Stop Slut Shaming Melania Trump Just Because You Don’t Agree With Her Husband

So a few weeks ago we all had a good laugh at ‘that’ speech Melania Trump did at the Republican National Convention , and while we enjoyed the resulting memes and jokes online, it was all harmless and nothing personal.

But now, after seeing the recent sexist abuse Melania is receiving from online trolls , celebs and even politicians, it’s got us pretty fired up.

Melania is the wife of Presidential candidate Donald Trump, mother to their son Barron Trump and the potential next first lady. Before meeting Donald, Melania had a successful career in modelling.  Like most models, she posed for a bunch of nude photoshoots.

These very images have now re-surfaced (even though they were never a secret anyway) and one taken from when Mrs.Trump was just 25 years old has been blasted across the cover of the New York Post in an attempt to shame the Trump camp and prevent people from voting for Donald. The image, which features Melanias’ bare breasts censored with stars, is positioned along side the title: THE OGLE OFFICE.

 

This isn’t the first time the Trump family have had their past used as ammunition to encourage the public to vote against Donald and it’s not the first time that Mrs. Trump has had her naked body at the centre of the drama.

1020In March, a conservative anti-trump campaigner tried to convince people not to vote for him by dishing out nude images of Melania from a British GQ shoot she did in 2000 (above).

The ad included an image of Melania taken from the GQ shoot, laying on a bed with the caption:

“Meet Melania Trump, your next first lady. Or, you could support Ted Cruz…”

This naturally sparked outrage in the Trump camp leading to Donald tweeting Ted Cruz threatening to get his wife involved in the drama (really?!)…

But the damage was done and as a result, Melania has been getting a grilling off republicans, conservatives and even those that consider themselves as liberal ever since. Not to forget the amount of Women who’ve taken shots at Melania. WOMEN! Seriously?!

The nude photos have been used to create an image of melania as a dumb, good for nothing trophy wife with constant comparisons to the much loved Michelle Obama.

Considering Trump has been blatantly racist and discriminative about so much of society, as well as fear mongering regarding his plans to ‘control ISIS’ and keep all muslims out of the country, why are people choosing to attack him for his wife’s past, and not the real issues here?

Sexism is nothing new and it’s something that most females in the public eye and previous First Ladies have had to experience at some point. Michele Obama has had her fair share over the last 8 years during her husbands presidency with trolls referring to her to an ape and a monkey and giving her a hard time for exposing her bare arms in official white house photos. She’s even had her looks compared to Melania’s in a racist cartoon.

What people need to remember when sharing their critical views on twitter and the likes of, is that this is an actual person with real feelings. Someones mother and someones wife. Regardless of peoples views on politics (or lack of)  and regardless of what you think of Trump, Melania shouldn’t be branded around like a piece of meat and made a spectacle of. Melania is constantly being viewed as a reflection of what people think of trump rather than for her own character.

Why is her modelling career such a big deal anyway? She has a past just like everyone else and if you ask me, the photos were done tastefully. She’s not exactly bent over a desk in playboy! But even if she was, who cares!!!!

Everyone has a past and there’s way more corrupt things going on right now rather than a few harmless nudes. I guess material like this serves a purpose in distracting people from the truth and the real issues.

Refusing to contribute in slut-shaming Melania does not mean you support her husbands messed up views and tactics. It means you’re simply letting the Woman live her life, regardless of her past. Melanias nude pics have nothing to do with Trump as president.

Give the girl a break.
