As Women We All Have Felt It: Intimidation By Men

Last night we all witnessed the intimidation of Donald Trump on Hilary Clinton. Every woman has felt this psychological threat at one time or another either from a stranger or a significant other. Having a man angrily pace and lurk behind you is unnerving on a good day and out and out frightening on another. In doing so Trump again and I cannot stress ‘AGAIN’ enough because for some reason people want to believe a different narrative of him everyday so he AGAIN PROVED how little he respects women. However, last night was less about respect but more about terrorizing. Last night Donald Trump showed he is a terrorist.

How can that be denied with the release of the Access Hollywood video? He proved what we knew all along that he was a misogynist pig. Only people who wanted to pretend he was a better person pretended to be shocked.

‘I have daughters, I have a wife. I cannot condone grabbing a woman by the pussy’ <fake pearl clutch>

The release of the video made his pacing around Hillary pretty damn alarming for any woman who has been physically intimidated by a man. Trump moved around like a lion circling weak prey. Would he have done that to a man, stand behind him so menacing? Maybe but we have clear evidence that Donald Trump is a an attacker when it comes to women who ‘disappoint’, challenge, or anger him.

So why are we not talking about Ivana’s rape accusation? She laid out how one night he was so angry with her that he grabbed her by the hair and forced penetration. Looking at him last night I know she was telling the truth.

The book, by former Texas Monthly and Newsweek reporter Harry Hurt III, described a harrowing scene. After a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot, Donald Trump confronted his then-wife, who had previously used the same plastic surgeon.

“Your fucking doctor has ruined me!” Trump cried.

What followed was a “violent assault,” according to Lost Tycoon. Donald held back Ivana’s arms and began to pull out fistfuls of hair from her scalp, as if to mirror the pain he felt from his own operation. He tore off her clothes and unzipped his pants.

“Then he jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified… It is a violent assault,” Hurt writes. “According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, ‘he raped me.’”

Following the incident, Ivana ran upstairs, hid behind a locked door, and remained there “crying for the rest of night.” When she returned to the master bedroom in the morning, he was there.

“As she looks in horror at the ripped-out hair scattered all over the bed, he glares at her and asks with menacing casualness: ‘Does it hurt?’” Hurt writes.

This was the early 90’s and spousal rape was given an eye roll at best. She did drop her claim but for a nice settlement however the record is there in the deposition.

I looked in his eyes last night and saw the hatred of man who refuses to pushed around by any woman because he will physically and psychologically overtake her in the most demeaning way.

Donald Trump is a rapist, a predator, and a terrorist of women. Stop pretending he is not.
