Men Who Brag About Grabbing Pussy And The Women Who Love Them

I am in a rage. I just read a post on Facebook, by a woman, who waved off the whole Trump “locker room” conversation by stating that all men just talk this way, and talking and doing are two different things, and oh, Bill Clinton/affairs/oval office. I don’t know who she hangs out with, but I DON”T know men who talk like this, at least I don’t any more. The men I know, relatives, friends, friend’s husbands, lovers, business associates, are ALL decent honorable men.

Because of a past relationship and the men he associated with, I used to know men like this and overheard some scalding degrading conversations about women. Let me tell you, hearing Trump’s conversation on the news Friday night brought back some very uncomfortable flashbacks. Things I didn’t want to have to think about again.

I just want to ask her to her face….I want to ask any woman who supports Trump some simple questions.

How comfortable would you be if your daughter was in the same room alone with Trump?

Would you still support him if he grabbed YOUR pussy? Or your daughters? Grand-daughters? Best friend? Your mom’s? What if he just kissed you? Would that be acceptable…or would he have to do more?

It infuriates me that they always bring up Bill Clinton’s past affairs. First of all, Bill Clinton isn’t running for president. And second, condemning Hillary for staying in the marriage is condemning any woman who decides to stay in their marriage after their husband cheats. I personally know three women who stayed in their marriages after their husbands cheated. It’s not the right choice for everyone, but it was their choice and it should be honored and not condemned. And while they condemn her for staying, they gloss over Trump’s many affairs on all THREE of his wives.

I should know better than expect condemnation for this latest outrage. After all, these are the same people who don’t care that Trump has publicly expressed an interest in having sex with his own daughter. I have similar questions about that, too.

How would you feel if your husband said that he thinks your daughter is beautiful and that if she wasn’t his daughter he’d like to have sex with her?

What if your dad said that about your daughter…if she wasn’t his granddaughter he’d like to have sex with her….or your brother….or your husband’s buddy…damn that a hot daughter you have….I sure would love to have sex with her….

What does it fucking take?

I have wondered what damage that statement made to Ivanka’s psyche. Now it has been revealed that Trump was okay with referring to his daughter as “a piece of ass.”

I have never talked about this before publicly but I know personally what it is like to have a relative behave inappropriately towards me. It was the step-father of an in-law and it was always during large family gatherings at Christmas. He’d rub up against me…from behind. Pretending it was an accident. Over and over. At least 2 or 3 times each gathering. His hand would brush the side of my breast while reaching for something. He’d stare at my ass openly. He’d make sexually suggestive comments. Subtle ones, with an arched eyebrow. I knew if I mentioned it, it would get laughed off, brushed off. I would end up the villain. So I kept my mouth shut and I tried to sit across the table from him and I made sure I wasn’t standing where he could get to me. I know how this made me feel, both his actions and the fact that I felt I couldn’t speak out.

Don’t feel sorry for me. It didn’t do any lasting damage. Get MAD instead. Get mad that men treat women this way. Get mad that admitting to an affinity towards sexual assault isn’t enough for most Trump supporters to pull their support. Get mad that women, women! don’t support each other more and present a united front against sexual predators. Get mad that people don’t have higher expectations and standards for their leaders.

What is the world coming to when women accept a man who shows us the monster that he is?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
