Perhaps you’ve heard of the new hashtag trending on Twitter… No? Well let me tell you exactly what it is: #Repealthe19th.

That’s right folks! There is a call to repeal the 19th amendment! You know, the one that gives women the right to vote. By now you might be thinking who would actually support this? Who is crazy enough to say such a thing? I’ll tell you who…

Donald. Trump. Supporters.

So how did something like this come up? What started such a disgusting rally?

October 11th was the day that statistician, Nate Silver, tweeted two electoral maps of the election results based on gender. The maps showed an overwhelming victory for Trump if only men voted and a victory for Clinton if only women voted.

These two graphs sparked a raging fire of feminism, mansplaining, and trolling. These three things poured into Twitter all day and all night. By the time this hashtag made it to the news, most of these tweets were just jokes. Of course, internet trolls took the opportunity to ruffle some feathers. By saying they support the repeal, they were able to get the reactions they were looking for.

Others, however, were actually backing this movement. Some Twitter users (both male and female) are looking to end women’s right to vote so that their next dictat- I mean president can come to power.

Whichever side you believe, it’s clear to see that 2016 is continuing to spiral out of control. To sum it all up with a tweet, I would say Serge The Sheep is 100% accurate.
