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: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

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.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

I appreciate this perspective and wish I'd spent some time in my story discussing the lack of people of color in these meetings and events I attended. Diversity and inclusivity were topics I explored in my interviews because all of these groups were indeed overwhelmingly white privileged women. And there were discussions at these meetings about checking privilege, reaching out, and finding those organizations and people who've already been hard at work fighting for social and racial justice. But the story of white women of privilege, who've taken their rights for granted, waking up to the very real fear of progress rolling back has been spontaneous and interesting. Infusing the trenches with new blood can only help create momentum and get women of all persuasions to the table where important decisions are currently being made by old white men.

Re: “The Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier's new Pier 101 restaurant will be a nod to the old Pavilion

Sounds like pretty much the same kinds of things that Locklears served. Hope it's good.
