The tweet was authored by Nelini Stamp, an organizer for the Women’s March and participant in yesterday’s Day Without Women strike. At least one presumes she attended, which also presupposes she was able to find her way to whatever prearranged location her group had single out as a starting point — which is supposing a lot. (When you get to the tweet, you’ll see what I mean.)
An article at Yahoo News further identifies Stamp as a leader of the Trump resistance, an alumna of Occupy Wall Street alum, and national membership director of something called the Working Families Party.
One of her contributions to yesterday’s demonstration was this tweet, which gave a few people on Twitter a chuckle:
“Women birth half the population and we are half the population!” – Nelini Stamp from the Working Families Party #DayWithoutAWoman

So, if women don’t birth that other half of the population,who, exactly does? Does this indicate special math challenges afflicting females? pic.twitter.com/908kspt3CV

So women “birth half the population” according to women”s march, pretty sure petri dishes not responsible for other half, teachers? SAD…

I say give Stamp credit. Half of her tweet is more or less correct. Which, I guess, makes her a half-tweet.
