@Charlie 10 is truly block-worthy. The "elitist" leader of the #MeToo movement is Tarana Burke, whose biography is anything but "elitist": "Burke was born in The Bronx, New York, and raised in the area.[1] [2]She grew up in a low-income, working-class family in a housing project and was raped and sexually assaulted both as a child and a teenager." Fuck you, Charlie.

I am 100% supportive of women standing up for themselves. Horrific abuse like your son’s ex girlfriend experienced as a child is not what the MeToo movement was about. It was about Hollywood movie stars, TV newscasters, and US Senators getting another fifteen minutes of fame by complaining about a man who may or may not have briefly touched the woman on her arm or her chest, or her butt while in public but saying nothing at the time; then twenty years later, making a complaint—not to the police, but to the press--with no proof whatsoever. I found that cowardly and venal. Many of the MeToo women had sex with important people to get a movie part, then went on to become famous movie stars. So these women granted the sex and benefitted from the sex—then, ten or twenty years later they made a big announcement in the press with no real proof. Some men were guilty and some men were innocent—but that didn’t matter because for some reason, many millennial women believe that ALL MEN MUST PAY!

And you know what good came out of it? A few rich men lost their jobs, a few famous women got a some salacious publicity (sparking lagging careers), and your son’s ex-girlfriend's sexual abuse, (which was way worse than any MeToo complainer), was left in the closet. More little girls will be abused, it didn’t help them at all. It didn’t help reduce domestic violence at all. Rape victims with actual police reports and proof were not helped one bit! The MeToo movement never addressed the very real sexual harassment suffered by the ordinary people like factory workers, waitresses, schoolteachers, nurses, doctors, secretaries. These ordinary women got absolutely nothing from all the hype generated by #MeToo.

MeToo was an elitist movement for the already privileged to monetize consensual sex and inappropriate flirting between adults. That’s all it was.

lf a man makes an inappropriate comment to me or makes inappropriate contact with me, do you know what I do? I address it then and there, with a harsh look or a slap and then I make sure that man is not anywhere in my life after that. All those self-serving MeToo-ers should have led by example, showing women how to be strong, and how you deal with bullshit from men when it happens. Instead they showed a hundred million ordinary American women that you must be rich or famous to be heard. So, in reality, those MeToo women hurt the vast majority of average women with average jobs and average lives.

It was a small, elitist movement comprised of a few privileged women who are cowardly, unethical, and sneaky. Their motive was profit, not women’s rights. I’m glad it’s over.
please charlie ..
every "movement" has all kinds of people in it we all know that.

this is the age of the mob, shitstorms, Pranger and lynching, nothing paticular of #metoo

empowering people to speak their mind creates all kind of waves and apparently all kind of excesses

see it as an evolutionary step on a path not a single event

my son's exgirlfriend was abused when she was 7 by a neighbor she adored, the actual feminist movement empowerd her to speak her mind. that pathed the way so her older sister managed to comment the abuse she sufferd by their step father
now that exgirlfriend is like the scene on the pic here in toxic macho latinamerica, with me sitting next to her at the barbecue smilling and supporting her with "well done!" comments after the machos have left battered like a beaten dog

.. it's evolution baby ..
And millions of his supporters and "incels" will believe him. And repeat this nonsense. And he will have achieved his goal.

#MeToo-Bewegung: Frauen haben es jetzt noch schwerer |

"Fast die Hälfte der Männer sagte, sie hätten Angst vor unfairen und falschen Anschuldigungen. Und als wir sie gefragt haben, ob sie deshalb lieber keine Frauen mehr einstellen würden, hat ein Viertel 'Ja' gesagt."
Das liegt auch daran, dass unter dem hashtag diverse Sachen vermischt worden sind und sicherlich die ein oder andere Unsicherheit erzeugen. Aber normalerweise sollte sich für 90% nichts ändern, es sei denn man war vorher schon ein Arschlocj
Thank you, Cass M :).

I am new to this conversation which is clearly been going on for months.

But my understanding from this thread is that one person forwarded to the mods many examples of the person in question's bad behavior other places, and the mods response was. 'Let's see what he does here.' Then he did bad stuff here, and they went through a multiple-step process of temporarily suspending him, letting him back on to give him another chance, suspending him again, etc. And are now working towards a real ban. I've also seen no mention of how they handle people having duplicate accounts.

If I have got any or all of this wrong, I apologize!

And again, I deeply sympathize with the desire to give people multiple chances and the opportunity for a fresh start. But maybe we can learn something from #metoo?
