(RNN) - People on Twitter shared snapshots of themselves at age 14, the age a woman was when she said Senate candidate Roy Moore molested her 40 years ago.

In the Washington Post's story Thursday, four women claimed Moore dated them as teens, including Leigh Corfman, who claimed he plied her with alcohol, kissed and fondled when she was 14. 

Moore, the GOP candidate to replace Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions as U.S. senator from Alabama, has denied the claims and threatened to sue the newspaper.

Despite the allegations, some backers of Moore refuse to believe the women's stories. Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler used the example of Mary and Joseph in the Bible in an attempt to justify a 30-year-old dating a 14-year-old.

The thread #MeAt14 was started Catherine Lawson of Raleigh, NC, a lawyer and Republican.

"We need to affirm there are lines we won’t cross in the name of party labels,” she told The News & Observer.

The hashtag was amplified by Lizz Winstead, co-creator of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."

Actress Alyssa Milano and TV personality Katie Couric were among those who posted photos of themselves at age 14, providing snapshots of how innocent their lives were like back then.

Some people discussed the sexual abuse they were subjected to as teens, and its effect on their lives.
