The senators who ignore rape culture also ignore racism. The homophobic lawmakers are also usually willing to pass anti-black laws. The ones who take away women’s rights also take away non-white people rights, health care and equal opportunity.
Maybe if white folks who were horrified by how Republican dickheads treated sexaul assault survivors paid attention and god forbid, lobbied against anti-black laws, there would be more understanding of how long and how poorly African Americans have been treated in this society.
Harvey Weinstein was hunting actresses all over the world — New York, Los Angeles, and in London. He would pursue them, get into their hotel rooms and rape them.
Bill Cosby drugged and raped dozens of women — how is this very different of the accusation that Kavanaugh was at a party where a woman was gang raped? It’s not.
There have been hundreds of pedophile priests in both America and Europe.
Brett Kavanaugh’s high school was saturated with alcohol and he lied repeatedly about all sorts of sexual acts.
Does it really seem so insane that he might have gotten women drunk purposely in order to help them along to getting gang raped?
Not to me. Powerful people are the ones who pull this kind of shit because they’re powerful and think they can get away with it.
The idea that this accusation was dismissed as outrageous is fucked up.
Headline from Salon:
NBC News anchor Megyn Kelly defends Susan Collins: “It could have been a case of mistaken identity”
Neither Megyn Kelly nor Ol’ Hag Collins knows if it was another attacker. The only people who know are Christine Blasey Ford and Lil’ Fucker Kavanaugh. And by voting for Lil’ Fucker you’re saying he wasn’t the attacker.
Of course, she had nothing to gain from coming forward with her story and he had everything to lose.
These foul, heartless women are desperately trying to create some scenario where they don’t have karma for voting for a lying, drunkard, sexual predator.
She was not caught in a single lie and he lied his ass off.
Isn’t this a relevant question?
How are women supposed to get ahead if they’re not physically safe in workspaces, schools, and at home.
She’s written books about women getting paid and asserting themselves and all of a sudden she’s out of this whole Kavanaugh episode.
Seems incredibly cynical and gutless.
“As I watch many of the Senators speak and vote on the floor of the Senate I feel like I’m right back at Yale where half the room is laughing and looking the other way,” she continued. “Only this time, instead of drunk college kids, it is US Senators who are deliberately ignoring his behavior.”
Silence from all the self righteous tech douchebags.
Silence from all the Wall St honchos who comment on everything.
Silence from all the hedge fund assholes who love to give comments on everything.
And full on dick behavior from the Republican party to destroy these women to get this weasel, lying fuckface on the Supreme court.
This is great society we got going here.
From Salon here:
“I’m a victim of sexual assault,” Conway told Tapper after clearing her throat. “I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. You have to be responsible for your own conduct. This is not Bill Cosby. Those comparisons I hear on the network are a disgrace and the anchor should have called them out.”
What a snake ass bitch strategy for her to take.
She’s basically saying that if women get assaulted they have to not blame men and hold themselves ‘responsible for their own conduct.’
Blech, I don’t know how she sleeps at night. If she wants to take that view she should keep that view to herself as it’s very primitive is straight up victim blaming.
To take your own sexual assault and use it for a political attack — fucking low self-esteem and low class shit.
Tim Cook loves identity politics and has stepped in to voice support for both gay rights and immigrants.
Silence this week. Deafening silence. Seems like a perfect place to step up as a really important person in our society and support sexual assault survivors.
Could it be that Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would be very profitable for Apple?
Deregulation, tax cutting, all the shit these corporate titans love.
I guess when you’re an important member in society you get to pick and choose what issues you speak about and I guess rape culture, bullying and bro culture doesn’t make the cut for Mr. Cook.
