I was so upset when I did this I could hardly letter.
Lindsey Graham said, direct quote,
“You are supposed to be Bill Cosby when you are a Junior and Senior in Hag School!”
When I heard that I could not believe it.
I backed up the video and had to listen again and again.
I am so fucking pissed I can’t see straight.
What Mr. Graham was saying was that Junior and Senior boys should be given a pass to the crimes of Bill Cosby: to drug, abuse, hold down, and rape girls:
“Cosby has been convicted of three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault:
for penetration without consent, penetration while the victim was unconscious,
and penetration after administering an intoxicant.” New Yorker.
I can’t get this out of my head.
Nearly every woman has assault stories, and this man, a Senator,
has the audacity to say that it is fine for high school boys to behave like Cosby…
That the GOP doesn’t want a full investigation, to hear the other witnesses.
Our hearings are a sham.
I could not make this up.
I have to assume that right-wing news outlets are not reporting on this,
and am shocked that it is not the lead story in every paper…
That a sitting senator in a hearing about a Supreme Court Judge
would endorse Bill Cosby’s behavior.
I can’t stay silent. This bothers me too much.
I was very lucky when I told my management of my incidents.
They were supportive.
I cannot imagine what this is like for those who never tell anyone.
