Here's an interesting idea...

"Cut her Mic"

...can someone cut Clinton & Trump's Mic?

Ugh...
From your link:
"In a conversation about sexual harassment a man asks a woman to be silenced for asking a question he doesn't want to answer. He may not have meant to, but Dr Carson gave a perfect, real-time example of exactly the kind of overbearing, condescending attitude a lot of women experience all too often and that the whole Donald Trump scandal has raised as a conversation here."

The debasing of American politics

...
Not all those at Trump rallies are bigoted. But they are prepared to stand next to someone shouting chauvinist abuse or wearing a “Trump that b*tch” T-shirt and conclude that if that’s what’s needed to defeat Mrs Clinton, then so be it. The best of Mr Trump’s supporters hope that, by letting a wrecking ball loose to demolish the slums and tenements of Washington politics, public life can be rebuilt—so that it represents real people, rather than elites and interest groups. When people conclude that politics is disgusting or absurd they lose faith in it. That usually makes things worse.

If Mr Trump actually wins the election, Republicans will have to meet the expectations he has created—of protectionism, spending increases allied to tax cuts, hostility to foreigners and a retreat from decades of foreign policy. That would make America poorer, weaker and less secure. Meanwhile, the Republican Party would still need the support of those who have cheered on Mr Trump (see Lexington). Far from being renewed, politics would become even nastier and more brutal.

If Mr Trump loses, Mrs Clinton will begin her presidency with tens of millions of people believing that she ought to be in jail. Perhaps he will lose so comprehensively that he takes the Republican majorities in both chambers down with him. That would afford Mrs Clinton at least two years, before the next mid-term elections, during which she might push through an immigration reform, increase spending on infrastructure and change the balance on the Supreme Court. These would be big achievements, but something close to 40% of voters would feel they were being steamrollered by a hostile government. Politics could become yet more polarised.

Partly because Mrs Clinton is mistrusted and disliked, the more probable outcome in November is that she will be the next president but will face a House of Representatives controlled by Republicans—and perhaps a Senate, too. This is a recipe for furious, hate-filled gridlock. There would be more government shutdowns and perhaps even an attempt at impeachment. It would also mean yet more government by executive actions and regulation to get around Congress, feeding the widespread sense that Mrs Clinton is illegitimate.

Tied down and unpopular at home, Mrs Clinton would be weaker abroad as well. She could less easily take risks by, say, standing up for trade or robustly seeing off challenges to American power from China and Russia. America’s role in the world would shrink. Frustration and disillusion would grow.

John Pilger.....well known for his prejudiced views portraying China and Russia as misunderstood and embattled 'defenders' of their countries against the depredations of the tyrannical powers of the 'West'.

What a crock. He totally ignores the internal dissent in both of these countries and claims the US is the aggressor against them. Typical of the level of 'Journalism' in the world today. Not interested in uncovering the truth, just selling more 'documentaries' that usually ignore things that don't fit their distorted view of reality.

But even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally, his assessment of Obama is spot on only missing the fact of his abject cowardice (red lines).

Too many people believe anything they see on screen(both large and small), and in print, because it doesn't require them to think. He is the Michael Moore of Australia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Pilger

Attack the messenger, not the message? He's a well respected journalist. You just don't like to see the view that a large part of the world has of America.

Well a comment regarding 2016 to the question I asked, to me seems STUPID.

Feelings are always valid.

Gary...

Then my "feeling" about you are correct?

Yes... 100%

:) :) :)

Back to The Subject (If Gary and WinterKnight will allow)

An important question:

Do those 'supporting' Hillary in this thread. Really believe she would be a Good President. Or is your vote for Hillary, really an Anti-Trump vote?

How about some uncomfortable truths about the real reason people should feel disquiet about Hilary? Forget all the sound and fury, signifying nothing, Hilary will give you more of the same policies of American hegemony that the rest of the world has come to know and love. As a choice for Americans, she is the sane choice. I don't agree with Pilger that Trump is somehow less dangerous.

However, maybe the rest of the world should support him just so we can watch America implode. Unfortunately if America goes down, it will drag us with it, and I do not want to live next door to an unstable country.

If you want real reasons not to support her, rather than the paranoid fantasies of the right wing media, read this: John Pilger: Why Hillary Clinton Is More Dangerous Than Donald Trump

Es, didn't know Canada had so many sexists.

I've only lived in Canada for 7 years.

The way you say it's so rampant, I wonder about your sanity.


Questioning a womans sanity is a standard sexist insult. Whole Phds have been done on the subject.

And if you minimize what hillary has done, it'll just keep happening. And if you're not aware of what hillary has done, you're just blocking out what doesn't fit the view you want to see.

I have tried repeatedly to find out about these accusations against Hilary, only to find out they are tenuous at best. Show me actual evidence, and I might think there is more to it than sexism. It really looks a lot like sexism though.

Gary, the truth about BLM is that it's a separatist movement. And yes, I'm sick of BLM also. If we give BLM what they want, well, just look at the areas of Paris that no longer have police protection because the separatists there have been successful.

Thats probably not true either, is it?

Es99...

Incorrect.

#1 - Your demonstrably false assertion (true to you) regarding why I am disagreeing with you. Is part of the problem in reducing, and hopefully stopping sexism and racism.

#2 - When I repeat your Posting, and simply change female, to male. It does confirm #1.

Es99... Understanding the problems. Is not the same as understanding the solutions. Attacking innocents is not acceptable.

If you think simply changing female to male makes the arguments equivalent you truly do not understand what sexism against women is. It's not just a word.

I find your attempt at reducing it to a word and then pretending that somehow you're the victim quite insulting.

What bothers me more than anything is the fact that the Politics Forum is
little more than a Sausage Fest.
The male perspective is voiced in Technicolor, but the Female perspective
is nearly non-existent, except for a few brilliant women, like Es99,
who when they bare their souls are ridiculed, beyond belief.

Exactly, which is why women don't report these things. It's why I've never reported any of the times I've been harassed, groped and verbally abused. Can you imagine going into a police station and having to tell your story to someone like Clyde and to have to convince them that, yes, what happened is actually a big traumatic deal and not a complement? Not just men being men, but a vile, frightening invasion of your person?


If they won't hear it from me, perhaps they will listen to Michelle:

Michelle Obama Denounces Trump’s Words

Es99 just loves to attack innocents.

Yes... Have arrested many males for either sexually abusing or raping females.

Yes... I have consoled many females after a brutal rape.

Es99... Your post is not only factually incorrect about me. But disgusting to anyone who has had to deal many times, with the aftermath of these crimes.

It has to be actual rape before it a problem? I see.

If you minimise what Trump has done you make sure it keeps on happening. If you defend him, you are not innocent. If you attack and belittle me when I tell you what he has bragged about doing is wrong, you are not innocent. You are very much part of the problem. You may well help pick up the pieces after its happened, but if you don't stand by me when I decry the culture that creates and supports rapists, then you are not innocent.

Sexism: sick of hearing about it.

and I'm sick of living with it.

Only one of us has the luxury of ignoring it.

I love men explaining to me what chauvinistic behaviour is, especially when it's clear they have no idea.
And chauvinism is a two way street.....

Unfortunately it seems more often to go one way rather than another.

Sexual Abusing female teachers also seem to be in the news weekly.

Therefore, according to you. I can make the same statement regarding Female Teachers?

It makes the news because it is rarer than the inverse. It also has nothing to do with anything. It is a fact that sexism is more prevalent against women than men. I am sure if you had to put up with the things women do, you would be telling me all about how you life has been consistently made more difficult because you are male. It hasn't. Your life is easier because you are a male. That is one of those pesky fact things that you have trouble with. Do you want me to list all the obstacles I've had to overcome simply because I'm female?

It will take a while and you probably won't believe me any way because I'm female.

Because I am a Male: I am (fill-in the negatives).

Es99...

Look into your heart.

You are a male raised in a patriarchal society that has given you certain expectations and privileges that you subconsciously continue to rely on. One of them is your assumption that your opinion, even as an ignorant bystander, carries more weight than it actually does. The fact that you are even arguing with me about the reality of sexism against women, is proof of that.

Since we are all so blissfully clueless, yes please do.

I know it will help us better understand your plight.

Admitting that you don't know something because you haven't lived it is a start.

Dismissing my assertions about the female experience as a 'plight' is patronising and sexist. You won't prove you somehow understand what women go or that your opinion on this matters when you continue to exhibit sexist attitudes.

Why are you offended when I point out that you haven't lived as a woman? Is it so hard to accept that in this you actually don't know, and should maybe listen?

Physically Attacked by Donald Trump – a PEOPLE Writer’s Own Harrowing Story

We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.

Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger — a looming figure — and he was fast, taking me by surprise and throwing me off balance. I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.

The butler informed us that Melania would be down momentarily, and it was time to resume the interview.

I was still in shock and remained speechless as we both followed him to an outdoor patio overlooking the grounds. In those few minutes alone with Trump, my self-esteem crashed to zero. How could the actions of one man make me feel so utterly violated? I’d been interviewing A-list celebrities for over 20 years, but what he’d done was a first. Did he think I’d be flattered?



Ugh...We've all been there. It makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. I'm sure Hilary hasn't done this, and don't even bother with that made up BS about her threatening people.

There is a difference between feminism, and 2nd-wave radical feminism.

That is HILARIOUS.
Men can tell the difference between types of Feminism,

Except I think we're on 4th wave feminism now. He's a bit behind.

What is your experience? Why don't we make a discussion about an entitled male assaulting women all about YOUR experience as a male. Obviously your perspective will throw real light on the situation.

You are the one having problems go for it then. Your forum.

I got over my experiences and have not let them poison my view of the world and people.

I suspect that is because you are blissfully unaware of what women go through.

Trump is an admitted sexual predator. It's not a matter of interpretation.

...

What I am hearing 'on the ground' from women is this: That Trump's remarks as most men and women (yes the women do admit to Disgusting Sexual Remarks). Are disgusting. Now move on.

...

That's weird, because what I am hearing 'on the ground' from both men and women is that Trump's remarks describe illegal behaviour and are disgusting.

Es99...

What behavior? AKA: Victims in the released tape.

Popular Obama (see below) and Hillary's husband, who will (hopefully) live in The White House. Are more than verbally disgusting.

Repeat of a previous Post -

President Obama showing off his erection to giggling female reporters. 2008 video by CNN

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGJIB5cO0cQ

Legal behavior?

Please don't ever tell me that I don't know what sexual assault is. From you flippant comments I can only assume it has never happened to you.

There is a chasm of difference between what Obama is shown doing and what Trump claimed he has done.

I am telling you what it is. I am telling you as a woman that you do not get to tell women whether their reality is valid or not.

Es99...

Then... As a Man, you also do not get to tell men whether their reality is valid or not.

But... I did miss your posts. If just to confirm what I have been saying.

Again, what has your reality got to do with being sexually assaulted? What is it about having to sit back and listen to woman and accept that she knows more about this reality than you do that you find so difficult?

Until men start to listen to women, things are not going to get better. How about we start trying it here?

What Trump has claimed he has done is not 'locker room talk'. It's assault.

I am telling you this as a fact that should not in any way be debated. By insisting that it is not assault, you are doing what has been done to women far too many times. You are perpetuating rape culture. You are so used to your opinion having more weight than mine because of your gender that you simply cannot bring yourself to stand down.

That this is even up for debate says it all.

Women tell you that we do not want to be grabbed and groped without permission and you have the nerve to disagree. You don't get to tell us what we want or don't want. Do you understand?
