I usually don’t want live hearings and instead read the synopsis later. I have an anxiety disorder and I’ve found this helps manage it. But last week I stayed home and watched every second of Dr Ford and Kavanaugh. I still haven’t recovered #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors /1
I wanted to bear witness to Dr Ford’s story. Part of me believed that all the women watching could collectively send support her way. Dr Ford was brave and patriotic and I’m deeply grateful she opened her trauma to try and save us #BelieveSurvivors #StopKavanaugh /2
I watched the gaslighting of the fake politeness of the prosecutor and GOP senators claiming they believed Dr Ford and thanking her for her testimony. But it was Kavanaugh’s testimony that I can’t shake #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors /3
I have multiple experiences of sexual harassment and assault in my life but that’s not what I was thinking of during the long rambling statement. My father is emotionally abusive and what I saw in Kavanaugh’s statement was the gaslighting of an abuser #StopKavanaugh /4
Whenever my father is called on his behavior he vacillates between tearful victimization and angry explosive blame. He’s a very successful manipulator and I’ve had people in my life defend him and say I was being harsh #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors /5
I can’t watch the statements today. I don’t have it in me to go to marches at the moment. I have been fighting this fight generally my whole life and Kavanaugh specifically for months. I’ve ripped open my trauma and bled for the fight over and over #StopKavanaugh /6
Many women and survivors feel as I do today. We’re exhausted and our wounds are exposed. So please. If you are newer to this fight or aren’t as scarred take up a little more for us today. #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors
