How to Get away with Sexual Harassment

Post by Wondering on Fri Aug 07, 2015 4:39 pm

It's easy enough to dismiss this because it's Donald Trump, so of course he's a sexist asshole. But the strategy he employed and the sorts of things he said are things I've heard many many others say, both personally and not. I think the analysis in the article is spot on.

http://www.vox.com/2015/8/7/9114943/donald-trump-sexism-debate

One thing it left out was that in the end, he's basically saying, "Now that you're not playing the role of the proper woman I want you to play, I will turn my sexism on you, too. (Other women, beware what happens when you challenge!)"

Of course, most of this strategy isn't specific to sexism, either. It can be used to disregard any group.

Someone must have summed that up for Trump. I don't think he has the attention span to read that much. Wink

The tactics outlined in the article are so very effective and so very common.

The thing that bothered me most about the situation (I've mostly been ignoring all Trump coverage outside of the Onion) was a lady newscaster on cnn made a comment about how republican women would react to the comments and it definitely made it seem like this situation was only relevant to women--male voters were completely free (and expected) to ignore Trump's grossness.

He is just the epitome of a dude who's never even questioned whether or not he's right about anything. He just assumes he is.

My husband said Trump is privilege personified.
