And Republicans are standing by him

Need more proof that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a human piece of garbage? He may have sexually assaulted a girl when he was in high school, according to a report from the New York Times. The alleged victim sent a letter to Capitol Hill detailing the event, which has not been released to the public. The Times has received details of the alleged assault from three people familiar with the contents of the letter.

The letter reportedly states that when Kavanaugh was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School, he and another male student forced a teenage girl into a bedroom. The boys had been drinking at a social gathering and turned up the music in the room so that no one could hear what was happening. The Times writes that “the door was locked, and she was thrown on the bed, the letter says. Mr. Kavanaugh then got on top of the teenager and put a hand over her mouth.” The alleged victim says that she was able to escape before anything else happened.

Kavanaugh denied the allegations, saying in a statement to the New Yorker, “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.” Republicans are standing by him, and the White House has basically accused Democrats of playing dirty by releasing the information in order to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation—even though, as of this article's posting, his confirmation is still moving ahead. The FBI has not opened a criminal investigation into the alleged assault, although it has added the letter to Kavanaugh's file.

We are, unfortunately, not surprised that Republicans are standing by a man accused of sexual assault, seeing as how the president they elected has been accused of sexual assault so many times that there is a Wikipedia page documenting the various allegations. Anything to push their agenda, right?

She takes defending her country seriously

Start your morning off right by watching Michelle Obama whip a ball straight at Harry Styles', well, balls. During a game of dodgeball between the former FLOTUS and The Late Late Show host James Corden and their respective teams, the throw that decided the entire match is one you'll want to watch over and over (and over) again.

When Obama challenged Corden to a U.S.A. versus U.K. match, using dodgeball to determine which home country was better, I already knew she was going to win. She's Michelle Obama. It was just as easy for her to convince everyone she'd win before grabbing a ball as it was to select her all-star crew; Obama shares in the clip, "You would not believe how easy it was to get people to do this. All I had to say was, you're gonna throw a ball at James Corden." I'd say yes! Her six-person team is made up of actors Allison Janney, Mila Kunis, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Waithe, and Kate Hudson.

Corden had a less easy time grabbing a team (he only has five people, including himself), made up of Harry Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, Samwell Tarly John Bradley, and Reggie Watts. Styles suggests no one would have actually joined up with Corden had the late-night host not stalked them, joking that he called, texted, and even showed up at "your house, your work, your hairdresser, your pilates class, and your shower."

Even without the magic of jump cuts, the game flies by in a flash. Corden's entire team is wiped out in no time, leaving Styles alone to fight for his home country. The former One Direction band member had no chance once Obama had him in her crosshairs, and with one swift toss directed at Styles' crotch, Corden's team's fate is sealed forever.

Watch the full video below, and if you're just here for that winning blow, skip ahead to 6:46.

Get to know Transthetics, a truly transformative company that didn't set out to change the world

Alex is not your usual entrepreneur. The plain-spoken, self-described "...boring heterosexual guy..." just wants to have vanilla sex and relationships with women. He started Transthetics, penile prosthetics for transmasculine people, to serve this purpose. While Alex may be working on things that are transformative for individuals, he didn't start his company to "change the world" or be internationally recognized in the way many CEOs strive for. He doesn't even choose to use his surname in any product advertising, press, or fundraising materials. That might not seem so unusual, considering we live in a world that is so hostile to deviation from the gender norms—but we also live in a world of "rock star"-led start-ups, and anonymity is quite unusual there.
