The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh seemed all but certain a few days ago, until a woman named Christine Blasey Ford came forward accusing him of sexual assault when they were in high school. The alleged crime having taken place decades ago has prompted many to ask: Why did she wait so long?
I can tell you why.
In a word ... Fear
In my freshman year of college, I was the victim of something quite similar, on my 18th birthday. I understand why Dr. Ford remained silent. She was afraid. Afraid that no one would believe her after all, she had been drinking. Fear if it went to court, her sex life would be revealed. Fear she would be judged. Fear her name would be dragged through the mud. And shes not alone.
Rape and sexual assault are the most underreported crimes in our nation. Worldwide, one in three women experience some sexual violence in their lifetime, according to the World Health Organization. Yet it is fear that keeps them from coming forward.
Even in light of the #MeToo movement, only a handful will come forward like Dr. Ford. For the rest, the silence continues.
I am guilty of that silence.
...he is a successful professional in [his]chosen career, it sickened me. I wanted to tell someone. But I didnt. Fear prevented me from picking up the phone.

Here is another case of an accusation of sexual assault where the woman will not try to out the "perp"
She is hurting all assaulted women by hiding this accusation. Or maybe she made it up.
“September 20, 2018”
Because she didn't find that story profitable until now.
RE: Why did Christine Blasey Ford wait so long? I’ll tell you ...
She is a Democrat who, like the rest of them DO NOT WANT the Supreme Court tilting conservative for the next few decades.
How complicated is that?
Her parents and siblings are mixed up in this too and she is protecting them. Why havent we heard anything about her parents.
The reason for her waiting so long is irrelevant. She still waited too long - beyond the statute of limitations, beyond the ability to reconstruct the alleged crime or gather any reliable evidence. For this reason, it must be dismissed.
I think a more likely scenario is that her parents and siblings wrote her off a long time ago.
A bunch of people signed a public "friends and family" support letter for Betty Ford a few days ago. What immediately raised a red flag was that the only family members to sign it were from her HUSBAND's family, not hers.
Because her dad is/was CIA, Big Time?
This whole thing really cheapened the issue of sexual assault for me.
On the one hand, I do maintain some level of sympathy for people who actually have this happen. But the bar is raised (for me) for people who claim to be a victim. You get your sympathy after you show me evidence, and a timely police report. Your claim is not recognized (by me) until you go at least 51% of the way to PROVING that it happened.
The Bimbo Ford? She’s just a liar.
The democrats have the best of both worlds.
If she remembers it was Kavanaugh, she is courageous. If the doesn't remember anything else or remembers it incorrectly, she is a traumatized woman.
We all need to remember the hyperventilating throngs of zombies at various dem functions, and realize that virtually all of those crazies would gladly commit perjury for the party.
I can accept why Ford would wait 36 years.
Why did DiFi wait a month?
If someone else wants to cherry-pick aspects of this to focus on and apply their guess on intentions, so will I. DiFi’s actions are the most important aspect of this and it’s nothing but sleazy political games from DiFi that got us here.
Maybe she doesn't "remember" being "groped" by them.
It's perfectly understandable that her parents never tried to get into her pants.
But hey, I wasn't at that party.
We will know if this is real or political if she calls the police to press charges when the vote is over.
You are correct and I was wondering about this. It was her sister-in-law who spoke in support of her, not her sister.
There are statutes of limitations for good reason.
There are many. many. many factors that can cloud an incident after 36 years.
The question is not why this shrew waited so long, the question is multi-part:
1. Why is she coming out now?
2. Why does she think her allegation of 17-year old behavior carries over to middle age?
3. Why does she think Judge Kavanaugh is unqualified?
4. Why is she represented by lawyers for HRC connected to Soros? Does she not see how partisan that is?
Such questioning can go on and on resulting in a waste of time because a 35-year background check on this Judge reported him to be an exemplary character with a wonderful family to show for it as well as dozens upon dozens of character witnesses attesting to his good character going back to his teen years.
Judge Kavanaugh is well-qualified to be Justice Kavanaugh.
Christine Blasely Ford is a useful idiot for the Clinton-Soros network of Cultural Marxists.
