I never said all the #metoo-ers. I should have been clearer: the false prophets detract from the real victims of abuse. Men get used for sex all the time too and messed with on the job. No I’ve been used many times. LED on with false promises. No one believes us.

Let me note that when ‘me too’ happened (and really way past fucking time) it started a conversation with every single woman of my acquaintance. There wasn’t even one, including my own daughter, who had not been sexually assaulted. So, as you know I appreciate your writing and insights, you certainly implied many of these charges were bullshit, I’m telling you that you haven’t any idea. Any.

I’m just saying there are a lot of liars out there and I have and a few friends have been victims of them. So, alas, you too, have zero idea.

Actually I’m not unaware of how men are used. If I seem adamant on the women’s side of things it’s from multiple times of inappropriate shit directly experienced. And the dismissal by men of the effect it has. And it has. There’s a retaliatory effect which I suspect may be one of the reasons do some extremely horrible things to men.

We all could use a high colonic as someone once said.

You’re doing what many of you do: sidestepping the argument, going into the weeds and blaming the messenger. All to be expected.

While I don’t doubt your story of the women in your life, I can’t get behind that every woman who’s a member of #metoo is a vicious snake. Too many of us have been there. I had an ahole of a manager at I store I cashiered for who thought he could get away with rubbing his face against my nylon enclosed legs behind a counter until I yelled in front of the whole store to stop touching my legs. He did shit like this to every woman who worked there. I complained to higher ups, thinking I’d get fired. Instead he got transferred to an all male location. This was in the 70’s mind you.

That said, I have a pentagram on my front door to keep god-botherers away. The results have been mixed.
