Women are fighting back against Donald Trump after a clip from a 2005 “Access Hollywood” episode went viral which features Trump admitting and approving of sexual assault. The politician claims that his words were taken out of context and that it was regular “locker talk.” Women across the country do not believe that approving of assault is anything but illegal and wrong.
The “Orange Is The New Black” cast and crew made a huge political statement by posting a photo on Instagram wearing t-shirts, that say, “Vaginas Against Trump.” The picture was originally posted on the social media app by Lea DeLaria, who plays the prominent character of Boo. The picture also features Taryn Manning, Emma Myles, Beth Dover, Francesca Curran, and Julie Lake.
The photo is a clear fight against the horrific things that Donald Trump has been reported to have said about women. The photograph was also shared by Emma Myles with the caption, “get your shirt.” The photo is a call to all women who feel that Trump’s words are not just “locker talk,” but are a clear representation of America’s current rape culture.
Women can buy their own shirt from the Instagram handle @vaginasagainsttrump, and all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood to help fund reproductive and feminine care. The hashtag #imwithher was also featured on the OITNB cast photo, which is the hashtag devoted to the Hilary Clinton campaign.
Hilary also has some choice words about Donald Trump and his recent viral video detailing his admiration towards sexual assault.
Clinton stated on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that Donald Trump doesn’t just disrespect women; he disrespects all people.
She stated, “It’s not just what Trump has said about women – as terrible as that has been – what he has said about immigrants and African Americans and Latinos and people with disabilities and POWs and our military and Muslims, everybody. He has been so insulting and derogatory. And I celebrate our diversity. I’m proud of so many things about our country, but one is clearly that we lift each other up. We don’t put each other down. We show respect for each other.”
More and more women have been coming forward to state that Donald Trump has either sexually harassed them or assaulted them. The most recent allegation comes from an editor of “The Apprentice” who states that Trump harassed contestant Khloe Kardashian.
Allegedly, Donald Trump called Khloe Kardashian a “piglet” while she was a contestant on “The Apprentice” in 2009. Trump stated, “Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”
Donald Trump’s comments are not just rude, but they contribute to the rape culture that exists in America today. His words represent the idea that rape in the United States is “okay,” and that the sexualization of women is fine. The “Orange Is The New Black” cast reminds the American population that a woman is in charge of her own body and that “locker room” talk is not okay.
