You can only hope. A degree if desperation would have to accompany any man seeking your company.
Donald Trump has argued that he cannot have sexually harassed or assaulted the (diverse)
women who have accused him because they are too unattractive to have interested him at all.
He implies that these women must be lying because they are desperate for attention from men.
Regarding Jessica Leeds (who then was a 38 year old businesswoman), Donald Trump
said (mocking her as particularly unattractive):
"Believe me, she would not be my first choice [for a sexual encounter], I can tell you."
Apart from his sexism, Donald Trump's 'defense' is ludicrous because there was no 'choice'
involved in assigning a woman to sit next to him on an airliner. It presumably was done by a computer.
Donald Trump did not have the choice of being in a position to grope Jessica Leeds or a young supermodel.
Most victims of sexual assault become targets because they seem *available*, not because they are beauty queens.
