No, first of all, I said nothing about being "pro abortion". I said that one of -- and that is only one of -- the guiding principles for the march was reproductive freedom.
I did assume that a pro-lifer would be happy with the Trump presidency, and that maybe is wrong. However, should they march against other of Trump's policies, why would they want to do it under a pro-life banner? It makes no sense.
If you are objecting to his immigration policies, for example, or his environmental policies, or if you simply want to stand with the LGBTQIA community, why do you need your pro-life placard??
I have seen many women comment about the march being about unifying women. If so, why does this not include women who are pro life? I am not arguing pro life or pro abortion, but singling out a group and saying this march need not apply to them is a bit of a stretch.
You could argue it was the media or how things were portrayed, but at face value the march very much seems like a pro abortion march, with a few other issues sprinkled in (not downplaying any of it, just pointing out what I have seen via media coverage and speaking to others).
You want to protest the choice for education, I have no issues with. However, that is an issue that seems to have been swallowed up in this march (and probably more effective to have a march/protest dedicated to that), in particular since it has nothing to do with gender.
I have seen women comment that they are protesting the wage gap and their rights. Well, not gonna start that debate, there are some who believe in the wage gap and there are others who believe it does not exist. In terms of rights, it is against the law to discriminate employment, so there are laws in place to protect everyone. Whether or not wage discrimination still occurs, that is up for debate (nor do I think it makes sense to have that debate in this thread).
Let me clarify as well, I have zero issues with any march or protest. That is each person's right. I don't believe the message of what this march was about was entirely clear (why I have seen many people even asking what the purpose of the march was about). When one of the clear messages is it was about women uniting but then it is stated that women with certain beliefs need not apply, I see that as hypocritical. When women like Madonna are being treated like the champion of feminism (the person who basically implied a terrorist act of blowing up the white house, who stated, whether serious or not she would offer bjs to anyone who voted for Hillary, but I guess you can look past the bad and only focus on the good), it makes me scratch my head. When signs are being passed around about "Freeing Melania" as if she is some sort of hostage, I scratch my head as what does that have to do with this march. So yes, I do believe the march was meant to address a slew of issues / concerns. Do I think it was particularly effective in doing so beyond the pro abortion stance, no. Just my opinion and what I have gotten from others I have spoken to. Naturally you may feel completely opposite, which is perfectly fine.
