Trump’s administration once again supports the ‘double standard’ in America. If a woman dresses in an alluring manner, she is guilty of encouraging sexual assault by men. If she is flirtatious and engages in male/female interaction, what eventually happens is her responsibility. Now, a Trump official is claiming that if a female college student consumes an alcoholic beverage, and is forced to have sexual relations with a male student against her will, she shares equal responsibility for the assault.
Candice Jackson is the head of the civil rights division at the Education Department, under Betsy DeVos. She has been linked to several extremist organizations including white nationalists.
“The accusations – 90 percent of them – fall into the category of ‘we were both drunk,’ ‘we broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided that our last [time] sleeping together was not quite right,'” Jackson told the New York Times. Really!
Jackson is typical of women who support Trump; they are not women. They hate real women and support men such as Trump who consider them valuable for a single reason, and it is not their minds.
Since Trump declared his candidacy in June of 2015, violent crime and hate crimes have increased at a frightening rate in America. These include sexual assault and domestic violence. His exposed recordings from ‘Access Hollywood,’ and ‘the Apprentice’ have encouraged men across the nation to choose dominance over their female counterparts.
Women are superior to men in many ways, but none is more evident than their ability to survive abuse from the men in their lives. They are survivors. Millions of men display a level of cowardice which is unacceptable when they physically and mentally abuse the ‘weaker sex.’ That term is so misleading. I do not know a single man who could survive the abuse many women receive at the hands of a man they have allowed into their lives.
Jackson is a member of the Republican Party which has been waging a war against women for decades. She is a traitor to womankind, and obviously out of contact with real women who face such obstacles and dangers on a daily basis.
The Trump administration; his circle of sinners; continues to prove that they are ignorant and have no interest in serving the majority of the American people.
To quote a line in a song, under Trump “It’s a Man’s World.”
