There’s one thing conservatives should never talk about: rape. They’ve repeatedly blamed everyone but the offender. The newest idiot to add to the list is Donald Trump’s newest campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.
Conservative women are the worst.
Conway said on PBS that “rape would not exist” if women and men had equal physical capabilities. That interview has resurfaced by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, according to CNN.
Conway made the remarks during a panel discussion on PBS’ “To the Contrary” in January 2013.
“If we were physiologically — not mentally, emotionally, professionally — equal to men, if we were physiologically as strong as men, rape would not exist,” Conway said. “You would be able to defend yourself and fight him off.”

Panel members were discussing women in the military and gender equality in combat and without being prompted, Conway brought up the analogy.
“We cannot have a reality show in the White House; the stakes are just too high, especially for women,” said National Finance Director Francesca Lucia.
“Most people who think like Donald Trump would only express their views in private, because they’re shameful. But not Kellyanne Conway. Not Eric Trump, when he said that Ivanka wouldn’t allow herself to be subject to sexual harassment. And certainly not Donald Trump himself,” said The Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead.
“They seem to think it’s acceptable to blame rape victims for their assaults, deny women the right to control their own health care, and downplay sexual harassment in the workplace. It’s not,” she added.
How about we stop blaming women for the actions of predatory men. How about we quit victimizing rape victims further. Has she ever heard of date-rape pills? Obviously not. A victim is rendered incapable of fighting back. We hope Kellyanne works out a lot since she seems to think of women as the weaker sex, therefore, it’s their fault if they are sexually assaulted.
Donald has demeaned women and they’ve noticed. Support from female voters just isn’t happening for the acidic billionaire.
