On October 9, 2018, the Independent published a clever Indy 100 article that translates for men, why so many women have been so viscerally upset over the fast tracking by GOP US senators of the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become the next US Supreme Court justice, especially after a credible, reputable female witness Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was discounted by them as being confused over her sexual assault allegations against a drunken Judge Kavanaugh and his friend while they were in high school.
Here are excerpts from the article, “A writer used a perfect analogy to explain why women are so opposed to Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment:”
“The past few weeks has arguably been one of the most uncomfortable and controversial in the history of American politics. “
“Last week, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice following an FBI investigation in sexual assault claims made against him by Dr Christine Blasey Ford.” (Even FBI Drector Chris Wray has admitted that FBI probe had strict limits placed on it by White House, at recent US Congressional hearing.)
“Although they are still claims and allegations, the way that Ford was treated during the investigation and afterwards was a little hard to stomach.”
“Yet for some, who haven’t experienced sexual assault, sympathising with Ford proved to be difficult, when it really shouldn’t have been.”
“In an attempt to fix that, writer A.R. Moxon, composed a clever analogy for men, to explain why it’s so painful for women to hear stories like Ford’s and for them to be basically ignored.”
“His Twitter thread cleverly uses the painful experience of a man being kicked in the genitals as a way of perfectly explaining why most women will object to Kavanaugh’s appointment, guilty or not guilty.”
