It鈥檚 been one week since America lost its collective mind and it was announced that Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the US. While many of us are definitely feeling post-election blues, there have been many great actions on how to help fight against some of Trump鈥檚 scarier campaign promises, like ways you can get involved in activism, and how to donate to Planned Parenthood in VP-Elect Mike Pence鈥檚 name. But some of us, unfortunately, are taking our anger and channeling it toward someone who doesn鈥檛 quite deserve it, and for reasons that aren鈥檛 the best. We鈥檙e talking, of course, of soon-to-be First Lady Melania Trump.

Donald Trump Campaigns In Key States During Weekend Ahead Of General Presidential Election

Since election day, the attacks on Melania Trump have escalated, and they鈥檝e focused entirely on her past career as a model. Some are channeling their rage by calling her 鈥渟tupid鈥 or 鈥渟lutty,鈥 and this isn鈥檛 quite the point. The woman hasn鈥檛 done other women any favors by completely allowing (and maybe even agreeing with) her husband鈥檚 political stances, but that doesn鈥檛 mean she deserves slut-shaming, either. While she should take responsibility for her enabling of her husband鈥檚 terrible policies and sexism, that doesn鈥檛 mean that sexism should be served right back up at her. Twitter鈥檚 been a mess with call-outs to Melania鈥檚 character based solely on her looks and job.

There鈥檚 a popular joke about her being Trump鈥檚 third wife:

Many people make fun of how 鈥渟tupid鈥 she is:

And many are calling her out for her near-nude modeling days:

But, like us, many are noticing the awful double standard in mocking her physical appearance and not her terrible world views.

It鈥檚 definitely possible to question someone鈥檚 judgement when it comes to oppressive words and actions (or in Melania鈥檚 case, inaction), but it鈥檚 definitely not okay to publicly humiliate a woman just because she鈥檚 beautiful, sexy or might not be as intelligent as you *think* she should be.

We should probably take a few steps back and think about why we feel so comfortable attacking other women, and also why we choose to attack for appearance rather than more nuanced ideas.
