Sex Crime Trials Does Not Make You A Criminal

OKABE & HAUSHALTER Dec 20, 2018 Sex Crimes

Modern-day #MeToo movement has really pushed the American people to reconsider what it means to be harassed and genders treat each other. Some think the movement is a blessing as it is bringing to light the true harassment most women deal with on a daily basis. Some think that the movement has gone too far.

When Judge Kavanaugh was at his hearing that was to discuss the situation, it was not a criminal trial, we were able to see insight into a messy story between the accuser and the accused. In his speech to government officials and the public, Judge Kavanaugh claimed that he drank beers along with others who drank beers when he was a youth. This is a very common behavior and should not seem out of the ordinary, even though it may be heavily frowned upon. He stated that “ If every American who drinks beer or every American who drank beer in high school is suddenly presumed guilty of sexual assault, will be an ugly, new place in this country.” What Kavanaugh is commenting on, whether intentional or not, is the pervasive nature of sexual misconduct alongside partying habits. The #MeToo movement is accelerating conversations around what does and does not constitute sexual harassment. Judge Kavanaugh’s words prove to us that alcohol intoxication and sexual misconduct do go hand in hand, but that does not make it acceptable or excusable. However, it does make for a messy story.
