Author uses a brutally honest analogy to help other men understand how our culture enables sexual assault.

Many men don't understand the constant anxiety countless women experience every day surrounding the fear of being sexually assaulted.

This lack of empathy has been in the forefront of the American consciousness over the last few years, especially since Donald Trump entered the center of the political arena. He's been accused by multiple women of sexual assault and rape, was friends with a man accused of sex trafficking minors, caught on tape bragging about sexually abusive behavior, and has supported men for Senate and the Supreme Court who've been credibly accused of assault as well.

The shocking thing about Trump is not that a man in power has attempted to wield it over women — it's that his actions haven't deterred his supporters.

A.R. Moxon, author of the upcoming book, "The Revisionaries," came up with a brilliant, yet brutal metaphor to help men understand the constant fear and anxiety that potential sexual abuse causes women. It also helps them understand how women feel when powerful men such as Trump are able to get away with the abuse because the system supports them.

Men, imagine if you got kicked in the nuts and it made you pregnant and then the government forced you to carry the baby to full-term.

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?
