‘Time’ 100 list offensively honors both Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh

TwitterFacebook

The annual Time 100 list debuted Wednesday with a shocking juxtaposition: The magazine recognized Christine Blasey Ford as an “icon” but also honored Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the man she said drunkenly assaulted her during high school, as a “leader.”

They absolutely should not.

Catland Books, an occult bookshop and community space in Brooklyn, has organized not one but two mass hexes on Kavanaugh. According to an Eventbrite page for the hex, the organizers say they plan to target the newly appointed justice as well as “all rapists and the patriarchy which…
