21st Century Misogyny

My day started as usual. I caught up with the news. One AP article that caught my attention was about the arrest of Stormy Daniels last night in Ohio. She was arrested because she allegedly allowed patrons to “touch” her breasts. The charges were later dropped.

As I read about the event, I couldn’t help but think of another <strike>porn star</strike> model, First Lady Melania.

Society slut shames the whore and honors the wife. Why?

One gets arrested and the other gets applause. Why?

This juxtaposition provides a textbook example of the definition of misogyny.

The women in Trump’s circle? … They are offered as sad caricatures of an entire gender as sought out and defined by one man.
