When a Sexual Perpetrator Runs For President


I don’t usually post about politics, but by now I think silence is a crime.

When a sexual perpetrator runs for president, don’t accept his degrading comments about women as “locker room talk”.  Don’t let boys think that’s just the way men speak.  Don’t let girls expect so little from their male peers.

When a sexual perpetrator runs for president, don’t dismiss the private confession of his crime as mere lewd or vulgar comments.  Don’t forget these were violations of real, breathing people.  Don’t euphemize sexual assault.

When a sexual perpetrator runs for president, don’t remind us that women have husbands, fathers, and brothers.  Don’t act like women only matter because they are related to men.  Don’t tell us you care because there are women in your life because you should care regardless.

When a sexual perpetrator runs for president, don’t let him win.
