Women to march against Trump.

Recommended Posts

Well, it looks like a bunch of women from around the world have decided to get together by the thousands and are going to start a march demonstration against Trump. Why? What will it prove? Personally, nothing. The march is suppose to show and tell Trump that he dare not try to take away women's rights and protections. Personally, I don't think that Trump had any plans to do such a thing. Also racism, immigration and gay rights were a part of the march. I think that this march is just another attack against Trump by the Soros loser democrats, and their constant efforts of trying to get Trump somehow removed from his Presidency. It ain't going to work ladies. All your time,effort and money just made others richer.

I can understand if it were just American women marching against Trump, but why Canadian women? What business is it of theirs as to what goes on in America? Do they somehow think that they can change or do anything about what Trump may do? Surely, here in Canada there must be some things more important too march against? But I guess not. They obviously like the way this country is going down the tubes. Personally, I think most women are too emotional and a bit foolish, and probably too politically correct, and who can be easily brainwashed into believing that all this march is about is women's right even though the march might not have anything to do with their rights at all. Where in Canada are women's rights and protections being attacked? And I can just see that after the big march is over, and that they now put the fear in Trump they all then will do what women like to do best and that is go shopping. Then later they will have something to eat, sit down, and tell themselves that they just made a big difference for women's rights. What a waste of time and effort and money, and all for nothing. Aw well.

The Canadian women are worried that they won't be able to jump in the car and cross the border for a quickie abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic...then go shopping at the mall.

Much easier to get that "quickie abortion" here. Especially depending on the state you are going to do the shopping  im.

What the hell, man? Trump should tweet out a message telling those women to get back to the kitchen and make him a sandwich!

Those were the good old days. Men screwed themselves big time when they allowed women to vote. Being married it looks like I am going to have to go make my own sandwich now, and wait for my wife to return from her march in Washington. Thanks guys. :D 

PS: Please don't tell her I said that. :)

Ya, with the exchange rate as high as it is. Buy Canadian, and eliminate your unborn fetus here in Canada. :D

Just remember, Trump won White Women. 

So what, why do people keep saying that?  American women come in all colours.  Let's drill down further on the way women voted:

  •  Clinton won female voters by 12 points and lost male voters to Trump by 11 points
  • Trump won the white women vote by 53 percent overall. 
  •  Trump’s success is specifically among white women without college degrees, 61 percent of whom voted for him.
  • Clinton actually did 7 points better than Trump with white college-educated women.
  • Clinton won female voters by 12 points and lost male voters to Trump by 11 points, creating the largest gender gap in a presidential election since 1972
  • Nationally, Clinton picked up 54 percent of women voters compared with Trump’s mere 42 percent.
  • Among college-educated voters, more than 90 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton
  • 95 percent of black women voters without a college degree also voted for her
  • She performed similarly with Hispanic women and nonwhite women.

Just saying. This sentiment that Women are putting up a massive united front in opposition to Trump is a false narrative. Plenty of women voted for him. 

People can criticize Trump but criticizing Trump voters is a Fool's Errand. That Baskets of Deplorables remark by Hilary was probably way more damning than anything Russia did.

The march wasn't intended to criticize Trump voters.  It was to put Trump on notice that millions of voters want to be governed, among other things, by equality.

And plenty of women voted for Hillary:

Less educated white women.

Ahhh so we're parsing which women count now. Less educated minority women didn't go for Trump.

Millions of women worldwide marched the day after the Inauguration and it seems the Trump administration paid no attention.  They have reinstated the 'Global Gag Rule' which bans recipients of U.S. foreign aid from offering abortion-related services.  In order to continue to receive funding, they must stop offer abortions and abortion-related services.  

This represents a huge step backward for women all over the world.  Unsafe abortions will increase, women seeking treatment as the result of unsafe abortions will be turned away ,young pregnant girls in third world countries will have no where to turn.

If a clinic refuses to abide by the Global Gag rule, they not only lose u.s. funding, but donated contraceptives and 'Cutting-edge leadership and technical expertise, which is predominantly provided by the U.S. international family planning program within USAID'.

Yep, great progress for women.  Thanks Trump for harming women's health all over the world.

About the same business when America attacks another country to get at its oil.

President Trump is not responsible for the "reproductive health" (wink - wink) of women worldwide.   Trump just reinstated an existing U.S. policy.

If Canadian women want to support abortions around the world....then they can pay for it.

Why do women want to have abortions so bad?

That is the whole point.   Women don't.  

But they also don't want a bunch of old, white men telling them what they can and cannot do.

Basically, it is as simple as that.

 

It is too bad that medical records are so meticulously protected.   It is not beyond the realm of possibility that,  of all those white men in the Oval Office, that some one in there had a family member that has had an abortion.

So why is Trump responsible for abortions rights around the world ?   Abortion was illegal in a majority of the world long before Trump came along, and is still illegal in many nations.

Why bother with any humanitarian efforts?

 

Abortions are the opposite of humanitarian.   I ask again...why is Trump being held responsible for abortions rights around the world ?
