“Women are not fit for politics. #RepealThe19th.”

“Give out nice enough handbags and most broads would gladly trade their voting rights for one. #repealthe19th”

“Men should never have given women the right to vote #RepealThe19th.”

As a woman, I am appalled. As a voter, I am frustrated. As a human, I am disappointed.

The fact that so many people are latching on to this hashtag is a representation of our current state of affairs: dismal and pathetic.

People can so easily dismiss women and their rights, but think about all we have accomplished to get to this point. Hello, women’s suffrage movement anyone? I mean, we have a woman running for president! Still, this bigotry and arrogance is taking over my news feed.

Statistically, I already have two strikes against me. I am a woman and I am black. I am worried, and I am unsure of the future.

If women were to lose their right to vote, what would be next? Granted, that situation is highly unlikely, but this is something I seriously worry about. I worry about my freedoms being taken from me like they were taken from my ancestors.

The thing that I fear most would be the regression of policies that have been set forth to make the world better.

It starts with little things, like a  simple hashtag. Then it spirals into anarchy. It spirals into the degradation of our basic human rights.

Lewd comments, disregard for others and repulsive behavior — this is the man we are allowing to be a choice for president of the United States.

I am not a fan of Donald J. Trump. However, now I have lost respect for  him I didn’t even know I had. More than just being a disrespectful, rude bully, he has the most power to influence hundreds of thousands of individuals.

Stick and stones may break my bones, but words will lead to action, and action could lead to the destruction of this country.
