TBD With LDT, Ep. 30: “I Believe Women”

RELEASE DATE: October 3, 2018

TW: This week’s episode centers on the current national narrative surrounding Ford/Kavanaugh. This was not an easy podcast to record, and I understand if it’s not easy to listen to. I’m worn down and worn out by the crushing weight of anguish and anger, I’m tired of saying the same things year after year, I’m broken apart because every time a high profile abuse/assault case has come to light, more and more people I know are stepping forward with their own stories — men and women — so many, that it almost feels as though I may not know ANY woman who has not experienced sexual abuse/assault. And do you know what would (will) be even more heart-breaking than learning that all the women I know have been abused/assaulted? When I learn that, I will not be surprised for even one moment. Not because I don’t know good men, or because I hate men, but because of the history of our world, our justice system, and our legacy of victim-blaming, shaming, and demeaning. We need to do better. We need to raise ourselves and our children better. We need to do some soul searching as a species.
