Donald Trump – someone should tell him that rape isn’t about sexual attraction

Donald Trump Tweeted this in response to a report by the Pentagon that details the rampant sexual abuse that goes on in the military:

“26,000 unreported sexual assults [sic] in the military – only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?”

“The Generals and top military brass never wanted a mixer but were forced to do it by very dumb politicians who wanted to be politically C!”

So I don’t know where to begin with Trump’s logic – does “when they put men & women together” mean that he’s against any kind of co-ed situation? Should hospitals be segregated – one for men and one for women, just in case something may happen? Should we segregate schools? The space program? Congress? Doctors without Borders?

Or is he arguing that men are somehow wired to rape, and we cannot control ourselves, and the only thing that can stop men from raping is not having easy access to women?

Or is he saying it’s women’s fault – if they hadn’t joined the army, then maybe they wouldn’t be raped; because, after all, who do these ladies think they are, expecting to be treated with respect just because they’re risking their lives for their country? I mean, really – the gall.

Or is he saying that men shouldn’t be in the army because then they’ll just become rapists?

None of Trump’s Tweets make any sense.

And I’d also like to point – and I hate having to say this again – but rape is not about sexual attraction – it’s a crime of violence and misogyny.
