The allegations against Senate candidate Roy Moore are disgusting; but frankly the sheer number of Republicans defending him is downright terrifying.
To put it in perspective for these lunatics, women throughout the weekend posted throwback photos on Twitter tagged with the #MeAt14 hashtag to let them know exactly how young this girl was.
#MeAt14 I worshipped my brother. I loved my dog, Pucci. I loved OMD. I had Big hair. I was happy. I was innocent.
I was eating a lot of chocolate chip cookie dough and learning to do the “hustle” and not worrying about a 32 year old man trying to hustle me. #MeAt14 pic.twitter.com/xp7UPiiZdq

After hearing all the Moore defenders, I had to recalibrate myself and find a pic of me at 14. Here it is. For the record, I had ZERO idea what I was doing in any romantic or dating capacity (and fortunately was not allowed to date). pic.twitter.com/PGGC3QykRp

This is me at 14. I was on the gymnastics team and sang in the choir. I was not dating a 32 year old man. Who were you at 14? Tweet a pic, tell us who you were and pic to the top of your page #MeAt14 #NoMoore pic.twitter.com/HPVzMgaD8h

#MeAt14 showing off the sand turtle I made at the beach. A man in his 30s should know better, because this is a child. I tied off my braids with scrunchies, ffs. pic.twitter.com/kkiFyRpSyJ

#MeAt14 shouldn’t have been allowed to pick out my own clothes, definitely not old enough to consent to being groped by a 30-something year old man. pic.twitter.com/9WFaXhFGEm

#MeAt14 goofing around with my friends in a photo booth at the mall. I had never even kissed a boy at this point in my life
This is me at 14. I wasn├óΓé¼Γäót dating a 32 year old man. I was in marching band and spent a lot of time with family (as seen here). #MeAt14 #NoMoore pic.twitter.com/Q047BDjwb4

#MeAt14 Here’s a diary entry about the time I started crying at a dance because I was scared of dancing with boys.
I was propositioned by adult men nonstop
I was sexualized by modeling execs from age 5-24
I was raped by a stranger at 14, a virgin…my canines weren’t fully in yet
I was a 4.2 GPA honor student w/a penchant for Oscar Wilde & Sylvia Plath
I don’t know what *childhood* is pic.twitter.com/nLBSCIK7X6

This is me at 14, a shy and innocent bookworm. No way is a 14-yr-old developmentally prepared to date a 32-yr-old man. #MeAt14 #NoMoore pic.twitter.com/e5pYBcMyx3

Standing outside Ruby Tuesday before walking to the mall to hang out in the food court. That’s a wild night for a group of adolescents. Talking to a seventeen year old would have been scandalous at this age. Talking to a 32 year old wasn’t even an option. #MeAt14 pic.twitter.com/hEiqJPzceu

This girl was a dreamer w/ambitions of becoming a marine biologist & someday meeting David Bowie.
This girl became a broken mess after a 46yr old molested her for 2 years. There are reasons for laws re age of consent. Thankfully my State’s Attorney thought so as well. #MeAt14 pic.twitter.com/cmNgpeLDmL

Oh, by the way, the hashtag was started by a Republican from North Carolina:
Protecting young girls isn’t a political issue, it’s a moral one!
