    I Choose to believe Christine Blasey Ford

    As a bi-racial woman, I have faced many challenges in my life. As a woman in general I have dealt with the assumption that I am ignorant, that I want to be touched, and I enjoy attention.

    Frankly, at times I feel unsafe in my body and skin. I am harassed because of my physical appearance, whether I look like a goddess or like a devil does not matter. Dr. Ford is a brave woman and she will be remembered as such regardless of how people attempt to smear her reputation. Is her story true?

    It is a skeptical situation but I choose to believe her. I cannot relate to being involved with a man of political power, but I know what it’s like for a man to strip away my freedom to choose. I truly hope one day there can be a solution to this vicious cycle that continues to affect millions of people.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
