Women’s March Greatest Threat to Free Expression

America’s whitest, loudest, (and dare I say biggest) snowflakes congregated in cities all over the country on January 21. Just one day after Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. To protest what? We do not know. At first glance one might think “women’s issues” (whatever that means), moved on to killing babies, then they discussed gay rights, and then talked about racism, and finally ended on calling President Donald Trump a Nazi (original).

As one can easily figure out this march was politically charged. It had no real purpose but to whine and protest the newly elected President. There was no single common goal, there was no discussion of how to fix these goals, just malcontents complaining about how America did not decide to have it their way (mind you, America had been doing “their way” for eight years and saw little progress).

First off, no matter what you have been told, women do not make 77 cents to a man’s dollar for equal work. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2015 report, the average woman’s take home pay is 83 percent of that of a man. On the surface, that’s a big problem, but with a few control factors, that gap is quickly wiped away. For example, the average woman works between 36 to 38 hours per week, as opposed to the average man who works between 42 to 44 hours per week. On a 40 hour work week that’s between a 10 to 20 percent increase. Keeping pay fair, that means a man should make between 10 to 20 percent more than women on average. That doesn’t even take into consideration the types of jobs that women usually take as opposed to men. Throughout the country, women tend to choose jobs that allow them to stay close to home, have more flexible schedules, and do not require much travel or risk. Typically, these types of jobs have higher paychecks attached because of the added inconvenience, risk, and stress involved. On top of all of this, Time Magazine ran a study in 2010 that found, in the 50 largest cities in America, when job title, marital status, education, and experience is kept equal, women are paid 108 percent of what men make. Think what you will, but basic statistics wipe away the myth of a gender wage gap very quickly.  

What you also will not hear from the leftist media is that out of every 100 occupational fatalities, 93 of them are men. Following the same logic these demonstrators propose, would they also support making sure an equal amount of female workers die to males? Would they strive to insure a complete balance of occupation related deaths in the name of equality? No, because that is absurd, but demanding an employer to pay a women an equal amount to her male counterpart even though she worked less and has less experience is quite the advantage all over a mere difference in reproductive organs. Or, as Hillary Clinton advocated during one of her debates, that women should be paid the same as men regardless of their quality of work! Also, It is worth pointing out the same people who marched holding signs saying “I’m a vagina voter” will also be the first to tell you that your reproductive organs do not make you a woman. Let that sink in.

The march itself is proof women do not have issues. They enjoy the same right to peacefully assemble, the same right to vote, the same freedom of speech and of the press and all the other rights guaranteed by the Constitution as men. However, the greatest threat to these rights, most specifically, the right to life, and the right to free expression were the Women’s Marchers themselves. Women who wanted to join the march, but were also Pro-Life were not invited to “fight for their rights” alongside these other women. Are these women who believe in the sanctity of life less than female because of their beliefs? Are they not good enough because they do not conform to the lack of brain cells under those pink knit hats?

Look, I could go on forever about all of the double standards the Women’s March carried with them, but I will stop at just this last one. It is truly amazing that the Women’s Marchers can hold signs with the most profane, obscene, and disgusting language you could possibly think of toward women and smile, but President Trump was condemned so quickly by the media for using these same words.

Maybe instead of creating problems where there are none and condemning the President of the United States before he has even served a full day in office, they should have discussed the women in Saudi Arabia who cannot drive, or the girls in Pakistan who do not receive even basic education. Those on the left wouldn’t dare confront the horrifying reality Muslim women face, for it is too politically incorrect. In case you were unaware, pedophilia and the denial of basic human rights is permissible on the grounds of religion.

The reality is there are real issues that women in our world face today, but those who participated in the Women’s march do not care about other women, just their own self-esteem (or lack thereof). They are the misinformed lead by the malicious, and they are America’s special snowflakes.
