Do you understand the Women's March?

If so, please explain it. I've read a couple of articles and even watched MSNBC. I still don't understand what rights are under attack or what the message is.

As far as I can tell, it's a movement in search of a cause.

It's just more virtue signaling by fat unattractive people who suck at everything in life. There are no "rights" in danger at all. More useful idiots who can't think for themselves.

My niece is at the Million Vagina March in D.C. My daughter asked me this morning, "Why is she marching, don't women already have rights Dad?" Meh, at least they're not burning shit down like the anarchist's yesterday I support their 1st Amendment rights as long as they don't try to screw with my rights under the 2nd Amendment.

It is just a Dem rally disguised as a women's rights march.

It's also a great reminder of how awesome my wife is: "This women's march bs is taking over fb. I'm gonna stay off it today. Barf."

Many women are concerned about the future of women's rights and are upset by the President's attitude to, and treatment of, women.

I saw a sign that reads, "make them pay for razors if we have to pay for tampons."

I have 3 sisters who traveled to DC, they're all worked up about the election.

They've allowed it to infect their relations with family, which I can't abide. Funny thing is, the oldest sister is trying to put forth the narrative that my one sister who voted for Trump is "tearing the family apart", when in fact the only people causing problems are those who voted for Hillary.

Par for the course, pawn your own behavior off on somebody else and then accuse them of being responsible for it all.

If you really want to understand what the 'march' is all about, look no further, from the New York Times, of all places:

Billionaire George Soros has ties to more than 50 ‘partners’ of the Women’s March on Washington

As I, and others, have said -- get ready for 4 years of this stuff. I suspect it will be nonstop. The last 8 years have allowed for the unchecked metastasis of the liberal mental illness afflicting the planet, and now that there is a threat to the repeal of some policies fundamental to their goals -- the little Goa'uld parasite inside of all of them is having a shit fit. All being helped out by the wonderful Nazi-collaborator we have become so familiar with.

I read this homemade sign that reads: If men could get pregnant birth control and abortion would be safe & affordable & a holy sacrament. (Plenty of capitalization and cramped wording.)

So, three things come to mind.

1) We wouldn't need women anymore.
2) The same issues would continue to exist regarding birth control and abortion.
3) Now men would become hormonal once a month and have hemorrhage cycle.

On the plus side, the embarrassment of buying tampons at the grocery store would be gone.

?

Has anyone else noticed that most of the women protesting for rights to abortion would be hard pressed to find a man who would want to impregnate them?
