I have to agree...it all seemed a huge waste of energy to me, why bother they cant change anything, hes been elected, hes president for 4 years, so give it up and suck it up. Most females I know were of a similar opinion too.

There are a million 'what-ifs' but they are all irrelevant.

Everyone keeps harping on about Clinton winning the popular vote but that is also irrelevant because the president is not elected by the popular vote.

IF the election were by popular vote, we would have had a vastly different campaign and election. Campaigning was almost exclusively in the swing states. Very little campaigning was done in the solid states because it would make no difference to the Electoral College votes. In those solid states, millions of voters simply didn't vote because their vote would make no difference.

In the swing states, there was a small (but very significant) swing to Republican. Which won Trump the election.

Nobody can say, with any certainty, what the result would have been in a 'popular vote' election.
Not much different to what happens in the UK or Canada, then.

To avoid the tyranny of the majority:

+1.... I agree with you and Pulaski...

Personally I don't get it. Women and Men have equal rights in the US. Trump isn't trying to stop that, and never has. Why not protest against the way women are treated in Saudi Arabia or Somalia?

That's why they earn the same wage for the same work.

They do?

If so, that's disgusting!

Women spend all their earnings, and more, on shoes and other frippery.

Men spend all their earnings, and more, on paying the Visa bills.

Stops large majorities in large states pushing their agenda on the rest of the country. It doesn't matter how large the majority is in say, California or Texas, the impact of California and Texas on the presidential vote is capped.

BUt they were protesting that too. Human rights in general and women's rights in particular. As I said upthread, access to contraception, gynaecological health, abortion, women's shelters.
Did you see Trump and those men today signing off against funding abortion? Not one woman there.

Is this apathy or submission? You don't know until you try.

Btw if men don't support contraception access for women then they won't be getting much sex and when they do they'll have to use s condom.

The probable serial sexual assaulter, today made an executive order that restricts women's access to reproductive health across many parts of the world, no doubt leading to risk as woman turn to back street alternatives.

But that's alright. Women and men have equal rights in America. Gozit said so.
