That Trump is an outrageous pig is no longer news. We’ve known that for some time. In fact, they say ‘all men are pigs’ and I have to oink to that. But, as Orwell wrote, some pigs are more equal than others and so Trump is clearly piggy #1. At least this week.
I propose that we all get behind condemning piggery and pass laws and impose sanctions and generally join together in setting our collective hair on fire. And chant: Bad piggies! (I am being sarcastic!)
Because, actually we have already done all that. We have passed laws, created new behaviours and changed the social status of the genders and we have all burnt our hair clean off for the last thirty or forty politically correct, holier-than-thou years.
In fact, the topic is off the rails. We now officially hate piggies even to the extent that a man is condemned for looking-with-lust at a woman. If she has been breast and lip enhanced, made up to the hilt and is semi-nude, we still really should NOT stare. It’s rude. Talking to her may even constitute harassment. That’s crazy!
So, let’s just say: that men-are-pigs is a given. And we hate piggies. We all hate piggies. Piggies are bad. Hmmm….that kinda means all men are bad, too, doesn’t it? But, don’t we just have to learn to get along….like we have for eons?
Except gay men. Or men who dress up as women. Or change their bodies to become women. There is nothing wrong with that. Flirting? Bad. Gender modification? Good. Sex in 2017? Weird.
Unless, of course, the pigs are rich. If they are rich, then they ‘can do whatever they want.’ That’s what Trump said. And we know it is true. We have seen plenty of evidence of money buying ‘accepted behaviour’ from women. In fact, money-buying-acceptance from a woman is the oldest profession, is it not?
And, if they are rich, are they not fair game? Can’t we say and do anything to get them?
So, rich pig #1 walks into a room and acts like a pig to a woman. She is appalled. Outraged. Furious at the violation of her person. She is gonna have the bad-boy arrested. Unless, of course, he then pays her some money. Then, it is OK. So, poor pigs get prosecuted, condemned, shunned and vilified but rich ones enjoy pleasant interludes with the smiling beauties.
Money makes it all right?
Am I missing something…………?
It is also true that 50 Shades of Grey – a novel about sado-masochistic sexual behaviours – was a best seller. AMONGST WOMEN! It is also true that Kim Kardashian is famous and celebrated primarily for having a big butt. It is also true that most of us ordinary piggies are gentlemen and behave ourselves.
What the hell………?
One could be forgiven for thinking that there is a weird, double-standard about our current views on sexuality that pivots not on morality, gender equality or even the safety of women but, rather, on the wealth and celebrity of the man or woman involved. Trump is a rich piggie, thus a target. Melania scored a bullseye on Fifth Avenue. He was her target. They are both living their dream. None of our business.
But his campaign made it our business and this black hole of society’s sexual hypocrisy is obviously sick.
Especially for Trump. He has been ‘doing this’ for decades.
There was some woman who claimed that he was a pig (groping, attempted rape) while she and her husband were doing business with him in Florida. FOR SIX YEARS! Then she divorced her husband and later dated Trump because ‘she was scared about her future’. Then she left Trump with a ‘settlement’.
And now Trump is condemned by her and everyone else for his pigginess. NOW? Of all times to complain about his pig slop, NOW is the time? And they quote her?
Please do not get me wrong. I am not defending Trump. He is indefensible. Readers know my feelings about him. He is way, way worse than just being a spoiled rotten piggy. And I understand that NOW is a good time politically to drive a few more nails in to his custom, self-made coffin. Go for it.
But American/western and even most foreign cultures either encourage, condone or accept that women flock to rich and powerful men. They bait their hook for even really ugly ones. And it is not because the men have great personalities. It is because they have great big wallets and everyone knows that.
And now, in western society, if it does not go as the ‘hooker’ planned, they can sue and press charges?
I am NOT defending Trump or even lecherous behaviour. I am condemning our duplicitous social values and, in particular, the GOP that could turn a blind eye to everything else Trump but the word PUSSY. What the hell is wrong with those people?
If we are going to condemn Trump for acting like a pig (and we should), we also have to ask the women what they were doing being voluntarily in the same pen with him. And, if the answer is apparent and obvious, we should just send the little piggies to separate corners and let them both wallow in their own filth.
Before you say it: I know that some women just innocently wandered within his grab-o-sphere. That’s different. I know that.
But my main point: no more collectively setting our hair-on-fire over this kind of crap!
