Pubic hair donation to Trump campaign shows hypocrisy of feminists

A woman named Emily Robinson cut off some of her pubic hair and mailed it to Donald Trump's campaign as a "donation," writing:

Dear Mr Trump,

I'm not able to mail you my actual [p----]. So I've included the next best thing.

And here is her justification:

"Donald Trump is a disgusting pig of a person and represents everything that females hate about existing in life as a woman, she told Us Weekly. "I felt better after I mailed the letter. I felt relieved." 

It's possible some people might find Robinson's protest offensive. Robinson, however, asked critics to get their priorities straight. 

"If sexual assault doesn't offend them, but they think my pubes are disgusting, then they really need to rethink what is gross in this world," she said.

Therein lies the problem.  No one can defend Trump's comments about grabbing the genitals of married women.  But the hypocrisy of the selective outrage is glaring.  I don't remember any women mailing their pubic hair to Bill Clinton after he was accused of sexually groping Kathleen Willey, nor was there any mass FedExing of genital hair to the White House after the news broke that Clinton had been accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick.

In fact, I remember just the opposite.  I remember liberal women like Nina Burleigh reacting with statements like (citations omitted):

In a 1998 essay for Mirabella, Burleigh described an occasion aboard Air Force One when she noticed President Bill Clinton apparently looking at her legs, the piece led to her being described as "the Ally McBeal of former White House reporters" by columnist Ellen Goodman. Approached by a Washington Post media reporter to discuss the Mirabella article, Burleigh's on-the-record-remarks commending Clinton's policy on abortion rights were widely considered the most sexually explicit ever made by a premier journalist, writing that "I would be happy to give him a [b------] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.". Referring to the comment in a 2007 piece for The Huffington Post, Burleigh wrote, "I said it... because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment." 

Where was the outrage there?  It didn't exist, because Bill Clinton was a Democrat and  he had license to do whatever he wanted, as far as liberal women were concerned.

Furthermore, Ms. Robinson's sending of her pubic hair was disgusting in and of itself – a curious method of criticizing Donald Trump's behavior.

Let me ask you a question: if Donald Trump had snipped off some of his own pubic hair and mailed it to the Clinton campaign in protest over Bill Clinton's abuse of women, do you think the media would have been as kind as they have been to Ms. Robinson?

Probably not.

That's because when it comes to abuse of women, there are two standards – one for Democrats and one for everyone else, as far as liberals are concerned.
