What sparked her to go public so many years later, McEwen told Fletcher, was a strange call Thomas’s wife, Ginni, made to Hill on October 9, 2010. On a message left on Hill’s answering machine, Ginni asked Hill to apologize for her testimony back in 1991. “The Clarence I know was certainly capable not only of doing the things that Anita Hill said he did, but it would be totally consistent with the way he lived his personal life then,” said McEwen, who by then was also writing a bodice-ripping memoir, D.C. Unmasked and Undressed. According to the Post, Thomas would also tell McEwen “about women he encountered at work and what he’d said to them. He was partial to women with large breasts, she said.” Once, McEwen recalled, Thomas was so “impressed” by a colleague’s chest that he asked her bra size, a question that’s difficult to interpret as anything but the clearest kind of sexual harassment. That information could also … [Read more...] about Do You Believe Her Now?
“It started very casually, asking for a recommendation of places to eat/see,” she continued. “I gave him a few and told him to enjoy the city. He began to make comments about my body. He told me that I was just type he likes, he commented on my curves. I did not invite any of this. Nor had I ever given any indication that I was interested in him. In fact, he himself brought up the fact that he had a girlfriend. Which he then followed by telling me if we met up he wouldn’t be able to stop himself from fucking me. I ended the conversation.

I have been on the receiving end of the kind of vitriol any 90s feminist, or woman on the internet, has faced but that was the first time I felt that I might be unsafe off-line.” … [Read more...] about How a Sexual-Assault Accusation Against a ‘Feminist’ Film Blogger Shook Up the Indie Film World
Brazile stressed that “I don’t want this to go down the path that we’re putting a black woman on the ticket because Joe Biden has problems. There’s no evidence right now because of his remarks -- that he quickly apologized for – that he has a problem. If that was the case, then I’d say that Donald Trump needs a black woman on the ticket because of all of his problems.” … [Read more...] about African-American activists escalating efforts to persuade Biden not to pick Klobuchar for VP
When I asked him why he had made so many enemies among gay men, he quipped: “Well, the same could be said about you.” “Well, I don’t think people know what to do with me,” I answered. “That’s like me,” he replied. “They think we only have one schtick.” And, yes, Larry didn’t just have anger; he also had compassion, and grace, and a vision of homosexuality that was noble, honorable, esteemed, erudite, respectable. Like me, he was convinced, for example, that Abraham Lincoln was gay, and that Lincoln needed to be revered in gay history alongside Whitman and Newman and Wilde and Auden. Another email came in the wake of some comments I made on the subject: “Thanks for the gay Abe Lincoln plug. But he did not sleep with Captain David V. Derickson, of Company K, 150th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, Second Regiment, Bucktail Brigade in the White House when Mary was there. Only when she was away!” (If … [Read more...] about Larry Kramer’s Secret
