So, I won’t lie, son. Today’s post is more of a philosophical debate than an indictment on Brett Kavanaugh. Frankly, I have no idea what to make of the allegations against him, man. Shit, Christine Blasey Ford could very well be telling the truth about her high school encounter with Kavanaugh. Deborah Ramirez could very well be telling the truth about her Yale University encounter with Kavanaugh. Keeping it a buck, we’ll only know for sure once the facts come out, fam. However, the women who are so quick to defend Kavanaugh confuse, bruh. Look, in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, what does it mean when women don’t believe women’s stories of assault?
Look, I was inspired to write this when I saw roughly 75 women hold a press conference to support Kavanaugh. Essentially, they were there to refute all of the claims against him and establish his credibility. My thing is, why are all of these women so ready to dismiss the accusations against him? Do they believe that their personal relationships with him automatically mean that he couldn’t have committed these acts? Man, one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other, son. Listen, just because they had a positive experience with him doesn’t mean that he didn’t assault these women. All I know is, we’re looking at a group of women victim-shame other women. Clearly, that’s not a good look for anyone, fam.
The way I see it, situations like this damage the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, bruh. Real talk, if women don’t even have other women as allies, then how can behavior be changed and justice be served? Now, like I alluded to earlier, I have no idea what happened between Kavanaugh, Ford and Ramirez. Frankly, no one does but the parties involved, son. However, it’s unnerving how fast people will ignore problematic claims when they involve someone they know. Hell, we saw the same shit happen with Lena Dunham. Listen, she was a “feminist” until a guy she knew got accused, man. Then, all of a sudden, a woman’s claims shouldn’t be taken seriously. All in all, this sets a dangerous precedent, fam.
In the end, I don’t know what’s going on, son. Ultimately, this entire Supreme Court process has been a shit-show, man. By and by, there are a multitude of reasons why Kavanaugh shouldn’t be allowed on the bench, fam. At the end of the day, if these allegations are true, this just solidifies it, bruh. All I can say is, if Ford and Ramirez are being real, then every last one of Kavanaugh’s supporters should be ashamed of themselves, brethren. That is all. LC out.
