Idiots Make #Repealthe19th Trend on Twitter
JUST TO CLARIFY:
This is a real, trending, hashtag. In 2016. We are actually talking about REAL PEOPLE in the UNITED STATES who are suggesting that we REPEAL THE NINETEENTH AMENDMENT. You know, the one that allows women to f*cking vote? I’m not even going to bother to contain my (completely justified) feminine rage.
This week, Trump supporters have taken to Twitter to demand a repeal of the 19th amendment — which in 1920 gave U.S. women the right to vote eh hem— after national polling indicated an extreme gender gap among presidential support.
But here’s the thing, women are allowed to vote. But apparently that only matters to Trump supporters if it works out in their favor.
This week, statistician Nate Silver published models of what the electoral map would look like if only men and then women voted. Yuuuuuuuge difference, wouldn’t you say?
Nate Silver’s electoral college models.
This super douche added a touch more misogyny to the already loaded tweet.
But this lady had an interesting take on the trending hashtag.
I mean, I guess if you were looking for another reason to vote it was helpful.
Will we ever reach our threshold of “too much”? Not likely this election cycle.
