President Trump has once again sparked controversy with poorly worded and insensitive Tweets. This time, he took to the social media network to cast doubt on the credibility of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has made allegations of sexual abuse against Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

In a series of tweets regarding this controversial topic, he suggested that if Dr. Ford's allegations were 'as bad as she says,' she would have reported it at the time, back in the 1980s. This simplistic take on a sexual assault experience that is deeply painful, personal, and ridden with feelings of fear, shame, and guilt, is sadly typical of a President who is chronically lacking in both empathy and self-awareness.

In response to President Trump's dismissive attitude to the struggles of a rape victim, the hashtag #WhyIDidn'tReport has been spreading like wildfire on Twitter. People are opening up about their experiences in raw and emotional ways, and it makes for heartbreaking, yet important reading. The response proves that there is no set procedure for reporting sexual abuse, the complex emotions that it provokes and the time it can take to process the trauma are subjective and unique to each individual. Attacking a survivor's credibility and integrity can only strengthen the stigma around reporting these crimes, and further encourage others to stay silent. Scroll down below to check out the best comebacks to Trump's tweets for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Its remind me of my neighbour. She was 12 0r 13 and she killed the demon with a riffle. Her mother said absolutely nothing and the girl wasnt arrested at all. Brave little girl. Whole town was very proud of her. Unfortunately there are little bit brave girls like her. Depend of the country the girl can be prosecuted and killed by their stupid laws.

I am so so sorry you lived this. I know religion often is used as an excuse or twisted to make the abuser unaccountable. I hope you one day find out that the "religion" they were preaching was bullsh*t and that there really IS a God who loves you. And that God has vengeance for those who hurt his children.

Because she was the pastor's adopted daughter and he and his wife's pride and joy. Proof of their charity and godliness.... and my babysitter. I didn't understand why we always had to play her games, which always ended with no clothes and me being 'punished'. Because a girl would never do that to another girl. Because according to my step father I was the product of tainted blood from my bio father's evil family and therefore a whore and a liar. They held a service to pray over me to drive out the demons of deceit and wantoness. I was 7.

The last time I stopped by the house of a friend's acquaintance to pick up a TV he was giving her. It was on the way home from picking my son up at his daycare. He invited me in and said he'd get the TV from a back room. He came back out with a gun and held it to my son's head the entire time he was raping me. When he let me go I went across the street to the police station and reported it. They told me I was lying, that I admitted that I had consented to sex with him. They walked over and came out of his house slapping him on the back and joking with him. He told them I was obviously easy and wanted it because I had a kid. They asked him if he wanted to press charges against me for making a false complaint. He generously let me off the hook, saying I was just desperate for attention. We don't report because the hell you are put through from family, friends, the church, and the police is often as bad or worse than the actual rape itself.

I have a similar story and feel the same way. He only touched my thighs inappropriately on several occasions and didn't respond to me saying no (a friend saved me later on, I confided in him and he talked to the assaulter). I'm trying to be thankful. Because I have friends who have been raped. Only recently and much thanks to the whole "Me too" movement I made myself tell people. Even the ones who know him. Maybe he won't do it again but maybe he will. And I shouldn't be the one who bears the responsibility of not telling anyone. If people think less of him because of it - they should. He should have listened to me saying no.

This is honestly so sad, that this seems normal. Our country is broken, and not just ours. This happens all over the world, and nobody tells, because people don't belive them, or because the person who did it was a "kind person", "they would never do that", or they "didn't have evidence". Why would you need evidence and not trust the word of the person it actually happened to? I know sometimes people lie about this happening to them, and that is just abominable. But every case, and I mean EVERY, should be treated as real. I understand this is a post about why people didn't report, but some should learn from this and always tell, no matter what your family or friends say.
