I sit here thinking this is what survivors must feel like as I watch republicans steamroll this man over all the witnesses that won't be called or the testimony heard and they annihilate Dr Ford's life. I know I cannot speak from an experience of assault, my wife can, I can't. 1/
I hope my daughter never has to. To tell someone the most horrible thing that has happened to you in front of the world and the men pay you lip service and move on. I know this is nowhere in the same universe of surviving an assault but I feel the rage. I feel powerless. 2/
Who do I tell that would believe me? You say report, it's your obligation. Do I tell my family who shames me? Do I tell the cop who blames me? Do I tell a priest who silences me. Do I tell congress who won't believe me? Do I tell the media who sensationalizes me? 3/
They fight for a say in their own body. They fight not to get raped. They fight for someone to believe them and bring justice. They fight for equal pay. They fight to be equal. They fight to thrive. They fight to just be who they are. They fight every God damn day to just be.4/
I have been re-evaluating my conduct towards women during my life some of it was not good or respectful. For that, I am truly sorry. I am telling my sons how to treat women respectfully, no means no. They are worthy of respect, admiration and love. Never raise a hand in anger. 5/
I share with my daughter what to watch out for in a boyfriend and choose wisely. Success does not mean good or kind. I am continuing to evolve with the help of my reSisters here. Thank you for that. I am with you. I believe you. You are not alone there are millions behind you. 6/
I watched the Anita Hill hearings when I was at OU. I didn't understand then. I wasn't ready to grasp all that occurred in that hearing. After yesterday I am fully aware. I experienced another life tectonic shift in my life. I can't abide this. I will fight with you. 7/
I will fight beside you. With you. For you. You are fierce and strong and don't need a man to tell you how to wage a war you have been fighting for a lifetime. But I am humbled and awed by your strength and courage and will use my voice to amplify yours at the outrage of this 8/
This I pledge to my sisters, my wife, my daughter. We will make a better world for all of us, everyone and ensure we all are treated with dignity and respect. End/ #IBelieveChristine #IamDrFord #VoteNoToKavanaugh #basta
