Dr. Christine Ford, Brett Kavanaugh, and the automatic outgroup derogation of men

Why do you believe/disbelieve Christine Ford or Brett Kavanaugh?

Half of the people in the United States now know that Brett Kavanaugh is guilty of being in a teenaged country club rape gang. If you don’t believe his accusers, you’re probably one of those angry men who believe that “rule of law”, “due process” and “presumption of innocence” are more important than taking women’s allegations of sexual misconduct seriously.

Or, perhaps you’re a pro-life Republican, willfully ignoring the seriousness of the allegations, because you don’t think women should get to have control over their own bodies. Maybe you think this was a long time ago and it’s not that big of a deal.

Last year, I laid out a case that all men are flawed, we’re doomed and only women can save the day.

This may be a tough idea to sell to AVFM readers, but honestly, AVFM was the only platform to agree to publish the series. I believe by the end I persuaded greater than 0% of the readers to my way of thinking.

In a new series, “Men, as a group, are idiots, they could learn a lot from women, and they’d better ask for help,” I’ll explain how it is that half the population knows that Brett Kavanaugh was part of a serial rape gang, even without an FBI investigation. I believe I will also persuade you that, in fact, men as a group, are idiots, they could learn a lot from women, and they’d better ask for help, immediately.

Now, many of you are likely to argue that there’s no way to corroborate Dr. Ford’s allegations of activities from a teen pool party 35 years ago and you’d like to argue how the circumstances of one man can’t possibly be every other man’s fault. My response to this would be that you are bringing a knife to a gunfight. Worse, if you’re relying on facts to make your case about men’s issues, confirmation bias will ensure that you’re pointing the knife at your own argument.

Thirty-five years ago, Brett Kavanaugh, like Brock Turner, was a wealthy teenager, a boy of significant privilege, socialized among only other boys. This week, he was “credibly accused” of sexual assault by Fullerton, California Psychology Professor, Dr. Christine Ford and others, while he ran wild with a drunken rape gang.

Women who have been victims of sexual assault believe Professor Ford because the experiences she’s describing are so very similar to their own. Unless you’ve experienced what Scott Adams has experienced, you can’t really understand what that is like.

Tucker Carlson, Scott Adams, and greater than 0% of AVFM readers have a shared experience which we’ll be exploring in great detail over several articles.  If you’re familiar with Scott Adams and you’ve read my previous articles, you’re likely thinking this is going to be quite a trip.

If you’re not already a fan of Scott Adams, I’d recommend that you subscribe to his podcast or buy his books. Particularly his books on persuasion, he is an expert in that field, and his work is historic, right on par with that of the groundbreaking persuasion researcher, Dr. Robert Cialdini.

We are experiencing a time of perceptual stress, and if human beings are going to survive, men are going to have to learn to take a joke, which means men would do well to learn how jokes work.

Fortunately for all of us, Scott Adams is quite an expert at jokes; he’s written over 15 thousand of them.

Editors note: There is no physical evidence that Judge Kavanaugh was involved in sexual misconduct.

Authors note: This does not matter.
