I just woke up from the worst dream

This witch was making a speech where she said all victims of assault who petition Congress r paid actors & lib interest groups
She berated them for daring to question a spoiled white boy’s right to get whatever he wanted after he had a tantrum
Then millions of trolls went online to demand we all prove that we’ve been assaulted
They gaslighted us over how memory works & about who the real victims are

They demanded evidence but our own eyewitness testimony & years of pain didn’t count

All while shouting about values
They bought into wild conspiracy theories about why we came forward while demanding that anything we said had to be proven w/ corroborating contemporaneous evidence. Something they didn’t seem to need to believe the conspiracies

And as we cried, they mocked us and laughed at us
I’m so glad that was only a nightmare I was having, because I shudder to think about a world in which one side is so blinded by partisanship that they cannot recognize genuine anguish in another person’s voice

In their eyes. In their tears.

Where they turn to mocking not hugs
Where an evil witch can dismiss all that & side w/ our abusers.

Thank God it was a nightmare, because I do not know how I’d survive in such a world
