But it’s not JUST a war on women. It’s on everyone who isn’t overflowing with entitlements, and it’s largely being waged by white men, who seek to perpetuate male and white supremacy.
You are either actively on the side of the oppressed, or the oppressor. And if you’re silent, you’re with the oppressor.
Let’s up our game for justice and dignity:
“Last night, as the news swarmed online, a friend texted me: ‘There’s a war out there against us.’
“I think she’s right. I think there is a war. I think we’ve been fighting it for some time. I think it’s reached a breaking point.
“This war is not about men and women. This war is about those who believe people of all races, cultures, sexes, genders, classes, and religions deserve kindness and respect, and those who don’t. We have to speak out, for ourselves and for each other.”
How can you tell that America is suffering from a vast, intense, rageful male backlash against feminism?
How can you tell men are struggling brutally hard to hold onto their entitlements?
[And don’t be too complacent Canadian men; are we really different?]
Well, while this electoral analysis can’t actually manifest next month, when we look at what would happen if only men or only women voted for president next month, you’ll see what I’m talking about. Read, soak this in, close your gaping jaw and get busy seeking social peace and reconciliation!
The wise, inspiring folks at One Million Vaginas have done it again, helping reframe Trump’s attempt to disempower women into an empowerment meme.
Feel free to sprinkle these hashtags as well!
#GrabHimByTheBallot #NeverTrump #RapeCulture #SexualAssault
So please, all my American friends/readers, and all YOUR American friends, help the world out by grabbing November 8th by the ballot:
- Don’t vote for Trump.
- Don’t vote for Republicans, who have brutally disrespected women for far too long.
- If you’re living where a Democracy for America [Bernie Sanders] endorsed candidate is running, support them.
Because it’s 2016…and we still have lots of work to do to fuck the patriarchy.
Lean in! 🙂
