Women's March on Seattle

I will definitely be at the Women's March on Seattle this Saturday, barring some kind of emergency or Earth-destroying meteor (which I might not mind to be perfectly honest hahahahahahahaha). If you somehow are not aware that this is a thing, there are marches scheduled all over the country to take place on the day after Inauguration Day to send a message that women and everyone who gives a shit about women and other marginalized persons will be resisting Donald and his gang of neo-Nazis at every step.

Main (Washington DC) Facebook Event.

Seattle Facebook Event.

Hundreds of thousands of people have pledged to attend the DC march and tens of thousands have pledged to march in Seattle. For the U.S., these are historic numbers. I'm excited to be a part of it.

If you're in the Seattle area, I'm thinking that I'll make a sign that's a fascism checklist, like:

Signs of Fascism:

  • Demonizing the media
  • Inserting your family into positions of power
  • Obtaining lists of your enemies
  • Attempting to disband ethics committees
  • Election tampering

Except instead of bullet points they'll be check marks, because Donald has done all of these and more.

Two more days.
