Re: Womens March

The crew was 2 males and 3 females...the inauguration kinda slowed down some punch-list activities...so they time to kill...from what they told me...it was more like mass confusion...or a political movement ran by the naked guy at the rave.

Re: Womens March

We live in the country so my wife, daughters, and I did not attend a rally. In most areas it appeared to go quite well. I'm sorry we missed it.

Re: Womens March

I brought my daughter along with me. My father was a union leader back in our native country so I got my passion for activism from him. I would not have missed such a historic event. I want to teach my daughter that she has a voice and should stand up for her beliefs. We had a great time.

And hardly anything offends me. Any particular reason you asked me this question?

Re: Womens March

I didn't go, but I considered it. I've lived in the DC metro area for the last 13 years, and when you live here, you develop an aversion for protests and marches, because they happen all the time and they sometimes really **** with your everyday life, especially when one happens on a work day. And honestly, I was a little scared of violence-prone Trump supporters showing up, but that turned out to not be a problem.

I did go to the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear back whenever that was, and that will probably be the only rally/march I'll go to.

{Moderator Note: I spelled out the profanity. Please follow forum rules in regards to the profanity filter.

8. Filter Bypass/Obscenity: A profanity filter is in place and any attempts to bypass it are forbidden. You MAY type words that are filtered, as long as they are not abusive towards other quests or violate any other rules; however, you must allow the filter to do its job. Do NOT try to filter the word yourself and do not try to use creative spelling to bypass the profanity filter. Also, posting images of videos of obscene gestures, linking to obscene web sites, posting obscene or graphic descriptions of a decidedly adult nature, and violating a standard of decent behavior is not allowed.

February 21st is the deadline for full enforcement of the measure.

Re: Womens March

There is no way that I would attend such marches, where they had vile speakers, promoted killing babies among other awful things, demonstrated against a democratically elected world leader and generally didn't act in a ladylike fashion at all. They didn't represent the normal average hardworking ladies/mothers/wives, and only a very very tiny percentage went.
I dont know anyone who went or who would want to go, and women in the west are equal anyway so they have NOTHING to complain about.

Re: Womens March

I thought the messages were numerous and very disorganized, and when narrowed down to the crux of the matter, I think that entire march was mainly a pro-abortion march.

Where I marched there was no talk about killing babies. I am a pretty average mother who holds a full time job.

Re: Womens March

Anyone here know who organized that march? It's enlightening to discover what this woman really thinks, especially about other women who disagree with her.
