Yeah, we all already know about the paper towel tube thing. But at least his argument was that rape wasn’t possible, not that it wasn’t bad. This is far worse.
But now he’s flat out said that what Ford alleged Kavinaugh did was “not that bad.” Not, “it would be bad but it didn’t happen.” Not even “it’s bad but she shouldn’t have been so drunk.” No, full on saying that attempted rape is not a big deal. I quote the relevant section: click the arrow to see the full post with the other rape apologia.
And, yes, I do read that weird use of passive voice about “in his own youth” to possibly be implying something much worse.
What I want to say can’t be said here. I am at that point where I am so angry that I’m actually tearing up–and I’ve never been a victim. Instead, I make this thread because I notice that people are struggling to contain themselves responding in GD.
