I’m inspired by all of the individuals who participated in today’s Women’s March. Much love and admiration to the people who got involved and/or supported.
I’m perturbed by the people (especially women) who seem to feel the need to come at the protesters on social media. Whether these naysayers support the farce-in-chief, or just choose not to support the cause, I cannot understand the need they feel to actively attack. What is it about their personal politics that makes them so passionate about denouncing people whose only goal and demand is that all people be treated equally? I guess that is a rhetorical question, because I will never “get” people of that political leaning, nor would I ever want to.
I listen to this one radio show from Georgia, where the host is always making a big deal of making himself out to be sort of neutral regarding this current political climate, because he doesn’t want to alienate listeners. He also has a tendency to play the “dumb guy” card when he’s being sexist, but in general he has a pretty progressive team, so I expect better from him.
Quite frankly, I have more respect for public figures who own their opinions and stand up for what they believe, regardless of the public fallout. Especially in a political climate like this one. Not saying he needs to harp on his personal opinions. Just own it if you bring it up, instead of straddling the fence in a pathetic attempt to keep all the fans onboard.
These days, as far as I’m concerned, American politics are black and white enough that, assuming you have any clue what is going on, you can either be on the right side of history, or the wrong side. Time will tell.
