The saddest thing about these “revelations” about the Women’s March is that all this drama, all this talk, all this ranting, all this grandiosity led to absolutely nothing whatsoever but a bunch of women wasting a couple of hours by walking around in weird hats. If instead of all this vapid bickering over nothing they had a bake sale and used the proceeds to buy art and gym supplies for the ten poorest schools in the DC area or knitted hats and scarves for the homeless, that would be something.
I know several women who went to the local march in STL and they kept asking why I wasn’t going. But it seemed so self-indulgent and pompous that I didn’t see the point. I liked the anti-war protests of 2003 but those had a clear goal. We were against war. What was the WM against? Dumb jokes about pussies? An electoral result we didn’t like? Made no sense to me.
But it’s no revelation that there is bigotry amongst all groups, including the super-duper progressives.
