Claire McCaskill Kindly Encourages Men To 'Shut The Hell Up'

"The world doesn't need your opinion on everything."

In what is possibly one of the greatest videos to ever grace the Internet, Sen. Claire McCaskill has released a public service announcement encouraging all men everywhere to "just shut the hell up."

"As one of just 20 women currently in the Senate, it's important to me to encourage more women to run for office," McCaskill said in the clip, which aired on last night's "Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

"But equally important is encouraging more men to sometimes just shut the hell up. It's not that women don't value your thoughts, it's just that we don't value all of them. The world doesn't need your opinion on everything. For example, what women do with their bodies. Hush."

McCaskill then went on to share a few of the topics women no longer need or want men's opinions on, including "'Star Wars,' pantsuits, selfies, Shonda Rhimes, curtains, carbs, millennials, body hair removal, religion, gluten, Harry Potter, nut allergies, 'Star Wars' again, all art in general, whether or not to brine the Thanksgiving turkey, and ethics in gaming journalism." Brilliant.

Thank you, senator, for saying it so we don't have to.
