I am really curious as to why as soon as men are in the spotlight, women start making sexual assault accusations. We saw this with Bill Cosby as well and Mr. Trump. While apparently Bill Cosby was guilty for sexual assault, it is really interesting to see how women continuously made claims against Cosby all at the same time. Is this because they all felt able to come out about their assault issues because of the other women, or because they wanted to jump on the bandwagon? I do not condone sexual assault whatsoever, of course, but it saddens me that women (or men) have the capability of tainting someone's name so much by accusing them of false acts. Regarding Donald Trump, I wonder why Gloria Allred has waiting to come up with her claims until now. Donald Trump has been a millionaire for years, why has she decided now, almost ten years later. Allred, a well-off lawyer who took part in Trump's show The Apprentice, said that after being dropped from the competition, Trump invited her to his hotel room, kissed, her and tried to touch her breasts. This does not surprise me at all because Trump seems like a very capable man of doing something like this. However, it perturbs me that this woman has waited until now to come out with these accusations. Along with the terrible tapes that came out with Donald Trump's sexual assault words, these claims will continue to hurt his name, especially in this race.

i think you are right. some people just try to make some topics into sexual arguments even if the problem or issue is not really about it. when men are shown up on the screen, they start to think about the reason why there is no woman. however, it does not matter if this job is done by any sexuality. in another word, they overthink the meaning of certain situation they have met.
