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!
I am a 64 yo white woman who did not vote for Trump but Hillary. Please don't put me in a category, a lot of us live in a red state. My answer is not written in anger, but just for your information. Peace to all. I am glad so many are so viligant about watching out for the American people.
Bryan-Charity Nance - Nobody said the CCP wasn't hypocritical, you see it doesn't matter what they actually do, just what they say that matters to SJWs.
I also shake my head at the irony of including ads touting "Super Boobs Sunday Party" and "Totally Nude until 4 AM" for various "Gentlemen's clubs" in the city.
So is this over-hyped hipster still stealing images from other social movements while casually appropriating the copy-written work of black artists?
I thought we were post-gender and post-racial.
Why not a CCP feminist superhero caricature based on a composite of Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal?
I am from James Island , but is San Antonio Tx. it looks very good. I come to Sol Legare when I come to my brother house.( Mr.Mungin )
Count on the City Paper to always spew, and justify, their form of White Guilt, racism, sexism, blah blah. It is a form of shaming and, as this election demonstrated, half the country (including the evil, privileged white women) got tired of it and voted. Not falling for your much hyped rhetoric where you are always the victim...
Why not use tax incentives to incentivize developers to build many thousands of tiny inexpensive apartments, so that poor people can afford to live here?
Why spend millions on displaying a pro-slavery flag? Why not just stick it in a corner somewhere?
Tom - Up until the recent ruling in May by the Supreme Court they were forced to provide funding through their insurers to their employees. My comments state "when they were forced to fund abortions". Religious persecution, and the real threat of it, doesn't disappear because you won a court case.
What about a mixed race woman? Preferably a woman descended from several races, so she could represent several races, not just whites.
White women, let the self-flagellation begin! You first, Jessie.
Yay! This is by far the best book club ever! The food is amazing, the books are complex and intriguing, the conversation is invigorating, and the camaraderie is not to be missed. Itinerant Literate and The Junction is a beautiful pairing.
Oh my God would you all get over yourselves!? It's a cartoonish, satirical, drawing that looks as much like you as it does me. That's how "super-hero/super-heroine" types look. Do you think Trump has such a trim waistline and muscular arms? No, but it's supposed to look like a comic book character.
This is what happens when Social Justice Warriors begin to turn on each other and it is the unfortunate but unavoidable product of finding fault in everything that anybody does.
A drawing of a WoC punching Trump would literally have given the image a much greater impact. They are the people most adversely affected by Trumpism and its vile blend of racism, classism and misogyny. No, a punch to the face is not "tasteful" but then, neither is systemic oppression!
Simon Jester, fifty-three percent of women did not vote for Trump, as you said. So 53% of women are not anti-women.
Foghorn Leghorn, the Little Sisters of the Poor are not being forced to fund abortion.
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.
Do we really think that if the white author depicted an African American female "super hero" punching Donald Trump it would've been more warmly welcomed? If anything, it seems that the whole concept should've been replaced with a more tasteful one.
