When there is no intercourse!
The Brett Kavanaugh media blitz yesterday (on Fox) to ‘clear his name’ brought to light an interesting echo: he claimed, while choking back tears, that he was a virgin all through high school. At the surface level, that statement is probably true (hence his offer to take a polygraph test), but that doesn’t say that he hadn’t ‘tried it on’ with a girl or two during those same years.
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman”
When Bill Clinton said that in 1997* about Monica Lewinski, he probably thought that he was speaking the God’s honest truth, too.
But it brings up the question: do young American men think that sex is only vaginal penetration?
If so, then they have no understanding of why their ‘little bit of fun’ is so destructive to young women, to all women.
According to Wikipedia: “Sexual abuse, also referred to as molestation, is usually undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another. It is often perpetrated using force or by taking advantage of another. When force is immediate, of short duration, or infrequent, it is called sexual assault. The offender is referred to as a sexual abuser or (often pejoratively) molester.”
IF Christine Blasey Ford is not mistaken in identifying Brett Kavanaugh as the person who ‘tried it on’ at that party 35 years ago, he is guilty of sexual assault.
Unfortunately, the statute of limitations makes a legal charge impossible, but the ‘court of public opinion’ can decide for itself.
And it will…
Now can you see why Doug Ford’s insistence to turning back the Ontario Sex Education clock to 1998 is so dangerous? We don’t want our teenagers thinking that sex is only vaginal intercourse. That kind of thinking opens them up for STD’s in other orifices.
It makes life hard to swallow…
