According to Merriam- Webster, the word hysterical means behavior exhibiting overwhelming or unmanageable fear or emotional excess. The etymology of the word hysterical comes from the Greek for womb. The Greeks believed that women suffered from a disorder of the womb that caused them to become crazy.
Watching the Women’s March that occurred surrounding the inauguration of Donald Trump, I think the Ancient Greeks were right.
First of all was this woman claiming that “We did the math and there’s literally not enough wine to get us through a Trump presidency.” Using alcohol to cope with emotional issues is a classic sign of a substance abuse problem. It’s not cute, it’s a debilitation. This woman needs help.
At the marches themselves, so much of what I saw from the Women’s March was just gross. In Los Angeles, women hung bras from trees. What was the message they were trying to send with that? I don’t know.
In D.C., women were sticking feminine hygiene pads with message written on them to walls. Just yuck.
The First Amendment says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. I have read some of the things written on the pads and I haven’t seen one that I would consider a redress of grievances that the the Government can address.
What the hell is the woman who stuck this up thinking? As a man, I think periods are gross. As a man, I believe that rape should be punishable by death and I completely support the right to concealed carry hoping that if a woman is attacked, she shoots and kills her rapist. Seeing as how in the US rape is punishable by time in prison and having a period is not, this makes no sense.
The vagina costumes were out in force. There was also sign after sign of fully illustrated female anatomy.
Again, not sure the the message here is supposed to be. Just yuck.
Of course, there were the pussyhats.
Here’s what I don’t get. Feminist women usually complain about the objectification and sexulization of women. Then they carry signs and protest in a way the focuses entirely on their sexual organs. “Don’t sexualize me, here’s my pussy!!!” I just can’t follow this train of though. “Respect me as a person, think about my vagina.” The hypocrisy here is incredible, and is giving me whiplash.
One of the common themes was the “Nasty Woman.” Nasty woman became a term of solidarity after Trump called Hillary a “nasty woman” during a debate.
Here’s the thing: It was well known that Hillary was abusive to her Secret Service detail and White House staff. It was well known that she was abusive to Bill Clinton both verbally and physically. She was in every way a classic domestic abuser with a sense of entitlement. It is known that she would call Bill’s campaign manager a “fucking Jew bastard.”
She is a terrible, entitled person. She is a domestic abuser. She treats subordinates with contempt. This is the “nasty woman” Trump was referring to. For women to claim this for solidarity is objectively terrible. Name me any other time women would stand in solidarity with a domestic abuser?
Where this hodge podge of inconsistent and contradictory messages really crosses the threshold for me is when it comes to “resistance.”
Ha ha, nope.
Nope. Gross, but nope.
Definitely nope. Still gross.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that since these women are overwhelmingly liberal, they are probably anti-Gun. Princess Leah was a warrior. She carried a blaster and she killed Stormtroopers. When you say something “has teeth” it means that it has the power to hurt you. The implication of the “pussy grabs back” is that force will be met with force.
Protesting and holding signs is not force. If “Trump is literally Hitler” do you think he would give a shit about some signs. No. His Brown Shirts would be out in force knocking the heads of those women with their signs. This is how I also know there is no war on women. If there was, they wouldn’t be allowed to march.
The Second Amendment exists because that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, that is done with guns. The Second Amendment is this nation’s ultimate reset button. It gives the citizenry the ability to meet force with force and combat tyranny.
That is why Princess Leah shot people.
At a personal level, the right to keep and bear arms gives every person the ability to defend themselves, to repel assault, to (again) meet force with force.
These gun control loving, gun free zone promoting can’t me force with force. They can’t repel an assault. They routinely criticize and mock gun owners for calling themselves a safeguard against tyranny, since the military will defeat us in a day. They call us insurrectionists for even thinking that it is our right to defend ourselves against a despotic government
We consider a standard combat load 180 rounds. For them it is 140 characters. Their call for resistance s a joke. Their threats are empty. They have no teeth. They gave theirs up and want to pull ours.
This march was an embarrassment. It was a gross cacophony of hypocrisy and confusing messages.
I think the message of this march could best be described by Shakespeare: Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
