I have not commented on this before because I thought it was better to just let it pass.

It was not a very elegant email.
But it was not misogynistic.

I did not think it was offensive or dehumanizing.
Maybe Trumps words were, but that does not mean that Ramm's paraphrasing was.
Just as Céline Jacquin's email here is not offensive because she links to a webpage 
that contains the exact same words.

There is only one person that could be offended by Ramms's email and that is Michal 
Migurski. I note that he is endorsing your statement. I had hoped that he would argue 
that the comparison was wrong or unfair.
