"Representative Yoho put his finger in my face.

He called me disgusting.

He called me crazy.

He called me out of my mind.

There were reporters in the front

of the Capitol, and in front of reporters,

representative Yoho called me,

and I quote, A fucking bitch.

These are the words

that representative Yoho levied

against a Congresswoman.

The Congresswoman that not only represents

New York's 14th congressional district,

but every Congresswoman and every woman

in this country.

Because all of us have had to deal with this,

in some form, some way, some shape,

at some point in our lives.

And I wanna be clear

that representative Yoho's comments

were not deeply hurtful, or piercing to me.

Because I have worked a working class job.

I have waited tables in restaurants.

I have ridden the subway.

I have walked the streets, in New York city.

And this kind of language is not new.

I have encountered words uttered by Mr. Yoho,

and men uttering the same words as Mr. Yoho,

while I was being harassed in restaurants.

I have tossed men out of bars,

that have used language like Mr. Yoho's.

This is not new.

And that is the problem.

This issue is not about one incident.

It is cultural.

It is a culture of lack of impunity,

of accepting a violence,

and violent language against women.

An entire structure of power that supports that.

When I was reflecting on this,

I honestly thought

that I was just gonna pack it up, and go home.

It's just another day, right?

But then yesterday, Representative Yoho

decided to come to the floor

of the House of Representatives,

and make excuses for his behavior.

And that, I could not let go.

I could not allow my nieces,

I could not allow the little girls

that I go home to.

I could not allow victims

of verbal abuse, and worse, to see that,

to see that excuse,

and to see our Congress accept it

as legitimate, and accept it as an apology.

And I will not stay up late at night,

waiting for an apology

from a man who has no remorse

over calling women

and using abusive language towards women.

But what I do have issue with, is using women,

our wives, and daughters,

as shields, and excuses, for poor behavior.

Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife

and two daughters.

I am two years younger

than Mr. Yoho's youngest daughter.

I am someone's daughter too.

My father, thankfully, is not alive,

to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter.

My mother got to see Mr. Yoho's disrespect

on the floor of this house,

towards me, on television.

And I am here, because I have to show my parents

that I am their daughter,

and that they did not raise me

to accept abuse from men.

Having a daughter does not make a man decent.

Having a wife does not make a decent man.

Treating people with dignity and respect

makes a decent man.

And when a decent man messes up,

as we all are bound to do,

he tries his best, and does apologize.

Not to save face, not to win a vote,

he apologizes, genuinely, to repair

and acknowledge the harm done,

so that we can all move on."
