Reel Grrls isn’t Letting Misogyny Ruin our 15th Birthday – Let’s Bash Back Together!

Today I imagined waking up in an America where I could proudly say we put a qualified, compassionate, and experienced President in office – who also happened to be a woman.  Instead, I have no feelings, or maybe I am in shock that an unqualified and tempermental unfit man, who was endorsed by the KKK and openly bragged about sexually assaulting women, is the leader of our country, a country he doesn’t believe is great.  America we are in trouble and we are hurting.

BAD - just like your bad logic, bad design, and bad use of women to dis. Bad Logic  Your logic is terrible. You cannot equate sexual predatory behavior that is non-consensual to Beyonce (or any other person) having agency of their own body, and celebrating their sexuality on their own terms. Bad Design Your "meme" design is awful. Really? The font is too small - you need to make the font ...
