Stop it with Ivanka

Coming from a background of sexual abuse (rape and, no, not my father, but by another male relative - and at the age of 12), it is gross to me for anyone to drag Ivanka down with her dad. Judge her for many reasons, but please stop posting photos of her with her dad and suggesting lap dances, etc.

Ivanka may have suffered the unspeakable, which starts with an "I." Let's leave it at that and leave that out of discussions here.

Or ignore me if you want. But understand that it cheapens our narrative and discussion to rag on a woman who, as a child, was around a man who is on tape saying such remarks about a 10 year old as "I'm going to be dating her in ten years!"

Think.About.That.

Ivanka has her own issues, but if her dad abused her it is not a topic we need to discuss or make light of. And there is no evidence he did.

Is her willingness to lie about her father's respect for women. She HAS to know better.

Have that issue by all means. I'm talking about the thread stating that she is lap dancing on her father. It's just not appropriate and is, quite frankly, back-handedly sexist.

That said, I never participate in those threads and had no luck asking to leave Melania out of our discussions. My reasoning was that something we say might bring her harm. She is living with the beast. I pity her.

I think Ivanka could put distance between herself and her father if she wanted.

and telling their story.


She is only in the narrative because Trump is. Leave her alone.

In fact, Ivanka and Tiffany are the only Trumps I respect.

Can you imagine being the daughter of Donald Trump? Growing up with that clown being your dad? Ugh. I pity those two girls.
