11. Yeah, because making women's rights a priority is just so "corporate"

So what if women are already poorer than men? So what if curtailing or eliminating reproductive rights greatly increases the number of women in poverty, and with them the children who make up the future generations of America? To be non-corporate, I must realize that the truly important issue is the bottom line of the demographic that already earns more and that any concerns about women's insignificant lives just makes us corporate stooges.

It would nice to see some honesty about what people really care about. I don't for a second buy your corporate spiel. To insist corporatism is defined entirely around reverence for one politician is absurd, and I doubt anyone can actually believe that. The ease with which women's rights are abandoned makes all too clear what is really happening. The effort to impose a great man, top-down hierarchy is perfectly in keeping with a political ethos than casts the lives of the majority of Americas as a distraction. The appeal for sympathy toward white male Trump voters over the concerns of the Democratic base makes more sense all the time.
