In the last few weeks, with the Brett Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court taking all the air out of the national debate on gender equality, the “Me Too” movement took a hit. A massive hit. The accuser, the woman, Christine Blasey Ford, said the judge sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers with absolutely no evidence that the incident ever happened. In fact, the witnesses she names have all claimed under oath that they have no memory of the incident.
For those who apply objective logic to decision making, this casts doubt over the woman’s story, as it should. Women lie. It’s a known reality. However, that being the case, “Me Too” is now in doubt. That is a real problem for people like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi who depend on identity politics to maintain their grip on power. A discredited woman takes the wind out of the sails. So, this week, she attempted to shore up her position by claiming that a woman is always to be believed.
“The default of truth is to the woman,” Pelosi said. “But that doesn’t mean we don’t believe in due process. We believe in due process. That is our strength.” Then, she added, “If Judge Kavanaugh has nothing to hide, he should not fear an FBI investigation.”
It looks like the San Francisco nut missed the fact that the judge has undergone SEVEN FBI investigations, including one on this specific charge, and the Bureau has found that he’s done nothing wrong.
But it does beg the question, why is the default always with the woman? What magic comes with ovaries and a uterus that suddenly makes females all truthful all the time? From experience, women are vicious and take no prisoners when their interests are on the line. That does not mean that they always tell the truth. A practiced liar is a practiced liar. That has been demonstrated throughout history and in literature and art. Nancy Pelosi saying that the woman should be believed by “default” is ignoring base humanity.
Women should not be trusted by default any more than men should.
