Donald Trump: the blonde hair, orange skinned enemy to women everywhere.
I just want to remind everyone that we did this to ourselves.
We’ve all seen the video by now from 2005 when Trump and Billy Bush had a private conversation on a bus.
Seems innocent enough right?
Well behind those closed doors, Trump gloated that he can basically do what he wants to women because he is a superstar.
The main argument supporting Trump and Bush was that their conversation was private and they didn’t know that they were being recorded.
Trump called his conversation ‘locker room talk’, explaining that men talk like that to their friends all the time.
Well, if that’s true, then I’m horrified.
What kind of man tells their friend that they are going to ‘grab her by the pussy’ when they are referring to a female?
His supporters are right; it was a private conversation.
But the conversations you have when you think no one is listening shows who you really are.
Another argument is that his conversation was from 2005 and no one should care what was said and done over 10 years ago.
Well, Kim Kardashian-West’s sex tape was leaked 13 years ago and people can’t seem to let that go.
The double standard is very real here.
But what baffles me even more than Trump’s comments is the fact that women are still supporting him.
Women supporters are wearing shirts saying ‘Trump can grab my—‘ well, you get the idea.
Trump’s comments and his supporters are perpetuating rape culture.
Imagine if your mother, wife, sister, daughter or any other woman in your life were to be groped?
Would you still be defending Trump?
Honestly, I shouldn’t even have use other women as an example.
Humans should have enough respect for one another to know that groping and forcing yourself on someone without their consent is wrong.
I am legitimately worried that a man thinks it’s okay to grope me because he thinks he’s dominant.
