Question about the Woman's March.
I first want to say that I am a supporter of gender equality. I also understand that many people America and the world are afraid of the future of the United States and angry with our new president. However, I don't understand what the purpose, intent, or end state of the march is? Please believe me when I say that I am in no way trying to bash the event or its participants. I just want to better understand what it is that they are trying to accomplish. I actually want to help but I am unsure of exactly where this movement is going and what feminists are hoping to accomplish. I understand that they are trying to protect woman's rights and equality but I just don't understand how protesting a president who has only been in office for two days is going to change anything. Is the purpose simply for awareness?

It started out as a women's march, but it actually ended up exponentially larger as all kinds of people who fear being disadvantaged under Trump took to peaceful protesting.

The point is to let Trump know what the people are thinking and worrying about, and that many do not approve of his behavior.

Besides, it's about time someone told him that grabbing the pussy of a random woman is not ok.

I understand, it is never acceptable to sexually assault anyone. But wasn't all of this discussed prior to the election? Yet Trump won the election despite all the objections. So how is voicing outrage after the election going to do anything to change the results of the election?

It won't but maybe it till spur more people to vote in two years after seeing who is following tRump's lead in Congress. Those elections seem to be overlooked, by and large. And it may also cause more people to vote in the next presidential election so that we don't seat someone else who treats women and minorities so horribly.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

That seems understandable. I guess it is no different than the tea party movement.

It's not—of course—going to change the outcome of the election per se, but the intent of the marches is to show Drumpf that "the people" don't like what he's proposing to do with the US's domestic, and external affairs, and just as importantly that people all over the globe are sharing this dislike. Even here in Australia, a gazillion miles from the US, 20,000 people marched in our capital cities.

And bear in mind that Clinton got 2.9 million more primary votes than Drumpf, which is a far more accurate picture of the people's true wishes. It was solely because of the antiquated Electoral College system that Drumpf won.

It's really immaterial when Drumpf said of attractive women he'd "grab 'em by the pussy"—it's more the fact that this is the way the orange grub thinks of women in general. And remember too that he's been married three times, and he's old enough to be his current wife, Melanija's father.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Actually, it is often compared to that. And it may well end up being a progressive part of the democrats. Eventually.

Ahem, I have been married three times. Also been older than each husband. It doesn't make me disrespectful toward men. The number of his marriages doesn't concern me, nor does the age of the wives. They weren't forced into marriage.

But the majority voted against him. Drinking Beverage

In two years, the Republicans will lose both houses of Congress.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

It just means you probably look darn good for your age. Wink
