Consider Christine Blasey Ford — she came forward to tell her story and help the country understand exactly what kind of man Brett Kavanaugh is. Since testifying, she has been unable to return to her job as a professor, has moved multiple times, and pays out of pocket for private security.
To this: while these hearings were going on, I wrote a Medium.com piece about how my own experience come 44 years ago was nearly identical https://medium.com/@jhubbel/how-the-kavanaugh-hearings-caused-me-to-revisit-my-own-rapes-44-years-ago-61c69b1a94e3
That article garnered some trolls, which on this site is rare by comparison. I am very clear that I would not have survived anything close to what Ms. Ford has endured. Most of us couldn’t . I’d have ended bankrupt and homeless. Which is why so many of us the age of Fake News by a Fake President, don’t dare go public. This is a fight for the country’s soul, as it were. For how a country treats its women, and its animals- to say nothing of its treasure of national resources (what is left at this point), speaks to that country’s maturity. By that measure we are toddlers with shit in our pants.
