I'm starting this thread so I won't ruin the other one for those who want to feel good and kumbaya. But sorry I'm not optimistic. In fact, I'm furious. I've been furious all morning. This is absolute institutional capture. People will realize what's happening? Not a chance with MSM, academia, and Big Tech social media absolutely suppressing any dissenting voice. There's too much money to be made by Big Pharm. Big Tech has too many incels and Woke bros too interest in shutting down women complaining. The ship has sailed. Unless something absolutely horrible happens, this is now here to stay.
Just look at how this Executive Order was passed for chrissake. Did anyone even ask women? Was it even open to the public for debate? Wake up. They're not even going to let this come up for discussion. You're to accept it and shut up.
I can't believe some of the justifications some of you are telling yoruself, that he made it an Executive Order instead of letting it become a bill so that the next administration can rescind this. What makes you think the next administration, Dem or GOP, will want to take up this fight when this becomes the norm in four years? Or even if not, what makes you think whoever comes next will give a shit? The real reason why they didn't make this a bill? Because then Congress will HAVE to debate this publicly. And without Trump diverting people's attention, they might actually see and hear what's going on and public opinion might scuttle the bill. Now? Ha! They just passed it by stealth. And once it's part of the system, there's not going to be any turning back.
So pardon me for not joining in the bend at the knee. What is wrong with this place? Are we now supposed to capitulate too because a Dem is in the White House? Fuck that.
