Go Home To Mommy: Right On, Donald!
“Go home to Mommy!” Trump shouted at a protester during a rally on March 7, 2016 in Concord, North Carolina. (shown on NBC News)
Well, I know you won’t believe this, but I love what you said, Donald.
Though of course you wouldn’t expect someone like me, the touchy-feely-all-you-need-is-love type–to love anything you say. And of course what I like about what you said is not exactly what you meant by those words, “Go home to Mommy.”
You seem to think they are the perfect putdown.
But I’ll tell you why I love that phrase anyway. Because Going Home to Mommy, to Mother, to the Feminine, is exactly what we need to do more than anything! Yes, let’s all get as far away as we can from these lethal extremes of disconnection and aggression and Go Home to the Feminine, to the nurturance that holds and sustains life for every one of us—every woman and every man on the planet, including you, Donald.
Thank you Donald for giving me the perfect opportunity to say something I have wanted to say for a long time. I never cease to be amazed at how many verbal attacks use the feminine as an insult.
Honestly, Donald, do you not remember that you were born of a mother, that you have sisters and daughters? Do you never wonder why women, who carry us all from our very inception, women, who give us our only source of food and protection for the first nine months of life, are so thoughtlessly and thoroughly vilified, debased, and assaulted in our society?
