Amber Tamblyn Explains Misogyny in Donald Trump’s Campaign

Amber Tamblyn penned an op-ed piece for Glamour Magazine in which she analyzes the deep-rooted misogyny in Donald Trump’s campaign and attempts to explain the difference between engaging in sexual assault and talking about engaging in sexual assault.

“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star dissected the Republican presidential candidate’s thinking that Bill Clinton being accused of sexual assault is worse than Trump bragging about committing those acts.

“Seems ironic that the connection I and many others have made between words and actions is the very same rebuttal they are now using as a defense,” said Tamblyn in Glamour. “The pot calls the kettle something it would like to move on like a b—-.”

Besides Trump’s logic being flawed, especially after multiple women have come forward accusing Trump of making non-consensual, aggressive sexual advances, Tamblyn says that it’s unfair to associate Clinton’s past indiscretions with Hillary Clinton.

“The man is not running for President. Hillary Clinton is,” said Tamblyn. “Distorting her fealty to marriage vows and her loyalty to her family — something surely the family values voters on the right can understand — and implying that she is somehow a greater danger to women than Trump is deeply and horrifically wrong.”

The “Two and a Half Men” star then went on to explain what misogyny is and how you can prove it exists.

“It’s a party nominee who, in one sentence, brings up the affairs of his opponent’s husband, and in the very next breath tells her she can speak first because he’s ‘a gentleman,'” Tamblyn wrote.

She added that if you’re a woman in America “there’s a 10 in 10 chance you’ve experienced it — whether you recognize it or not, whether you’re ready to admit it or not.”

Tamblyn had only recently opened up about her own personal experiences with sexual assault, which she detailed in an Instagram post on Oct. 19.

She posted a picture of Donald Trump kissing the Miss USA 2012 winner, Olivia Culpo, and told the story of her emotionally and physically abusive ex-boyfriend.

“That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week,” wrote Tamblyn.
