This is all over the news right now, but how a Palo Alto University Psychology Professor by the name of Christine Blasey Ford revealed how Supreme Court Nominee, Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her over 30 years at high school party.  Now that Kavanaugh is close to becoming a Supreme Court Judge, her story comes out. Every is having mixed views about this sudden move made by the Democrats. This chick included.

Okay…..this is why I have mixed views…

  1. Why now? Look, this because of me being a sexual assault survivor myself, I don’t like how it’s being used as a trump card (no pun intended). It’s just tacky. I mean, this guy has been in the committee hearing since September 4th. Why now? This should have been out at the 3rd day of the committee at the least. This is
  2. Whether Professor Blasey Ford story is keeps Kavanaugh from becoming Supreme Court Nominee or not, will there be protection for her? I mean, it could be damaging especially if he is elected, because what if she is further traumatized and then she is till harassed??? But even if he doesn’t get elected, she may still harassment. And I can’t imagine for family and young children. Will the Democratic party and the FBI protect her and her family??? I would HATE for her to be traumatized all over again. Speaking from experience, being re-traumatized is the worst.

But no lie, Kavanaugh CANNOT be a Supreme Court Judge. PERIOD. For starters, we already have sexual assaulter/rapist as a President of the United States. Do we need a sexual assaulter/rapist as a Supreme Court Judge??? Hell to freakin’ no! A sexual assaulter/rapist who ironically is for Roe V Wade. I mean like what the f*ck. And I especially don’t want an old white guy tell me what or not what to do with my body. Besides Black women unfortunately are often not heard especially when it comes to reproductive health. I mean, in regards to pregnancy, 3 out of 4 Black Women are more likely to die from birth complication and that has only doubled since 1987 (Ellis, Richards, & Roecker, 2018). Why IS that??? I hope one day to have a child and I am scared sh*tless of what this guy will do when he comes a Supreme Court Judge.

But yes, that we have use this poor woman in order to keep Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court Judge is just wrong! I mean, what more do you need to prove to show that his nomination is really to keep to Trump from becoming impeached, but his nomination is under the guise of tearing down Roe V Wade. Check out the list of Trump’s shameless comments, thoughts and responses:

“All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me-consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”

“If Ivanka were’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” *gags*

“26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men and women together?”

“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?”

A tape of Trump’s appearance on The Wendy Williams Show from 2013, show host Wendy Williams asked Trump and his daughter what she and her dad common.

Ivanka: Either real estate or golf

Trump: Well, I was going to say sex, but I can’t relate that to her.

***What the f**k??? Again?!?!***

” You could see there was blood coming out of her eye. Blood coming out of her where ever.” –Referring to Megyn Kelly “on” menstruation the day after the first Republican debate of the Presidential Campaign.

“Fox viewers give low marks to bimbo Megyn Kelly will consider other programs!”

“Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next President? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not suppose to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”–Referring to Carly Fiorina former head of Hewlett-Packard and Trump Republican rival.

“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f**k her. She was married. And I moved on her very heavily…I moved on her like a b**ch, but I couldn’t get there.” Trump on a unnamed women to Billy Bush who was a host for Access Hollywood.

“I’m going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”  A 1992 appearance on Entertainment Tonight showed Trump watching a group of young girls going up the escalator in Trump Tower. He was 46 at the time.

You have ANY IDEA how hard it was to copy down those quotes??? Holy crap it made me sick to my stomach. Yet… that’s not as sicking that despite of all the self-incriminating sexist and pedophiliac and incest comments Trump has said, he was STILL elected to president and yet for some stupid reason people think he’s “pro-life”??? It’s like the old verbiage goes “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” I don’t know how “good” of a friend Kavanaugh is with Trump, but I know any of those politicians who support Trump and deny the crap, he has said and done, HAS to have some pretty damning things about themselves too.

Kavanaugh is already denying the assault he did upon Professor Blasey Ford, so I hope this is worth it. But let me tell you, regardless whether that man becomes a Supreme Court Judge or not. She has my esteemed respect. To be willing to not come out into this public years after it happen and use her story in order to attempt to stop him from being a Supreme Court Judge to stop him from ending Roe V. Wade, is a freakin’ hero! I mean, she could lose everything if this guy wins! Godforbid he uses his position to somehow ruin her and her family’s life. I really hope the FBI and the Democratic party have something in place to help and protect her and all she hold dear. Her life is also a great way to know you can still have a family too in spite of such a tragic event. Lastly, what really, makes it great is that thankfully she has been attending therapy and her therapist has had all the notes, to prove she has been taking care of her mental health all these years so people can know that this isn’t something she made up.

I really, really, really hope this works, if this does work, it’s a win for her (finally having her story told), it’s a win for people who have been sexually assaulted (giving us more courage) and it’s DEFINITELY a win for women’s health and rights.

“Suicide Rates Have Soared”

NBC Article on Suicide

Over the past weekend while watching the news, I discovered analarming information: suicide rate has risen to a 30 year high! Death by suicide has grown by 24% between 1999 and 2014.  Suicide rates went up by 13 suicides per 100,000 in 2014 compared to 1999 which had 10.5 per 100,000 people. The most affected population are young girls aged 10-14 years old!  In 1999, the suicide rate was 1.7 per 100,000 compared to the year 1999 which had 1 out of 200,000.

These numbers are…well…there are no words I can say about this. I mean, researchers don’t know what exact external factors to pinpoint. They think social media may be one of the factors. Despite the lack of factors, researchers still say to look out of the warning signs for suicide such as talking about wanting to die, talking about feeling unbearable pain, and feeling like a burden to others and becoming socially isolated.

In spite of this, I am glad that there has been more awareness not just on suicide, but on how to recognize it. We need more awareness on mental health disorders, so that people can live life to the fullest and to their full potential. To read more on the information click on the information below:
