I think it is true that 'the higher the office being pursued, the more importance the victim places on their story and the more courage they feel to bring their story forward.'
Do not project today's climate far into the future. This is 'send a message' and 'make a few examples' time. Men in general will behave some amount more respectful toward women and parents will, in general, make a larger effort to make sure their boys treat women and their rights with respect. That said, should BK not be confirmed, it isn't a loss to all boys everywhere.
As far as my opinion goes. I do not think the allegations are false. And the smart people reporting on the current Justice nominee say they think he will be confirmed. As far as our country goes, I think we could nominate someone else without such claims against them. Concisely, I think, given the allegations, someone else should be selected to sit on the highest court in the country. I do not want false allegations to harm anyone.
