Brett Kavanaugh Claims Past Virginity As Defense Against Sexual Assault Claims
The Supreme Court nominee said he can’t have been a predator because he was a virgin in high school.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s latest defense against two sexual misconduct allegations is that he was a virgin in high school and for “many years thereafter.”

Kavanaugh claimed he couldn’t have sexually assaulted anyone as a teenager because of his virginity in a Fox News interview on Monday. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who goes by Christine Blasey professionally, has accused him of attacking her at a party more than 35 years ago when they were both in high school.

<snip>

“We’re talking about allegations of sexual assault. I have never sexually assaulted anyone,” the nominee told Fox News. “I did not have sexual intercourse, or anything close to sexual intercourse, in high school or many years thereafter.”


<snip>

It should go without saying that virginity does not mean a person is not capable of drunkenly groping another person against her will.

Though frankly, claims of virginity from religious people are almost always BS, in my opinion.

2. That's irrelevant.

The question at hand is whether he did what the two women say he did.

Another question might be whether he lied in a previous confirmation hearing.

8. There are new allegations of gang rape (Avenatti).

I assume the allegations relate to Kavanaugh and not just to some guys at Kav's school. But I don't know for sure.

Rachel read Avenatti's letter on her show.

All I know about gang rape is that Mark Judge's ex-wife, or gf?, says that he told her that they'd gotten a girl drunk once so that a group of them could have sex with her.

6. If he didn't have sexual intercourse

it's because Christine Blaisy (and others?) fought him off. It still doesn't invalidate the claims against him.

17. Right? Same here.

He is such a dishonet creep. He knows damn well sexual assault does not require penetration with a penis. This is an intentially misleading argument to make. It certainly is not something an innocent man would claim. An innocent person would ask for a lie detector test (like Dr. Ford did) and an FBI investigation (like Dr. Ford asked for).

I know that many--most?--of us have experienced this thought/feeling.

We are in the grip of an existential crisis, awash in absurdity. The wellsprings of this are so vast and deep that it's near impossible to distill meaning. With each passing hour we plunge more deeply into a strange chasm of alienation.
