Someone struggled for our right to vote, to hold public office, to control our own bodies, to access to birth control, to higher education, to work at "men's" jobs, to equal pay for equal work, to own property, the list goes on & on. Take nothing for granted!
I keep hearing people talk about supporting our troops, "support the troops!" Only 9% of Americans showed up to vote in the primaries. Here's an idea, how about showing up for what our troops have fought and died for, our right to vote. We're no longer a democracy because we dropped the ball and failed to show up but we can fix that by voting for the only candidate who isn't beating the war drums, Jill Stein.
This picture illustrates feminism, because it significantly draws back to the past in which women were not allowed to participate in voting, or any political aspects that could change their society. However, although women now participate in voting during elections, there have been discrimination concerning women occupying political seats. This is because females are deemed unfit to handle such level of power and authority.
"As a white man, I finally now feel safe in America." -Scott Greer. Seriously? Because there've been so many laws made restricting white people's right to vote, right to marry, right to adopt, right to make their own medical decisions, and white people get harsher sentences than people of other races for the exact same crimes? Oh wait...
This is such an important point. Since Trump's election, I have read so many comments to the tune of "this is all the fault of identity politics! White men just got so sick of being blamed for everything, and that's why we voted for a racist, sexist fraud!" Maybe if people talking about their problems upsets you, you should, I dunno, examine your own behaviour to see why.
