Bullying Maxine

I read that a few people on the right (although who knows on social media—lots of trolls)  are bullying Maxine and the Red Hen biddy. Stop it! No need to act like a Democrat. Besides, their bad behavior is helping Trump.

I'm not being disrespectful to women by using the term "biddy," even though it is slang for a cranky, tiresome old woman. Biddy is also the term used when calling hens to come. It’s like cu-boss (come bossy) when calling the cows. When I was a child, my mother raised a few chickens whose eggs were worth $10 an egg by the time she spent the money to keep them alive.
