An Open Letter to Men Defending Trump Right Now

  1. IF AND BECAUSE:
  2. You have never been groped by a stranger without your consent
  3. You have never had strangers yell unwanted comments or vulgarities at you as you walk by
  4. You have never had a coworker or peer use vulgar terms to comment on your body
  5. You have never been afraid to walk alone at night
  6. You have never known what it is like to live in a world where others feel entitled to touch and comment on your body
  7. You have never been called names no one deserves to be called
  8. THEN:
  9. You can never understand what women feel right now
  10. You can never understand what it feels like to hear someone defend those actions
  11. You can never understand what it feels like to think that that man may be your president
  12. You can never understand what it feels like to know it will happen again
  13. SO:
  14. Stop talking. Right now.
  15. Start listening.
