I have so much I want to say about Ford v Kavanaugh.
Mostly I want to offer my rear view mirror which is more accurate and valuable every day.
Women under a certain age are going to be terribly bruised to see the circular history of misogyny. (of course it will ignite an insight that we are not doing enough to stop it--lets get real--we are not)
I feel many who care deeply are going to jolted by the fact that many of the men who grilled Dr. Hill and defended long dong silver - are still the ones holding the hearing. In fact, they are even more powerful today. (Hester Prynne, pray for us.)
Secondly, many women who have chosen to keep their assaults private and buried will be encouraged to do so as the ugliness of male privilege spews contempt in all directions. Please let me offer just a small and tender suggestion, tell women. Write it down and share it with women.
I don't think the #metoo movement has done anything for men whatsoever. It has seriously impacted women. However, if you decide to talk of your assault, TELL WOMEN. The is exactly what you tell kids lost in the mall - TELL WOMEN.
Maddow, Chani Nicholas and a couple of others have spoken about the massive triggering we are all going through. I mean ALL. (Hannah Gadsby #notallmen) This is the moment, the week, the time to tell one another, reach out to those who seem to be falling and, most importantly, TRUST WOMEN.
I am asking, begging, cautioning you to vote for women, Surely it is obvious that if Congress was, by majority, women, this would not be happening.
I BELIEVE DR FORD. little bad brett, with his wife and daughters by his side, is going to use women and girls without a second thought. The men in power think nothing of doing that. This is their world. Don't let it be yours.
