The Gender Logs: Trump Edition

Sara McRoberts, Reporter

Donald Trump: a name that ignites disgust in millions of Americans. Last week, this man further angered the masses with his ignorant comments about women.
According to an article from the Huffington post, Trump made comments in 2005 during an interview with Billy Bush for Access Hollywood.
Trump made various sexist remarks, including how he can grab women “by the p****”
To increase his misogyny, he says, “I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful ― I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.” He finished this up by saying, “You can do anything.”
Later, he chalked up his comments as is “locker-room talk” and that all men talk this way.
I beg to differ, Mr. Trump. First, nobody wants you grabbing their anything and nobody wants your unwanted advances.
One of the biggest issues of the massive amount of issues in these nasty words you have spewed from your mouth is that you think all men talk this way.
Oh, Donald, how you have underestimated those who share your gender. Do I believe some men talk this way? Absolutely. Do I believe all men think it’s okay to act this way? Absolutely not.
You cannot grab a woman by her private parts just because you are a man and you think that’s okay. We have choices on whom we want and allow to enter our personal space, just as you have a choice to make idiotic comments to the media, Trump.
Trump has misused his voice in the public eye by justifying non-consensual behavior in men. As a progressive country, we have worked hard to remove the oppression society has imposed upon women and what women should allow.
Two steps forward, one step back, huh, Donald?
