"Real Women Don't March"

“Real Women Don’t March!”

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” Desmond Tutu

If what Desmond Tutu says is true, and who would better know, and those who say nothing about injustice have chosen the side of the oppressor, then what can be said about those people who openly support injustice?

Specifically, I refer to those posts by women, who are critical of the Women’s Marches. These are women who are openly disdainful of those who marched, because “I am a responsible adult who has to pay bills.”

Huh? Women who marched are not responsible women who pay bills?

Or how about the meme that depicts women in uniform, marching? “This is how real women march to make a difference.” 

Real women?

So Stage IV cancer patients, who happen to be women, who are severely impacted by the new tyrannical regime, and who marched to protest, are not real women?

I am appalled at women’s inhumanity to women. If a man posted that, he would-and should-be properly lambasted. But women do it with impunity? 

If it sounds as though I am taking it personally, and that I am one of those easily offended liberals, then great success. I do take it personally because it impacts me greatly, that so many critical areas that affect the health and welfare of the most vulnerable people in this country-elders and kids-are being hammered into oblivion.

Health-care benefits, Planned Parenthood, Social Security, environmental atrocities, immorality, white supremacy, misogyny, bigotry, greed, hypocrisy, irresponsibility (Betsy Vross for director of education) and just plain dishonesty, are all components of the new regime.
The caption says, "This is how real
women march to make a difference.

If you are so complacent in your existence that you cannot see out of your insulated life, that millions of your sisters (and brothers) are hurting, both on the outside and on the inside, then you need to learn the definition of the word “compassion.”

It’s an old fashioned concept for feeling bad that others, less fortunate, are suffering. If you cannot recognize that you are lucky to have escaped poverty, misery and depression, then that’s sad. But know, nonetheless, whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, that millions upon millions of people are hurting.

If you can’t figure this out on your own, at least have the decency to not criticize them for doing what they feel they have to do, in order to survive.
