      Yes, you might actually see people that disagree with you on things.

        Although I don’t agree with them, I really just don’t like being on metro with protesters in general. I avoided metro for the Women’s March, but cannot do the same on Friday. I just hope their signs are small.

          Keep a huge stash of condoms in your purse/bag/coat pockets and then hand out condoms to the demonstrators!

      90% of them will be snotty high school students playing with their iPhones. Let’s just say that they are severely lacking in passion for the cause.

        +1, I’ve always been 100% pro-choice but as a High Schooler at a Catholic School who was given the choice to take a day off of school and go to DC, heck yes, I went. Until I convinced my mom to just let me skip school that day.

    They are going to need to close a lot more streets than that! President Trump thinks this march will be bigger than last week’s Women’s March.

      aren’t you a dear!

    • Vered

      Oh so he’s acknowledging the size of the Women’s March now?

    Great… I have a reason to skip lunch and maybe dinner. Walking by 1000 aborted fetus signs will definitely do the trick.
