I believe Christine Blasey Ford. And I still believe Anita Hill.Twenty-seven years ago Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the US Supreme Court marred by allegations of sexual harassment, and Brett Kavanaugh’s elevation represents a familiar travesty – the result of a deeply-flawed process that, once again, disregarded the experiences of survivors, and undermined the principles of morality and independence that were supposed to define our nation’s highest court.From the very beginning the Kavanaugh confirmation process has been plagued by a lack of transparency. Justice should not be a partisan issue. And I am supremely confident that Kavanaugh has proven himself to be unhinged, unfit, and unqualified. Kavanaugh’s tenure on the bench will be indelibly colored by the stories of … [Read more...] about I believe survivors. I believe Christine Blasey Ford. And I still believe Anita Hill.

President Donald Trump came to Rep. Jim Jordan’s defense Thursday after the Ohio Republican denied claims that he overlooked years of sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University. “I believe him,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One, according to a pool report. “Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I’ve met since I’ve been in Washington.

This event will have cotton candy. I'm bringing the machine. Dear Meredith, This is a breakup letter. When J and I first met, it was love – or at least some sort of connection – at first sight. At the time, I had finally ended a serious relationship that had been on-and-off for a long time, and I was setting up a life after college. J was finishing his undergraduate career. We started dating, and I've never felt so at ease with a partner. He truly brought out all the best parts of me. He told me he loved me first, and was eager to introduce me to his family as his girlfriend. Our sexual chemistry was beautiful. Eventually, he was offered a job that took him about 90 miles away. We made it work pretty well for about one year. We both felt that the inconvenience of a 1.5-hour drive to spend weekends together was worth it because of our connection. Yes, it was difficult, but everything worthwhile takes some sacrifice, right? He began telling me he might be interested in … [Read more...] about ‘I believe in my heart that this is not the end of our journey’
