I can’t write much about the pussy grabbing misogynistic racist running for president, but Election Day is looming, so here it goes, even though it hurts my heart, brain, and vagina to do so.
I want him to lose and go away, far, far away, and then I want HRC’s primary focus to be education so that perhaps our electorate will learn enough to know when an evil person is force-feeding intolerable notions that are in fact, deplorable, and encouraging explicable acts that will harm Americans first, with global repercussions a short second.
For me, if Election Day does not reveal an overwhelming, like color the entire placemat blue, victory, then it’s a loss for all of us. If so many people find the other option acceptable, that it’s a tight race, and willingly follow and vote our nation into a dark crevasse that is easy to fall into, and will prove difficult, if not impossible, to crawl out of.
Go ahead, leave a vile comment, threaten me on social media, unfollow, unfriend, then take a good long hard look in the mirror and decide what kind of person you are, what kind of person you want to be, and if you’re satisfied with what you see, well then, yay for you and I hope you eat alone at Thanksgiving.
Why people denounce pussy grabbing comments in presidential election
There is so much that keeps me up at night, even more so as Election Day looms closer, but here is what has me seething on a regular basis.
And it’s not what DT has said or done, but rather the response of his opposers, that’s right. My own teammates are pissing me off and here’s why.
I hate the vast commentators, both male, female, and gender non-conforming (see, I was listening at BinderCon), who are placing a feather in their cap and denouncing He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named and it’s not Voldemort, because they have a wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and the belles of the ball: daughters.
Like that is the reason why they can’t vote for the GOP candidate.
Good people denouncing violence against women for the wrong reasons:
(from facebook, twitter, and overheard on soccer sidelines)
• Any one with daughters should run far away from (He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named)
• I owe it to my daughters never to support such a vile candidate.
• I could never support DT and look my wife in the eye.
• Of course I don’t support (what he said). I have girls.
• Calling all dads of girls: we can’t let him be president
• I would never support someone who threatened my wife or daughter
I wish, instead, it was because of his entitled violence against women as people, not because of a close association to the male voter.
It’s not enough to find his pussy grabbing because he can comments threatening and violent (they are far from insulting, they are threats of assault) because you have a daughter-mom-wife-niece-cousin-VIP female in your life.
These comments are inexcusable and deplorable because we are humans. All of us. Together. And violence incited against one gender is violence against all genders, and that is why you should be against any entitled pussy grabbing candidate.
Not for your daughter, or your wife, or your mom, but for your own soul and conscience and a future you want to live in, not run from.
Violence against women masked as just another day at the office reminds us, as if we could ever forget, that us girls, we’re secondary citizens. And WOC (women of color) struggle much more today, and in a He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named’s presidency, would be invisible. Or worse, disposable. Then of course, small breasted women, or bleeding women, or breast-feeding women, or fat women, we, well, you know what he said about all of us. He’s famous. He can say what he wants. Grab what he wants. We expect it.
Sadly, we do expect it, but not usually from the President of the United States wannabe. From him/her, we expect more. And hopefully, Election Day, we get it.
PS: Here’s a brilliant take, from another vagina with a brain, ICYMI.
I think we need to be telling the Trumpkin that he’s a loser. Frequently. It’s about the only thing that he can’t stand being. He (and his followers) don’t care about any of the rest. I agree with everything you’ve said and I too think Sam Bee nails it more often than not. Chin up. I’ve voted already because I’m in London. Now all I have to do is make sure everyone votes, not just for the POTUS but for all the other senators etc. We have to have a Democratic majority or we’ll be in trouble no matter who wins.
thx for the read. i can’t imagine 50% of our population feels this way; hoping it’s a loud, vocal minority. I guess we’ll know Tuesday.
