Shocker: Donald Trump Says He’s Not a Feminist

You don’t say. 

Just in case his archaic views on reproductive health, transgender women, or his repulsive comments about his own daughter weren't some kind of signifier, Donald Trump plainly stated that he isn't a feminist.

"No, I wouldn't say I'm a feminist," Trump told Piers Morgan when asked over the weekend, "that would be, maybe, going too far."

Attempting to clarify, Trump added: "I'm for women. I'm for men. I'm for everyone. I think people have to go out... and they have to win." While that's all well and good, it seems Trump is missing the point of feminism, which is to put women on a level playing field with men and actually enable them to win without surmounting unfavorable odds.

When Morgan touched on the feminist marches that took place on the one-year anniversary of last year's Women's March on Washington, Trump was dismissive. "You're always going to have marches," he said. "The march, I guess, was a lot smaller than last year." He's right about one thing - as long as inequality persists, there will always be marches.
