    Without getting into any of the political aspects of the march, what upset me was the language or gross signs that some of the women were carrying or being dressed up as a vagina, REALLY? It just made them look silly. They went for the shock value which, in my mind anyway, does absolutely nothing for their cause. I also saw pictures of women with their young children and those kids were carrying signs with the foulest language or images. What a dreadful example to set. It doesn't matter if the kids were too young to understand, the point is they did it. What wonderful parenting.

    Personally I think that march was about Trump becoming the president, and Hillary not... and I honestly don't understand it. We had an election, and yeah some people don't like him, and again some people can't stand Hilary. Bottom line is... get out and VOTE!!

    Also what women's rights have been taken away since he's become president?!! The way that I personally see it women & the LGBT community here in the US have it a HELL of a lot better than other countries in the world. How about going to Afghanistan/Iraq or over in India?!! Why wasn't the march about them and the countries where atrocities occur daily against women/young girls/LGBT?!!
    you are right, @ddnene They also had the freedom to clean up their own MESS,but I guess that would be "degrading".

    I marched on Saturday, I met Margaret Atwood, it was a pretty incredible experience. I also took my sign home with me
    I don't have an issue w/women marching... march away BUT don't assume that ALL women agree, and at least clean up the carnage.

    I read your attached article... and all I can say is WOW! Lots of assumptions made by the author, who seems to know everyone's "story". This woman has NO clue how I was raised or what my journey has been about... once again NOT speaking for me.

    And I would also like to add that some of the celebrities and their "speeches"... especially Madonna. Nobody gives two HOOTS what you think, so keep your opinions to yourself.

    Just a friendly reminder... share your thoughts and opinions, but if this turn dark/ugly -- i will remove the thread.

    There is enough trash talk on Facebook... not going to allow it to intrude on helping and enjoying our bully babies.

    Peace, love and Bulldogs!!!
