If You're A Woman Not Repulsed By Trump, Check Your Pulse, Because You Might Be Dead

If You're A Woman Not Repulsed By Trump, Check Your Pulse, Because You Might Be Dead

How could any person, especially a female, support Trump after all he's said and done?

A plethora of sexist words and insulting remarks have come from Donald Trump in time he's been President of the United States.

His actions have affected women on a personal and physical level. Simply keeping up with all that he's said done has been such a soul-crushing task. The way Trump views women only adds fuel to the sexist, patriarchal wildfire that rages in our country. Instead of implementing positivity and equality, he's granting men the rite of passage to behave as he has, on numerous occasions.

Any female (or human) who isn't upset with our Trump's time in office is either aloof or brain dead. If this is you, here are 10 separate examples of his sexist behavior that you may have missed.

1. He signed an executive order to undo President Obama's Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order.

Doing this eliminated the requirement for federal contractors to inform employees with different information about their pay, such as hours, overtime earnings, and pay deductions. This was one of the few ways our government evaluated and recorded whether or not men and women were receiving equal pay. Wage transparency aside, this order also put an end to forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment.

This means sexual harassment claims are forced to be handled privately instead of in a public court.

2. He tweeted that sexual assault in the military is to be expected.

3. He signed an anti-abortion policy.

This order, known as the Mexico City Policy or the Global Gag Rule by critics, prohibits foreign aid from offering ANY services related to abortion. This completely cuts funding to health care providers. Even if funds are raised independently, aid cannot be offered.

4. He suggested women who have abortions should be punished.

During a town hall meeting in 2016, Trump had a long discussion with Chris Matthews about abortion. This came directly from the transcript.

Matthews: "Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no as a principle?"

Trump: "The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment."

Matthews: "For the woman."

Trump: "Yeah, there has to be some form."

5. He WROTE that women are manipulative.

In Trump: The Art of the Comeback, Trump wrote: “Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.”

6. He signed a bill that overturns protection for Title X grantees.

This bill allows the U.S. to block funding for abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood. State and local governments can also refuse funding for family planning services related to contraceptives, STI's, fertility, cervical and breast cancer screenings, and pregnancy care. Clinics are now blocked from receiving any Title X money or Medicaid reimbursements for such services.

7. He called women "pieces of ass."

"You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass," Trump said in an interview with Esquire in 1991.

8. He proposed cuts that would greatly affect the Violence Against Women Act.

The VAGA was put in order to help survivors of domestic and sexual violence, supporting efforts to reduce sexual assault. Although it says "women" in it, the bill is gender-neutral. It also includes funding for rape crisis centers and hotlines, legal aid, and services for victims with disabilities. This is just one of the 17 federal programs Trump wants to get rid of. The Hill reported that Trump might eliminate the Office on Violence Against Women completely. *SIGH*

9. He clearly said Carly Fiorina could not be President because of her face.

Trump said this to Rolling Stone about his Republican primary campaign opponent: “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

10. He implied women's professional success came from their looks.

"It's certainly not groundbreaking news that the early victories by the women on The Apprentice were, to a very large extent, dependent on their sex appeal," Trump wrote in How to Get Rich.

I don't know about you, but I am not proud to call this commander-in-chauvinism my president.

He Changed Everything.

My soul is richer & my heart is fuller 

Sept 2013 I found myself writing to an evangelist Jennifer Beckham looking for more, looking for answers cause at the time I was in a dark place, and stuck no matter what I did. She wrote back! I cried as I read her respond. She sent me scriptures of who god is and what he wants for us. God says we are more than conquers and endurance develops strength and character. She encouraged me that I was on the right track. Not to give up and she would be praying for me. I saw Jennifer Beckham at a conference that year. I don't remember what she specifically talked about but I remember the feeling. The feeling of wanting to burst out crying, I could feel my eyes being filled with tears, and my heart racing but I wouldn't let out the tears. My pride was too big. I wanted to be strong so I did my best to hold it all in, and I did. At this conference they offered the audience who wanted to go up for prayer and dedicate their life to Jesus Christ. Surprisingly I went up, but I went up with other people that were seeking out salvation. I wasn’t sure if I was going up to support the other people or if it was truly for me. I was confused, even though I said the prayer. I became more confused as the days went on and I wasn't feeling a difference in my life. Nothing was changing. I started reading the bible and many books, listening to sermons, and surrounding myself with positive people. I gave my life to Jesus, but I didn't feel like I was set FREE! I continued feeling empty, lost, broken, guilty, and hurt from the past. There were so many days where I just wanted to give up. Almost felt pointless to fight for my life. At this point in my life I didn't know God very much, but I had just a little bit of faith. My faith was a big as a mustard seed and God took care of the rest. Day by day, year by year I started noticing my life changing. I noticed I was changing. I started feeling happy with who I was and where I was in life. I no longer questioned God about the things that happened to me. In my heart I was ok with the wounds, the hardships, and trials from the past because I now understood those wounds and trials. I realized I was SET FREE! not perfect but set free. I started understanding who I was as a child of our heavenly father. Now it’s Jan 2018 and I’m in awe of who I am and where I am in life, all because of Jesus. His so faithful! I think of the favor, the grace, his mercy, his love, his joy and blessing that he gives me even when I’m undeserving of it, it’s overwhelming. He has never left me nor forsake me. I can say Jesus you changed everything and my heart so forever thankful. 

Today, I encourage you like Jennifer Beckham encouraged me. Keep going and don't give up. No matter what your past looks like believe in your heart that you were created for greatness. Don't let your past determine your future, be the change you want in your life. You have it in you. There is so much more to life, don't miss out on it. It's time to take back your happiness, love, joy, freedom and so much more. It's time to take back EVERYTHING the enemy has taken from you. God has made you an overcomer. I speak it right now, that you will be victorious in 2018 and the years to come. Remember, God loves you! 

Psalm 136:26 (AMP) O give thanks to the God of heaven, for his mercy and loving-kindness endures forever!

Oprah Winfrey Running For President?

Golden Globe speech sparking some ideas.

As of Sunday, January 7, 2018, Oprah Winfrey made a few remarks during her Golden Globe speech, hinting to her possibly running for president in 2020. Later, two of her friends, who wish to remain anonymous confirm this speculation. One of the friends said that this idea has been looming for months now but that Winfrey did not come to a conscience yet.

The main point of Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes was the #MeToo movement. She also made a statement of, "A new day is on the horizon", which many liberal celebrities and viewers heard as a possible campaign cry.

At the moment, there is no serious talk right now about her running for president, but some of her fans have voiced their opinions through Twitter and Facebook after she had her speech. Along with her fans, her long time partner, Stedman Graham also mentioned that her running for president was a possibility

However what Winfrey does not have is political experience. When she needs political advice she looks to the Obamas and she fully endorsed Hillary Clinton. We may have our next Democratic candidate for the 2020 election. Although the race for president does not start until after the 2018 midterms, many candidates are getting a head start. Maybe this is her making her first move. What do you think? Will America choose another TV star as our president?
