It does make someone a sexist if they talk about grabbing body parts without consent in jest, even in private. And while that's not illegal, it does spur people to think that since it's a joke, it's not a big deal and therefor, they can get away with it. Also, while it is next to impossible to find people that don't say nasty sexist, racist things in private, that's exactly what we should be striving for. I can't say I don't dislike some people, nor that I've never made nasty comments about them in private. But what I CAN say is that I have never, ever made a nasty comment about them because of what they were born as. Because I don't care whether someone is black, white, Asian, or Hispanic, queer or straight, Christian or atheist or muslim, male, female or anything in between. I care about their actions and words and no matter what you were born as, everyone has the capability of being a good human being or a complete ass.
I am not as worried about Trump as a president as most are. I'm really not. There is a lot he can say but there are limits and despite having republican majorities in both houses, he wont get everything he wants. Even with a judge as antiquated as Judge Scalia was, marriage equality will probably stay put and this country wont fall. He probably will take Obama's route with executive orders, not that I had much of a problem with them when many were necessary in my opinion and I hope if Trump passes any, it will be to help people, or at least intend to. My worry with Trump lies in his tact with other world leaders, especially in countries that are not so brazen as the US and tact is essential. And my worry is mostly with his supporters, because while every politician, Mr. Trump included, says what they think their voters want to hear, it's their supporters that will be in our everyday lives. And with his campaign, the hatred and bigotry he spewed has given a voice and validation to those that had been holding back due to societal pressures to treat people equally.
I don't care what people call me as long as it's true. I'm from Jersey, we are not a PC people. We say what we mean and don't hide behind the passive-aggressiveness that I've encountered in the south . If we're fat, call us fat. If you think our opinions are stupid, feel free say so and express your own opinions, but you better back them up with facts or we will call you out. But don't come to us with intolerant crap based on what we cannot control. Don't call me a probable criminal or unpatriotic because I'm Hispanic. Don't call me a bitch, dismiss my intelligence, or feel entitled to my body because I'm a woman. Don't call me immoral or sinful because I love differently from you or because I value science over a holy book. And don't you dare call me entitled because I've worked hard to get where I am, without a cent of government assistance, without a million dollar loan from my parents, without taking anything from anyone.
As for college students, it doesn't really matter what you study unless you are a doctor or lawyer, in which case, you can still apply to law or medical school as an art major, economics student, or 18th century literature student. The barista I mentioned in my last post, she double majored in economics and international relations. My brother and his classmates were engineering students at one of the best schools in the country. He now works in IT in a lucrative job with other people who majored in everything from dance to gender studies to math, while his classmates are toiling around in engineering making less than half of what he makes. Most jobs nowadays don't care what you major in, as long as you have a degree and are willing to learn. I don't have a degree yet but I'm in a much better place than most because I am naturally good with a computer and have had years of experience in office jobs.
I guess we live in different worlds.
If a private conversation about grabbing body parts makes you sexiest the I assume 95% of the population is, I don't know many people that can say they have never uttered a sexist, raciest , mean spirited, rude ect ect comment when you are having what you think is a private conversation.
Do you really think that even if Trump was a real raciest, sexist, blah blah blah that it will make a difference. Do you understand that the President does not make or introduce laws he is just there as a safeguard to veto or agree with legislation that gets passed on to his desk. Well I guess unless he takes a Que from Obama and bypasses them with executive orders.
Get over it fat people are fat like me. You can call me fat all you like as long as I don't care what you think what difference does it make.
As far as current students I am sure if they take real classes and not the 90% BS stuff that is offered jobs will be offered if they are worth a damn as an employee and not one of the entitled I have a basket weaving masters so I should be the President of Ford.
