I’m Not Normally A Sign Girl, But I Was Told Pussy Riot Would Be Here
In honor of the thousands of handmade signs held aloft in the capital at the January 21, 2017 Women’s March on Washington.
America needs nasty women. Achieving our full selves by fully embracing each other.
Bridges not walls. Boys can be feminists. Bitches get shit done.
Clean out the crooks. Choke on your silver spoon. Can’t touch this. Code Pink.
Don’t be a bully. Democracy demands empathy. Dissent is patriotic. Duh.
Equality includes everybody. Extremists have shown what frightens them most is a girl with a book.
Fight like a girl. For the prison rebels, for the undocumented, for revolution.
Feminism – the radical notion that women are people.
Girls just want to have fun-damental rights. Gender free.
Hands off my pussy. Here comes the backlash. Hear our voice. Hear us roar.
In our America love wins. If I love you I have to make you conscious of the things you do not see.
I didn’t come from your rib you came from my vagina. I can be president.
I can’t believe I still have to protest this shit.
Join the Resistance. Justice for all bee-ings.
Kiss me I’m peaceful. Keep your laws off my body.
Ladies, let’s get in formation. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Love trumps hate.
Love thy neighbor no exceptions.
Make America good. Make America kind again. Make America think again. Make love not walls.
March to enact the rights for which our mothers fought. March for my sisters right to choose.
March forwards not backwards. My body my choice my vote my voice.
Nasty women unite. Nasty and proud. Nasty girls grab back. Nasty women for progress.
Nothing is more urgent than freedom. No uterus no opinion. Not up for grabs. Nope.
Our bodies our minds our power.
Pussy power. Proud to be a woman. Patriarchy hurts all.
Rise up. Reject the combover con. Reject hate reclaim politics. Respect existence expect resistance. Respect pour les femmes americaines.
Strong ass girls. Sisters stronger together. Smart women recognize an imposter.
Strong women scare weak men. Silence is complicity. Safeguard the truth.
Stop violence against women. Stand on the right side of history. Stand together against hate.
The future is female. The statue of taking liberty. This is not fake news.
Uppity Womyn Unite. Unite the state of America.
Women are powerful and dangerous. We the people are greater than fear.
We will speak up for our neighbors and our planet. We see injustice we correct it.
We won’t stop until it rains glass. We’re not jumpin on your trampoline. We shall overcomb.
We are the wall.
You grab you lose your bloody hand. You haven’t seen nasty yet.
