What will that march be advocating for?

Are any of the talking heads talking about that as the reason for this huge turnout, rather than some amorphous set of "rights" that differ depending on who you ask?


WGAF what a talking head has to say on any subject? They're paid ideologues. Their opinion is < feces >.

It's about "rights", again.

The right to assemble and the freedom of speech do not require predetermined statements of clarification.

It's unsurprising that a group of people who make up roughly half the population of the United States wouldn't have a unified message as to what "rights" means to them.

Just as there are some men here who subscribe to the /r/theredpill.

+10.

What exactly are they protesting? That he is a shameless sleazy womanizer? That has been already determined, proven, debated. In the end it didn't matter one bit.

Reproductive rights, for example, have been in republican crosshairs for decades, and now they have the presidency and both houses of congress, with an opportunity to replace another radical conservative (borderline racist) supreme court justice. If you don't see this as a primary and direct threat to women's rights, I can't help you.

Okay I am jumping in.

Hmmm women's rights that included the women terminated in abortion?

Oh never mind they are blobs and hmmm less protected than baby dolphins, the delta smelt and spotted owls.

Ok never mind they are not women they are unborn somethings?

I am so greatful that my prochoice mother gave me the precious gift of life
so that I could protest in the street on either side; because I am alive. Seems as if every one of these rapid pro abortion women were given the precious gift of life by their mothers. Those mean mothers.

I usually will enjoy debating pro choice folks because I can also hook them in with this question;
"Do you know WHY you are Pro Choice?" Most will take the hook and say "Why?" I then look them in the eyes and calmly say "Beacause YOU are alive and YOUR mother gave you the gift of life" Some take a moment and ponder this; others not so much. None argue that my statement is not true.

Sorry J I couldn't resist.

Oh yes there was no hate speech there either?

Has Madona been arrested yet for her comments? Well seems the new elected president is being somewhat tolerant would the gents and auxiallry agree to that? If anyone else made those statements??

Havalu, it appears that you're making the argument that people who get pregnant are morally obligated to have the child. Do you really want to have that conversation?

Because my next question would be, then what? And my next observation would be, that's a much easier stance to take when the burden to do the actual raising of the child isn't on you. Hypothetically speaking.
If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.
