Kavanaugh is Newly Accused of Sexual Misconduct and Lying to Congress. But Who Cares?

He cried, pouted, and literally had a tantrum before the United States Senate. Then they gave him supreme power over hundreds of millions of lives. For the rest of his life.

New Allegations of Sexual Misconduct 

Published in a NY times essay, new details have renewed calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment. But who cares about that? He allegedly stuck his penis in the face of someone who doesn’t remember it happening. Who cares?

I suppose I’m giving my insecurity about aging an uppercut to the scrotum by laying it all out on the internet, so here we go!

Over the past 20 years of being a ‘grown up’, I’ve encountered my share of trials and tribulations that have helped me to realise what I find meaningful (and what I should focus on) for the remainder of my life.
