    • @ElSmusso <--- "Every professional screen reading actor and actress at cnn all know me personally and they all know how especially naive, gullible and dumbdowned I am. Even though they have no idea that I even exist, mainly because I'm a loser, I know that they want nothing but the very best for me. CNN protects their cattle like no other and that's why I love them so much. I want cnn to be my President so bad. #CNNFORPRESIDENT please."

      Huh? Liar.

    • “Hey look at me, I’m a 22yr old alcoholic female, goes to frat parties and gets blackout wasted, doesn’t remember a thing and writes a book about being a victim”…. Be better everyone, be better….

    • @Tim B So, a 22 year old female who parties and gets drunk deserves to be raped…got it. 👍🏽

    • @CG H
      No, a 22yr old girl with a drinking problem who goes to frat parties and gets blackout drunk and has no self control and gets attacked should be writing a book about the dangers of being a blackout drunkard, no acting like some innocent victim.

  5. i thought the questions were thoughtful and respectful also 🙌🏻

  6. “I am not brock Turner’s victim. I am not his anything. I dont belong to him.” <--- whoa. Powerful. It just got a little dusty in here

      How about killerys victom ? Caty obrian who was killerys sex slave ? Anything ?
      Liberals are commuinist .
      Thier agenda , Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
      13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
      14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
      15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
      16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
      17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
      18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
      19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
      20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
      21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
      22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
      23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
      24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
      25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
      26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
      27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
      28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
      29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
      30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
      31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

      @Tim B Hope you get help for being a prick.

    • Jonathan Hiatt | November 29, 2019 at 6:45 PM | Reply

      @Tim B did you read that one Brightfart?

    • @Tim B Having too much to drink in one night doesn’t make you an alcoholic, and things aren’t equal because had it been a guy that was passed out, no woman would have come along and raped him. He’d actually have more chance of being raped by a man than a woman. So, no we don’t need men’s help, we just need men to stop sexually offending.

    • @Amy G
      I agree people shouldn’t sexually offend, and people shouldn’t get blackout drunk in public in case a sexual offender is around.

    • @Tim B It absolutely was irresponsible for her to get that inebriated for many reasons, one being that there are always sex offenders around.

  9. The only man afraid of a strong woman is a weak, insecure man! Women, you are worth more than the person who raises their hand! They are truly mad at themselves, taking it out on you… and that is unacceptable!

  10. I wish I had had the strength to speak out like this brave lady when I was much younger. Such an inspirational woman!

      @J Hitchcock About three years ago I was sitting at a picnic table with five other women, all friends made in my neighborhood in just the year or two prior. We were six women ranging in age from 23 to 49, all from different parts of the country, covering pretty much every socioeconomic group, black, white, Asian and Hispanic, range of careers from bar tending to academia to finance, and one friend had a newly swollen and bruised face so we were talking about what happened with her that weekend. She was beat up by an ex and in self defense in her own home grabbed a knife that she never used on him, but was still holding when the police arrived. SHE was arrested and eventually had to appear in court and was given probation even though SHE was the one assaulted in her own home. Well that conversation revealed that 100% of the women at the table had rape stories. Some multiple. One by a police officer when she was 16. It’s important we talk about it to each other and to the men we know – even if it takes us years to discuss it and we know we’ll never get legal justice. Peace to you ❤️

      The liberals made the metoo movement a joke when they tried to use it as a smear campaign to keep kavanaugh from getting confirmed.

    • @Janet Airlines please look up the word “liberal”? Also, the only reason Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court is that he said that Trump couldn’t be indicted while president. He is one of several unqualified people whom Trump has appointed because they sucked up to him.

    • Janet Airlines | November 29, 2019 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      @J Hitchcock I wonder if the court had to replace their doors after the crazy liberals literally clawed their fingernails into it after his confirmation🤔

    • @Janet Airlines again, look up “liberal” you are insulting half of the Republican Party. smh

    “Only when the book was completed, was I at peace with the idea that I could emerge, that I could be seen as a writer not only his victim” – That’s powerful stuff.

    • She’s made a good profit from her book in which she remembered nothing.

    • Jessica Wilson | November 29, 2019 at 3:57 PM | Reply

      @Doug H remembering nothing from the night of the assault and knowing how you felt after are two very different things. Being drunk is not an invitation to being raped

  12. Sad what happened to this woman. Wow.

  13. What a strong, powerful, amazing, resilient young woman. I hope the future holds great things for her.

  14. Brock Turner Rapist. Hope Google algorithms Carries that forever.

  15. she’s amazing

    Disappointed that CNN failed to use Convicted Rapist Brock Turner’s full name.

    • Not convicted of rape, and in fact the rape charges were dropped. She apparently agreed to the makeup session but she passed out. Thats his crime,

  17. 3 months in jail, white privilege at his best…

  18. That judge should be sentenced.

  19. “Talking with Strangers” by Malcom Gladwell – Is a nice read about near-irreparable consequences that come from miscommunication, and speaks of her(their) situation as an example.
