Women's March on Washington
« on: January 11, 2017, 12:06:15 AM »
Anyone else attending the women's March on Washington on January 21? Or any of the local marches scheduled for that day?

I am planning to be there with 4 of the kids. So far, they are most excited by our travel plans. I told them today we would park outside of Washington proper and take the subway in.  "Underground? Really?" sez my 16-yr-old. Yup. They're excited.... Their first train trip AND underground.

My mother can't go (health), but she says I need to carry a "Keep Obamacare" sign. I think I will carry a "Keep your short fingers off Obamacare" sign. She says that's too long, but it makes me laugh.....

Post Obama's farewell speech, I think I will also carry a sign that reads:

We the people Choose Hope.

The incoming administration does not represent change. It is all about a reactionary attempt to roll back change. They won't win in the end, because they aren't right.

So.... A couple days ago, I discovered that a friend of mine is going, and my daughter's school has a cohort going.... So we have all banded together.  The huge advantage for me is that I don't have to pay for a hotel room now. Instead, I get to sleep on the floor of Sidwell Friends School gym. Woohoo!

I also discovered that there is a dress code. Some artist somewhere has this vision of us all wearing pink p***ycat ear hats, as a sign of solidarity and strength. I believe in humoring artists wherever possible. Also, it makes me smile.

This is going to be so fun.

Have fun Shawna!

As an outsider looking in I really feel pity for your country right now.

Y'all are running around with bibles and guns, electing a misogynistic racist as your representative to the rest of the world whilst executing mentally disturbed people on weekends. Most of the rest of the western world stopped doing stuff like this in the early or mid twentieth century.

Well, that's the view from the outside looking in anyway. I wish you all the best but I and many of my friends have been boycotting all American goods since Trump got elected and will be doing so for the next 4 years. I feel sorry for the common worker in the street but I want no part of contributing to a society that would choose such a person to take power.

This is the reason I also boycott Chinese goods too. Yep..... unfortunately, you guys are being grouped with countries like China now. Sad, because I have many many friends in the US and even lived there for a short while.

But it's not my house. You guys can run it any way you see fit. Good luck with it.  ||beerchug||

Women's March on Washington Bans Pro-Life Groups

“Across the country, women who oppose abortion ... are demanding to be officially included in Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington. But those requests have been spurned ... If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman’s right to choose,” Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn-born Palestinian-American Muslim racial justice and civil-rights activist, and one of four co-chairwomen of the march, said in an interview on Tuesday.

" Many anti-abortion women are simply staying home. But one group, Students for Life of America, which organizes college students to oppose abortion, does plan to march, banners and all. Kristan Hawkins, its president, a 31-year-old mother of four, said she, too, made a request for partnership status, which she said was ignored. She said her marchers will wear Go-Pro cameras: “When they start spitting and screaming at us it will be helpful ...

"Gloria Steinem, an honorary co-chairwoman of the march, wrote in an email message. She said if women “want to make decisions over their own bodies themselves, and want other women to have the same power, then they should feel very welcome at the march.” Yet many women do not. Among them is Charmaine Yoest, a vocal opponent of abortion who is a senior fellow at American Values, a conservative organization here. “This is what we conservative women live with all the time, this idea that we somehow aren’t really women and we just reflect internalized misogyny,” she said. Of the march, she added: “I don’t think they represent women. I think they are a wholly owned subsidiary of the abortion movement.” - New York Times - January 18.

The root question is whether these anti-abortion women are coming to cheer or protest Trump?

Edit:  Eyes, the bolded header you invented is false and is contradicted by the content you cite.  Why fudge up your own credibility thusly?

1 - My header is not in quotes, because it is my header.

2 - The WMOW has banned pro-life groups; absolutely nothing false about that.

The Women’s March on Washington's mission statement includes an invitation for "all defenders of human rights” to attend, but evidently not an invitation for defenders of life-in-the-womb.

If you write to Robert Iger requesting official partnership status with Disney, and you are ignored, does that also mean that you are banned from wearing your Mickey outfit?   ||Kerly||

Found out today that two of my sisters and three nieces are in DC for the March.  Go, women!!!

I'd a joined 'em but in public venues my pink p***y ears highlight poorly counterpoised against the moderately receding hairline.

K. We are here at Sidwell Friends School in the gym. Just spent the night under the bleachers on a gym mat. Not too bad really.

The ladies at the McDonald's where I work have promised to help bail me out if I get arrested. Even the ones who voted for Trump (which I think is most of them, although we always avoid talking politics at work). I told them I was going to go roll a cop car, but they just laughed at me for some reason.

Re: the anti-abortion folks who are feeling left out.... I have some sympathy. But I am anti-abortion and I don't feel left out.... The problem as I see it is that there is a wing of the anti-abortion faction that isn't pro-woman at all, even if they are women. Instead of trying to make abortion rare by making access to contraceptives easy, and ensuring paid family leave, and affordable decent childcare, and good free mental health professional counselors for women facing crisis pregnancies... so that only women in real need of an abortion feel that they need one... Instead, these people want to make all abortions illegal, without providing any real support for women and their babies. In fact, they want to remove all sorts of government safety nets that children benefit from.

The hypocrisy of the politically loud anti-abortion folks turned me off them a while back. When they start lobbying as hard for paid family leave as they do for "heartbeat bills", I will begin believing that they really care about the welfare of women and babies. Til then... meh.

At the Women's March, Ashley Judd read a poem containing these lines:

"I am a nasty women, I'm not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheeto dust."

"I'm not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, your wet dreams infused with your own genes" 

"I feel Hitler in these streets, a mustache traded for a toupee."

First off I love god too. I just wish that people would not abuse or hide behind god for there true intentions. That beautiful smile can not betray me anymore.

I do not care what any woman says or do. I want to know what her husband does and where is she or he getting the funding so she could dilly dally around and waste time.

Oh I know? the husband is working like a dog elsewhere sucking money our of our wallets. May it be a private business, or government organization, or even commit illegal criminal acts under a blind eye.

While the non-he(she ) ( the fake/false Jezzibel, the whore queen, the witch, the b***h )   talks bs confusing the masses.

I call upon my fellow men to ignore this vagina-march and not to fund anything positive about women until all men are safe from victimization of being normal men.
