Ladies, Trump Is Not Taking Away Any Of Our Fundamental Rights, OK?

Ladies, Trump Is Not Taking Away Any Of Our Fundamental Rights, OK?

If you think you don't have fundamental rights, please leave.

Every American has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We can vote, have a job, go to school and get as many degrees as we desire, go into any field we want, take out loans, have a credit card, live alone, sign our own paperwork, make our own medical decisions. We can do what we want, when we want, and make our lives whatever we want it to be.

Ladies stop crying and throwing a fit over something that hasn't happened.

Just because your party didn't get elected into office doesn't mean your rights are being taken away. Why? Because they haven't and won't.

Donald Trump cannot take away Roe V. Wade. Why? Because the Supreme Court gets the final say. Whatever they say goes. There is no repealing and there is no undoing Roe V. Wade. The only way it could remotely become undone is if the Supreme Court took up a different case with different circumstances and therefore had an outcome affecting a part of Roe V. Wade. Every woman and man has the right to say yes or no to an abortion (and, yes, the man should be apart of that decision).

If you do not think that women in America have fundamental rights, the door is right there.

Please leave and make room for all the people who will work hard and appreciate the freedoms and opportunities here.

Women in Saudi Arabia just got the right to drive, which is still a huge controversy in the country. Here nobody questions one's driving ability, legally, when it comes to gender. It doesn't matter if mom or dad takes their daughter or son to get their permit and to complete the state's requirements.

Women in American have the ability to go to college, in fact, more women than men graduate college. We can pursue an undergraduate, graduate, Ph.D., Law degree, whatever you feel you need in order to be successful.

I do not understand where this whole idea has come from. It is insanity to think that we have no rights what so ever and that our fundamental rights are being taken away. It is a fact that American citizens have the most freedom in the world. We are given rights from birth that people in other countries are dying to be able to have. Why else would there be so many people trying to get in? If you think you don't have any rights, then let someone else replace you.

I'm The Girl Who'd Rather Raise A Family Than A Feminist Protest Sign

You raise your protest picket signs and I’ll raise my white picket fence.

Social Media feeds are constantly filled with quotes on women's rights, protests with mobs of women, and an array of cleverly worded picket signs.

Good for them, standing up for their beliefs and opinions. Will I be joining my tight-knit family of the same gender?

Nope, no thank you.

Don't get me wrong, I am not going to be oblivious to my history and the advancements that women have fought to achieve. I am aware that the strides made by many women before me have provided us with voting rights, a voice, equality, and equal pay in the workforce.

For that, I am deeply thankful. But at this day in age, I know more female managers in the workforce than male. I know more women in business than men. I know more female students in STEM programs than male students. So what’s with all the hype? We are girl bosses, we can run the world, we don’t need to fight the system anymore.

Please stop.

Because it is insulting to the rest of us girls who are okay with being homemakers, wives, or stay-at-home moms. It's dividing our sisterhood, and it needs to stop.

All these protests and strong statements make us feel like now we HAVE to obtain a power position in our career. It's our rightful duty to our sisters. And if we do not, we are a disappointment to the gender and it makes us look weak.

Weak to the point where I feel ashamed to say to a friend “I want to be a stay at home mom someday.” Then have them look at me like I must have been brain-washed by a man because that can be the only explanation. I'm tired of feeling belittled for being a traditionalist.

Why?

Because why should I feel bad for wanting to create a comfortable home for my future family, cooking for my husband, being a soccer mom, keeping my house tidy? Because honestly, I cannot wait.

I will have no problem taking my future husband’s last name, and following his lead.

The Bible appoints men to be the head of a family, and for wives to submit to their husbands. (This can be interpreted in so many ways, so don't get your panties in a bunch at the word “submit”). God specifically made women to be gentle and caring, and we should not be afraid to embrace that. God created men to be leaders with the strength to carry the weight of a family.

However, in no way does this mean that the roles cannot be flipped. If you want to take on the responsibility, by all means, you go girl. But for me personally? I'm sensitive, I cry during horror movies, I'm afraid of basements and dark rooms. I, in no way, am strong enough to take on the tasks that men have been appointed to. And I'm okay with that.

So please, let me look forward to baking cookies for bake sales and driving a mom car.

And I'll support you in your endeavors and climb to the top of the corporate ladder. It doesn't matter what side you are on as long as we support each other, because we all need some girl power.

Giphy

... then don't do it. Plain and simple. It won't do anyone any good to go after someone for something that really isn't a big deal.

Giphy

You have so much to say and share, people will listen, especially if you have good things to say.

Straight to the point, let's do it. You don't have to do it alone, but you have to do it.

Kid President is the king of good advice. It's all put in simple terms because we don't need to complicate anything anymore.
