Bianca Bitches: It’s a protest not a ‘most creative sign’ contest

Protests such as March for Our Lives and the Women’s March have become more of a platform to display “witty” signs rather than its intended purpose, which is to have their concerns voiced and invoke changes in government or in mainstream society.

Chants such as “this pussy grabs back” and a sign held by a preteen boy which read, “When I said I’d rather die than go to math class? That was hyperbole, asshole.” distracts from the main purpose of the marches.

I’m too busy battling with imagery of a hand emerging out of some unspecified woman’s vagina and snatching President Trump bald to be motivated enough to want to fight for equal and fair rights for women.

Think about it this way, let’s say you went to an interview for a job and say to the person whose judgement will dictate if you get hired or not,”Hey, dickhead, give me a fucken job because I need one and I don’t have one.”

Signs can be used to drive a point home such as ones commonly seen throughout The Great Depression Era, just google “depression era signs” and you’ll get a sense of what I’m referring to.

The signs that can be seen at Trump era protests, however, do everything but drive the point home, they come across as nonintellectual and vulgar and only good for a quick chuckle.

Those marching have every right to be upset, but they are not doing it in a proper manner. It will grant them unsuccess in achieving better gun laws and equal rights for women.

The cliche is, “Kill them with kindness,” not insult them until you get what you want.

I know it may seem hypocritical coming from the woman who insert words like “fuck” and “titties” into her column and reviews at any chance she gets but think rational, people.

I’m not trying to invoke a change in government, those protesting are and frankly those old white men in Washington, D.C. aren’t going to appreciate being referred to as an asshole.
