  •  I was molested as a child by my father, (7+ / 0-)

    my brother, and a boy at school.  I carry the scars from that experience 30-40 years later.  There, I have some sort of bona fides before I say this...

    Yet, I am able to stand back and look at the possibility that the charges against JA may be trumped up. I'm not so tied up in my identity as a survivor that all that has to happen is someone get accused of rape and I get all OMG over it. What better handle to emotionally manipulate the public, especially members of the public who bear scars like you and I, into hating this guy and believing all the other bad stuff the government and the banks want you and I to believe about him.

    I'm not saying it is completely impossible that he did something wrong, but even my limited knowledge of history leads me to say that it's just a tiny bit convenient that someone who's pissed off The Powers That Be just happens to be a rapist.

    This woman doesn't think Michael Moore owes you or me anything. So don't presume to speak for all sexual abuse survivors, thanks.

    Feingold needs a "I'm not primarying Obama, you dumb fucks!" t-shirt.
