Why Trump Reminds Me Of My Abuser, How Melania Might Be Happy He's Losing

Why Trump Reminds Me Of My Abuser, How Melania Might Be Happy He's Losing

People wonder why people, especially women, are sympathetic towards Melania, we saw photos and videos of her rejecting his PDA multiple times, her trying desperately to play her public role well, how her body language betrays her and made her relatable at the same time. 

It's an understandable response on our part; there's something enjoyable about watching a man who thinks he can grab women's genitals with impunity being rejected by his wife. And for those of us who find it hard to fathom how any woman could stand to be in the same room as Trump—let alone his bed—it's satisfying to believe that Melania might hate him just as much as we do.

Transgender Nikkie de Jager Comes Out, Woman Fired Over One Post

Transgender Nikkie de Jager Comes Out, Woman Fired Over One Post

According to a joint investigation by In Other Words and artnet News—which together gathered and analyzed data from international auctions, leading galleries and the Art Basel fair—it is clear that the art market overwhelmingly finds greater value in work produced by men than that made by women. 

More than $196.6 billion has been spent on art at auction between 2008 and the first five months of 2019. Of this, work made by women accounts for just $4 billion—around 2 percent.

It’s no secret that the beauty and cosmetics industry is geared toward female consumers. According to Euromonitor, global per capita spending on grooming products was $6.50 for men in 2015 and $58.50 for women. Despite that fact, most high-level decision makers in the industry are men. Though the beauty industry fares better in comparison to other sectors such as health, banking, technology and energy, beauty brands still have an average of just 29 percent female leadership across boards and executive teams, according to the LedBetter Gender Equality Index.

Get The L Out Asia Manifesto (Group renamed as Asian Femifesto)

Get The L Out Asia Manifesto (Group renamed as Asian Femifesto)

I'm the founder of Get The L Out Asia, a grassroots volunteer organisation that believe true lesbian independence can only be found in solidarity with feminists. 

Inspired by Get The L Out UK, who sounded the alarm about how trans ideology has affected lesbians, including coming out with the idea of cotton ceiling (how lesbian existence is a threat to T+ advancement, similar to the workplace glass ceiling that prevent the advancement of minorities), trans activists led by trans women have been calling young lesbians who refuse to date or sleep with them as transphobic and transphobia, distorting trans rights as an excuse for abusive behaviours.

The Unholy Trinity Of Radical Feminism, Religious Bigotry & TERFs

The Unholy Trinity Of Radical Feminism, Religious Bigotry & TERFs

WoLF made a public statement to work together with Family Policy Alliance, a conservative Christian organisation. I heard rumours through the grapevine about their conservative connection. Religious bigotry is so far away from feminism, I didn't believe them, I also didn't want to believe them, I have witnessed my Christian ex as well as my LGBT friends becoming suicidal after conversion therapy, I KNOW how life threatening it is.

They also release a "Declaration of no confidence in LGB movement leadership", so I guess they think religious white masters are suppose to evangelise deviant lost LGB sheep into their flock of "traditional families", a term that will alert any LGBTQ, we know it means heterosexual families with a subservient stepford wife, suburban picket fence and 2.5 kids in gendered pink and blue clothing. 

An organisation that is anti abortion, anti homosexuals, upholds religious patriarchal ideas of female servitude, it is so far away from feminism, it's mind boggling. One of the board members is Patrick Caruana, he has been chairman of FPA board of directors since 2013. Prior to that, he was chairman of the Focus on the Family board of directors.
