Do you have any suggestions on what we can do as men to resist Trump and help protect others and ourselves? I feel so powerless and afraid and the women around me are afraid too and afraid of US.
it seems like you and the people around you have been taken over by the mass hysteria created by the media and others. What you and the people around you can do is:
1.) Calm down, and write down everything you are afraid of that you believe trump has the power to actually do. Then look those things up, research, and find out if trump can actually do it (if it’s within his authority), and/or if it’s something he actually said he was going to do, or is it something you heard from somewhere he was going to do.
2.) Research how the U.S government works and exactly how much power you as “the people” have compared to trump as “the government” . Research non-biased, (direct and quoted) promises trump has said/made. try to look find something that tells you direct quotes from trump and the others that are now in office, and do not look at what other people has to say about those quotes. Research Trump’s platform and do the same thing.
3.) Think about how you feel after reading those things trump has promised to do/ his platform. try and decipher them into your own words (and incorporate the limits of the power you now know trump has, as well as the power you know the people have, as you logically comprehend/paraphrase his platform/promises.)
4.) Avoid media and sensationalized outlets for information about your government. Don’t look to other people’s paraphrased words or other people’s understanding of what your government has promised to do. Look at it yourself, directly, and make your own judgement.
5.) Educate yourself and others on the power you have over your government, and also the limits your government has. Try and stop the spread of fear and the hysteria. This will reduce violence on the streets as well as the many many many false hate and discrimination stoires going around (that has only added fuel to the fire.)
6.) Accept different views, and be open-minded to others as long as they aren’t hurting another person/people.
7.) Keep being the lovely person you are, and encourage others to keep being the lovely people they are.
America = power to the people. Don’t panic. Don’t worry. He’s just another president.
Stay calm, and keep up with the politics as directly as you can.

****PLEASE AVOID CHERRY PICKED RESOURCES. IF YOU CARE TO KNOW WHAT YOUR GOVERNMENT HAS PROMISED TO DO AND THE CURRENT SITUATION OF THE UNITED STATES, PLEASE READ FULL SPEECHES, PLATFORMS, AND SCRIPTS (it’s long, but if you care, you’ll read it). ****
