3. That's kind of a bullshit way to look at it...

It's not a zero sum game. As the old saying goes, "White people tend to racism because they don't want POC to treat them like they have treated POC all these years."

Problem is, that is not what POC-and in this case, women-actually want. At least not in my experience.

POC and women, by and large, want to be treated as equals, as real citizens with equal protections and opportunities.

I know it's kind of subtle for the average Trumplodyte/Tea Partier to understand. I'd advise them to grow up, adults usually don't have problems with a bit of subtlety when looking at complex issues.

I do look forward to the changes, but statements like the above (by Deutsch) only promote fear.
