Thank you for your answer. I really am interested in other people's views on the march and the speeches. I only watched Ashley's and Scarlett's, but I liked Scarlett's better to be honest. If my mother were alive she would probably be at the march.
This seems to be a common theme for some reason... I'll say it again: your president has said much worse about women and yet you handed him one of the most powerful positions in the world so don't seem to be too put off by HIS nastiness.
Thank you, and I definitely won't delete. I want to hear others opinions. I am not a feminist, not that it matters, but I have a much different view than alot of women that I know. I'm just interested in what others think of her speech.
Thanks, good to know.
What did Trump DO? Alienate over half of Americans with insults like his supporters are now empowered to continue doing every day. This is now Trumpland; and we get that you're very happy in it. Four years will zip by like the FUN they will be. :)
I'm not surprised that you missed the point but she was referring to feminine hygiene products being taxed as a "luxury item" and pointing out how truly not luxurious it is. Compare it with Viagara/Rogaine not being taxed and it's pure crazy.
To be clear, there is no additional tax imposed on tampons. The tax is a regular sales tax which applies to most things. If Ashley has a problem with that, she can contact the IRS and ask them to explain the highly complicated tax laws.
So do you not get the implications of exempting Viagra and Rogaine from tax but not feminine hygiene products? It says that men's boners and hair growth = less of a luxury than a woman not bleeding through her pants.
Like I said, contact the IRS and learn some things. Food and clothing have the same tax.. I'm pretty sure, food and clothing is not a sexist issue. A congresswoman from CA created this controversy to garner popularity among uninformed Liberals.
Oops, food is tax exempt in many states and taxed at a reduced rate in most others. Watch who you're telling to "learn some things."
You're also totally ignoring the comparison. Why would Viagra/Rogaine be tax exempt if most other things aren't?
Aime, I know you like playing Gotcha' Rograine and feminine hygiene products is not the point. Luxury tax laws are the perogative of the state. I get it. You are fine with Judd. I maintain that her speech was crazy. Pretty obvious to most anyone.
For what it's worth, it's not really Judd's speech, a 19 year old woman from Tennessee wrote it and Judd just shared. The original version is less chaotic and makes a few more interesting points. It is not crazy.
Well then, maybe Judd should stick to the script. Ad lib is obviously not her strength. She sounded ridiculous.
I couldn't watch the whole thing. Ashley has always been quite the drama queen & feminist; and the drama has come out to play since Trump took a much broader part of the world stage. He & his supporters started it, LoL! I agree, Scarlet's was
"I moved on her like a b*tch [...] And she was married."
"Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anything."
"It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees”
“You have to treat [women] like sh*t”
Can't have anyone being vulgar now can we
Does it really matter who organized it? The point is, millions of people came out & represented many more millions who stayed home. And yeah, since when are Trump's supporters concerned about vulgarity? "My fingers are long and beautiful..." Ugh!
