The only legitimate response to your own goddamn father hurr hurring about the trolley problem at you.
The trolley problem is awesome for illustrating how inconsistent we are when it comes to ethics, and that's an important thing to be aware of. Plus, who doesn't love to come up with idiot twists on the problem?
Let's say an evil feminist mad scientist has built a giant Dr. Nim ( http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=153473 ) where her marbles crush random men and your marbles crush random women. How do you defend your choices on Tumblr afterwards?
Like so many other things, the Trolly Problem has been ruined by overuse by idiotic "fans" that barely grasp the substance of what they're ruining in an effort to look more intelligent (or rather, to attempt a 'gotcha' of the person they're posing it at) by piggybacking upon it.

QED by Richard Feynman.
Six Easy Pieces and Six Not So Easy Pieces also by Richard Feynman.
From Eternity to Here by Sean Carroll.

Gotta make sure she's face up, so she can see she'll die as it's happening.
