The pro Trump memes and anti Democrat memes I take with a grain of salt. That's high feelings and passion.
The direct hateful memes and comments about the woman's march. This sluts and baby killer propaganda is exactly why a misogynist got elected.
The hateful personal attacks and women turning on one another. You can be a Republican and a Trump supporter without attacking a whole gender.
These marches were FOR woman's rights, gender equality and fair pay, fair health care. Rights that our gender had to claw for.
To make it about abortion and attacking the women who courageously spoke about their morals and past behavior is bullying, at worst a hate crime.
Putting up a picture of a burning limo from Inauguration night that the same group who caused the hockey riot has claimed as their own, is just smoke and mirrors.
Love him or hate him, love her or hate her but RESPECT the women who made it possible for you to voice it online as you own original thought.
Attacking your whole gender based on a few *Trumped* up alternative facts doesn't make it OK. Millions of women marched from all over the world because it's not OK.
They did it peacefully, they did it out of love for their fellow sisters who have been abused, raped, unable to afford cancer screening and mammograms, to get counselling, who get paid less than a man for the same job. They did it for their gay children and their *not white* nationalities.
That's the one that gets me, the *registering* if you're Muslim. Smacks of Nazi Germany. That closed fist rankles me too. The new salute in my opinion.
It works both ways, if you want to send people back where they came from I guess I'll have to go to Sweden, even though I was born in Canada. Oh no, half of me has to go to Scotland!
A few of my more vocal *friends* will have to leave the States because they're immigrants too.
I'm not a baby killer, I'm not a Femi/Nazi/tard (wow offensive) I'm a Mother and Grandmother from Canada who has benefited from our health care system, and enjoyed the freedom to have a gay uncle, gay cousins, native cousins, and *gasp* a circle of female friends from all over the world.
Some cheated, some had therapeutic abortions, some were beaten, some raped, some molested, some are gay, some have cancer, some are dying, and some are brown.
I love them all.
However, I do not condone or feel love for any woman who would post such garbage. Especially when I know for a fact that they had/did many of the things on my list. Plus they've come home to Canada when they need operations and prescriptions.
We don't feel comfortable being told by a man (or anyone) when and where we can get heath care. The same men who thought that women could control when and where they had their periods, and (my personal fave) that women all have their period at the same time!
I know I'm not American, (my Dad was, so was the persecuted gay uncle, and grandparents) but if you think this Presidency will not effect us in Canada, you're so wrong.
Already talking NAFTA and pipelines and signed the gag order on abortion.
What's next?
All you fat ugly Canadian women have to go home? How does that feel?
Think about your words and hateful propaganda because I will never forget what you said and posted. I'll never pretend that it's not there when we see each other.
This wasn't easy for me to write, I'm all about screening what I see from certain people, blocking, unfriending.
I could have done this privately but that's not good enough in this case. When someone sees that we're friends on Face Book I don't want them to think I'm like minded.
Be Kind.

Go here, read this and remember why you marched ladies.

Be kind, don't turn on one another.

No more stooping, 

No more hate,

No more compromise,

Be Nice.

If you can't say it to someone's face, don't post it.

 I've been reading comments about Meryl Streep. She's being called down for her Golden Globe acceptance speech.

 In her speech she made it clear that mocking one another for race, creed or ability (disability) is unacceptable. She basically just reminded us of what out parents told us when we were 3. Be nice, play fair, show some compassion and acceptance for other people and their differences.

 She also didn't name him or call him names while doing so.

Now the people who are slamming her for this are in turn being insulted by people who like her. That's right, I've seen it several times. 

The people who profess to hate what Mr. Trump said or did are now attacking the people that didn't like what Meryl said. Thus completing the circle.

 I'm sure Ms. Streep didn't give such an impassioned and heartfelt speech to have her supporters do the same thing she abhors.

 I also read today that people elect who best represents them. Judging by all the hate filled comments from all sides we can see how Mr. Trump got elected. 

Like him or hate him, respect one another's right to do the same.
