    So looking at the Kavanaugh hearings, Dr. Ford is telling the truth and is certain it was in fact Kavanaugh who attacked her.

    Anyone believing otherwise are one of the Trumpites totally brainwashed.

    These problems are in the area of PTSD and cannot be ignored. Of course Trumpites will kill any such study as BS.

    I think, the difficulty that some men seem to have to accept these allegations, is because that's how men of different cultures have always behaved towards women - they don't seem to think it's wrong.

    Why do women wait for 30 years to report an incident? This has happened in many cases.

    The first reason I can think of is that living in a culture where mostly men are in higher job positions (and often family too), you try to ignore what happened thinking it shouldn't matter, or that you will forget. And you do somehow, you put it behind you. Then eventually when you are reminded that other women have experienced the same (many years later), it all comes back. Secondly, there was nobody else there who could testify how uncomfortable, unpleasant and sometimes scary, this situation was - to many others it may not be such a big thing.

    When true: At first, they have too much to lose and too little to gain. Eventually for some, that reverses itself.

    Hell that is still happening today, look at the women who accused the guy that was going to be appointed a judge to the supreme court. She lost and he got his appointment and she will probably end up losing her Job.

    Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh as his replacement, Kavanaugh was confirmed in October 2018. They didn't believe the woman. Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as Supreme Court judge after winning Senate vote by 50 to 48.

    So where does it go from here?

    From what I read, there will be backlash on women, it has happened before - but this may not be something to talk about here. I don't think I have much more to say on this topic.

    There bloody well better NOT be repercussions on Dr. Ford. I think there will be backlash big time if there is.

    If only your opinion was evidence.

    Yeah, I know, Kavanaugh is just a misunderstood choir boy going to church 3X a week and feeding the poor the other 4 days. Sorry, 3 days, on day 7 he rests.

    We will have to wait and see, It appears she wasn't believed my a minor majority. So that would mean she lied under oath. I know that doesn't seem fair, but sometimes the law just doesn't work. The bad guy sometimes wins!!!

    I know. Facts however, don't care about your feelings.

    Here are some facts.

    The second door that Ford wanted in 2012, that caused her to confide in her husband and her therapist...was built in 2008.
    Someone came forward to claim that Ford tutored a friend in how to pass a polygraph test. This was a man however, so his testimony does not have to be believed.
    Ford claimed to be afraid of flying, but clearly isn't. She took the polygraph test in a hotel beside the Airport she was about to leave from, and regularly visits places such as Hawaii for her hobbies.
    Of the 4 named witnesses, none of them could even corroborate that the event even took place. Her "Friend" denied knowing Kavanaugh at all.
    Ford refused to hand over her Psychiatrists records to the FBI investigation.
    The FBI investigation reported that democrats tried to talk "witnesses" into changing their stories.
    Instead of being given the proper treatment, Ford was given a Partisan Lawyer, her file was leaked, and she was not made aware of the offer to give her testimony in private at her home.
    After the trial a Democratic Intern was charged with doxxing republican senators (Fienstien's intern).


    Here is not a fact....Kavanaugh has to be guilty because Ford is a woman.
