask you your address. You look at the book that is right in front of you and filled with addresses. You pick one that hasn’t been crossed out with her red color pencil. You vote. You come back 3 hours later and repeat. But yea, our elections aren’t completely flawed or anything like that. It’s not like Marilyn lives in a city where a write in candidate lost to the sitting mayor by a hundred votes.
This is far from her first letter to the editor either. But usually she’s complaining about those out of control kids driving 30 mph:
Look, you can’t get upset with old people. My grandmother once yelled out in church, “too many gays in church.” Shit happens. Nothing you can do about it. They got us through World War 2 so they have the ultimate trump card. Ideals and values change over time. When I’m older I’ll probably resist the shit out of whatever social justice flavor of the month bullshit is being cooked up too. Just let them have their say, don’t take them too seriously, and laugh it off.
Hey ladies, cover it up!! I can't contain myself right now! pic.twitter.com/qC0UIcBVpo

Unfortunately this letter has caused a huge shitstorm as many have not heeded this advice:
“Dangerous and destructive?” She’s 81. Da fuq is she gonna do? She wrote a letter to the editor of a small town newspaper. Everyone who is normal is laughing at the hilarity of it all. Remember humor?
A lot of people were upset with the Sentinel for printing the letter:
Guess what? I’m willing to bet that Marilyn Carter pays for a print subscription to the Sentinel, while everyone else hear reads it for free. When she writes a letter they’re going to print it. Because she gives them money and you don’t. She probably has no idea what Facebook is, and certainly wouldn’t know what to do with the Internet machine to find the Sentinel online.
More importantly, who wouldn’t want this letter printed? I couldn’t stop laughing at it. The overreaction to this is everything that is wrong with society today. Stop telling me what I can and cannot laugh at. Stop telling people (yes, even bigoted ones) what they can and cannot say. The media should show everyone’s opinion and let us decide if we agree with said opinions, rather than protecting us from unpopular opinions that make us feel uncomfortable. This is how a free society works. This is what Nazis do – they define certain speech as “dangerous” and then they ban it. Stop being Nazis.
Of for fuck’s sake. Where the hell did the Sentinel endorse this? The woman wrote a letter, they printed it and shared it on their Facebook page. Do you really not understand how a letter to the editor works?
Anyway, keep doing your thing Marilyn. I completely disagree with everything you said, but I’m not naive enough to try to change your opinion. The beauty of this country is we are allowed to exchange ideas and disagree with one another without the threat of censorship. At least we used to be able to. See you on election day. Several times.
