When women bully other women for not doing what they want

on

So it seems that women will support you only if you do what they want. Well at least, that’s the case with Miss Universe winner — and now business woman — Jennifer Hawkins, who has parlayed her genetically-blessed appearance into a solid career as a model, brand ambassador and TV presenter.

Hawkins is being blatantly bullied by influential blogs and social media brands — including MammaMia — for not withdrawing her support for Donald Trump. screen-shot-2016-10-13-at-12-50-27-pm

I’m sorry… what?

We’re not advocating for Trump here. But just because one woman — or a million of them — don’t support your view, that does not give you a mandate to deny a woman’s right to CHOOSE.

Jennifer Hawkins rose to fame after being crowned Miss Universe – in a pageant funded by US presidential candidate Donald Trump. Hawkins has previously been quoted as supporting him, most likely because she’s not stupid and respects and appreciates the business person who helped her become the woman she is today.

The leaked video of Trump was a good example of what men are doing all around the world every day. This kind of thing happens to me on a regular basis. And I’ll bet it happens to you as well. More men are like that then I care to admit. Does it make it right? Of course not. But does that also mean I need to vocally and publicly oppose that man or organisation every time it happens?

To demand Jennifer Hawkins publicly attack or oppose someone who has booster her career is like asking these blogs or media commentators to do the same to an advertiser of theirs who invested millions into their brand.

You have to wonder whether Hawkins supporting Trump will actually make a damn of difference for his campaign… in the bizarre universe that is currently American politics, even a Miss Universe is not likely to stand out very much.

 But that’s not the point. Leave the woman alone and respect her choice to support, stay silent or not support whomever she wishes.

That’s the point to women supporting women. Supporting their CHOICE.
