THREAD: I want to tell you a story that is relevant to these random women defending Kavanaugh. This happens all of the time. Women defend men who they consider to be friends from allegations all the time. This happened to me IRL.... My rapist was a "friend." He was the boyfriend of one of my roommates. We had a lot of mutual friends and when he raped me everyone took sides. There is even a well known person #ONHERE who gives talks on rape culture who has NEVER called me ever and took a side...it wasn't mine

If you are a white journalist and you are using "racially charged" to describe an incident where a white woman called a black woman an ape you should probably seek out a new profession. Words aren't your thing. I sometimes wonder what white people would consider racism because we're always told [insert description of the incident] isn't racist and that Black people are overreacting.

Thread: It’s important to understand sexual abuse and harassment as a spectrum of behavior. everyday Harassment (ie catcalling) on one end and Harvey/Cosby on the other end.
