She said she would be offended if Trump said those things about her but she is not offended by the fact that he said them about other women? Hmmm…and all the pragmatic women are happy to wait for a misogynistic and vulgar bully to get solutions for them. I have yet to meet a woman that would agree with her.

Fucking bitch. I am sick of women being so damn blind and stupid. I want to call her all kinds of names. I understand why white men (who are assholes) get behind Trump. But really? How fucking STUPID is this country? Ireland here I come!

Btw I didn't mean ALL white men. I meant ONLY the ones who support him. Like a client I talked to who was trying to convince me that Trump was the best thing ever. I should probably edit that, but. I can't so there is my disclaimer.

There are a lot of people who will hold their nose and vote for Hillary Clinton.  And there are a lot of others who will hold their nose and vote for Donald Trump.  That's going to be a normal reaction, picking "Oh, SHIT!!!" over "Hell, NO!!!"

The people who seem to slavishly worship either one of them just nauseate me.

Republicans point to the many women at Trump's rallies as evidence women will vote for Trump.

Yes...REPUBLICAN women. About 3/4 of women in the US are not Republican.

I usually don't believe much of what any politician or business / corporate entity says, although we have to function somehow in a society despite the culture of lies. Does that congressperson believe what she is saying, or it that just her PR role? Who knows. Trump is just a monkey throwing shit at a tree, sometimes something will stick. I suspect Trump doesn't believe his own statements, he knows he's just making it up, or maybe he doesn't think that deep. Clinton is more sophisticated, but not more believable. However, she seems to have been a competent senator and sec of state. I suspect she is mentally weighing every word she says and thinking about the potential outcome, although sometimes she slips up. Sanders? who knows, kind of a one-note opera in the theme of "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more" - although what he says resonates for me. I just hope Sanders isn't today's version of Ralph Nader, without whom we would not have had President GWB.

The American primary system obviously needs an overhaul. It's possible for someone (Clinton) to secure the nomination months and months in advance of the nominating convention. What we see now is the Sanders is peaking later than Clinton and cannot gain enough delegates to win the nod even though he's probably more popular than Clinton at the moment.

The Dems need to throw the current primary process out. If states like Iowa and New Hampshire want to continue to do something early, great, but let it just be a "beauty contest." The actual primary vote should be about a month before the convention with every single voter being a delegate. No more delegates representing numbers of people. No more courting delegates, lobbying delegates, or threatening delegates.

While the establishment in the party are right that "the rules are the rules so don't complain if the rules don't work in your favor," they have yet to make a convincing case that the rules as they are now are good, much less democratic.

I have heard it reported that there are a section of the female population in the U.S.A. that would be proud to say that they are not feminists. They have no real problem with the rhetoric of Trump and some would even see his misogynistic pronouncements as being realistic. They might say “Yes, I am cranky at certain times of the month” and therefore Trump is just being forthright with his comments.

I am confused with the new “romance” between Megyn Kelly and Trump. Maybe Faux News is thinking they need to get onside with Trump – and his supporters – so that they are on the winning side. Maybe she will have her contract renewed with more lucrative terms if she and the next POTUS are on friendly terms?

Maybe I am too cynical for my own good. Anyway I am happy to live in denial for a little while longer and believe that the Trump campaign will end after the riots in New Mexico on June 7th……

Normally, I wouldn't feel right speaking for women, but in this case, I'm pretty sure I won't be contradicted...

A lot of especially young women do not call, or think of themselves as, "feminists." This is mostly because they don't want to be confused with mainstream (Ms. Magazine) feminism or the more extreme anti-male factions.

There is even a pro-porn faction of feminism. Indeed, almost all of the female performers, producers, directors, photo/videographers, etc., will tell you they are feminists. And they will tell you as much with greater force and conviction than many a college girl or young businesswoman.

Feminism isn't a monolith in the US. It's defined various ways.

This doesn't mean that the nonfeminiists don't care about reproductive rights and various metrics of equality. Very few "nonfeminists" will be voting for Trump.
