It’s Valentine’s Day! The day when the gift/greeting card industrial complex encourages us all to fee like garbage about our relationships! Or about not having one at all! Our media/families/friends/co-workers do that all the time anyway, but on Valentine’s Day, it’s sanctioned!
What irritates me most about Valentine’s Day is the way our overlords have made it all about feminine emotion, women’s expectations, and men’s inability to deliver on corporate approved expressions of love and romance. All our modern Valentine’s Day does is provide another outlet to vilify women and anything considered feminine.

The following options are printable instant downloads, so you can still have something for Friday if you’re into stuff like punctuality.
