New York Times: Trump triggering mass hysteria among rape victims

The New York Times is reporting that many victims of rape are running to therapists because of the mere possibility that Donald Trump could get elected president.

For women, particularly those who have been victims of sexual assault, the election has triggered painful memories. Ms. Elias [a therapist] said that after the second debate, "many of my female patients came in and wanted to talk about Trump." She said patients felt that Mr. Trump seemed to stalk Mrs. Clinton and invade her space. Some patients needed to process incidents in which they had felt belittled or harassed by men in their lives.

"Women said their hearts were racing during the debate, they were that triggered," Ms. Elias said. "Some came in complaining of having had nightmares."

First there were trigger words, words that liberals simply could not endure. Now we have trigger people, people whose mere existence causes panic!  And Donald Trump is one of them.

Thankfully, this triggering experience is limited to the thought of Donald Trump and no one else.

Women do not report being triggered by the thought of accused rapist Bill Clinton returning to the White House.  Nor are they triggered by Mrs. Clinton's legal representation of a child rapist, or her seeming indifference to the Disney ride length line of women whom Mr. Clinton allegedly abused or raped during his long politica and sexual career.  Nor are they apparently triggered by Mrs. Clinton's receipt of large sums of money from Muslim countries who literally, and I do mean literally, enslave their women.

Women seemed more concerned that Mr. Trump "invaded" Mrs. Clinton's space during the debate, but Mr. Clinton invaded a lot more intimate spaces of women than Mr. Trump did that night.

There's plenty to criticize about what Donald Trump has said about women (and perhaps done), but this asymmetical hysteria shows how liberal women conveniently ignore the excesses of their own candidate and focus, to the extreme, on the other.  If only there were a treatment for politica brainwashing, perhaps some of these women could be cured.
