As I post this, Donald Trump has been President of the United States for 14 days, and the United States is still holding together.
I’ve had a bunch of Facebook friends talk about participating in some of the protest marches around the country after the inauguration. Some of the most popular ones are the women’s marches around the country. I think I’d like to get a pussy hat just for the novelty of it, but I have no interest in walking with the women. Sorry, I don’t walk that way. Other men should think twice about walking too.
No, it’s not because I don’t support the women. I do empathize with their causes. (In my more naive days, I once offered to publicly speak against Rush Limbaugh’s misogynistic behavior.) And it’s not because my knees are slowly going out and I couldn’t tolerate the walk. Heaven knows I could use the exercise. No, the reason I’m not interested in walking is I am, after all, male, not female.
You see, I don’t believe men should be participating in women’s causes except under a few circumstances. Let me explain.
