More on #MeTooSociology and the most important piece about Wilkins. medium.com/@colleenfireha…
I can already feel the temptation of feminist professors to use this as a moment to critique #MeToo and to argue that feminist movements should hold men accountable first (or only).
Professors taking that stance are wrong. And they are not feminist. There is nothing wrong with cleaning your own house. There is something hugely important and admirable about defending our feminist spaces against abuse—even when the perpetrators are women.

Thanks @grollman for calling out the hypocrisy of sociologists who turn a blind eye to sexual misconduct in our institutions. UW-Madison can learn a lot from #MeTooPhD. Unfortunately that change is coming slower than I would like. egrollman.com/2018/08/03/met…
I spent more hours than I would like explaining to male faculty members why the “whisper network” exists, and how it’s more than just “rumors.” Many sociologists, including some of our faculty, study informal institutions that emerge when trust in formal institutions breaks down.
When you have a department that has victim-blamed, protected abusers, and turned a blind eye to the pain and trauma of members for DECADES, who thinks that the benefits of reporting outweigh the costs? But staying silent isn’t an option either if it means others could be hurt.
