    Well, that was a surprise. It had to be Trump, so they found a group to put forward instead.

    The only thing that surprises me more that anyone gives this garbage credence, even more than Time still even being in print or thinking they are relevant, is that this is just one more feel-good Kumbaya genuflection towards the PC empowerment of women over the continued hate-vilification of men. It means about as much as Obama's Nobel Prize for Peace right before he went out to practically start World War III in the Middle East.

    Kinda funny that over 99.99999999999999% of the history of the human species, the woman has always been associated with sex, property, desire and acquisition and has both needed and used her body that whole time to get everything from food, clothes, a roof over her head, to money and power, and now all of a sudden, in the last second of the last minute of the last hour of the last day, the world acts like this is something new, a big revelation, acts shocked, and that somehow it should be stopped overnight.

    Women say they just want to be treated equal, but I think that when they find they are being TRULY treated equal, nothing more or less than a man, they will be very very disappointed in their "accomplishment."

    What about those who don't deserve it in the first place? What if they do something right and are bad mouthed or worse by whoever ended up on the losing end?

    God bless you always!!!

    Do you ask yourself why conservative women are not represented?

    no

    Should worry about their political affliation instead of the ordeal they suffered?

    Didn’t several women get assaulted and raped by Clinton? Why aren’t they on the cover?
