Trump's Latest Comments About Women Are Rape Culture in a Nutshell

Emma Gray - The Huffington Post

October 9, 2016

“Grab them by the p***y,” Donald Trump says. “You can do anything.” (David Gotham)

“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful [women]. I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Donald Trump can be heard saying to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush in an explicit and uncensored 2005 video recording obtained by The Washington Post’s David A. Fahrenthold and released Friday.

“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump continues. “You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” (Watch the video footage above)

These comments are among the most lewd and repulsive of what the public has heard the Republican presidential candidate say about women. Americans are well aware that Trump has a history of misogyny, ranging from attacking the appearances of women he dislikes, to shaming a woman breastfeeding, to fat-shaming a beauty queen, to sexually harassing women who worked on “The Apprentice,” to rating women on a numerical scale.

In Trump’s world, women are objects - objects that only hold a value based on how physically attractive he personally finds them to be. And if women are objects, rather than whole human beings, it follows that Trump must deserve them. Women are things. And when he wants them, he wants them.

As he says to Bush: “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

This is what rape culture looks like.
