It is an ordinary day in our household.
My wife is watching The Lion King with our son. We’re about to have lunch. Like The Day Without Immigrants, The Day Without a Woman has only illustrated that these people are far removed from my area and have absolutely no impact whatsoever on my daily life.
Meanwhile, The New York Times reports that the Eastern woman is revolting in Midtown Manhattan:
“Arrests in Midtown Manhattan
By noon, the New York City police were already helping direct the mostly female crowd that had gathered down one busy block of Midtown Manhattan. Many people wore pink hats or carried protest signs, and there was more than one cardboard fist thrust into the air.
The protesters represented a diverse array of issues — immigration, health care, the environment — but several people said the main goal of the day was to show solidarity with women around the world.
“I’m always telling my sons how strongly I feel about gender equality, said Jennifer Mazzanti, a 40-year-old mother of two sons who had taken the day off from running her technology consulting firm. “I want them to grow up in a world where this isn’t an issue anymore.” …
Protesters, some of whom chanted “this is what democracy looks like,” began marching in the direction of the Trump International Hotel a little after 1 p.m. Around 1:30, organizers tweeted that the police had taken protesters into custody. …”
Feminists marching through Manhattan in vagina hats, clenched fists raised in the air and chanting “this is what democracy looks like” for no apparent reason is a great advertisement for monarchy. If this is what democracy looks like, maybe we should try something else?
