Did your women march for women?
We get so PC we cannot call them our women, like we would my buddy. Well my lady friends who are pressing their issues are my women. I love them and at least 3 blood relations are taking part.
Push it to the limit ladies. Get seen and get heard. And do not stop.
Just me, but that is how I feel. Do not oppose, celebrate and act in harmony with that is right. Demand by righteousness not by entitlement. Be like Anthony who we must have a day of.
I know people who participated, some in my extended family, but I never had any intentions of marching even if I could have. I simply do not feel "underprivileged" for being a woman. There have been too many other things that have, in a way, discriminated against me. In some instances, it was affirmative action due to race and therefore first come, first serve didn't really apply even though help was needed. Also, there are opportunities available solely for women out there. I've had the good fortune of having a few strong women in my life who show me that being a woman is not a setback.
I also wouldn't be caught dead wearing a vagina suit, not that everyone who marched did, but for those who did, how in the hell does that make a statement that demands respect?
That said, I am very much pro-life and still believe women should be treated with the same respect as men and that every race or religion, political views, etc should all be treated with decent human respect. But, no, I don't feel like I need to March to teach my children that women and their bodies need to be respected, as do everyone's. Or that being male or female shouldn't stop them from becoming whatever they want.
I understand. It is good what you say. No one "needs" to march or vote. It is perfectly acceptable.
I can hardly wait for a middle aged white fat guy march. We really get hammered. But we do not march.
Eric, when you bring it to a more global scale, as pointing out women in some countries do not have rights, it is wo striving for. Hope for the future.
Not sure, Faith, if you refer 2 my original answer or the reply to Eric.
Shan and Faith, I think we are in accord. I was raised by a mom who believed in standing up and I raised my daughters to also. My wife is a wonderful force to be reckoned with. That which is in common is seeking truth and standing for something.
No doubt, strong women are forces to be reckoned with!
I have a friend who marched in Washington and it looked like quite the day! We had some marches up here in Canada as well, my best friend who lives in Toronto went to that one. I would have loved to take my daughter to the one in my city but unfortunately didn't hear about it until I had committed to something else. Next time, if/when there is one!
The women in your life are lucky to have such a supportive man behind them. I've seen SO much negativity coming from men (and some women as well which is just perplexing), some of which I know personally, which is upsetting (and just goes to show why we need to organize these things in the first place).
Aime, it is good to hear from you. Isn't it cool that it is world wide (unless in a place where women meet machine guns). The battle is not over.
A fun thing in my home we think there is a sleeping Tigris. I do not think that this lady will sit back.
It was a march for liberal women only, as demonstrated by their attempts to exclude pro-life liberals and the assaults on conservative female reporters (Rebel Media female camera-person and reporter attacked at Canadian event).
Tamara, I think those were headline getters. And of course there are factions between women as there are between men. Each should be respected.
Feminists have told me I'm not a real woman because I'm not a feminist. Talk about identity politics dividing people!
I wonder if people who say "I'm not a feminist" actually know what the definition of feminism is or if they just judge based on extremists
Feminism: "the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes"
Do you disagree?
Great notion and one that women in my life follow and I support. But you have to be a blind dumb idiot not to see the divisiveness of Gloria and Madonna and Judd. My ladies marched and I paid some freight -- to support not to teat down. Wicked.
First wave feminism - women are equal to men. Fourth wave feminism - men are toxic and inferior to women. I am a feminist from the classic perspective, not the modern one.
Most women I know are self-proclaimed feminists, myself included, and not one would say that men are toxic/inferior. I wish people who agreed w/ the actual definition were more vocal about being feminists to counter the extremists who muddy it.
My mom was a feminist as early as the 1940's. By the 90's she was the first lady chair of a major hospital in Arizona. I consulted for her so as to use Robert's rules to bully chauvinist Doctors. She insisted on being called Chairman.
I got a woman in her thirties and one in her twenties and I have great lady for an ex. And I got me some women, like my three older sisters and I got a ghost of a mamma. They are liberal and Conservative. But they all did some marching. And of yea I threw some cash at it and I am a proud man. They make me proud.
Janis Joplin is a hero of mine and a woman --; though I shook her hand and kissed on a rooftop bar party her hand Ms. Fonda and I kept it honorable she is tops in my book.
I met Gloria in a courtroom in San Fran. Life is good.
Women are good. They raised me. I cannot do good enough for the women who have loved me from a beachfront property to getting me out of jail.
But just like me. We fail but we get back up again
Women are not different than my gnarly ass.If someone wants to create a divide. Bring it on sister. My women love me. And I love them.
This question, if it constitutes a ? is totally lacking any basis to answer. It is convoluted, rambling, vague and ambiguous. Is it a ? or a non rhyming poem?
Just some constructive criticism.
All of the women in my life marched, they did it on November 8, 2016 and they won their march.
A great sentiment. And thank you for saying "women in my life". But I bet that is inaccurate as the grocery store lady clerk is clearly in your life and you have no clue about her position. I have lady neighbors and a post lady in my life.

How many people marched in the March for Life event in Washington DC?There were a large crowd yesterday at this event. Did you read or hear about this on TV news?Compare this to the Women's protest march last week? How was that covered? The media bias is so apparent.

The Feminine Mystique, which aptly described the malaise of the college educated, upper middle class suburban woman of the late 1950s-early 1960s. Ms. Friedan was astute in describing the anomie of the educated housewife subverting her intellect and talent to conform to a rigidly gender-based...

Why do so many confuse Feminism with Misandry?Misandry is the hatred of men, feeling that men are beneath women. Feminism is not that. Although some radical feminists may feel that way, the definition of a feminist is "the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political,...
