Phyllis Schlafly died Monday at the age of 92, and Twitter users couldn’t even wait for her body to grow cold before celebrating her death in enthusiastic fashion.
Author and journalist Mark Harris summed up Schlafly’s life by saying she made the world worse off, and then jetted off to the movies.
Phyllis Schlafly's dead. She did a lot to make life worse for people I care about. I'm going to the movies now.

Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican took a similar tack, saying Schlafly had “squandered” her entire life.
I feel pity for Phyllis Schlafly. Given 92 years, she spent them fighting against women's rights, gays & people of color. A life squandered.

Upworthy’s Parker Malloy had a similar perspective on the matter.
But for real, Phyllis Schlafly was just a horrible person.
