On Nov 8, 2016, I was shocked, in disbelief, I cried all night, I cried for weeks on/off that America is sexist.
It made my anxiety escalate, made me depressed & insomniac.
What cheered me up was lookin forward to Nov 6, 2018.
Today sucks but we're 30 days closer to Nov 6.
What broke my heart 11/08/16 that America said, like today: we know dude sexually assaults women, we don't care about what happened to you.
Nov 8, 2016 & Today October 6, 2018 was an assault to #MeToo survivors.
As a survivor & mother of a little girl is a double punch to my gut.

The audacity of the "president"of the United States asking why Dr Christine Blasey Ford didn't contact FBI 35 yrs ago.
First of all it was not a federal crime for her to contact FBI.
Second of all she was 15.
I was groped at 7 yrs old, 30 yrs later still haven't told my parents.
A 12 yr old groped me under my skirt.
My mom feet ahead of me, unaware of what was done to me at the school entrance, early in the morning.
I remember every detail of that day at 37 yrs old.
I thought I'd get in trouble.
It was traumatic.

Titan of Kansas Republican politics shunning Kris Kobach, her party’s nominee for governor.
Nancy Kassebaum, Kansas 3 term senator, will support Democrat @SenatorKelly campaign.
Kassebaum joins former GOP Governor Bill Graves, who supports Kelly. #BlueWave kansascity.com/news/politics-…
“I’m a Republican, but that doesn’t mean you walk lock step always with the party.
It seems to me that Kobach has developed a record that shows focus on ways & how to accomplish his end goals that I think aren't the best for Kansas.”

Doesn't matter if a sexual assault happened 30 yrs ago, 10 yrs ago, 10 months ago, 10 weeks ago, 10 days ago, 10 mins ago
Christine Blasey Ford #MeToo survival story was inflicted by Kavanaugh, her credibility is being scrutinized
That's why survivors don't speak up
I believe her
It was so painful to her...
She was so ashamed of it, which many assault survivors feel when it isn't their fault that some men are entitled pigs...
... she didn't speak of her sexual assault for decades.
What that tells me as a survivor myself, she repressed that memory.

Those who have eyes can see.
Those with even half a brain can think for themselves.
So sick & tired of the lies, enough.

"Miller’s actions at WH perpetrated negativity, violence, malice, brutality.
In particular, the zero-tolerance policy Miller helped craft is completely antithetical to everything I know about Judaism, Jewish law & Jewish values."

“From the Jewish perspective, the parent-child relationship is sacrosanct.
Disrupting it is cruel.

Not familiar with many sports
Played Tennis in High School cause it's 1 of the couple sports I'm good at, the other 1 is volleyball
Always admired Serena Williams, even if I don't watch Tennis, I see her as a role model for women of all ages
She'll always be an empowering icon
It breaks my heart to see that her career, her body of work is being dismissed because she lost her temper.
The double standards that we women face daily.
John McEnroe is notorious for losing his sh*t on the court quite frequently.
Did he get fined?
Was he labeled hysterical?

Democrats need 2 seats to flip the senate
They need 1 of the following scenarios to come true:
•Democrats need to win Republican held seats in Arizona & Nevada
•They need to hold on to all 26 of their currently held seats, including Indiana & Missouri cnn.com/2018/09/08/pol…
If Democrats lose 1 of their seats, they need to take Arizona, Nevada & Tennessee.
Democrats could sub in Texas for 1 of these 3 seats or carry all 4 & afford to lose 2 of their seats.
They can't afford to lose in West Virginia, where tRump won by more than 40 points in 2016.
