This one I have a comment on more than just a drive-by:
“I walked by the sign on Friday night, and my first response was just anger,” Kulandaisamy said. “I currently am a volunteer at the women’s shelter in Austin, so my sensitivity is extra high, but I think my reaction would have been the same regardless.

Translation: “I walked by the sign on Friday night, and my first thought was how can I make this sign all about me? Look at how much better than you I am: I volunteer at a women’s shelter. This makes me extra-special and an expert on humor, and super sensitive to the plight of other women, which also makes me more special than you.”
