If You Love Your Mother, You Will Not Support Trump

The man. The myth. The misogynist.

If You Love Your Mother, You Will Not Support Trump

Donald Trump loves women, right? He has had three wives, joint ownership of the Miss Universe Pageant (until recent controversy) and even said that his daughter is so beautiful that perhaps if he was not her father they would be dating. All jokes aside, though, during a CNN interview this past year Trump claimed to "cherish women" and will "be able to do things for women that no other candidate would be able to do." Is this really believable though? With a long history of blatant sexism and misogyny, Trump's words hold little weight in regard to women.

One prominent point Trump and his supporters like to make in defense of his actions is the naturally blunt manner he exudes. Although many find The Donald's lack of political correctness refreshing, it is just an excuse to make derogatory insults toward those who challenge him, especially women. However, these ongoing slews of chauvinistic comments toward women have had little repercussion in regard to his success on the campaign trail.

Trump is close to gripping the Republican nomination as he is the GOP front-runner. More than ever it is becoming apparent his name will be on the ticket this November. And, as not only a woman but a semi-decent human, this is absolutely baffling to me. How can we expect him to civilly interact with female leaders? Will he just call them nasty pigs when they do not comply with his requests? But, you know, who has the time to respect women, or really anyone for that matter, right?

To put into perspective Trump's views toward women, let’s just take a moment to read a quote from a 1991 interview with Esquire magazine: "You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] writes as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass." You may be thinking that his comment holds little value for it being 25 years old, but luckily The Donald did not give up the blatant sexism there. More recently Trump made a jab at potential Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, on Twitter writing "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" And let’s not forget the time he told a contestant on "The Apprentice" it would be a pretty sight to see her down on her knees. The list of Trump’s disgusting and ignorant comments could go on and on.

Clearly, Trump believes that women are nothing more than objects of sex; all vagina and no brain. Women to him are just a piece of arm candy and someone who can feed his repulsive sexual appetite. Trump’s comments toward women represent a backward, hyper-masculine way of thinking that is on par with a caveman. It is about time that everyone, men and women alike, stop allowing individuals like Trump to look at women like they are not equals. And yet there are people who are voting for him?

To any man who supports Trump reading this, how would you feel if Donald was making such remarks toward your mother, sister, wife, daughter? It becomes much less comical and far more disgusting. And to any woman reading this that supports Trump, what if he said this about you? We all deserve better.

Although I cannot tell you who to vote for, I think I have made it very clear who not to vote for.
