Trump Is the Worst

[Content Note: Misogyny; objectification.]

I've got a new piece up at Blue Nation Review about Donald Trump's gross history of commenting on the quality of women's skin:
Trump objectifies women. He's running to be the standard-bearer for a party that increasingly treats women as property of the state. Every time he speaks about women as though we are things, rather than people deserving of respect, he upholds sexist narratives in which sexist policy, from abortion access to equal pay, flourishes.

And here, he is not just objectifying women generally. Each of the women whose appearance he's critiquing—as though their looks are the only thing they have of value to offer the world—have engaged in meaningful activism.

...These are women who have done more for the country—and the world—than Donald Trump has ever done.
