Women ain't taking shit no more, and it is making a lot of men uncomfortable.

I think its fucking awesome.

I can see the changes in the confidence and attitudes of my two young daughters from even a few years ago. Its a fucking paradigm shift.

3. Yes it is a paradigm shift

You're witnessing the beginning of a swing to STRONG female ascendancy. And I predict it won't stop for decades, until parity is a reality, tho there may be some pushback and that could get serious at times.

7. We have to work to keep it going.

Susan Faludiís book Backlash (pub in the early 90s) did a great job of showing how the stronger women get, the stronger the pushback. It will definitely happen again.

Time for a matriarchal society is right. Historically, it took a woman to teach men to act like men when they were all cowards.

20. History has been patriarchical. But prehistory was matriarchical.

Look at the Venus of Waldorf and other fertility symbols of feminine power. We have a chance for parity now and Iím glad to see that the culture is changing to accomodate it.

24. My response to your subject line would be "Well that's just TOO DAMN BAD."

TOO DAMN BAD.

This isn't the 50s and we aren't living "Mad Men."

Times have changed. We're in a new era - where women deserve to be believed when they have stories of battery, abuse, degradation, molestation, and other assorted cruelty to tell. The "just lie back and enjoy it" days are OVER! Unless, of course, we start turning that around on the offending men. Upset about this, dude? Don't like it that I blew the whistle on you and you lost your gig? Well, honey, lie back and enjoy it, then. That's what you predatory misogynistic bullying men/bosses/priests/ministers/counselors/Bible-thumpers have always told us women. Here - now YOU have some!

I've always been kinda fond of the "taste of their own medicine. See how they like it" approach, in cases like these.

29. Preach it!!!

I am absolutely reveling in seeing women realize how powerful they are. I'm part of the Second Wave of feminism and we will no longer allow the Rush Limpballs of the world to denigrate that term. I have never shirked from calling myself a feminist and I'm proud to be one. We still have a ways to go, so let's keep the momentum going. We need our federal offices to be at least 51% women - and not just women like the Repukes put out there (Palin, Bachman, Conway, DeVos, etc.). We need more Tammy Duckworths and Nancy Pelosis and yes, Hillary Clintons!!!

The warmongers and greedy bastards need to step aside and get out of our way. You've screwed things up long enough.

36. The vast majority of us don't. And I have some compassion for those who do.

Mind you, I don't approve or like it, but there are reasons. Not excuses, but reasons. Men and women alike buy into his false promises, and some feel so powerless as women they only think they can have power by associating with men who do. It takes time and the slow evolution of society for some women to naturally think of themselves as capable and self-sufficient. It's been a long road.

45. I made a

mistake and mixed up Trump winning the majority of white women voters with women overall. Still very disturbing a bunch of women from one racial group could have been that stupid to vote for a guy who disrespects them and is outwardly sexist. As a minority I can't respect that considering Trump made it obvious he hated minorities and as result he could not win minorities whereas White women were more than willing to put up with his abuse. Yes you are right the majority of men who are White voted for Trump. I'm an Indian American male who was born in this country and I did not vote for Trump just like the majority of men of color who didn't vote for him.

52. I was gob smacked when I read that 53% of white women voted for this vulgar man.

I read a recent article on it. Wish I'd bookmarked it. But it said that they basically vote with their spouse/SO because they identify their personal well as being tied to the spouse/SO. We like to think that all those racists who marched in Charlotte don't have many women in their lives, but they do. The ladies just knew that that wasn't their place. But there are dozens of accounts, online, of badly behaved white women in retail stores, calling out loudly & obnoxiously, to darker skinned people, telling them to go back to their country. My friend saw it at a local Target & we live in a very progressive community. It's a sad state, this country, but considering our beginnings, is anyone surprised? I'm going to go off topic & say that I think a big part of the climate denial movement is mostly powerful white men refusing to believe/admit that it is their predatory/patriarchy ways that are about to destroy everything. It's hard not to be consumed with loathing toward them.

On a lighter note...



Love that it's a white man objecting!

What I like the best is that there's a generation of girls (9-15) who are not old enough to vote but very woke. I guarantee you that most girls marching at women's marches will be voting as soon as they turn 18.

I sell pussyhats. I've had several girls come up to me and thank me for what I'm doing and telling me they can't wait to vote. Most are around 10.

men would engineer women to be compliant. They thought the whole thing was just a joke.

The next generation isn't at all inclined to judge according to gender, lifestyle, race, or even nationality.
