Donald Trump’s candidacy and now election to the most powerful position in the world, President of the United States, sends a very powerful message to women. Depraved comments and behavior toward women can be overlooked. No. We will not recede behind society’s conditioning to overlook, shut up and take it. No. We will be heard.

This Art As Social Inquiry series is my response to our new President-Elect Donald Trump — stories, action steps, and whatever else this series develops into during a Trump presidency.

Month after month we were continually assaulted by candidate Trump’s vile words and deceits making him unfit to be President in my opinion. But here we are. He is President-Elect. Whatever this series becomes is this artist’s effort to hold Donald Trump accountable for his words and actions — President or not.

I’m kicking off this series with a piece I wrote for Huffington Post called Being #Pussy in Donald Trump’s World. I have decades worth of #pussy-grabbing stories like most women living in the locker room rape culture Trump embodies. It’s not fun.  “I did try and fuck her. She was married…And I moved on her very heavily…I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything…You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything…Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”  From President-Elect Donald Trump
