If we don't get rid of Franken, we can't advocate against that pedophile in AL. Hopefully Mr. Franken can turn this into something good. He's certainly smart enough and purports to care about the wimmins.

Gotcha. Didn't know if you were spared knowing his recent inanity. My overall thought today: I am so glad these mf evil deeds are catching up to them, but it is so difficult for the victims even in this break-through year, because they have to re-live the damage and take new flack from the victim blamers.

 ‎· Stephªn1e☀️CogSc1L1brªr1ªn☀️
Comment

@cogscilibrarian: It is sad-making but I remember someone on Twitter saying about #MeToo “All your faves. ALLLLLL your faves.” Schneiderman wasn’t exactly a fave for me (that is, not like an actor I follow), but I took that tweet to mean that these revelations will come out about people we like, about people on “our side”, etc. It’s painful, partly because it underlines how widespread it is and how much the enforced silence and silencing of women minimizes the scale of it. I knew what happened to me and maybe one or two other women. I never knew other than as reported statistics just HOW MANY women this happened to, and particularly how many of the perpetrators just kept getting sent up the ladder.
