More from the Bubble Tea Ninjas aka "Crazy Bitches"

The black-skirted feminists who stormed down North 6th Street and Bedford a few weeks ago leaving a trail of shattered windows in their wake sent out a second manifesto. In it, they note their excitement over your “utter horror,” call for more crazy bitches, and warn they’re gonna “negate the shit out of you.”
Behold! A Modest Proposal from some Crazy Bitches:

In the past weeks, crazy bitches have chosen to show gross yuppie neighborhoods and scummy pesudo[sic]-anarchist rapists their power in some pretty sick and sadistic ways. While rape apologists and generally fucked-up dudes have act horrified and evoked anachronistic concepts of ‚”community” to repudiate this, we, as fellow crazy bitches out to tear this shit to pieces say, ‚”we want more!” The fact of the matter is, when bitches get attacked for making war on their fucked-up conditions, other crazy bitches will be there to turn up the heat even further. We’re excited at the utter horror of ‚”anarcho”-dudes everywhere; this means that someone’s done something right. Our simple proposal: crews of crazy bitches form everywhere, in every city in this country and beyond. Kick the shit out of your rapists, write the insurrectionary feminist theory that we need so bad, become an autonomous force that will destroy everything in its wake. And rape apologists, patriarchs, and ‚”anarcho”-dudes be warned, you will not be safe from our fury. When you fuck with a crazy bitch, you have fucked with all of us. And we’re not so demure and dainty these days.
‚”Dude, I’m gonna negate the shit out of you.”
-one of many future autonomous cells of crazy bitches

Their first comment, a running reactionary theme: “Personally, I feel that the reciprocal action has muted my voice and that the violent reaction to violence is hypocritical at best.”
