What a dinkwash.
I can confirm that regarding my private middle school and HS. The class sizes are small enough and the over-all academic culture so insular (and the parents usually so affluent) that there’s a tendency to bond in that way because (as I’ve heard several people who went to my school say) those who didn’t go there “wouldn’t understand.”
I’ve found that this is true whether the school’s non-academic culture has a positive or negative reputation.
Oh, all you poor ‘White ladies’ who are clearly missing out on “such a good thing!”
Note that it isn’t just that he attempted (and thankfully failed), but also that he never showed remorse, never showed a sign that he ever thought of women as anything other than notches on his belt.
This man does not deserve even the position he now holds, much less a seat on the supreme court.
This is what Dennis Prager, nationally syndicated right-wing radio host and one of the closest things the modern-day right has to an “intellectual,” recently had to say about past incidents of sexual assault involving his own wife:
When my wife was a waitress in her mid teens, the manager of her restaurant grabbed her breasts and squeezed them on numerous occasions. She told him to buzz off, figured out how to avoid being in places where they were alone, and continued going about her job. That’s empowerment.
“Empowerment” is an underage girl forced to live in fear of being left alone with the adult manager who sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions.
He also says that taking the Kavanaugh accusations seriously “undermines the foundational moral principles of any decent society.” Because decent societies are founded on the principle of letting sexual assaulters live without fear of consequence, I guess.
This is the face of the modern Republican party. Men who would literally sacrifice their virgin daughters on the altar of so-called conservatism.
I think it is a pretty safe bet that any nominee that is attractive to Trumplicans is going to have… “ethical lapses” similar in severity to sexually assaulting a minor.
Whether it’s this, or following the NRA line after school shootings, or de-funding education, or blocking attempts to combat climate change, the GOP is in so many ways the party of Moloch.
If Trump really believed Mexicans are all rapists he would have nominated one to the Supreme Court by now.
Rape: When a brown or black person has looks a white woman.
Consent: When a rich white guy decides to engage in sexual behavior.
The first rule of the Georgetown Prep is:
“Don’t talk about the gang rapes?”
Avanatti may come off as a fairly skeezy lawyer but so far he’s been able to back up just about every claim he’s made.
I bet we see at least two more women come forward about Kavanaugh before the end of the week.
No, not Avenatti; I’m more mind-boggled by the whole ‘coordinated gang rape’ aspect.
This is so much worse than Clarence Thomas, (who is still a predatory asshat.)
Look, you can’t hold teens accountable to the standards of an adult just because they engage in gang rape.
(Unless they’re a bunch of brown-skinned teens who were falsely accused of a gang rape, then you take out full-page ads in the New York Times calling for their execution. Then you never, ever give them the benefit of the doubt even years after DNA evidence and another rapist’s confession proves their innocence.)
Even though I know you’re being facetious:
Like fuck “we can’t;” they do it to Black and Brown teens, all the damn time.
Moloch and Mammon, yes. The Christianity is merely a paintjob these days, and even that’s peeling off fast.
