Trump Gives Sex a Bad Name! Is a Pussy By Any Other Name the Same?
Two years ago, the nation heard candidate Donald Trump call a woman’s genitals a “pussy” and brag about sexual assault. What a terrible irony that exactly two years later President Donald Trump continued his sexual assault on American women by successfully nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh — a man credibly accused of sexual misconduct—to the highest court in the land.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony is just the latest example of the #MeToo movement’s courageous “silence breakers” confronting the “nasty” fact of “rape culture.” If we’re ever going to rehabilitate widespread sexual harassment and assault by men in every sector of society, we need to take the #MeToo conversation to the next level and talk about sex in a new way that doesn’t titillate, but educates and elevates. As a society, we need some adult sex education so we can finally grow up.
And the word “pussy” is a great place to begin.
