“<Song lyrics too explicit and vulgar to be posted here.>”

I get it. What Trump said was sexist.
But, Mrs. Clinton, he wasn’t talking about sexual assault… he was talking about getting laid by groupies. If you want to talk about sexual assault, go to your husband’s bedroom and have that conversation. Just make sure you knock first.
The funny part is that what Trump said was true. Whether you’re a pro athlete, musician, actor, politician, etc., there are women who care about nothing else and are willing to let you do anything in the world to them. You know… they start acting like how a lot of men act around women all the time.
I’m sorry, but do you expect any celebrity to respect a woman who will sleep with them on the spot? Do you expect anybody to respect any person who would do that?
Also, before women get too upset about not being respected, they need to understand they’re building a culture in which they don’t even respect themselves. You can talk all you want about how men objectify women, and I’d probably agree with at least some of it. But, women are far worse about it than men are.
Yeah, yeah… I know… movies targeted at men have boobies in them. Magazines targeted at men have boobies in them. Toothpaste targeted at men would sell a lot better if it where somehow connected to boobies.
And, yes.. porn. Got it.
But, here’s the thing… all of that stuff is targeted at men. None of it is telling women how to act. That stuff is telling men how to act and it’s poisonous, dangerous and is corroding the hearts and minds of men.
But, you can’t look to men as the scapegoat for how women are treated. The people telling women how they should be treated are women.
The top female musical artists are Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Miley Cirus and others who sing, dress and act like whores. These are the examples who communicate what acceptable behavior is to our young women and, more importantly, establish an expectation of how a relationship with a man should work.
For example, who could forget that timeless Beyonce classic “Parition” which talks about respectfully loving a woman:
“Now my mascara running, red lipstick smudged/ Yeah, he’s so horny he wants to f—/ He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse/ He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown/ Oh Daddy, Daddy, he didn’t bring the towel/ Oh baby, baby, we better slow it down”
Of course, Beyonce should have said, “He Bill Clinton’ed”. And in this case, I guess she’s the Monica Lewinsky. But, hey.. it’s art, right?
Women complain about unreasonable standards to which they are held regarding their bodies, their looks ,etc. Well, the magazines women buy most are magazines that tell them they should be a size 2, wear $700 skirts and which deify the very women no self-respecting woman should ever want to be. Who publishes these magazines? Women.
These same magazines tell women to be more sexually aggressive and more promiscuous. Ladies, I have a secret for you: Most men LOVE women who are sexually aggressive and promiscuous.
And by “love”, I mean “love to have sex with”.
But, they absolutely do not respect these women. In fact, these women are just throwaways.
Listen: MEN DO NOT RESPECT SEXUALLY PROMISCUOUS WOMEN. Men just like to screw them. But, they will never, ever respect them.
The highest selling book series bought by women was written by a woman: The Grey Series, in which the heroine is basically just a container for Mr. Grey’s DNA. I guess Trump’s comment would have perfectly acceptable had it been said by this guy.
I’m not excusing anything Trump said, because it’s not about that. It’s about knowing you can’t have it both ways. If you want to be respected, then demand respect from everyone – don’t give a free pass to other women who are actively trying to bring you down to their level.
Ladies, if you’re going to start getting pissed off because you’re not being respected, then stop buying those records, magazines and books. Stop allowing your character and integrity to be eroded by women who have no character or integrity. THEN, you can worry about how someone said something that offended you.
Because, honestly… if you buy into the rest of that crap, then was Trump that far off the mark?
