Austin Glass Here’s a more detailed explanation of what I was trying to say about enabling rapists and harassers. It’s not all about stopping overt actions — a lot of it is much more subtle. And neither Lorelei nor I were accusing you of doing anything, except perhaps not wishing to acknowledge just how serious an issue this actually is. In fact, it’s undoubtedly way worse than we have the ability to track because so many people don’t come forward due to the further traumatization that often takes place when they do.

I read a well written article the other day written by a man who was raped as a 22 year old in the Navy. He’s never spoken about it until now for all the same reasons that someone like Christine Ford hadn’t.

Anyway, perhaps I’m a fool for re-engaging but for the sake of your daughter and a better society for all, I’m trying one last time.
