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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

10295

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
