He might not have started a feminist wave but he sure should start a South Carolina taxpayer backlash. Take a look

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

Such nonsense. If anything, Trump is the best possible leader for American women. While they are preoccupied with silly issues like "manspreading" and "free-bleeding" and bathrooms for transsexuals, meanwhile the REAL issues creep up on women like Syrian men organizing flash-mobs to gang-rape women in the cultural rite called "taharrush gamea". Trump is your greatest guarantee against these real problems. Don't let all of the U.S. be a repeat of Cologne, Germany on New Year's Eve 2015.

I am a woman and I and my daughters voted for Hillary. I know some of these other woman who voted for Trump and they lack an education!

Simon Jester, fifty-three percent of women did not vote for Trump, as you said. So 53% of women are not anti-women.

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

To even vaguely equate the aftermath of the AME Church shootings to the post-election blues is disgusting beyond belief. Does the liberal echo chamber, that is apparently the readership of the Charleston City Paper, have no shame? News flash: more than half of the voters in South Carolina (and the US for that matter) woke up Nov. 9 not with your shared sense of unfounded dread and despair, but with a renewed hope for America and the return of common sense over Political Correctness and an end to the Progressive agenda running amok. It might help if you actually talk with people who do not share your collective worldview before alienating half of the Charleston population.

Also, the Tea Party movement started while George W. Bush was in office. It had nothing to do with President Obama, except for the fact that he continued to spend our country into bankruptcy (doubling the National Debt). That, after all, is what the TEA Party movement was protesting. Taxed Enough Already.

Third, I think it's important for women to be involved in politics. It's not a "man-only" arena, but this "march" on Washington is really protesting the wrong problem. If women are upset about the election results, it's not Donald Trump's fault. They should look in the collective mirror. Fifty-three percent of women didn't vote for Trump. If they had, Hillary would be President-elect. Are 53% of all women "anti-women"? I don't think so. Perhaps Hillary was simply a flawed candidate. I'd bet Bernie Sanders supporters have a few things to say about that.

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

@factoryconnection, I completely agree with you. What I noticed, with no insult intended, is that it seems all of these women, including Stephanie, have been out of school for longer they were in it. I don't see anyone college-aged in the group. Let's hope that they can find a way to motivate the younger slacktivists.

The right to terminate a fetus up until birth and an electing a corrupt pay-for-play female for president.

Sounds like a winning formula. :)

Kudos to these women for turning away from slacktivism toward action. Strike while the iron is hot!

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

I hate the attitude that if you are a woman you must vote for Hilary. Who cares whether or not you go along with her politics or how she conducts herself. She is a woman. You are a woman. Therefore you must vote for her.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

I'll have to agree with this article completely. Dylan Roof, no doubt has been miseducated, as well as under educated, but it doesn't excuse his actions. Information is like a two edge sword, and we now have an abundance of it. Some information is good and some is not. Each and everyone of us have to selectively learn to choose, from our sorce of information wisely.
