There have been several accusations that Donald Trump; presidential candidate. But regard of all of the accusations he has had, he always defends his own name and has his wife agree with him that he is a "gentleman". Including the his "locker room" talk disapproving on the fact that he is a gentleman, plus calling a Miss Universal candidate, Misses Piggy. But, still with saying all that in the second presidential debate he called him self a gentle man. With that said, on the last debate he had with Hillary Clinton, while she was discussing her plan of raising taxes, he blurted out, " nasty women". Now, does calling a women nasty on national television very respectful, not in my opinion. Clearly trump needs to watch what he says if want to prove he is a true gentleman. But, recently there have been other women and his wife stating that despite what Trump says he is a true gentleman with them. My thoughts are if the say he is a gentleman because he buys them out with luxury or is he really a courteous man with manners.

Hi Madelyn! I agree that Donald Trump definitely contradicted himself by calling himself a gentleman after all the horrible things he has said about women. I don't understand how he is taken serious at all. I also noticed that more women spoke out about Trump and how they were treated by him. I don't think it's about the luxuries, but the fact that these women now feel comfortable opening up after it has been exposed that Trump is offensive toward women. But I also think there have been plenty of other situations that have revealed Trump is a questionable candidate. I also think he needs to watch what he says, especially when discussing issues for a presidential candidacy.

Whether or not it was "locker room" talk, especially someone running for president, one shouldn't treat women as stock or as resource for men's desires. Furthermore, it is clearly evident that Trump has neglected the fact that women are individuals and the fact that gender is socially constructed. In other words, I don't think it matters if men acted "gentelment-like" or not, and if women acted "ladly-like" or not, I think what matters if people are able to look beyond gender and treat each other as individuals.
