Lets not hail Stormy as a hero

I hope and pray she’s one of the last nails in the coffin. Make no mistake.

But the exchange in the interview where she talks about walking in the room and seeing Trump, that fat revolting fuck, sitting on the bed and all she can do is say “oh look what I’ve gotten myself into” and then has sex with him is one of the most pathetic things I’ve ever heard someone cop to.

She's not a hero or a sympathetic character in this story.

A very different mindset. But, she surely didn't deserve to be threatened in front of her infant daughter and frankly, I DO believe that she was.

4. She was threatened, and that's a crime indeed. In that sense, she is a victim.

However, at the time of the affair, she had the option of rejecting his advances, and she simply chose not to, possibly in search of some benefit.

Many's the day I woke up and didn't want to go to work but went anyway. A job's a job...hooker, proctologist, evangelical huckster. Whatever it takes to separate fat, revolting fucks from their money is all right with me.

You do know that “worlds oldest profession” is not a historical fact.

Prostitution requires the development of commerce.

There is plenty of ancient pornography.

9. Feeling like she "deserved" to go through with sex with him becauase of the decisions that led her

there is a result of rape culture. It is pathetic, but only because it's a symptom of our society's broken attitude toward sex, power and consent.

15. I've read similar opinions, and I have to disagree.

There's nothing in the story that indicates that she was forced to have sex with Donald. She made that calculation or decision out of her own volition, according to her. Why not believe her? No need to victimize her.

20. That's fair.

To me, it sounds like at the last moment she regretted her choice to go that far. It's not uncommon, and I think that people who feel like they have to "go through with something" after having "gone so far" are feeling a pressure that shouldn't exist, but does.

30. She said she was not a victim, and it bothers her when people try to claim she was

She was especially bothered by people who say it was a “me too” situation. Because that diminishes what those women went through at the hands of their abusers.

She was quite clear on all this.

41. There is a tendency, at least recently, to question the whole concept of consent.

I tend to believe a person when they repeatedly say they consented. Not every woman is a victim of power dynamics or abuse.

56. The way she put it was odd though

She had gotten herself into the situation and felt she had to deal with the consequences, which was having sex with him. She said she was not forced and not a victim. But she admitted she did not want sex with him. She just felt like she had to from the situation she had gotten herself into. Why did she think that? She could have left.

11. Right...because at no point was she ever in any danger

Women who work in the sex industry are in a high risk group...they go missing all the time, end uo murdered, raped, beaten etc. because they are seen as disposable.

Who are the police going to believe...a millionaire white male or a porn star?

You can say "no way Trump was going to hurt her" but his anger is legendary and so is the fact that he surrounds himself with thuggish body guards who have no problem hitting women ( Lewindowsky).

So she had no idea how he would react to her refusal in a private hotel room. Yes it was consensual, but that doesn't mean she wanted to.

She did what she felt she had to do...she knew it would be her word against his.

So yeah, in my eyes she is a hero...she still has privilege over other sex workers who aren't white, aren't cis-female, she is educated and has some resources. But she is still taking a risk, she is still speaking up and speaking out, she isn't going away quietly. Maybe her strength will give other women strength to speak up.

I think she wanted more money and TV time and having sex with a revolting famous dude was the way to that. As much as it repulsed her in the moment.

I have to take her word that she’s not a #metoo victim.

57. It is not either/or

The way she thought she had to have sex with him - no one is saying she is a victim, etc. But there is an observation that she specifically did not want sex with him, but felt she had put herself in that position and was stuck with it.

I suppose men could end up in such a position too.

I will not judge and I think we probably shouldn't

50. Not a hero, but brave? Yes.

Brave for speaking out, despite threats.

I don't judge her for having sex with him. I am sure since she has a career in the sex industry, her perspective on it is far removed from most of us. I can understand HER being in a situation where she has gone along as things escalated to a point and decided she "might as well" go through with it.

That is not something I would brush off for someone who sees sex as a deep emotional connection you make with only someone you love, but that is not her perspective.

So - hero? No. Brave? Yes. Victim of assault? Probably not. Victim of threats and intimidation? Definitely.

Trump and his band of thugs. However, unless she can prove she was threatened by somebody tied to Trump, it's not really going to amount to much, in my opinion. If she has physical evidence (pictures, video) of the two of them having sex, it will likely hurt Trump in the wallet when Melania divorces him and can toss out the pre-nup.
