• Sexism is OK (As Long as it’s Aimed at Melania, Apparently)

    She doesn’t sleep with him. They have separate beds, according to one anonymous source. And him?



    He has had a lot of women, some public and much, much younger, some only rumored about (but we know.) One of the most talked-about involved him, an older, powerful man, bedding a younger woman infatuated with him, and likely controlled by him.

    And it’s apparently OK to talk about all this, and shame the dutiful wife, even by feminists. At least as long as it is about Melania Trump, and not, for heaven’s sake, about that other White House power “couple.”

    Christina Cauterucci, writing in left-of-center Slate, headlines the anonymous-sourced based news that Donald and Melania sleep in separate beds. See, that implies they don’t… you know… have sex.

    Now normally a) where people sleep is not news in any way; b) where people sleep is their private business and c) a woman in 2017 should not be shamed or commented on in the media for whatever choices she makes regarding her married life, and certainly not for her (implied and unconfirmed) choices regarding sex. What is it, 1950 at Slate?

    It apparently is 1950. Because writer Cauterucci says all that shaming is actually OK, because it’s Trump. She writes:

    …with this particular president, [it] does matter. Trump used a big-powerful-rich-daddy persona to win the presidency, and he painted that persona with the help of the ever-younger string of women he’s married and claimed to sleep with. All three of his marriages generated press “leaks” that suggested Trump was great at sex and had a lot of it with his respective wives, sometimes multiple times a day. The implication to anyone with eyes is that a past-his-prime man uses money and power to get sex and arm candy service from traditionally beautiful women. The report turns that implication on its head.

    Um, OK?

    But I really don’t get any of this. If one assumes all those pejorative statements about Trump are true, why does his sleeping arrangement with his spouse matter in any way? Is the writer, what, reverse slut-shaming Trump, maybe stud-shaming, mocking him for not be the swordsman she feels he’s claimed he is and that matters somehow? Is the point of mocking Trump and his wife to suggest he is not a stallion and, what next, should be impeached?

    No, no, here’s the point buried near the end of the piece:

    Trump’s marriage is not, like the Obamas’, a seeming match of life partners who fully respect one another’s intellects… Trump’s ignorance on policy and other issues of national importance is a point of pride for him, but when someone threatens his manly-man persona in public, it hurts.


    BONUS: The same article gets in a few sex digs on Pence, too. Here you go:

    An unofficial study of my personal opinions reveals that 100 percent of hetero couples who call one another “mother” and “father,” as Mike Pence and his wife do, sleep in separate twin beds with the sheets firmly tucked in on all sides, in formal pajamas and nightcaps, crucifix affixed on the wall where it can be seen from any potential sexual vantage point.

    Bada bing, Sexy time!

      The real reason Trump doesnt have sex with Melanie is he is so fat he can’t see his tiny digit, and Melania would need a magnifying glass to find it.

      Speaking of getting fucked, now that Trump’s popularity rating is crashing to historic lows, how soon before the right wing. fanatics dust off the false flag playbook to scare the munchkins to give up more of their rights that the “patriot” act hasn’t taken away? Their anthrax letters worked great. Maybe time for an oldie but a goodie? Iran the source this time? Nah, they would fight back. Okay, trot out some lone wolf Muslim terrorists from Syria.

      Them? Are you suggesting your poor wife has to have sex with the fat one? Or you do?

      I don’t hate the fat one. You cannot hate and laugh at someone at the same time.

      Melania? Why would anyone hate her?

      Rich.

      Again…. You have missed the entire point of Peter’s article.

      You see, Rich,…. The point being…. Sexism is bad…. Unless you are so wrapped up in hate, that conventional rules no longer apply.

      The double standard applied, if these same comments were applied to Nancy or Michelle… Hell to pay…

      Instead…. Its all good to attack a woman with an IQ higher than all of us combined….
      I mean… Damn…She speaks.. What. 7 languages???? Plus her business skills….and…from everything I have read… Very likeable.

      How many languages do you speak???

      I speak 4… Plus ASL and ESL….

      My wife… 5 languages… Plus ASL and ESL…

      She’s far smarter than either of us.

      The article was all about the double Standards applied by haters, grasping at any straw.

      Just as a effort to undermine, de- legitimize a lawfully elected President.

      Congratulations…. You took the bait…. And…. Found a way to use it to attack President Trump.

      I’m guessing here…

      But I betcha Bill and Hillary don’t sleep together, either.

      I’m also gonna go out on a limb and say that Bill and Hillary haven’t slept in the same bed for a very, very, very long time.
