Donald Trump Questions Brett Kavanaugh's Accuser Sparking #WhyIDidntReport

Alyssa Milano Blasts Donald Trump For Sexual Assault Tweet: ‘Listen The F*** Up’

Alyssa Milano Blasts Donald Trump For Sexual Assault Tweet: ‘Listen The F*** Up’

The top trending hashtag, "WhyIDidntReport", sparked these stories. The reason why: Trump claimed that women who are sexually assaulted should report it right away.

Seven out of ten victims do not report rapes and other assaults to police.

"We know that allegations of sexual assault are one of the most unreported crimes that exist".

On Friday, Trump abandoned any restraint over Blasey Ford as he demanded that the Republican-controlled Senate get on with confirming Kavanaugh - and so tilt the highest United States judicial body further to the right before November's crucial mid-term elections.

Promptly, and bravely, responding to the president's unwarranted and unsubstantiated comment, Milano chose to set the president straight in a searing and honest tweet, in which she revealed she has also been a victim of sexual assault.

"I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents", Trump tweeted on Friday.

Oh, and if you're wondering if Trump ever takes the side of women in these cases, he sure does - provided the men being accused are Democrats.

The Women's March organisers and other groups coordinated protesters to disrupt Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings, which began in early September.

"Now, we are seeing our worst nightmares realized when we see the disbelief, pushback, hate, and death threats Ford is receiving just because she had the courage to speak up", she continued. It *is* unusual that a person who seems to be so well-liked by the many women colleagues he's had in his career would be presumed guilty of being a boorish sex criminal.

Patti Davis, the daughter of former US President Ronald Reagan, revealed her own rape in an op-ed for The Washington Post, explaining why she remembers so few details of an incident more than 30 years ago.

A phrase of solidarity through empathy first used by activist Tarana Burke in 2006, #MeToo spread virally as a hashtag when a flood of allegations against Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein forced a global reckoning on sexual misconduct in the workplace and beyond. Democrats also said they wanted more time for the FBI to investigate, and more witnesses to come forward, hoping to avoid a "he said, she said" moment. "#MeToo", Milano wrote, adding the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport in a reply.

Many celebrities also reacted to this matter and shared their personal experiences with the world. And I think everything's gonna be just fine.

"I want to hear her". "They told me what I described was a rape".

Sexual assault is an act in which a person sexually touches another person without that person's consent, or coerces or physically forces a person to engage in a sexual act against their will.

And even after processing what happened, survivors said, it is hard to tell friends and family members. But her memory of the attack itself is vivid and detailed.
