The most important question, within the context and framework of the 1st Amendment, asked by the women here is:

"American Politics is the South's REVENGE for the Civil War."

William Buckley's National Review

The whole thing is laid bare at this point, due to 400 years of inflicting brutality while enjoying privilege today's white Republicans (there are good white people out there, obviously, but, if you support Trump you could not possibly be one of them) are now completely exposed, once again but this time with media no longer fully controlled by Hearsts and other "Titans" with Gilded Age Agendas, (although partially by Russia!) as cowards who fear the "other" and still, after everything we've been through, want to try and control women.
