Haunting Photos Feature Trumps Sexist Comments Drawn On Womens Bodies *NSFW*

[URL=.html][IMG][/IMG][/URL]

When Donald Trump won the presidential election in November, 18-year-old Aria Watson knew she needed to do something. So, she turned to art.

Watson, a first-year student at Clatsop Community College in Oregon, created a powerful photo series titled “#SignedByTrump” for a final project in a photography class. The images feature some of the sexist comments President-elect Donald Trump has made about women painted on naked women’s bodies.

Trump’s misogynistic comments paired with these women’s naked bodies serves as a powerful commentary on the damaging effect his words have had ― and will continue to have ― on so many women.

Watson told The Huffington Post she decided to mix her political opinions with her photography because she felt so strongly about Trump and Hillary Clinton. “I never really cared for or understood politics, but this year was different,” she said. “As a feminist, when I saw that Donald Trump actually won, my heart shattered.”

...

Watson explained why it’s important we continue to call out Trump’s sexism. “Kids are going to grow up and look up to this man for the next four years,” Watson said. “We can’t have a leader who says such horrible things about women. I’m scared that the way he speaks about women ― this sexism and misogyny ― will end up becoming a social norm.”

6. It

breaks my heart that an 18 year old girl would have to produce a photo essay like this.

This from the prez-elect.

recurring nightmare.

That child-woman is only 18 years old. This should NOT be happening.

How are young women going to make it?

Talk about un-presidential. These statements are deplorable.

17. Written on a young girls body shows us...

how he has stigmatized young women.

They are fighting back, yet it is painful to behold. What he has done is wrong on so many levels.

18. I prefer to look at it like this

We have come far enough that an 18 year old woman can do this and get attention for doing so. Not that long ago women weren't in a position to have such a powerful statement.

Yes it sucks that women still have to, but progress isn't linear. We don't move directly forward on any issue without setbacks. Trump is a setback, but he won't permanently end the progress we as a society have made in terms of the radical notion that women are people too.

21. No, sorry can't agree.

Trump is not a set back. He is an abomination to every woman. He has now, to this entire nation and this world normalized sexual assault on women. He just gave everyman the right to sexually assault women. Just grab them by the P**sy because our new Prez elect said, hell yes do it! It is great! We will make America Great Again!

12. I think the most depressing thing about this election

is that a man who has such a low opinion of women and is proud of that, got 62 million American citizens to vote for him.

19. This really is excellent and powerful. Problem is, those folks who voted Trump really don't care.

 

It will be interesting to see what if anything affects their opinion.

20. Hey Steve, thank you. Sigh.

It brought me to tears that an 18 year old women had the need to post this. It is 2016 and rump sent us back hundreds. It hurts.

They do not now or will ever care. The majority is angry white male. It is all about them.
