Trump has lived his entire life in a world where multiple women can accuse him of sexual misconduct, and he can expect that his word will be accepted over theirs. This is rape culture, and this is Trump’s “normal.” He wants it to be everyone else’s “normal” too. Trump’s presidential run has inflicted his perverse idea of manhood upon America. Thanks to the 2016 race, he’s atop his highest soapbox ever, preaching the gospel of toxic masculinity — a lot of which is about men feeling entitled to women and their bodies. And his unapologetic demonization of women through both rhetoric and policy will resonate with his flock long after Election Day, triggering survivors of abuse and assault — and endangering women — as it spreads.
