Ever since Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and rape issues were made public, Americans have been discussing the problems of harassment at work, and rape culture in America.
The lineage of rape culture is strong between Donald Trump and Donald Jr. They both have a long history of exploiting and objectifying women. And while it’s hard to beat President Trump’s level of misogyny, Trump Jr. is trying. What does he think women in the workforce should do about sexual harassment? Teach kindergarten:
“I’m of that mindset — and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days. If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position.”
“There’s sort of the reality of the situation and then there’s how the media portrays it again. So I mean, listen I know plenty of people. I’ve had conversations like that with plenty of people where people use language off color. They’re talking, two guys, amongst themselves. I’ve seen it time and time again. I think it makes him a human. I think it makes him a normal person not a political robot. He hasn’t spent his whole life waiting for this moment to run for the presidency.”
