I was in Knoxville TN over the weekend and decided to hit up the Women’s March there. I’m so glad I did.
I made a little video from my pictures and video
I loved the Indian girl at the end of the video. She was so excited because the crowd behind us had started chanting “Love Trumps Hate”. I told her it was because of her sign. She was walking beside me for a while chanting “Love Trumps Hate” in this little tiny voice. She was adorable!
It was raining so eventually my signs melted. But lots of people came up to me to take pictures of them. A physics professor from the University of Tennessee hugged me and got his son to take pictures of us together.
East Tennessee is a very conservative area so it was great to see this turnout. Part of me just wanted to yell though, “We wouldn’t be here if some of ya’ll hadn’t voted for him in the first place.” but I held my tongue.
I followed a truck this morning with a window sticker that I could not understand.
Lift it up!
This was between two coonhound stickers and I originally tried to connect them all. Eventually I realized that this was advice to put your truck on large tires so overweight women would not be able to get into it.
Now, I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that if I saw the driver of this vehicle that I would not mistake him for Brad Pitt. I’m amazed at the number of “Don’t let fat women near your truck” stickers I see displayed in the town I work in. Is that in the owner’s manual? Is it a known cause of vehicle failure?
Or is it just these men declaring to the world that they are a$%&0les who prefer their trucks to women? Surely, any self respecting woman of any size would not want to be involved with a man who felt comfortable advertising that on his truck.
(Don’t tell me that I’d be surprised about how women will flock to idiots. I’m preferring to live in blissful denial today.)
