Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

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...

Re: “Proposed changes could increase workforce housing requirements in Charleston

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?

Re: “The Agenda: MUSC board spending not illegal; 50,000 expected at Clemson parade; Could Trump curb REAL ID?

Why spend millions on displaying a pro-slavery flag? Why not just stick it in a corner somewhere?

Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

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.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

What about a mixed race woman? Preferably a woman descended from several races, so she could represent several races, not just whites.

Re: “Itinerant Literate pairs with local restaurants for a book club and pop-up series

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.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

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.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

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!

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

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