Not I

Andy in Japan asks my opinion:

BTW, what are your thoughts on this latest ‘me too’ Facebook circular jerk. My guess is about 90% of those posting are unwanted advances not actual harrassment/abuse.

That would be my guess too. Somebody started a ‘me too’ hashtag on Twitter so women who’ve been subjected to sexual assault in the manner of Harvey Weinstein’s victims could let themselves be known, and several million (mainly American) women responded.

This is self-indulgent, feminist-driven posturing. They have quite deliberately blurred the line between rape, sexual assault, and unwanted attention. Lewd remarks, being pestered by male colleagues in the office, and similar acts of unwanted interaction can be pretty unpleasant, but they are not the same as demands for sexual favours or unwanted physical contact of an overtly sexual nature. Most women sharing the ‘me too’ hashtag will simply be recalling the time a builder wolf-whistled at them to justify joining the victim bandwagon and advance their political agenda.

It is little different from a man setting up a ‘me too’ hashtag to highlight the serious issue of false rape allegations, and men retweet it if, at any point in their lives, they’ve ever been the victim of a woman’s lies. If ever there was a campaign guaranteed to achieve 100% saturation, that would be it.

  1. It’s a bit like the Guardian’s everyday sexism section, which lumps Weinstein-style behaviour in with that time Phil in accounts asked me out and I said no cos he’s a minger, (ew!).

  2. I thought it was a rather clever way for the most privileged group of women to have ever live to claim victim hood by the very means by which many of them achieved their stardom.

    Good little trick if they pull it off.

    Note also the disconnect between this and the outrage Mike Pence caused when.he revealed he did not meet with women alone…..

  3. 100% of my friends who have posted “Me Too” are lefty wimminz working in Lefty-dominated environments.

    To quote Instapundit, why are Lefty-dominated industries such cesspits of misogyny?

  4. Thanks for the reply. You’ve said what I’ve been thinking far more eloquently than I could.

    Debating now whether to post a link to this piece on my timeline and see what the response is.

    Yes, do it! All publicity is good publicity! 😛

  6. Frank Cervi nails it here:

    “Today, women have eroded their stock down to just their vagina. No verifiable virtue, morals, responsibility, restraint, charm, softness, rarely beautiful (dyke-cuts, landwhales, tattoos, clown hair). What do they demand from men? To pound the BUY button. Offering men full-on risk in exchange for everything they have (their time, commitment, money, freedom) is not a fair trade.

    Men will pump and dump. That is easy to do today, as the price of pussy continues to be at all-time lows (if you avoid marriage). So long as women are on Tinder and other social media, trading their sex for Facebook ‘likes’, dollar beers, concert tickets, Netflix and Chill sessions, and Gina Tingles, men will be there to provide the pipe—but not the paper. By the time they find that “deal”, their end has already been tarnished by miles of dick and bukkake pile-drivers.”

    Or, what is worse, will be using it as imaginary “revenge” against that older more experienced bloke who took what they were patently offering, but didn’t bother phoning them again.

  8. I used to enjoy ‘unwanted advances’ though I’ll admit it’s different for us, being so much bigger, faster, stronger. At least if you are a man it is terribly easy to brush them off without hurting feelings. Well, as long as she is sane.

  9. The majority of times I’ve been sexually harassed, dearieme, it’s been by gays.

    The size advantage is less of a factor then.

  10. To quote Instapundit, why are Lefty-dominated industries such cesspits of misogyny?

    Indeed.

  11. The majority of times I’ve been sexually harassed, dearieme, it’s been by gays.

    And yet lefties love a conservative, straight man being embarrassed by a flamboyant gay man coming onto them. Funny how some sorts of sexual harassment are deemed funny, isn’t it?

    Yes.
