#StandWithPP

I'm back! I only really stayed at the rally until 1:30 but then I went pants shopping and that took forever. I'm really picky about pants.

Anyway, if you're following me on Twitter, you've already seen the photos, but here are my favorites:






If I look angry it's only because it was sunny and those sunglasses suck.

There were, as you can see, plenty of people there at the rally, and a ton of people driving by honked for Planned Parenthood. And I only caught one douchefuck trying to say through his car window that abortion kills babies, but one of the women was like "would you call an acorn a tree???" so.

Most of the women there were middle aged and older. It's cool to see old people out supporting reproductive rights. A lot of the time I slip into assuming that all old people are conservative, but I'm sure some of those women have been fighting for pro-choice causes for many decades.

I was disappointed to see how very, very white the rally was, though. The organizers failed to reach out to women of color, clearly. I actually hesitated to attend the rally myself when I saw the #PinkOut hashtag. #Blackout has been a thing for a while and I hope Planned Parenthood didn't knowingly appropriate that.

All in all, not a bad time. To anyone who thinks that Planned Parenthood should be defunded, I say, PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAVES THE LIVES OF PREGNANT PEOPLE AND THEIR FETUSES ALL THE TIME AND IF YOU SUPPORT DEFUNDING THAT YOU'RE SUPPORTING BABY MURDER. BABY MURDERER!
