Donald Trump

If the Republican debate last week could be defined as a circus act, than Donald Trump was the clown.

Moderated by Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly, she threw out tough questions as any moderator would at a Presidential hopeful debate.

While most of the candidates took her questions seriously, billionaire Donald Trump accused her of menstruating.

Historically speaking, menstruation has been used as an excuse by men to exclude women from many spheres within society.

His fellow candidates took Mr. Trump to task for his comments.

Unfortunately, their criticism of his comments are just for show.

The Republicans claim that they want to bring in more women voters into the fold.  Many women (myself included) have historically voted for the Democratic party.

If the Republican party truly wants to bring in more women to their side of the aisle, I have a recommendation for them: stop interfering in our business. Let us make our decisions regarding our bodies and our healthcare. Do not repeal Obamacare. Let Planned Parenthood be. Respect our decisions, especially when and if we choose to have abortions. If your son or your daughter reveals that he or she is gay, just love them because they are your child. And for G-d sakes, put into place gun laws that actually work.

Donald Trump’s remarks may have been crude and disrespectful.  But they are also representative of the belief of many Republicans, who still believe that we live in another decade.
