Perhaps until now Dr. Ford felt it was a personal issue. Now she may see that millions of other women could be impacted by a Supreme Court Justice who may have committed a crime, and might have misogynistic views.

What would happen if we questioned adult male survivors of childhood sexual assault and rape in the same manner as we treat women?

It wouldn't be allowed. I love how men who have been molested by clergy are automatically believed and supported, but when women come forward with their stories they are **** shamed and disregarded. Everyone, regardless of gender, should be taken seriously. The double standard is alive and well in the USA. #MAGA

Yes.

Sexism is alive and well in the USA.

I know many of you disagree with me, but I still believe sexism played a huge role in the 2016 election.

Nobody wants to be tagged as racist or sexist.

It is much easier to say a candidate has "problems," than to say: I would never vote for a female president.

I am utterly and completely ashamed of this country and elected officials standing up for Kavanaugh, no matter what.

They are putting party before country, and they are shameful.

Listen to the victims. Let the FBI, investigate, then make a decision. McConnell, et al, have already decided to not listen, and push the good 'ol boy through the process.

Shameful.

I agree that victims should be taken seriously and also that there has been, and still is, a double standard. I am glad that women are being heard but at the same time I think that we (society) need to be careful that we don't go to far the other direction and believe all women just because of their gender (that is bias/discrimination).

Yea, but if the allegation was against you would you feel the same way (based on what she said herself). She was inebriated, foggy, and cant remember.

I would argue that the "bias/discrimination" is that too many people are ready and willing to believe any male victim of assault or abuse, but don't want to believe women. Correcting that, and believing women, also, would just be correcting the current, existing bias.

I agree that all should initially be believed in order to open an investigation. I don't agree that the accused should be pronounced guilty before any investigation has happened.
