#metoo

Anyone else's FB feed littered with this nonsense? Literally every chick who's had a guy ask her out with a cheesy pick-up line has by definition been "sexually harassed". XD The validation/attention hoaring is real with this one. https://c

I have already said this - you can't expect to have a serious discussion about these things on social media.

MeToo is attention hoaring and cyber bullying.

And so the Me Too campaign has harvested its first life, as it goes when you're thrown to the wolves on a whim.

"Labour minister Carl Sargeant ‘begged party chiefs to tell him sex pest allegations’ before ‘he took his own life’

“I’ve said it before but there has to be anonymity for anybody facing sexual abuse or assault allegations as well as the victim.

“How many more suicides do there have to be before the Home Office acts on this? Carl was still innocent!”

Assembly Member Jenny Rathbone said that Sargeant had not been told details of the allegations that had been made against him.

just delete the topic, like the common sense should dictate, anyway, you piece of butter



"Common sense" according to someone who sexually insults my mother in a thread on sexism and harassment. Well played, sir

I'm sorry from now on I will only express thoughts and feelings that resonate with your sentiments.

And on another thread, female dxpers remain adamant that men should always make the first move, while alluding to the fact that persistence can sometimes pay off...

So you are offending my mother to get to me? Is that some new form of political activism?

Typical cracks in the facade for a shady individual parading as a white knight. Has your act gotten you laid yet? A few PMs at least?

“Me too” refers to sexual harassment. It is intended to demonstrate just how widespread this aspect of female experience is. It is also intended to galvanise as many women as possible to “speak out”, to “tell their stories” – curiously dated phrases that echo the consciousness-raising lingo of the 1970s feminist movement.

Except that unlike the Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1970s, this is just hashtag feminism. It’s full of grievance but utterly lacking in solutions or even ideas.

Whereas the likes of Gloria Steinem and Susan Brownmiller – the latter responsible for getting rape laws changed in the US with her unstinting history Against Our Will – were out tirelessly altering centuries-old structures of rank discrimination, women today just need to tell a personal sexual horror story tagged with a catchphrase plucked from an ever-shifting, ever-more-banal lexicon of "solidarity".

So I won’t be joining the #metoo movement. My Facebook and Twitter accounts remain free of all mention of sexual harassment. Instead of “Me too?”, try “not me, sorry folks” on for size. Why this outrageous, socially almost criminal recalcitrance?

First, I’m sick to death of hashtag feminism (and, indeed, hashtag a lot of things). It lacks the intellectual coherence put in place by our femininist foremothers in the 1970s and 80s. It is obsessed with sex and objectification rather than other forms of discrimination. And it doesn’t make the kind of arguments that would actually persuade those who most need the persuasion.

By contrast, men who read, for instance, Brownmiller’s scholarly yet gripping Against Our Will emerged with a whole new arsenal of ideas about gender and humankind at the end. No amount of divisive hashtagging will achieve this. It just validates and entrenches a bitter rhetoric that pits women against men in a way that seems to be merely regressive rather than effective.

#Metoo and its ilk are also futile – who exactly are these hashtags for? Seems to me this is yet another example of indignant performativity preached exclusively through tweets and posts and video clips to the converted rather than through ideas or action that might reach those beyond.

Would the man who appeared in the shadows last night as I walked back from the station (no: I won’t tell you what he said) be impressed by the #metoo movement? He probably hasn’t heard of it.

Nor do I like the inescapable whiff oozing off all this that women are, fundamentally and essentially, victims. Post-Weinstein scandal, it feels as though women are embracing a notion of ourselves in which we are bound by our own biology and men’s biological drives to be perpetually on the receiving end.

#Metoo is underpinned ideologically, if it can be said to contain any ideas at all, by the idea of ubiquity. It is meant to shock by showing how widespread the problem is. The implication? Women the world over are victims. But while sexual harassment and far more seriously, sexual assault, is hugely widespread, there is more to life, to womanhood, and to relationships between the sexes, than that.

I don’t like the way hashtags divide people into “Righteous and Aggrieved” and everyone else
I can’t help it. I just don’t like the way hashtag “movements” divide people into “Righteous and Aggrieved” and everyone else.

In this case, are women who strongly feel their lives have not been marred by sexual harassment or even those – gasp – who think there are worse things in the world than lewd comments by randoms or ill-conceived come-ons by older, fatter male bosses, allowed to speak?

What about the women who secretly enjoy unlooked-for attention – including catcalls? And what of the women who find it funny, and snicker, when a man does something sexually inappropriate?

What about women who just cannot remember the last time a man harassed them? What about those who, perhaps overweight, perhaps handicapped, perhaps just not attractive according to the norms of the day, feel painfully invisible, rather than preyed upon?

Are these women also allowed to “speak out”? I’m not sure.

Yes: too many men behave badly towards women because of sex. But hashtag feminism is not the answer. So, until we come up with something more substantive, I’m afraid it’ll be a “no thanks” from me.

"All of us have pains in our life. And sometimes the pains are deeper than others. But all pain is the same."

Why should this be about measuring the range/severity of a supposed sexual harassment/abuse?

This should be a good thing that more women are coming out to share some experiences that they've had that made an emotional mark on them so much so that they remain constantly in their memories. Maybe it's cathartic for some people. And hey, maybe some men would even be encouraged to share their own experiences. Men can get harassed/abused too.

People naturally keep such unpleasant things to themselves for years. I doubt they'd want to share details about such experiences simply for attention. We can't just minimize other people's pain.. the way we can't measure other people's emotions. We can't tell them: "It wasn't that bad. At least, you weren't raped."

The closest to a harassment I've experienced.... since I sure did feel intimidated was this:

He was a cab driver and I was a 17-year old girl going to meet up with some friends in the middle of the afternoon for my birthday..for some reason I rode at the front (should I be blamed for this choice?). Then as the trip went on, he placed his hand on my thigh, started to draw circular patterns on my skin and told me about how much I'll enjoy having sex with him. Telling me all the things he's going to do to me, knowing that it was my 17th birthday. And I was paralyzed by shock (does that mean I'm allowing it?). And he wanted to pull up in a gas station and told me we should have lunch. So I told him that I'm getting out and he let me go. I got out and I felt like crying.

I've only ever told this to my friends in one occasion. And after hearing it, one of them decided to share how her own uncle tried to groom her when we were still in grade school but failed.

Should our experiences be minimized because our potential abusers did not succeed?

Are we trying to seek attention by sharing our stories?

Well yes you want to hide it, but how do you know it's just attention seeking.. you don't know what winen have gone through. Maybe this #metoo is a form of support for those who have been sexually assaulted or raped.

Have some compassion.


Nope, not going to have compassion for this type of behavior.

I will reserve compassion for the women that have actually been raped or severely sexually assaulted, and live with it and refuse to be victims.

I am not going to have compassion for these idiots. And you can almost always tell the fabricated stories, from the real ones.


So how do you personally tell the truth between those who have been assaulted compared to those who are just jumping the bandwagon.

I certainly hope your statement of "living with it" and not being a victim comes from a place of personal experience.... because lets be honest here, People deal with things differently.

So if someone wants to hashtag metoo. Who are you to judge who is really a victim or not, because I assume you wrote the textbook to "coping and living with it"


Nothing against you, so dont take this personal.

Please refer to the 2 last pages. I am tired of repeating myself and the low key women whom dont understand that i want fairness when things are obviously lies.


Yeah I kinda stopped reading the thread at page 4 so apologies if you have explained.

I think its easy for us to judge how others deal with things. Just because you put on your right shoe first while I put on my left, does not mean we doing it wrong was my point.

Two sisters are raped in one family....

One commits suicide over it because she cant cope or deal with what happened to her.

The other sister may decide to tweet/post #metoo.

Just saying.

Edit to add: Also what one person will feel is harassment the next person may not. If my friend slaps me on my ass and I don't like it, I could view this has sexual harassment. If the same friend slaps another friend on the ass, it could be seen as a joke.



It is not the validity of the stories that I have an issue with, nor discrediting them all together. Again, I will state that I believe all women have a story of some from of sexual harassment. Be it a catcall, a smack on the ass, etc...

It is the obvious exaggeration of those stories, or the oneupsmanship nature that I am seeing that annoys me.


Ok, I can see your point and agree somewhat. I think it was more the part where you said "and live with it and refuse to be victims" that just got to me :-)

Anyway I understand now and didn't mean to single you out, as I say I stopped reading the thread... sorry if you felt I did single you out.
