mi•sog•y•nist (məˈsäjənəst)


1. a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.

 

Several years ago, to supplement my income for college, I worked at a bar that had tables for card games.

Among one of the regulars was an elderly man called Doc Taylor.

Doc Taylor was a man of questionable integrity when it came to women. He liked to cheat. As a doctor he bragged regularly at this club how he had seen half the women in that small town naked.

He liked to keep a journal of all the women that he had scored.

Doc Taylor was married.

He often made suggestive maneuvers to all the barmaids and waitresses, and we all wondered how any woman could ever demean themselves and lower their standards to even go to him as a doctor.

Whenever he "scored", he would come in and brag to all the men about how he had "banged" this woman, and gave her name.

One day, he was standing near me and was griping to the manager about how the men were cheating at gin rummy one day and calling them disgusting individuals.

Being young and tactless, I piped up: "So you don't believe in cheating?"

"I do not!" He proclaimed.

"Not even on your wife?" I asked calmly.

The manager coughed up whatever he was drinking.

Doc Taylor sputtered, "That is a completely different thing!"

"Of course it is," I agreed. "You have sworn an oath of loyalty to your wife. The men who were cheating at cards didn't ever promise you anything in front of God and the Justice of the peace. If you will cheat on the person you love, you will cheat anyone."

He didn't come in a lot after that... Especially when I was working.

How men talk about women (or vise versa) can directly tell you what kind of a person they really are.

At the beginning of the GOP debate, Bret Baier asked a question that got Donald Trump booed by the audience: “Is there anyone onstage — and can I see hands — who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican Party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person?”

Trump raised his hand.

Baier then reminded him that he was standing on the stage of a Republican debate.

Chris Wallace asked him about his four bankruptcies. Trump dodged the question.

But Megyn Kelly asked: “You’ve called women you don’t like fat, pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. You once told a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees,” she said. “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”

All of a sudden, Trump vowed not to be nice to Megyn Kelly anymore. According to his Twitter feed, she had blood running our of every orifice.

Why didn't he go after Wallace and Baier? To me, the questions were much more damaging to his character as a presidential candidate. He had no loyalty to the Republican party, and he was bad with money.

Trump is in his third marriage. He has cheated on all three wives.

Women that he has sworn oaths to under the law, and under God (since he claims to be a Christian) he has cheated.

And now he wants to be elected as president and swear an oath on a Bible between God and Country, that he will uphold the laws and the Constitution of the United States.

But how can he uphold those laws when he hates half the population of the United States?

How can he be trusted to be good to those people of the United States when he can't be trusted to be good to the women in his life?

How can anyone actually trust a man who hates so much that half of the USA is disgusting?

If you want a picture of "disgusting", look at a man who hates, cheats, lies, and denigrates other people for the purpose of making himself look better.

If you want a picture of a misogynist, just Google Donald Trump images.
