61 Brilliant Tweets About Kavanaugh

In trying really hard to think positively about this whole Kavanaugh shitshow, I will say that a few good things have/will come from this massive injustice: 1. I am confident that Dr. Ford (and countless other sexual assault survivors) will be avenged come November 6th, and 2. Twitter has been absolutely poppin’ with some incredible content reacting to Kavanaugh’s nomination and appointment.

So here’s a collection of tweets—some hilarious, some haunting—to help you gear up for election day:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One last important post that I’ll direct you to is Halsey’s “A Story Like Mine,” a poem/speech she gave during the Women’s March in New York City earlier this year. Although this work preceded all the Kavanaugh allegations by several months, the message is still painfully relevant in the wake of them.

She closes by saying the following:

“We are not free until all of us are free

So love your neighbor, please treat her kindly

Ask her her story and then shut up and listen

Black, Asian, poor, wealthy, trans, cis, Muslim, Christian

Listen, listen and then yell at the top of your lungs

Be a voice for all those who have prisoner tongues

For the people who had to grow up way too young

There is work to be done

There are songs to be sung

Lord knows there’s a war to be won”

And there is. This is a difficult and dangerous time in our country for so, so many people. But it’s not enough to dismiss or disregard sexual harassment and assault by saying “boys will be boys.” It’s not enough to tell women that their outfits and actions make them more or less assaultable. It’s not enough to suggest that they should cover their drinks, run without their headphones, and walk with their keys between their fingers. What we are doing is not enough, and this fight does not start or end with Kavanaugh.

We can do better. We can be better.
