Why I Am BEGGING You Not To Vote For Donald Trump
5 years ago · Stress, · Explicit
I am writing this post anonymously, as it touches on very personal matters that I have only been able to open up to about to two people in my entire life. It is no secret that Donald Trump is an enemy to Muslims, Mexicans, women, and many others. It is no secret that rape culture is heinous, and that society sexualizes both men and women, treating us as objects instead of human beings. But it is a very deep secret that I was sexually and verbally abused as a young girl. I was literally rendered speechless because of the trauma of it. I have been through years of intensive therapy and self-discovery to try and heal the indescribable wounds that I have received, and there is still not a day that goes by that I do not cry and anguish over the pain that I can’t seem to fully get over.
I consider myself completely nonpartisan. I have many issues and praises for every single political party I have looked into. This is only the second presidential election I’ve been able to vote in. In 2012, I voted for Mitt Romney, though I have immense respect for both Romney and Obama. I remember waking up that morning with so much pride and joy in the fact that our nation had the honor of voting between two good-hearted, family-loving citizens. Though I happened to vote Republican in that particular election, I had perfect respect for those who voted differently. This year, I consider it a personal insult when I hear friends and family tell me that they are voting for Donald Trump. It is disgusting.
This is not about politics, anymore. It’s about being a decent human being. He bragged about kissing and groping women against their will. That is sexual assault. He has verbally abused and sexualized women on numerous occasions. He has publicly rated women on a scale of 1-10. When I tell people that I will never vote for Donald Trump, it has nothing to do with politics. I COULD NOT CARE LESS what his stance is on immigration, on abortion, on health care, on taxes. When I think of Donald Trump, I do not think of an alternate candidate to Hillary Clinton and Gary Johnson. I think of the monster who had the nerve to rape me as a 10 year old girl. I think of the monster who had me stand naked with two other young girls and rate each of us on a scale of 1-10. I think of the women that Donald Trump has rated on a scale of 1-10 and wonder if they, too, cut themselves. I wonder if they can sleep at night. I think of the women that he has kissed and groped without their consent and wonder if they, too, hate themselves. I wonder if they feel shame when they kiss their loved ones at night.
To anyone who is reading this and still doesn’t care: Do you really believe that he cares about you? Do you really think that the wall will go up and that Mexico will pay for it? Do you really believe that he will put a stop to abortion? Do you really believe that has any idea how to “Make America Great Again”?
To anyone who is reading this and still doesn’t care: What about everyone else? What about the Muslim and Mexican immigrants who are good-hearted, amazing people who love their families and love our country and want to make a better life? WHY DON’T YOU CARE ABOUT THEM?
To anyone who is reading this and STILL DOES NOT CARE: I am writing this anonymously. What if it was you? What if it was your wife, your husband, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your son, your daughter, your brother, or your sister? Would you care? Because for all you know, it is.
