Trump has his "Grab 'em by the P*ssy" Moment

New 2005 video from Washington Post reveals GOP Nominee joking about sexual assault.

Warning: Explicit language

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married.”

"I did try and fuck her... she was married"

“Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”

“Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Full Video

These are some of the words the Republican Presidential nominee said about his pursuit of women on the set of “Days of Our lives” back in 2005. The full video is in the link provided.

Though the audio is disgusting, lewd, and promoting sexual assault, I am not surprised. The way the GOP nominee has acted his entire public life, way before he pursued a political career, it has been clear as day how he sees women. As objects. He has called them “fat pigs,” “slobs,” “dirty animals,” and the list goes on. GOP leaders had already stooped to new lows after overlooking their nominee’s previous behaviors. However, it seems they may have reached the floor of their tolerance with none being able to defend their candidate’s remarks in the video released by the Washington Post.

The remarks may have been said in private yet that does not make them acceptable. What someone says in private tends to be what they truly believe and what the GOP’s nominee described was sexual assault. To simply “just start kissing” a woman, or far less “grab her pussy,” without her consent is sexual assault. He continues to describe rape by bragging about how his celebrity presence gives him the power to “do anything. Whatever the purpose of this bragging he seems to think this sort of behavior is acceptable and will garner him support from his friends.

This sort arrogant treatment of sexual assault is the definition of rape culture. When it is presented as sort of a punch line men will see it as less serious. The worse part is though this individual may not just be theoretically bragging about this but has been accused of sexual assault many times. Numerous former employees, a Miss USA contestant, and even his ex wife Ivana have accused him of unpardonable sexual behavior. His ex wife Ivana, in a sworn statement in 1989 during her divorce, had said she was brutally raped by her husband.

This is an individual who is running for the highest form of public office in the country. It is an office where you are held to the highest ethical and moral standard. The fact that the Republican nominee has been accused by many women of sexually assaulting or raping them does not shock me. However, what does is how far he has come in this election. The word to describe how I felt after listening to this latest audio is not upset, but livid. This disgusting excuse for a human being does not deserve the vote of a single woman. The man said he would date his own daughter if he could. In a Howard Stern interview said it’s alright to call his daughter Ivanka “a piece of ass.” No sir, it is not alright. Many people have fought bravely in the last decade and so to change the rape culture present in America. Tried to end the objectification of women and teach our youth what consent is. Still, how can we tell our children it’s not okay to simply grab people by their genitals when a man so close to the presidency is bragging about it? The election is a month away. If you’re still voting for this man I ask you to play the above video to your mother, daughter, wife, or girlfriend, look them in the eye and tell them this is the man you want to be your president. This is an individual who does not want to Make America Great Again. He wants to Make America Rape Again.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
