I can easily contact and talk to a dozen women who have been sexually assaulted. Because I know that many. A dozen women I have met personally decided it was worth speaking out about their own sexual assault experiences in order to not only bring the numbers of #MeToo into focus for everyone, but provide reality and context.
Sadly it doesn't seem like everyone sees this. So here! See it!
But, if the problem of false accusations against men is so bad that they need to be advocated for by the President at the expense of all these women, that must mean that I must know at least a few men who have dealt with false allegations. Right?
Any men care to stand up and admit they have been falsely accused? Share your story of who accused you and why, so I can better understand the scale of this issue?
Or would admitting something of that nature bring a negative moment in your life into the spotlight for everyone to pass judgement upon you regardless of what context you present? Or would it cast doubt inside yourself that you really are deserving of the accusations cast upon you?
I'm sure women can't even imagine how that feels... /sarcasm
**All 8 posts in this blog are from women I have met over the last 14 years of my life, and would advocate proudly on their behalf as outstanding people as far as I have ever known any of them. They are teachers, radio personalities, designers, academics, engineers, entrepreneurs, bakers, actors and among other things, general badasses. And the thought of these powerful men, that remind me of nothing more than the grossest people I experienced at Michigan State University, openly mocking this reality; is just too fucking much. #Resist **
