Who knew the Comey hearings would sound this familiar to women across the nation?
As Comey took to the stand, viewers took to the internet to share their two cents about what was going on during #ComeyDay.
Viewers thought Comey’s testimony sounded strikingly similar to something women face too often: sexual harassment. Trump’s intimidation and threats resonated with women across the nation.
But, they weren’t the only ones noticing the similarities. We’re unsure why it took a nationally-broadcasted hearing to draw attention to the inferior position women are placed in on a daily basis, but we’re thankful these tweeters are calling it out.
We’re hoping the awareness of sexual assault is growing, and that these realizations aren’t only occurring because a man was now the victim (but we wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case).
Funny how Comey’s inferior position is finally noteworthy now that it’s a man.
Just because someone got fired doesn’t invalidate what happened before they were fired.
How come no one asked what Comey was wearing when he felt so threatened by Trump?
Hopefully Comey is at least one man who now knows how threatened women can feel in the workplace.
Oh, how the tables have turned.
Blaming the victim instead of the predator? I think we’ve heard that before.
We’re wishing this narrative wasn’t so familiar to us women.
Unfortunately, it took some gender role reversal to see how paralyzing intimidation can be, but if that’s what it takes to draw attention to the issue that is sexual assault, we are glad people are finally seeing what women are facing.
