Love Letters to Trump - An Effort to Find Compassion, Kindness, and Acceptance in the Trump Presidency
Letter #2 - October 3, 2018
Dear President Trump,
Thank you for mocking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford! You did a wonderful job reminding how terrifying it is to be a victim of sexual assault. You did a wonderful job of reminding me that people do not name their abusers because they are afraid that they will be shamed and not believed just like you did! This also reminds me how quickly and often abuse against women gets minimized.
Because more people were not incited by your comments, it shows me that the culture in the US still treats women like second class citizens. When a victim of sexual violence can be mocked on international TV by the world’s most powerful man, you, it shows me just how consistent I have to be in learning how to support and advocate for women’s rights, sexual victim’s rights, and sexually victimized women’s rights. Thank you for inspiring me to be more aware of such important issues to my fellow humans!
You did a great job at mocking her. Thank you!
