Harvard Students Want Kavanaugh Banned From Public Life, Because of #MeToo

Day by day, the #MeToo movement’s credibility is getting chipped away.

The allegation being peddled by porn actress Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is one obvious example.

Accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of spiking girls’ drinks and running a gang-rape ring at parties in high school isn’t only not credible, it’s offensive and undermines the more plausible allegations brought by Christine Blasey Ford. (Although, according to the memorandum prepared for Republican senators by Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, Ford handled the job of undermining her credibility herself.)

Tragically, the same thing is happening on a smaller, less obvious scale elsewhere. According to The Harvard Crimson, “several students filed formal complaints alleging Kavanaugh’s presence in Cambridge would violate Harvard’s policy prohibiting sexual and gender-based harassment.”

By using Title IX, the federal law that outlaws gender-based discrimination in schools, the students contend that if Kavanaugh were to return to campus, sexual assault survivors wouldn’t feel safe.

The complaints were brought by Jacqueline L. Kellogg and Julia B. Wiener, both in the graduating class of 2019. They argued Kavanaugh’s “presence on campus would create a ‘hostile environment’ as defined in Harvard guidelines related to sexual harassment.”
