This woman bravely shared her own sexual assault experience in an effort to force senators to take the Kavanaugh allegations seriously.
n July, then-anonymous professor and research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape via a letter to her representative. And now, two more women have come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh.
Yesterday, 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez claimed that Kavanaugh stuck his penis in her face while she was inebriated during a dorm room party at Yale University when they were both freshmen. She recalled she was lying on the floor, attempting to push the body part away from her as boys around her laughed and told her to “kiss it.”
“Brett was laughing,” she recalled. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants. Somebody yelled down the hall, ‘Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.’ It was his full name. I don’t think it was just ‘Brett.’ And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there.”
The New Yorker notes that during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh swore under oath that he had not committed any sexual harassment or assault as a legal adult (he would have been 18 years old at the time of this incident). While at Yale, Kavanaugh was also reportedly a member of an all-male secret society nicknamed “Tit and Clit.”
