Not so much that they think Trump is going to fix it or something like that. But more that the reason why there are over a million women pissed off about the same general thing at the same time is being fueled over years of having Men in Power just laugh and joke about their problems while making laws against their wishes.

I don't know what their actual goal is. It might just be a warning to let men in power know that they are pissed off and those men are on thin ice. I don't know. But I do know that whenever any group of million people all come together to voice their protest about something, somebody had better listen.

Best case is that some of them all sit down and find out what the problem is and work out some way to fix it. Or next time, it's going to be 10 million, then 100 million. The fact that it's mostly women is another important feature that any male beyond the age of 10 should realize is also important for a variety of reasons too.

Obviously there is a problem somewhere. The fact that it's taken over a million women to all agree to come together and make an issue of it means someone needs to figure out what the hell is going on. Because I'm pretty sure the fact that some of us still don't understand the problem, is also part of the problem.


I read the statement. They are for baby killing. They are for equality (which is good). They are for fixing a pay gap that doesn't exist. They are for gender rights (I dont get this, it's genetics?, transition if you want, whatever). They are for everyone having paid leave to care for new baby's. Hey are against rape (good).

All it took was the threat of the GOP finally destroying healthcare.

As a direct response to the wording of the title, I suggest that must maybe, some of those women would start to rethink their wasted anger at "old white men" and question their current position as being as blatantly sexist as you can get.

Maybe not.


At this point, I don't care why they think this way. I suppose it doesn't matter. What DOES matter, to me at least, is I'm squarely in those cross-hairs.

What do I need to be worried about? That's the question on my mind. I'm still coming to terms with an answer on that one, but quickly building a plan of defense.



LOLOLOLOLOOL

Just kidding. I'll go on and live my life.

nothing

will

change

have fun walking in large groups

Hi everyone, this is Tempter's superego. Now that the iD has had his fun, allow me to explain why this "platform" is doomed.

1) It's too encompassing yet completely devoid of any single SMART goal, according to the link previously posted by Abysha. Are we to believe people are literally marching on belief? No, it's another manufactured army from the elite progressives to thwart Trump. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out the idea was concocted in a lowly-lit smoke-room with shady elites.


2) It's been identified as weak, too early in the process of social warfare. Despite being propped up by the MSM and most likely funded by the usual backers, alt-media websites and even local news channels are getting in on portraying with "through the looking glass" pieces which often identify the views of woman as not behind this.


Even CNN, king of Soros-backed programming, has this as their current Headline piece on the topic:

Women's march: Cathartic moment or enduring movement?

Why the hell would we want to go back before the ACA with junk plans, denial of service for extended illnesses, pre-existing condition refusals, payout caps and faster rising costs?

Actually looking at the list every pro abortion group flooded the area with busses. Since Trump can't overturn roe v wade seems pointless to me in general. People are trying to make more of this than it is really it's not like the million man march. They had an agenda. This is just a Mish mash of women's issues that aren't even in jeopardy. I saw there list and couldn't help but think nothing on there list is even on Trump's radar. So they basically had a march to stop him from doing things he wasn't planning on doing anyway. But I guess in this crazy mixed up world that makes sense.

To be clear. I'm not saying that they're right by default or anything. All I'm saying is that belittling them or dismissing a million plus people gathered together in protest should be something that people take seriously. Especially when it's primarily all of one sex doing it.

I respect women and while I have no problem calling them on their BS like anyone else, I still respect them as the yin to my yang. They deserve that and I understand their position on some things. Men do treat women like sh*t quite a bit. But that goes both ways as well. But that doesn't make it ok in either direction.

I'd also like to think that if it was a million men pissed off together about something that women would show a little respect too. At least enough to hear us out like adults and not just laugh and make jokes about it. I think they deserve the same as what we would expect of them.

Maybe you need a treadmill or a cause to march on for health reasons?

At least that would be doing something instead of being "just a victim of society and all of its games".

No. They aren't losers.

Oh if a million men marched I gaurantee there wouldn't be respect, unless it was a purely racial march.

Perhaps most of the women who protested are for most of those things, but not all? But who knows...

Who is thrump?
I don't care how many white women voted for Trump. I know more people voted for Clinton. But I understand the system and don't complain about it.


so who marched?(not the winners)

As far as I'm concerned, we all lost.

Racial marches DO NOT deserve respect.

Health insurance that people have to "qualify for" is great for young and/or healthy individuals. It entitles them to much lower deductibles and premiums, than what ObamaCare delivers. Everyone else can stay with ObamaCare, or whatever its equivalent will be called.

No. I'm good. I don't need a treadmill.

I'm not a victim.

I disagree. Because when a million men do it, it's called War and people do in fact pay attention and show some respect. Even if it comes from fear of being killed should they decide to not respect it.

I would hope it doesn't have to come to that point for women before people start to listen to them or it's a pretty sad state of affairs.
