Chrissie Blasey didn't tell anyone because at 15

She knew that every single one of her friends, including her boyfriend, would look the other way and every single one of his friends would lie for him. Even while stumbling drunk, Kavanaugh and Judge could correctly calculate that they could do anything they wanted to anyone they wanted.

Years of depression? Itís from the realization that you are lesser than. The nicest, smartest girl from the country club swim team is less than a drunken, loutish, rapey, backstabbing, lying boy.

As it was and ever shall be.

2. "...and ever shall be" - well, maybe not

A few thousand years worth of patriarchal bullshit ruling over and oppressing us all doesn't mean this is an inevitable and un-fixable condition. Humans could collectively change this for the better, if we keep working at it. It's not like it's something completely out of our control, like gravity or something.

3. Exactly. All of the women I know, and I mean all of them,

tell stories about being groped by boys while in high school. Clumsy, domineering boys who were too stupid to realize that if they were nice and just a little bit patient, consent for such explorations would have happened in the natural course of things.

But, no. The boys just grabbed and honked body parts like bicycle horns. Stupid, immature boys, many of whom went on to be equally clumsy, stupid men. There is no cure for rank stupidity and brutish behavior.

4. And even that type of behavior doesn't come close to holding someone down and covering their mouth

6. That's true, but it's still assaultive.

I expanded my post and made it into an OP.

5. Even older, more established victims are discredited

 

Believe victims.

8. More than 1/3 of my friends say they were sexually assaulted or raped before age 20.

9. Same here. I did not actually add them up, but there was one friend who stated that she has never

been a victim, and we were all shocked.
