Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court has divided the country between those who believed her testimony, and those who thought that she was just a pawn of the Democrats, lying for attention and political gain.
At the time when supporters of the #MeToo movement continue to share their stories of s*xual assault and criticize the toxic masculinity, the supporters of the #HimToo backlash and claim that now men should be scared for their lives, since, according to them, any man can be taken down by a woman’s false r*pe accusation.
Laura Loomer, a conservative journalist, was part of the later group, and she tweeted:
“If you have a son, make sure you buy him a note pad, a body camera, & a recording device. Get him a battery pack too so he can always protect himself with video evidence of every single encounter he has with a woman. Men aren’t safe in America anymore. There is a war on men.”
Sure, even though at least one in six women in America has been s*xually assaulted, and men almost never suffer any consequences for those actions, maybe men are the ones who should be constantly scared, worried, and afraid to go outside.
The internet was, naturally, having none of that, and neither do we. The responses were coming in hot and fast within hours of her tweet, and people supported the victims of s*xual assault and were completely against the idea that men are the ones with the big problems these days.
