In his attempt to discredit the two women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in his younger years, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh offered that he was a virgin in high school and for many years after.
Though high school virginity is no indicator of whether Kavanaugh committed sexual assault, the assertion has been challenged by a former college classmate.
> Historian Steve Kantrowitz, who graduated from Yale with a B.A. in history in 1987, is calling into question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s claim to have been a virgin throughout college.
> Kantrowitz, who is now a history professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, writes on Twitter that he can recall Kavanaugh discussing his sexual exploits during their freshman year at Yale.
> “Perhaps Brett Kavanaugh was a virgin for many years after high school,” Kantrowitz writes. “But he claimed otherwise in a conversation with me during our freshman year in Lawrance Hall at Yale, in the living room of my suite.”
