Don't be persuaded, this is unacceptable behavior.Kevin Jackson, Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump have many things in common. But, the most disgustingly profound thing is their recent treatment of survivors. It takes immense strength to stand in front of anyone, let alone the world and tell your story. Then to be laughed at and called “skanks” by men in powe...

This is no surprise as sex brings back a primal instinct that mostly all humans have. Except for those who don’t like sex, which is cool...
