In the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings and eventual judicial confirmation to the United States Supreme Court, America has been left with many mingling emotions. However, the dominant and most concerning feeling, according to President Trump, is fear. Which is undoubtedly a strange and terrible new sensation for cisgender heterosexual white men.
