Sexism as you know is discrimination based on gender and is typically upon women. Women are too often looked upon by many as inferior to men. Most women in history and today are treated as the property of a man when they are in relationships.
No one can say they haven't seen any instances of sexism. It's in rape allegations, if the man is wealthy or rich. It's in pay and positions in too many places. It's the way a woman is treated and the amount of respect a woman is given in many positions even when they are doing the same jobs as men.
It ranges from cases like Lisa Bianco, murdered by an estranged husband who was allowed out of jail and she was not warned as she asked. This was 2 years after a video showing her battered swollen face. And it even extends into international instances, such as Neda Agha-Soltan, murdered for just protesting as a female.
There appears to be no end to the expression of superiority of men on and in women's lives. So much so, this superiority complex is even in our fucking politics STILL.
The stupid decision to elect Trump only keeps our country from moving forward to a United States that will only get better for everyone. And if it's better for the population, it will be good for the government.
However, to plunge our fucking country into reverse, fuck up our international relationships, and what peace we have here in the states that would make this country much more united, is a stupid move because of the belief that a woman could not or should not handle such a demanding job.
They actually elected a person that is not politics-literate and involved in hacking the system, into the most powerful position in the United States just to keep a woman from having any control.
And you have to wonder, is this what they want to do, plunge the world into near chaos and ruin the United States for nothing but sexism?
OVERALL, it doesn't matter how many people on this earth say or treat us as if we are inferior. We won't ever BELIEVE that lie. We won't ever embrace the bullshit.
We can't embrace it. Life and the decisions we make in it continues to show us our worth and strengths every single day. We do what we must for us and our families. We too often change for and because of the situations we are in. We've been strong, and elegantly so, while fighting for what we need and want in this world even alone. We stand on our own two because life demands it, and really, it's no problem.
To the men who believe and express this inferiority, go ahead and give up on the lies. It's true that in this day and age, you may see women that don't believe in independence. Enjoy it where you can, because the vast majority of us are unafraid going into the future and independent as well.

That black people or people of color have to say this, march for this, fucking care to say or reemphasize this in any way is not only a shame, but it continues the hypocritical bullshit denial of systematic oppression upon people of color.
People are literally trying to throw the phrase and movement back into the faces of people of color and its supporters.
How fucking dare anyone?
Since the end of slavery, men in power in the US have tried to either control or kill people of color. Their genocide is just in the form of limiting and restricting resources, or allowing terrorism in the form of the KKK and other racists groups.
Jobs and opportunities are and were restricted for people of color therefore crime became and becomes the means to survival. And this was meant to harm us, because crime of course leads to death, destruction of lives and communities for the ones who commit the crimes (drugs being the most common means), the ones who use the drugs, death by the police from committing a crime, death when fighting each other over resources, or slavery, meaning locked away in prisons for the rest of our lives.
In the days of the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King Jr and many more leaders were fighting for equal opportunities and equal treatment. They were fighting the machine that labeled people of color inferior and the hatred and oppression this caused.
It's time that black lives truly mattered. There are too many people who look at people of color like there is no worth in our existence or as if we have no humanity.
This is shown by the constant instances of the police and justice system making decisions with violence and punishments reflecting the lack of concern for the life of black people since and before the brutal murder of Deandre Brunston.
There is no magical cure for racism. And there shouldn't be, people should pull the stick out of their hateful ass and allow each other to live. Racism has to do with the attitude and behavior one has towards another. If this changes, it would have to be individually. Sadly, the change is far-fetched because there are so many people that have no confidence unless they can say what they want to others and do what they want to others to feel as if they are better than someone else.
Racism is stupidity, yes, but very lazy to me, because it is up to an individual to look outside their own lives and situations and understand others. A lot of people have been through living nightmares and heartache in life. I have had my own suffering, and all alone I have experienced terrible things.
However, I refused to allow bad life situations to keep me in a bubble; uneducated, not open-minded but blindly rejecting different people, cultures, beliefs, or groups. If I can look outside myself in simple consideration and understanding with all the rage and hatred I've had in my lifetime, I know others can too.
ANYWAY...to the Black Lives Matter Movement, persevere onward. Don't EVER let injustices go unpunished and unheard or allow inequality to go unchecked or unexposed. Today, it's past time that black lives mattered...
