Trumpís Latest Comments About Women Are Rape Culture In A Nutshell

Trump’s Latest Comments About Women Are Rape Culture In A Nutshell
“Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.”
10/07/2016 07:45 pm ET Emma Gray Executive Women’s Editor, The Huffington Post

Americans are well aware that Trump has a history of misogyny, ranging from attacking the appearances of women he dislikes, to shaming a woman breastfeeding, to fat-shaming a beauty queen, to sexually harassing women who worked on “The Apprentice,” to rating women on a numerical scale.

In Trump’s world, women are objects ― objects that only hold a value based on how physically attractive he personally finds them to be. And if women are objects, rather than whole human beings, it follows that Trump must deserve them. Women are things. And when he wants them, he wants them.

As he says to Bush: “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

This is what rape culture looks like.

attacking and shaming appearances of fat balding guys, telling guys to get on their knees and be sexually harrassed, used, abused, cheated on, etc. “Grab them by the patriarchy. You can do anything.”

Decent people on both sides of the aisle should be horrified by Trump's comments. However, Republicans aren't just the party of Trump, they are also the party of Dennis Hastert.

in these day and age that there are no laws protecting women from this form of sexual assault.
