Republicans Absolutely Do Not Care If Trump Raped Someone, And They Never Will

You may be wondering why this story is not "bigger news," why it is not all we are talking about right now. And the reason for that is not only are we in no way surprised or astonished by this news, but because we know it's not going to fucking matter. It is a depressing reason, but it is the truth. We watched as Brett Kavanaugh got appointed to the Supreme Court with the allegations against him. We watched as Alabama very nearly elected Roy Moore as a Senator. We have seen 21 other women accuse Trump of sexual assault, and though we cared, it has been very clear that his supporters do not. Of course they don't. They voted for him after he announced on tape that he regularly "grabbed women by the pussy" without their consent. They know what he is and they don't care. They're not going to care, and we know they're not going to care. Women, especially, know they are not going to care.

It's depressing to know that they are not going to care. That they will make whatever excuses they need to, just as they will with anything else he says or does. It is depressing to be constantly reminded of that each time something like this comes out. We do not want to have to go through the part where we hear or read the excuses. It is exhausting and it sucks.

The best thing we can all do now is to simply support E. Jean Carroll, and to support any other women brave enough to come out and accuse Donald Trump of sexual assault. Well, that and hope that more of the 100 million people who didn't come out to vote last time will come out and vote this time. The Trump voters are lost to us, but they might not be.

They do not care because as far as they are concerned women have no agency

1. Try to imagine if Obama was accused of this

24/7 coverage on all channels and the cover of Time. This? Just another day in Trump World. And yes, women exist to please men, pump out babies, cook and clean.

2. What really depresses me is that the #MeToo movement picks and chooses who it will and

will not hound to the ends of the earth.

3. as with most things with Republicans, the only way they'd care is if it was their daughter

and then only because it would constitute violation of their "property"...actually if it was Bonespurs, they'd probably just try to convince the daughter that she should feel grateful for the attention from such a great man....

4. Republicans view rape and sexual assault as inherent male privilege

They love to call women who claim to have been raped "liars" -- and the facts or corroborating evidence will never matter to them, no matter how damning. They'll still call women & girls who claim to have been raped or assaulted "liars" and blame them for the attack, because they CAN'T say what the TRUTH is, which is that they JUST. DON'T. GIVE. A. DAMN.

RESPECT for the humanity of America's females is what's missing here. The opposite of love isn't "hate". It's this kind of INDIFFERENCE to the humanity of others - especially females.

I've said this for years: 1. They don't disbelieve women and girls when it comes to sexual assault and rape or unwanted pregnancy. They just don't give a damn; 2. Worldwide INDIFFERENCE to the humanity of over half of its population (females) will be the DEMISE of the human race.

Humans are STUPID.

Period.

12. John Lennon wrote a song about it.

It’s called “Woman Is the Nigger of the World.”

That’s the title.

Here are the lyrics:

https://www.google.com/search?q=woman+is+the+nigger+of+the+world&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari#wptab=s:H4sIAAAAAAAAAONgVuLRT9c3LDTNMi8uMMp4xOjJLfDyxz1hKYdJa05eY7Ti4grOyC93zSvJLKkU0uFig7KUuASkUDRqMEjxcaGI8Oxi0ktJTUsszSmJL0lMsspOttLPLS3OTNYvSk3OL0rJzEuPT84pLS5JLbLKqSzKTC5exGqclZ-Rp5CTmpeXn6dQnp-bmKeQWaxQkpGqkJeZnp5apJCfBuaV5xflpChAdAEABvltTsMAAAA

The song never got much airplay, probably because of the shock value of its title. But the message was brutally clear.

Being female is the most powerful portal that allows me to “get” or even begin to understand the black experience, even while white.

10. I've thought this for some time....

It's like someone picked up one edge of the country, and all the racists, misogynists, authoritarians, sociopaths and run of the mill jackasses all slid to one side....the rethuglican party. It's the greatest collection of nefarious flotsam since the Know Nothings.

13. ...and every democrat is a "woman" to the Pukkkes:

weak, stupid, expendable crybabies always interrupting the Real Men to try to make them behave. Girly Democrats are fearful, worried over unimportant things (domestic living conditions, child care, healthcare, humanity, you know, crap.)

And women definitely don't want war, which is the PuKKKes' absolutely favorite plaything, and the PuKKKes know democrats want to take it away from them.

So Republicans say fuck women, fuck democrats, fuck minorities, fuck kids, ratchet up the anti abortion and immigration atrocities so we're too busy to fight, and call in the military if we whine and squawk for blankets and soap.

"Hey, the Men are talking here. Shut up." So Murder Turtle takes our rights away decade after decade, laughing and nibbling at his lettuce.

god, I hate them.

14. Rape is not a big deal to Republicans unless...

It's a black man raping a white woman.

15. Every Rethug believes that rape is a right and a rite of passage...

Without exception. They should all be locked up.
