Trump's Words Are Not 'Explicit Sex Talk'


Trump ne ha fatta una talmente grossa (dieci e più anni fa, in realtà) che un sacco di notabili del Partito Repubblicano stanno finalmente prendendo seriamente le distanze da lui, come John McCain. L'Atlantic ha un pezzo molto interessante, che dice tra le altre cose:

The thing about the Republican’s words isn't that they’re explicit or graphic. It's that they're misogynistic, coercive, abusive, and dehumanizing. And as my colleague David Graham notes, illegal: The candidate is describing forcing himself on women, bragging that they’re disinclined to object because of a power structure on which he knowingly capitalizes.

Framing this as lewd, even extremely so, is a reminder of the frequent reluctance to name sexual assault. Explicit conversations are a different thing, a part of life central to mature sexuality.
