Pictures of this woman…
Were used by an anti-Trump, pro-Cruz Super-PAC just before the voting happened in Utah, and it really makes me wonder… just what the fuck is so wrong with the 1st Lady having made a career of her beauty? If you come at me with the feminist argument that modeling of that kind is degrading to women, I’ll throw it back in your face. The amount of power, fame, and financial stability women (and men btw) have achieved through modeling careers (among other similar professions) can’t be overlooked, whether you like it or not, and a great many of the people who have succeeded in those careers are self-possessed, enjoy what they do, and are empowered.
They believe in themselves.
And some sleazy anti-Trump Super-PAC tried using that against Donald Trump? Attacking him through his wife’s completely justified and undeniably successful time as a super model?
That, to me, is far more degrading to women than Melania Trump’s modeling could ever be.
On another note, in case anyone wonders why I used her maiden name for the title of this post, it’s in part to illustrate my point. She attained a great measure of her success before she was every married to Donald Trump. She did that, and she’s done plenty since then too.
She has accomplished a lot, both before and after her last name became Trump.
