Day 52 of 200: The Guy Who Harassed Me All Through High School Had Friends Too

Sixty-five women who went to high school with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh say he was a nice guy. Barf.

The thing with #MeToo is it makes me furious all the time. Every story of some guy being a total dirtbag or some dirtbag making his “comeback” makes me re-live every dirtbaggy thing ever done to me.

This Brett Kavanaugh business is hitting close to the bone and I’m full of rage.

As I’ve mentioned before I was bullied profusely in junior high and high school.

Every single day in 10th & 11th grade, Mike LaRoche would come up behind me, pinch my butt, shout “Oh yeah, Harley mama,” and then make vroom vroom noises as he walked away. He was always surrounded by people laughing at his hilarity. When I was in 8th grade he would follow me down the hall calling me Go-Go Gorilla.

I bet you could find 65 people who could look back and say, “Oh yeah, Mike was totally a good guy.”

He was not. It’s been 28 years since I graduated high school, and when I think about what he did to me my cheeks burn with shame and tears come to my eyes. Still. Twenty-eight years.

    This just made me waste 20 minutes googling that asshat. For what? Not sure what, but probably good I couldn’t narrow it down.
