Writer free to drive her “tiny, fuel-efficient piece of shit”
This is in response to Jessica Suarez’s article “SUVs target the vain and the selfish.” Ms. Suarez, who are you kidding with your article? I honestly couldn’t believe some of the things that I read.
I don’t know what fraternity guy screwed you over or called one of your friends a “fag,” but get over it. And why do you seem to think that every sorority woman has “two super cute toe rings” and a lei hanging from her rear-view mirror? If you were actually in a sorority, you would know that wasn’t true. FYI: Not all people that drive SUVs are the way you describe them to be. My dad drives a Chevy Tahoe, and he is neither nervous about his 22-year marriage to my mother or uncomfortable about parenthood, considering he raised three children.
I think it is such an assumption for you to say that SUVs are marketed toward the rich and stupid. What about most of our law enforcement around the country that are trying to “serve and protect” you but drive SUVs? What about our government officials that run this country but drive Chevy Suburbans? You’re gonna say that they are rich and stupid? Exactly, that’s what I thought.
So, yeah, people may drive SUVs because they feel safer; let them. You claim that the occupant death rate is 6 to 8 percent higher in an SUV anyway. So now, Ms. Suarez, you can keep driving around in your tiny, fuel-efficient piece of shit while I pass by you in my supposedly unsafe, more likely to kill me SUV, and not feel bad.
