So What Is This Upcoming March About?

I am not really sure what the march (or marches, since this is nationwide) is supposed to achieve. I am concerned that it will not be seen as serious.

I may go to the local one in Ashland Saturday, but I am wary it will be like the "occupy" protests that were nothing except pet issues like marijuana or trans crap.

At least this article got the Miss America protests right:

Yet because the idea of a burning bra was so lurid, it eclipsed the fact that in the 1960s, women couldn’t get a credit card without a husband’s signature, couldn’t serve on juries in all 50 states, weren’t allowed to study at some of the nation’s Ivy League schools, couldn’t get a prescription for birth control pills if they were unmarried, were paid 59 cents for every dollar that men earned and could easily be fired from a job if they got pregnant. Among other outrages.

Feminists were people who fought those inequalities. But thanks to a stunt, they’ve been called bra-burners for decades. Even Betty Friedan, author of “The Feminine Mystique” and mother of the movement, objected to what she called the “bra-burning, anti-man, politics-of-orgasm school” of feminism.

Sorry, knitters. I know the pink hats with pussycat ears y’all are knitting for next week’s march are totally clever and cute and fun. They’re a smart and snarky middle finger to the incoming predator in chief, who somehow managed to win the presidency despite openly bragging about grabbing women by their genitals.

The organizers should have just not bothered with the pink hat shit. Women have a problem as it is being taken seriously.

We really don't need this shit.

It sounds like a group of those goofy "third-wave" "feminists" put this together.
