In ANY type of criminal case, Rape, Assault, Robbery etc., a person can be convicted solely on the word of a complainant.

If you think that's not enough in a Rape case, you should be similarly concerned about every other type of criminal prosecution.
Until relatively recently in most US states, in order to prosecute rape cases there was an additional legal requirement of "Corroboration." This was only needed in rape cases. So in a robbery case, I could say you stole $1000 from me & that would be enough for a conviction.
But in a rape case, there had to be something more, for instance, an eyewitness. Clearly rape cases were the least likely to have this sort of "corroborating" evidence, by their very nature, so to require this extra proof was illogical & unfair.

1 We’ve seen how low the left goes in an attempt to “win” with the fake rape smear campaign in an attempt to not #ConfirmJudgeKavanaugh Apply this thinking to #NadiaMurad “winning” the #NobelPeacePrize2018 Her Attorney? #AmalClooney
2 First of all, Amal’s husband #georgeclooney covered for #MeToo members #lesmoonves & #HarveyWeinstein put abuser #CaseyAffleck in his Oceans movies, lamented the punishment for child rapist Polanski & was accused of blacklisting assault whistleblowers on ER.That actress is dead
3 Amal says she wants to help Nadia defeat Isis in a legal tribunal. Odd considering her pals created & enabled Isis. After Qaddafi’s death, Libya, the apex of Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State under Obama, basketball buddy George, created a vacuum for Isis to grow.

Yes, I was used as an underage honey pot/spy as part of a C(I)A operation that U.S. taxpayers funded.
(fionabarnett.org/2018/09/09/hol…)
It is part of the bigger picture of the DOD/C(I)A/M16 #MKultra #mindcontrol operations that U.S. taxpayers also paid for.

I was just saying to @IsaacKappy that one of the reasons I came forward publicly Oct 13, 2017 regarding #pedopredator Serial Child Rapist Roman Polanski is because Polanski is BFFs w Harvey Weinstein who runs w the #ClintonCrimeFamily which includes Soros & Rothschilds...

Let's talk about sex, #Kavanaugh & Venn diagram overlap of male entitlement.

I've written a lot about sex in various contexts. In the late 80s/early 90s I also gave safe sex workshops back when folks my age were dying 24/7 from #AIDS. My 1st book was on juvenile prostitution.

Most of us know consensual and non-consensual sex differ. The entirety of #Kavanaugh's defense and his defenders' outrage is predicated on the presumption that no teenaged boy knows what consent is.

THEY. KNOW.

Some, like their adult counterparts, don't care.

This is key.

Since #MeToo we've seen egregious serial rapists like #BillCosby and #HarveyWeinstein exposed & attempts made to prosecute them.

But there are "lesser" sexual assaults we've given a lighter hand to: Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Mark Halperin, Louis CK--too many to list.

Dear @SenatorCollins - I'll tell you why I waited to report a coworker who touched me inappropriately, and why reports of harassment and assault can have "odd timing". 1/12 #MeToo #Kavanaugh
At an event for a coworker who was leaving the company, I was chatting with a married male coworker. Suddenly his hand was up the back of my blouse, almost touching my bra.

I froze in shock for a second, then backed away, stammering "What are you doing?" 2/12 #TuesdayThoughts
He smiled and said "nothing". I walked away and joined some other coworkers. He stayed away from me after that.

I told my boyfriend about it, but decided not to report to HR for several reasons. 3/12 #RoyMoore

I was shocked to read this article. Shocked because it mentioned nothing about his own obvious problems. Yes, he was spot on with his #Clinton thoughts, But what were his own demons? @realDonaldTrump #TrumpWorld ijr.com/2018/07/110990…

Well it's pretty simple tbh

Would you like me to explain?

Trump was referring to US/RU relations not the supposed "hacking"

I say supposed because it was already disproven by #Binney

The wider press dismissed it & referred to him as a conspiracy theorist, but failed to mention he's the former head of @NSA

Given the fact that the @FBI were denied access to the server in favour of a private org (and DNC client), @CrowdStrike the question becomes:

Is #Mueller's indictment based on actual evidence from the server OR a report from crowdstrike?

545-#Naomi is certainly very cozy with the #Rothschild family. She seems to know David, Nat, James, & even Lord Jacob de Rothschild himself.
For somebody whose job is to look pretty and walk catwalks, she certainly seems well connected. Why would that be? 🤔

1) @RandyRRQuaid IS ON FIRE!

Did past actors and actresses really die from suicide or did #HarveyWeinstein have something to do with it?🤔

He also attaches a 39-pg pleading to the courts.

Next up: Black Cube — the Israeli private security firm that made headlines for targeting accusers of #HarveyWeinstein — is back in the news. Last yr it tried to dig up dirt on former Obama officials who had worked on the #Iran nuclear — in an effort to discredit the deal itself.
One of those former Obama officials was @ColinKahl. Black Cube tried to get to him through his wife, @RebeccaKahl, a stay-at-home mom. An operative emailed her a year ago about donating to their daughter’s DC public school. nbcnews.com/news/world/bla…
.@RebeccaKahl says the outreach felt strange, and after a brief exchange, she stopped responding. #OnAssignment

Look at the symbology of the books #HarveyWeinstein was carrying. Shades of #QAnon cryptography. Why the Kazan reference? What did Kazan do? He was an informant during the HUAC days.
Arrest protocol. Never smile, never smirk. Look as though they have just arrested an innocent man. Bad optics even worse body language here. Or does this give more important people very serious reason to be petrified? #QAnon symbology here.

#QAnon #JaredCohen led Google in donating $3 million to create a database system to connect 65 independent hotlines used to report human trafficking.
#QAnon #Clinton #IranIsNext "Clinton protected Cohen" when Obama asked why he wasn't fired? Who is the good guy in this?
Well.....not sure these are two I would want supporting me:
"Cohen and Schmidt’s book, The New Digital Age, appeared in 2013, with glowing blurbs from Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright. "

I had to take the day away from Twitter after I read #UmaThurman's story. I was shattered.

I was raped & nearly killed a few years ago. I wrote about it for my local newspaper and @HuffPost.

[TW for this thread]

Rape: Another Coming-Out Story huffingtonpost.com/victoria-a-bro…
I'm not sure why #UmaThurman's story hit me. Was it because 30yr old me dodged a bullet with #HarveyWeinstein? Was it because her friend saw her disheveled and hysterical? Was it because of what happened in that car scene?

No way to know. #PTSD is like that. Unpredictable.

2/
I can tell you that I will never fully recover.

I am not alone in this. We talk about #survivors, but we never talk about how we're supposed to become a survivor.

I wasn't killed, but I was beaten, bitten, punched, slapped, sodomized and raped.

I have permanent scars.

1. END OF WEEK THOUGHT: One of the many, obvious benefits of getting out of the media/Twitter bubble and talking to real people is that you get a much more accurate view of how real people are thinking
2. This week I've spoken with hundreds of teenagers and over 100 parents across UK and hot topic was fear around the male/female interface in light of #MeToo #PresidentsClub #HarveyWeinstein and even #DartsWalkOnGirls #f1gridgirls
3. One woman, a mother of sons, said this, and it genuinely made me well up. "Are today's and tomorrow's boys going to made to pay for the sins of their forefathers?" She told me how she saw her son retreating, he was afraid

1. While revelations about sexual misconduct and assault are grabbing entertainment and political headlines, #HigherEducation leaders should be asking themselves about their own institutions.
2. There are over 3000 4 year degree granting institutions in the country and 1700 2 year institutions enrolling roughly 20 million students. Title IV institutions employ 3.9 million individuals.
3. @AAUniversities' 2015 climate survey showed that 23.1% of female undergraduates experienced "nonconsensual sexual contact by physical force, threats of physical force, or incapacitation since they enrolled at their university."

Most men that I know, men who respect women as equals, are shocked when allegations come out about people like #HarveyWeinstein, #BillCosby, #LouisCK. They are in shock when men they know are accused of sexually harassing or assaulting women. THREAD 1 #BelieveWomen #RWU #MeToo
Some men find it very hard to believe that these things are so common, because they would never DO those things. If I were a man and I hadn’t experienced harassment and inappropriate behavior multiple times, I would probably find it difficult to believe. 2 #MeToo #BelieveHer
I decided to share about what I’ve experienced, so that good men who respect women can start to understand that these things happen to women know they know, work with, are related to, and love, every day. Their friends, neighbors, coworkers, relatives. 3 #sexualharassment

Hollywood’s Most Decent Fella on Weinstein, Trump and History nyti.ms/2kGP9P2
1/ This such a great interview on many levels. I’m fascinated by his comments about #HarveyWeinstein.
2/ #HarveyWeinstein IS a despicable monster to say the least. I’m fascinated by his inner circle those that helped victimize his victims.

We might want to consider the reality that until MEN wanted to take #HarveyWeinstein down, nothing was done about his serial sexual assault.
We might also consider men have NOT wanted to take down #BillCosby,RomanPolanski(that 13yr old was raped at Jack Nicholson's) or WoodyAllen.
#CourtneyLove spoke out about #HarveyWeinsten in 2005 but was dismissed as a crazy lady b/c of her drug issues. Abuse victims self-medicate.

1) WHY WOMEN KEEP SILENT

So, I was raped when I was about four. It never occurred to me to say anything until I was about eleven.
2) At four, I didn't know what the term rape meant; I knew what had been done and that it wasn't right but who would I tell?? I was ashamed.
3) I remember thinking I'd be mortified if my parents ever found out I'd been a "participant" in this lewd act. God forbid they found out.
