Yes. This article has swear words + is not pro-Trump. Leave now if you think it might offend you.
I hate the way President Trump talks about women.
I hate the way President Trump talks to women.
I hate that he brushed aside his disgusting comments by referring to them as “locker room talk.”
When the TAPE was released, I had a conversation with my daughter about it.
We discussed some things like…
There are some guys who talk like this.
There are some guys who think it is okay to “just start kissing” women.
Or to “grab them by the pussy.”
Or that “you can do anything.”
But they are wrong.
Coming up to a person and doing these things is sexual assault.
This is disrespectful.
This is so fucking wrong.
As a parent, you don’t know how the conversation is being received.
You hope and pray you are getting the point across to your kid.
Is it in one ear and out the other?
You don’t know for sure.
But now, I know.
My daughter understood.
My Daughter’s Experience With A Mini-Trump
One night my daughter gets a text that a boy was saying rude things about her at school.
Daughter asked what the boy said.
The shit hit the fan.
In a conversation with one of my daughter’s friends this boy was saying things like –
She’s the prettiest girl in our grade.
She’s so good looking.
But then it turns into –
“I want to have sex with her.”
“I’d bang her so hard.”
What. The. Hell.
So in the middle of class this kid is saying this to my daughter’s friend.
My daughter is 15.
This little punk is 14 or 15.
We’re talking about high school freshmen.
Mamas, Raise Those Girls To Be Strong!
So my daughter, in her true style, gets pissed and does something.
She didn’t waste a single moment before contacting this kid and setting him straight.
She made it clear that talking about her in this way is not okay.
He knows never to talk about her this way again.
He knows never to talk to her again.
She was mad.
She knows that this is not flattering.
“I want to have sex with her” is not a pickup line.
“I’d bang her so hard” is not what a good guy says.
This is not the type of kid you want to date.
In fact, this is not the type of kid you want to be within arms length of.
Teach Your Boys What’s Acceptable
Somewhere, in my own community, there is a woman raising a son who thinks it’s okay to say these things.
Does she know what her son is saying?
Why didn’t she teach him that it was not okay?
It Starts At Home
What example are you showing your children?
Are you with a man who respects you?
Are you with a man who considers you his equal?
Do you laugh off or brush off unacceptable comments or gestures that men make?
Do you excuse bad behavior as a joke or a result of drinking?
What have you taught your son?
Does he know that women are more than eye candy for his pleasure?
Does he know how to respect a woman?
Does he know how to talk to or about a woman?
Does your daughter know how to stand up for herself?
Have you taught her to be strong?
Let Her Kick Some Ass
Women, teach your daughters to be strong.
Teach them to stand up for themselves.
Don’t have them wait around for some guy to come to their rescue.
Don’t have them wait around for you to come to their rescue.
Tell them it is okay to defend themselves.
When someone mistreats you, it is okay to get pissed.
And it is okay to turn that anger into action.
Raise her to be fierce.
Raise her to be a force to be reckoned with.
