'#MeToo has done a lot of work exposing uncomfortable truths, but now its eagerness to denounce is taking on a censorious tone. #TimesUp is becoming #ShutUp.

Recall that the movement got going when women who had long remained silent felt emboldened to speak up after many years. Yet last week one such woman was telling her story. There was a broad public attempt to silence this Korean runaway who doesn’t know her own birthday and grew up eating out of garbage cans on the streets of Seoul before being dumped into an orphanage. Her adoptive mother, she says, regularly belittled her, abused her and essentially made her serve as a household domestic. Then this crazy momster labeled her daughter “retarded.” After all of this, Soon-Yi Previn doesn’t get a right to speak? Because she’s married to Woody Allen?'

Dems: We already know he’s guilty

Article here. Excerpt:

'Kavanaugh, many Democrats say, is clearly guilty.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday: "I believe her because she is telling the truth and you know it by her story."

"Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI review the claims," Gillibrand added. "Is that the reaction of an innocent person? It is not."

When Sen. Duckworth (D-Ill.) was asked about Kavanaugh denying the accusation, the senator responded, "Well, I have heard, you know, many, many predators say and refute allegations against them."

Former spokesman for Bernie Sanders and CNN contributor, Symone Sanders, said she didn't even need to wait for more information: "For me there is no debate. I believe Professor Ford. Judge Kavanaugh has lied multiple times under oath."

And here are other select quotes from Democratic lawmakers:

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said: "I believe Dr. Ford as I refer to her because she makes a very credible case. It is really difficult for someone to come forward in this way. Why should she destroy her life? Already there are efforts to cast aspersions on her credibility, to look into her family, all of that. This is really very much like what happened with Anita Hill where she was vilified, she was called names. This cannot happen to Dr. Ford.”

Sen. Blumenthal (D-Conn.): "Let me just say right at the outset I believe. Dr Ford, I believe the survivor here, there’s every reason to believe her. She has come forward courageously and bravely knowing that she would face a nightmare of hostile and vicious scrutiny and challenge. And there are plenty of reasons to disbelieve Judge Kavanaugh after his evasive and seemingly misleading testimony before the Judiciary Committee."'

Six rules for conducting the Ford-Kavanaugh hearings

September 23rd, 2018

Article here. Excerpt:

'Rule 1: No one should presume that either party is lying or telling the truth. There is no gender-based gene for truth telling. Some women tell the truth; some women lie. Some men tell the truth; some men lie. Without hearing any evidence under oath, and subject to cross-examination, no reasonable person should declare psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford to be a victim or federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a perpetrator. Nor should anybody declare the opposite. The issue is an evidentiary one and evidence must be heard and subject to rigorous cross-examination, preferably by an experienced and sensitive female litigator.

Rule 2: The accuser must always testify first, and be subject to cross examination. The accused must then be allowed to respond to the accusation and also be subject to cross-examination. In the bad old days of the Inquisition, the accused was required to testify first without even knowing the grounds of the accusation. The rule of law in the United States had always been the opposite. The accuser accuses first and the accused then has an opportunity to respond to all accusations.'

‘This is what allyship looks like’: HuffPost men reportedly allow women to throw things at them

Article here. Excerpt:

'We’re not sure how seriously to take this tweet from Friday, which comes to us from HuffPost women and politics reporter Laura Bassett, so we’re assuming this gesture of allyship went down in HuffPost’s office.

There’s a lot to unpack here, as they say these days. Was Friday really that special? Do men throw things at women Monday through Thursday? What about the gender fluid?

Apparently, this was how men at HuffPost demonstrated that they were allies in the feminist cause.'

Colleges, Buffeted by Courts and Washington, Navigate Sexual Assault

Article here. Excerpt:

'Colleges and universities are wrestling with a rise in sexual-assault claims, lawsuits brought by those accused of assault and conflicting directions from courts and the federal government on how to handle them.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers four Midwestern states, recently ruled that those accused of sexual assault must be allowed to face their accusers—a right they don’t have in other states. State appeals courts in Texas and California are also weighing in with different standards.

Meanwhile, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is preparing to release new rules strengthening protections for students accused of sexual assault and lightening the burden placed on schools. The rules will narrow the definition of sexual assault that schools are required to adjudicate and will restrict eligible cases to those that occur on campus.'

Letter: Women’s march to demand that old white men get out

Article here. Excerpt:

'To the editor:

I have been following this Supreme Court fiasco since Mitch McConnell stole President Obama's court seat. First Gorsuch and now an alleged assaulter. This is what needs to happen, and it needs to happen before November.

Imagine 25 or 30 million women in the streets of Washington D.C..marching, rallying, organizing, saying, in one voice, no more rapists, no more wife beaters, no more cheating husbands, no more.

Imagine if 30 million women went to Washington and said, in one voice, enough is enough with all you disgusting rich old white men destroying our country and the rest of this earth for the sake of your greed and lust and selfishness. Enough of your plundering of our treasures and killing our loved ones and destroying the planet that we are leaving for our children. Enough! Trump, get out! McConnell, get out! Grassley, get out! And take all the other Republicans with you.

The men I am speaking of, not just the few I named, but pretty much all of the he-man, women-haters club known as the Rethuglican Party would go away cowering with their tail between their legs, crying to Fox News and their big money donors.'

Feminists on Kavanaugh-Ford: ‘We Don’t Need to Prove This Beyond a Reasonable Doubt’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Canaff also said Americans must “start by believing” all women who make allegations of sexual assault against men:

Another thing that we believe in violence against women is to, what we call, “start by believing”: SBB. That doesn’t mean that we continue to believe despite any fact that might emerge. … When we begin by believing survivors, then we allow them to open up their minds. We allow their anxiety to go down, their self-esteem to go up. More facts come forward, we actually reduce bias, and we’re able to get to the truth a lot faster.

Indira Henard, executive director of the DC Rape Crisis Center, said Americans must “believe” Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh:

It is not our job to dissect Dr. Ford’s story or any survivor’s story of sexual violence. It is our job to believe them. It is our job to support them. It is our job to hold those responsible accountable. The burden of proof should not be on survivors of sexual violence. Dr. Ford should not be on trial. What we are seeing in the treatment of Dr. Ford is a travesty.
...
Kiersten Stewart, a director at Futures Without Violence, called on America’s men to “believe women”:

To the men controlling this process: This is your test, as well. Do you respect women, or don’t you? If you do, as you say, then you need to show it with your actions, now, when it matters.
...
To the men out there: Now is your moment to take a stand. You know sexual violence is wrong. Most of you would never do it and hate is as much as we do. Speak out. Believe women. Use your power. Use your voice. Speak up for a fair process.'

#MeToo inspires false accusation in eighth grade leading to “Crucible”-like abuse of boy

Article here. Excerpt:

'Following in the footsteps of George Carlin as the class clown can have serious consequences in the “#MeToo” era, 13-year-old eighth grader Keith Bailey recently learned. He thought he was in trouble when he made a wisecrack about a classmate looking “like a school shooter,” but that was nothing compared with what changing his avatar would trigger. Apparently, teen girls have figured out how to make claims, and ruin the life of anyone they get mad at, thanks to democrats.

On Wednesday afternoon, the vice principal of a Colorado Springs middle school dragged Keith from the classroom and marched him back to her office for a secret two-hour interrogation. Administrators did not notify his parents or allow them to be present while he was questioned, just like in the play, “The Crucible.”

The media can have a powerful influence on young minds, especially “drama” loving teen girls. Dianne Feinstein would be so proud at what she accomplished as a role model.

“They kept asking him the same things over and over,” Keith’s father, Dennis Bailey relates. “They were just intimidating him, asking him the same thing in different ways, asking what he did to these girls and why he did it to them.” Did what? Nobody will say.
...
There is a clue though. The night before Keith was arrested, “one of the girls’ parents phoned the Baileys.”

“Her mother gave us a call and said she just found out that Keith had been inappropriately touching her daughter and she just wanted to let us know.” The woman “obviously believed her daughter but she said it happened at the football game last week.”

“The problem with that is, my wife was at the football game the whole time. My son was there with his girlfriend and my wife didn’t want him unattended, so she had eyes on him the whole time.”

Mrs. Bailey told the girls mother, “that’s funny, I was there watching the whole time, he didn’t leave my sight and he was nowhere near your daughter.”
...
Dennis fumes, “I’m furious personally. I’m furious at these kids, and at their parents for allowing them to do something like this. I’m furious at the school for not even seeming like they are giving him a chance to defend himself, and the way they tried to intimidate him. It seems really shady how they wouldn’t call us until two hours after they started interrogating him.”

The family pieced together the events leading up to the arrest and traced it back to a week prior. The family tells the media, “Keith and his friends were sitting around his house talking about online anonymity. Keith decided to change his Snapchat avatar into a black Bitmoji character.”

Bitmoji’s are design it yourself avatars to identify you with an icon image in social media platforms.

“One of his friends, a girl, immediately noticed and within minutes told him he needed to change it back. She said it was insensitive and racist for a white person to use a black character as an avatar.” The young woman was not about to let the social offense go unpunished.

At school the next day, “the girl started telling everyone he was a racist.” That was only the beginning. “The harassment and accusations persisted for days.”'

The #MeToo movement now represents a threat to basic justice

September 21st, 2018

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'If you ever find yourself on a rape charge and you happen to have Jenni Russell on the jury then you should be worried. Jenni believes that ‘justice is being betrayed by society’s bias towards believing men’. In fact, as Jenni says in a Times column, she knows ‘how men with sterling reputations can behave’.

No need for evidence, ‘we just know’. Such is the prejudice displayed when discussing the Democrat takedown of Brett Kavanaugh. This is the kind of thinking that saw black men lynched in the Deep South on the say-so of the nice white lady. Sure, we just know what they are like. Those black men.

In fact, the last time the Democrats attempted a takedown of a Supreme Court nominee was indeed against that uppity black man Clarence Thomas, who was a conservative and refused to stay in his lane, aka the Democrat plantation. They failed then, but they destroyed his reputation in the eyes of many.

Jenni thinks that the default position has been: ‘Believe the men. That’s been the default position, not just for decades, but for millennia. A woman’s standing is instantly undermined by making an allegation. Women are dismissed as hysterical, or fantasists, or crazy for attention; as vengeful careerists or untrustworthy young girls.’'

Michelle Malkin: ‘Believe Women’ is perilous baloney — believe evidence is truth

Article here. Excerpt:

'I have a message for virtue-signaling men who've rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion.

Stuff it.

Your blanket "Believe Women" bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.

A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford -- who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance during her claimed assault, how she got there or how she left.
...
That is a dumb and dangerous default. The costly toll of "believing women," instead of believing evidence, can be seen in the hundreds and hundreds of cases recorded by the University of Michigan Law School's National Registry of Exonerations involving innocent men falsely accused of rape and rape/murders.'
