No, you really shouldn’t, but let’s get into the why of the matter.
Newsfeeds far and wide on your Facebook timelines have probably had at least a few people complaining during Trumps Inauguration in obvious righteous indignation about how Trump is grabbing women by the pussy and some fuss about “sexual assault”, #NotMyPresident, blah blah blah.
That’s merely the main culprit that rises to the top of the other myths being spread by supposed “IFuckingLoveScience” rationalists who populate social media streams with their absolute adherence to logic, reason, Trump hate, and using the words “fascism” and “Hitler” to refer to anything they don’t like.
Why this focus on a story that is now at least 3 months old?
My guess is that the bit about him being unconstitutional – which isn’t necessarily an inaccurate claim – fell on deaf ears because those same people screaming about it being violated didn’t care ONE DAMN BIT about our precious constitution during the last 16 years of Bush and Obama.
What they really care about is that the other side is doing it now and is now leveling the playing field hence terms attacks with words like “whitelash”, “fascism”, and dat racism/sexism/phobia stuff. The “anger” over the supposed attack on a free press – namely just Sean Spicer telling the press how the White House isn’t going to kiss their ass anymore – is an example of how their valued control over the media isn’t having the influence it should on us sheeple. (Trump is going remember who lied, slandered, and attacked him over the campaign cycle and treat them in a manner they deserve. )
Obama lovers who didn’t seem to have a problem with drone strikes on sheep herders, hundreds of executive orders, starting proxy wars in Syria, plundering Libya, and too many other issues to put in one post never made any squealing noises about it.
I’ve seen it from friends, family, and all across the web. Well what did Trump actually say concering #PussyGate? Context is usually important. No, wait it’s ALWAYS IMPORTANT. Straight from the fake news that is the New York Times – thought at least they didn’t fall for the golden showers rained on prostitutes anonymously sourced transcript like Buzzfeed.
“Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.
Bush: Uh, yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs.
Trump: Oh, it looks good.”
Wait, did you see that? In there was this part about them LETTING him do it. That sounds….. consensual, rather than any nonsensical wails about sexual assault.
Of course, this will never be the end of it. That odd “enthusiastic affirmative consent” dogmatic fantasy logic that somehow has been implemented in New York and California is applied by our Trump alarmists for a few reasons:
(1) They need some reason – no matter how fallacious, incorrect, and flat-out wrong to weaponize the people on their feed who like 99% of us think ACTUAL sexual assault is bad with a deliberately flawed interpretation of what was actually said.
(2) Locker room talk is something these people doesn’t believe exist until their skeletons are revealed in which they’ve been saying all sorts of un PC stuff in their chats, messengers, and snaps. Here they are simply being dishonest with themselves for purely political reasons because it’s Trump. Whatever.
(3) The real Kool-aid believers here that actually think this was sexual assault because of the social justice definitions they’ve absorbed as gospel over their time being “educated“, checking their privilege, tweeting in their bubble chambers about oppression, and looking down their noses at us “ist” and” ism” inbred deplorables have a worldview that is so based in this rhetoric that they can’t see past their own self-induced haze.
(4) Many of these “activists” marched and participated in some rants, signage, and ramblings via the Women’s March about how Trump is supposedly against Women’s rights – whatever that even means these days.
If you aren’t talking about how rape culture supposedly exists on campuses and instead focusing on tackling our trade deficits in the issues on the Whitehouse site, you hate women. If you aren’t spouting more about LGBT stuff, even though we’ve spent the last decade bitching about it = homophobia, transphobia, etc. That should tell you the intellectual honesty of these people.
NO. You shouldn’t waste time on social media bothering to point out the nonsense conclusions made about #PussyGate. Now, bothering to share this post and making your own statuses about the dishonesty floating out there is not a waste.
However, I wouldn’t bother answering any loud rant-like spew retorts about it. Not unless there is that rare chance they are genuine in their desire for conversation about it. Likely, you will simply make your point, agree to disagree, and move on.
Don’t lose friends or family over it, just spend your time in honest discussion and debate with people who can get past the word “Trump” when they look at the logic of an argument. I still advise not bothering to do that over social media. These conversations are best had in person.
An article via the Spectator posted an article about why Trump won entitled, “Trump How Did This Happen,” and it argues how politics became something to be done to us by our enlightened non bigoted peers costal elite peers and in turn treated us like trash. Us trash grew tired of it both politically and in regards to even bothering to refute the accusation of “racist” for the 100th time. An astute comment makes this point better than I can:
“There is no adult rationalizing with people who refuse to be adult or rational. In a way (and this is not too much of a stretch), it is a furtherance of these gender “identity issues.” The underlying motive is to negate a fundamental reality so that they can tell you what truth is in any given point in time. So–by design–there is no foundation upon which to have an honest conversation on ANY topic. They want control, not collaboration.”
