Men get attacked and they get raped too. By both men and women. And, sometimes you can't process the damage until it hits you. Recently, a wrongly accused man took his life due to societal pressure. That gave Ali Zafar the chance to gain sympathy against the #metoo campaign.
Meesha Shafi may not be your ideal #metoo "personality", but then again no one is. No one deserves to be violated. Yet, no one should be ridiculed for what they have faced.
Next month, I am turning 33. Yet, I have had troubled times of my own. Almost 2 years ago, it suddenly hit me that I faced a few cases of child abuse. The first one came in 1992. I was only 6. A very religious relative of mine (a teenager) asked me touch him in certain parts.

Why im so strongly supporting #metoo ? cuz i know exactly how it happens now, inside a room then outside courts inside courts and how a survivor hides confides cuz i was brutally raped by a very powerful person in our media world. A Giant actually. and yes im taller than him but

The anticipation of death is far worse than death itself! The POS that were part of the coup against our President are starting to feel the heat.

Federal prosecutors reviewing the origins of the Russia investigation have asked witnesses pointed questions about any anti-Trump bias among former F.B.I. officials who are frequent targets of President Trump and about the earliest steps they

3 years ago today Trump pitched the announcement of his inauguration committee (he hadn't yet established a real transition committee) as an "ethics reform plan."
Tom Barrack was the Chair.

He has spent much of the interim period under investigation, in part, for laundering foreign $$ to Trump.

Unclear what happened to that, tho there's a decent chance Manafort's plea deal lies saved him.…
The Deputy Chair was not named.

That was Rick Gates, who would go on to admit maybe stealing a little dough from the inauguration trough.

He has spent the last 2.5 years trying to work his way out of prison time for money laundering and tax fraud.

wenn ihr wollt, dass es #metoo nicht mehr braucht, dann tut was gegen gewalt an und übergriffe gegen frauen. und hört auf damit, diese gewalt zu rechtfertigen, weil sie von mächtigen kommt. ihr legitimiert damit die gewalt an sich.
es ist für die bewertung völlig egal, ob der franz von nebenan oder 1 celebrity eine frau verprügelt. beide prügeln. bei beiden gehört der gleiche maßstab angelegt. bei beiden ist es gleich verwerflich, gleich gewalttätig.
übergriffe sind nicht beim einen ~charmanter~ als beim anderen. es sind übergriffe. täterzentrierung und das stigmatisieren und in-zweifel-ziehen der betroffenen muss aufhören. täter fühlen sich weiterhin bestätigt, weil sie sind ja auch "nur" ~charmant~

It’s cool that Ronan Farrow’s mom played Rosemary Woodhouse, because his new book reads a lot like Ira Levin’s books where the naive protagonist slowly discovers everyone in the community is part of the plot to rape/forcibly impregnate/murder-and-replace-with-robots the women.
Everyone likes to reference The Handmaid's Tale, but #MeToo feels more like The Stepford Wives or Rosemary's Baby. It turns out that yet, the men are secretly plotting against you.
And yes, it continues to be weird that Roman Polanski directed what may be the greatest feminist horror film of all time, but then again, he does have a shared interest in stories about secret plots to rape women.

1. A thread on the Democratic candidates... let’s call it Burning Questions. @1catherinesiena @Andreatellsall @phillyrich1 @PolitiBunny @POTUS @drawandstrike Let’s go one by one...
2. Liz Warren - How can America trust you when you have lied about your heritage to get a job, or about being fired because you were pregnant, it how you were #MeToo’d by a polio victim?
3. Joe Biden - How can America trust you when you have lied about your Ukrainian corruption connections , your role in passing Obasmcare, or Benghazi?

I was rummaging through my video archives the other day and realized that there is a formerly omnipresent voice who once ruled Fox News and who is not even remotely missed by anyone now, his absence from the airwaves a never-lamented, blissful reality: Bill O'Reilly.
2) What was most noteworthy about O'Reilly was the really visceral nastiness he brought to the airwaves. He loved to bully people with physical intimidation and what seemed like near threats of violence. This clip is from one of his many attacks on Dr. George Tiller.
3) He had a history of these kinds of meltdowns on the set, though usually with the cameras off. Like this one from his days with 'Inside Edition.' "Fuck it, we'll do it live!" is now a cliche.

Starting to think the NYT's beloved epithets for Twitter— "cesspool," "sewer," "angry left mob"—are its equivalent of Trump's fake news. That is: All criticism of the NYT is sewage.…
"PItchforks"? For #MeToo offenses? For racist headlines?

I'm getting the sense that the paper might see sewage and pitchforks in...people of color & feminists.
Might also be worth noting that "pitchforks" are not actually lethal implements but protected speech: *sentences* composed by NYT readers—most of them without OTHER PLATFORMS.

Unlike the NYT, which is THE platform.

But Twitter is not speech; it's sewage.

I’m troubled by this.

We have seen GMButts and #TrudeauCorruption fir 4 years LIE on everything— some lies are criminal #ObstructionOfJustice

They will do anything for power. So I’m skeptical

Why would anyone risk lives of 1000 attendees if the risk was real?
2/ #TrudeauWorstPM mistrust on everything FAKE:
- #metoo -groping
- feminist- firing top women
- environmentalist - 2 planes
- Ethics
- inclusion- #blackface

Healthy to think it’s staged.

I broke #HijabHoax story.
Why is this tweet still up?

3/. Why were what appears to be Canadian rangers at event protecting #TrudeauCorruption ?

It seems against RCMP protocol to delegate the safety of the PM to Canadian Rangers.

I have RCMP followers - help me on this.

I’m thinking this was staged.

Three quick points about the indignation expressed here by Candace Owens over Brooke Nevils continuing to see Matt Lauer romantically even after she said he anally raped her in a hotel at the 2014 Olympics. 1/
ONE: sometimes when you’re raped or abused, you try to “redeem” it, to make it better, to turn the rape into love. Why? Because you don’t want to think of yourself as a victim, you don’t want to admit you naively gave your trust to someone who eagerly used that for evil. 2/
TWO: being a woman requires a certain amount of go-along-to-get-along politeness. When I was a waitress, customers grabbed my body and pulled me by the apron to request something like ketchup. The real price of that ketchup? /3

Let me try to unpack this to explain why this is so horrifying to read for people in Hong Kong. We're having the worst possible version of a #MeToo moment, which has a #ProtestToo hashtag.
There's a lot of things going on here. For starters, police stopped wearing warrant cards (what you'd prob call badge numbers) back in June. There is no way for anyone to personally identify any HKPF responsible for anything.
Of course it's 100% intentional, because it means there's no way to file a complaint through the one (1) mechanism available: Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC). Even if you had their warrant card, 99.5% of complaints go nowhere because HKPF decides what to do about it.

A Thread: Today the Board of Directors of @mastersuniv/@MastersSeminary is meeting. Will they finally publicly address this SEXUAL CRIME that occurred ON CAMPUS? Crime/Arrest of the student employee was 6/12/19. No official stmt (1/10)

#MeToo #churchtoo
The Student EMPLOYEE was a Resident Assistant, meaning he LIVED in the dorms with plenty of opportunity to take illegal pictures for sexual gratification. Why no PSA from @mastersuniv administration? Why no warning there was an alleged predator living among the students? (2/10)
@mastersuniv @MastersSeminary is already on accreditation probation. The accrediting agency cited a negligent lack of knowledge of Clery Act and Violence Against Women Act by administration. (3/10) (see files under Commission Actions)

Looking for catchy suggestions of hashtags to help my Dan Schneider campaign take off. We need something memorable and catchy that we can all use to link our posts together. Please suggest ideas in the comments and I will make a poll shortly.
We need a catchy hashtag like #metoo or #timesup that we can brand around taking down Dan Schneider if we really want this to work. We need your suggestions in the comments and overall effort to make this work.
#Schneidergate and #Schneiderfile don't work too well because it's hard for the layman to quickly spell his name. #Pedogate is too easy for the mainstream media to discredit. Maybe we call it #Nickgate or #Nickghazi or something like that instead?

My trolls keep asking me why I’m verified and I am in the mood to answer, so let’s go, here’s why I’m famous lmao, a brief summary
1) I’m an illustrator and poet foremostly, wnd my work revolves around themes of social justice and self exploration. I’m a bunch of other things but I don’t necessarily state them out or call myself them, other people do? Like activist, influencer, blah blah.
Back to my work, I started illustrating when I was 17 and some of my work went viral. My first interview was with the fader…

Re-upping this. Why does Andrew Lack of NBC News still have a job? His Megyn Kelly gambit = failure, NBC News may well have sat on Access Hwd tape, he got rid of Ronan's Weinstein story--ON TOP of allegedly covering for Lauer & others harassers. WHAT MAKES THIS DUDE WORTH IT??
The fact that Noah Oppenheim and Andrew Lack are still employed in positions of great power and making a lot of money tells you all you need to know about whether #MeToo has "gone too far."
"After Lauer’s firing, she learned that Noah Oppenheim, the president of NBC News, and Andrew Lack, the chairman of NBC News and MSNBC, “were emphasizing that the incident hadn’t been ‘criminal’ or an ‘assault’” — which she claims caused her to throw up, Farrow writes."

What we are all hopefully learning is how much some people seem to think a person’s uterus is public property.
And also how so many people hate women so much they think that unless you tell a painful part of your story every single time you recount it, you must be a liar. That is not how people work. Let women be people.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve told a story about my college years where I neglected to mention that I was struggling with trauma from rape at the time. Guess I know who’s ready to use that to deny the rape happened! Not every story has to focus on the worst details.

Whoops, the people who tried to accuse Elizabeth Warren of lying about pregnancy discrimination forgot that pregnancy takes 9 months (and change, for pedants).…
Warren was rehired for a job — before her pregnancy would have been showing. But when she says she was pressured to leave, it was 2 months later.
My (probably vain) hope is people look past this silly attempt to create a scandal, and at the very real nuance conveyed in Warren’s story. Sexism isn’t just one guy dismissing you for pregnancy. It’s all the various ways women are discouraged from pursuing their dreams.

APSA continues to stonewall witnesses. Why? My analysis drawing on my training as a political scientist specializing in institutions. It comes down to asymmetrical resources, decentralized nature of the professional orgs, difficulty translating existing harassment law into 1/
a conference setting, and a collective action problem since disproportionately junior women suffer harassment. First, there is a gross asymmetry in time and resources between those harassed and the professional org. APSA has a lawyer on call (paid for by our membership dues), 2/
APSA also has a paid professional staff and part of their job is dealing with these issues. Individual academics who are harassed have themselves. No back up from their unis or anyone else. For many of us, we've spent hours sending emails, making calls, backchannelling 3/

1/17 THREAD: Despite the many self-styled complementarians who are jumping on the "David raped Bathsheba" bandwagon, this new woke hermeneutical lens is radically egalitarian at its core because it necessarily requires that men and women both have equal standing, authority,
2/17 roles, influence, and power before consensual sex is even possible. If there is even a slight differential between the parties, then coercion has occurred and consent cannot be freely and authentically given, which means the encounter was actually rape. This framework is
3/17 currently being applied to the David/Bathsheba narrative, but I doubt its proponents have thought through the necessary changes we must now make to many other OT narratives. This framework is, and I cannot stress this enough, entirely untenable with regard to creating a
