100 Reasons Why Women are Bad Drivers

We all know that it took women a while to be accepted on the roads. In fact, in many male circles, grunting can still be heard when the words “women” and “driving” are brought up in the same sentence. Unfortunately, some women uphold the bad reputation by committing crazy acts while behind the wheel. They help contribute to the 100 reasons why women are horrible drivers. (I don't want to be a gender bias, but please look at the facts. Peace. Source of the article is at the bottom)

I happen to be a woman. I am a great driver. I am better than most of the men I know. Yes. I know a lot of them. Go to hell all of you. Sexist bastards.

Anonymous said...

no you are not a better driver than all of the men you know, I can agree with this list, being a better driving doesnt mean less accidents, most men know how to stop their car in a slide when the brakes lock, i have yet to see a woman do this...ever

Unless you're Danica Patrick, you're friends are gay guys, or you're an idiot, or you're a lying bitch, or all of the above. You are not, nor ever will be, a good driver. Were you a good driver, you would know it and would not have to post that and give us a good laugh.
