“The threats have been unending”

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is still unable to move back to her home, due to the multitude of death threats that she has received since bringing forward her allegations against newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In an interview on MSNBC, one of Dr. Ford’s lawyers, Debra Katz, said that Ford would not be able to return home for a while. “They are not living at home,” she said of Dr. Ford and her family. “It’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending. It’s deplorable. It’s been very frightening.”


Katz also described how Dr. Ford likely felt after being openly mocked by Donald Trump during a Mississippi rally. “I think she was as horrified as the rest of us were. It’s terrible, it’s disrespectful, it’s horrible,” Katz said. One of Dr. Ford's attorneys Lisa Banks, who was also interviewed, added, “She was upset by it, as any women would be who is the victim of sexual assault, who is mocked and belittled by anyone, never mind the president of the United States.”

After being forced to relive the worst moment of her life on a public stage under intense scrutiny, and being subjected to death threats, her alleged accuser now occupies the highest position offered to a judge in the United States. On Saturday, Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, after a short and incredibly limited FBI investigation into the multiple allegations of sexual assault lodged against him. Many of his former classmates have also come forward with claims that would discredit some of Kavanaugh's testimony claims but were not contacted by the FBI. Nonetheless, Republicans thought the results were solid enough to proceed with a vote. 

While Dr. Ford’s life has been irrevocably changed on account of her brave testimony, Kavanaugh is preparing for his first case. The news is truly hard to watch right now.

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.
