Voting For A Sexist


I can’t begin to fully understand what it is like to be female in our society.  The truth is, no man can. Until you have experienced the things that females of all ages experience one can not accurately identify with their experiences.

Now females of all political persuasions are faced with the opportunity to support Donald Trump in the upcoming election.  They are faced with casting a vote for an individual that has spent quite a lot of energy in his life demeaning females he disagrees with.   Here are some verified examples of Trump’s treatment of women.

Donald called Rosie O’Donnell “untalented and of less than average intelligence”.  He has called her a “big fat pig, a real loser, a disgusting pig, and my nice fat little Rosie”.  He also commented that Rosie O’Donnell is “disgusting both inside and out, she is a slob.”

Of Arianna Huffington he has said “she is a dog who wrongfully comments on me”.  Donald also sent a woman named Gail Collins a picture of Huffington with the following written on it. “The Face Of A Dog”.

He called Attorney Elizabeth Beck “disgusting” when she requested a break from a legal proceeding to pump breast milk.

Referring to Carly Fiorina he said “look at that face, would anyone vote for that?  Can you imagine that, the face of our next President”.

Once he referred to Nicollette Sheridan by commenting that “a person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.”

His recent battle with Megyn Kelly of Fox News is just the latest example of comments that demean women.

Some have used the term “misognyst” to describe Trump.  There are several definitions that one can use to describe the term.  Some go as far as to claim it means one who hates women.   I don’t think we can go that far.  After all, he has married three of them and divorced two of them.  That being said, a more accurate label would be that Donald Trump is “sexist”.   That term implies a general attitude that is explainable only by stating that he treats them with disdain and thinks he is better than them because of his inheritance of a Y chromosome. Voting for a man with this attitude is voting for a man who regularly thinks women are beneath him.  He is better than them.

So I ask you, women of the country, how is it that a person that behaves as he does towards women could ever gain your vote in a Presidential election?

I have heard quite a few answers to that question.   One common one I have heard is that there are other things about him that make him their choice in spite of their dislike of his sexist behavior.  In other words, other things are more important.  We can hold our nose and vote for this guy because other things about him are more important that his documented attitude towards women.

Here are a couple of questions you might ask yourself before you make up your mind.

  1. If Donald Trump was a Democrat would you vote for him?
  2. To those of you with daughters, if those comments were made directly at your child, would you still vote for him?
  3. Are you comfortable with putting a man with his attitude towards women into the most powerful leadership position on the planet?

It is not surprising to most of us that Donald has said “I have always treated women with great respect.”    That, my friends, is just one of the lies he uses to persuade.  The sexist man is the last person to realize he is sexist if he ever does.

I think for many women who plan to vote for Trump the real reason is that their dislike, and possibly hatred for one woman with a different political ideology than theirs, grants them the ability to ignore hurtful and vicious behavior that many of them have had to deal with, and been scarred by, in their lifetime.  In spite of the pain of those experiences, they will vote for a man who personally attacks women on a fairly regular basis.

If that is the case, admit it to yourself and stop defending Donald Trump’s sexist behavior.

  1. What Trump offers first and foremost is a chance to hurt other Americans. Every miserable act of cruelty he commits is further evidence that he is willing to make good on this, which is exactly why his followers love his malice in all its forms.

    • For the life of me, I can’t figure out why anyone with a legitimate brainwave would see anything in him that leads them to believe he would represent their interests.
