Insult 50% of the voting population and still have delusions of winning? I don't think so.

 

 

What Donald Trump Really Meant When He Said ‘Nasty Woman’

Decoding The Donald’s most obvious insult.

Bitch. He meant bitch. Possibly cunt. Perhaps witch.

Toward the end of Wednesday’s third ― and blessedly final ― presidential debate,Donald Trump interrupted Hillary Clinton’s comments about social security to call her a “nasty woman.”

It was a tacky, hostile and personal insult, but for Trump, it was actually a euphemism of sorts. Women around the world instantly knew what he was really saying

The real reason Donald called Hillary a #NastyWoman was that he couldn't call her a nasty bitch on national TV.#NastyWomenVote https://twitter.com/feministabulous/status/789102285326577665

After all, “Trump that Bitch” is one of his supporters’ most popular slogans. Calling Clinton a bitch has been a standard practice for Hillary haters for months.

Of course, Clinton’s been a “bitch” for years ― as writer Andi Zeisler pointed out inThe New York Times last month ― for changing her last name, for saying she’d rather work than bake cookies, for daring to reform the health care system, for existing.

Let’s be clear why the word is so despicable: Bitch is a gendered slur, meant to shame and silence women who dare speak up for themselves. Trump knows all about it, having publicly called former national security adviser Condoleezza Rice a bitch in a speech in 2006.

 

I really think Trump deserves some credit for saying "nasty woman" when he clearly wanted to say "c*nt." That took real courage.

 

@ChloeAngyal she is a nasty witch

Every woman who was still sitting through that painful exchange Wednesday night knew what Trump meant. Every woman who’s yelled back at a catcaller or turned down a man’s sexual advances ― only to be called a bitch ― knew what Trump meant. So did every woman who’s ever dared to be or do something.

Women understand that we when we speak up, question, interrupt or outsmart a guy, we run the risk of being called a bitch or witch or that other word.

“‘Bitch’ has long been an effective way to silence women because so many of us have been brought up to believe that remaining likable to others — even those we ourselves don’t like — is paramount,” writes Zeisler, arguing that we need to take back the word.

“All that’s required to reframe the word is to point out that the things bitches are often guilty of can be both unexceptional and necessary: flexing influence, standing up for their beliefs, not acting according to feminine norms and expectations.”

Women know this ― Twitter on Wednesday night and Thursday was filled with bitches being bitches and “nasty women,” vowing their revenge at the ballot box.

How do you think Trump is gonna feel when all the "nasty women" get out and vote on November 8th?
