Dirty game

…I know.  And I don’t really give a bumble bee’s backside worth of dang to it. Especially, when it is not of my country. But all the stuff the candidate of the most powerful nation in the world is saying makes me really gag.  “Bimbo”?  “Blood coming out of places?” “Ms. Piggy”…

Seriously?  Like, seriously?

A country would let someone like that represent them?  Tsk Tsk.

    My thoughts exactly. I’m not sure which bothers me more – that candidate who is way out there somewhere, or the fact that so many exaggerations about the other candidate are being believed by those who support The Donald. What happened to seeking the truth when reporting? Our society is messed up, I think.

      Media is the worst offender in these times. Being in a different country, I get all my news from mainstream media, and therefore, I could be swayed by how the media portrays it. I often feel that I am wrong.

      It’s unbelievable that in this day and age, someone can come out in the open and say such atrocious things – and get away with it. Even in our misogynistic third world India, public figures have become careful about what they say in public. (Not that I am defending India – we are still the worst gender offenders in the world).

    I want to say, “Not my fault, I didn’t vote for either of them in the primary!” But this is what we’re facing in November. I don’t think Hillary is a bad choice, and I’m a little fed up with people saying she’s “just as bad” as the Dump. She’s the first woman to run for President of the US, as highly qualified as any man who’s run for the the office, and I want my granddaughter to believe that she has just as much chance of leading the country as her brother or any of the boys in her future graduating class. It also exasperates me when I run into a fellow Bernie supporter who says she’d rather stay home or vote for a third party candidate than vote for Hillary Clinton. Okay, she’s not perfect. But look at the alternative. For the love of everything good, look at that man and imagine what this country will be like under a President like him.

      Oh, I am not a great fan of Hillary’s political viewpoints, and I think many of her campaign promises are just that – promises to get vote, nothing more. But we are talking politics – when have politicians delivered all their promises when elected?
      That said, if I were American, I’d vote for her. Not because she is a woman, not because her political stances are great, but because she has the grit (and note I don’t say balls – Balls don’t make you anything, as the opponent clearly shows) to lead a country. Its just pathetic that she has to work ten times as hard as an equal man to get there, just because she does not have a penis.

    I think Hillary is just as bad as Trump. Listen to her comments on Obama when she stood against him. Well, Obama is as bad as both too.

    But just because Trump is more ignorant and callous with his words doesn’t make him any worse – me thinks.

      Excuse the really rude reply Christy. Yes, all politicians have their own agenda.
      As a leader of a nation, you represent the nation and must maintain decorum.
      Crotch grabbing, even in words, is definitely not classified as decorum in my books. But then, I have had my crotch grabbed gazillion times in the public bus as I travelled to school at 13,and my breasts and other assets have been the topic of much entertainment among roadside romeos more often than I care to remember. So, excuse me if it rankles.
      If being a sex offender does not make him any worse, I don’t know what to tell you, my friend.

        It makes him worse to hang out with or talk to. But to be President? I think every guy has the tendency to say horrible thing that sound incredibly sexist. They just don’t do so around women, hence it is my humble opinion that they don’t realize how Trumpish we all are. And given that people seem okay with electing murderers and economic dimwits (which lead to suicide in the lower class – not just farmers), it seemed hypocritical that they make a fuss over Trump. But I am referring to quasi-liberals, LG. I know you don’t care about politics to find your own identity. I am sure of that. So I do understand where you come from when you say that Trump is a terrible choice.

        When I turned 18 and election time came around two months later, I was thrilled that I could officially be part of my country. Now, I dread election times because my vote will lead to some injustice somewhere, no matter for whom I vote. I can’t abstain from voting because it is my duty and such ethical drivel. So, I am not sure I disagree with you on that.

        But on the sexist bit – every man being allowed to be incredibly sexist ,as you call it, in private or public, because it is his “tendency” is the reason there are Nirbhayas in this world. Before talking about grabbing pussies, perhaps it is prudent to realise that all of us were ejected out of pussies (or close by, if C-section, don’t get technical) and were fed by the “racks” as they are called, I believe. Perhaps you need to be a woman to understand how gut wrenching it is to excuse people for being “Trumpish”.

        Again, LG, no arguments of whether or not that constitutes to horrid behavior and a patriarchal mindset. It still doesn’t make Hillary a lesser evil in my mind. Perhaps, it’s because I am a man. I am not sure if it boils down to that. But I see liberals completely ignore her placid Miss Universe speeches and instead focus on trashing Trump. And the general masses, along with the media, have started talking as she is a viable candidate because the other option is a chauvinistic green haired monster. It just doesn’t seem balanced, in my opinion. But nandri for your very well-articulated and valid points.

        Also I think Trump is an easier target to vent out against, than the husbands, fathers and brothers of families of people, who also contribute in ways, that may not be blatant or direct but just as much a determinant to women. I think it’s a more realistic and nobler fight to tackle chauvinism from within. Sorry for the long replies, but was waiting to talk to someone reasonable about this 🙂
