We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
While true it misses the larger point. It is accusations by women. Women are given the benefit of the doubt and men are assumed guilty. It highlights the error in allowing women into the military and it makes it obvious that hiring a woman is fraught with risk in any occupation. Do women lie about sexual assaults/incidents? According to stats, yes, about 57% of the time. Why? For revenge, for personal and economic gain and simply because of neurosis.
Why do you think that the Republicans on the committee didn't want to ask the accuser any questions? Because unless they simply took her side their actions in this environment would be construed as misogyny. It is ironic that in America, probably the safest and most progressive country in the world for women that this political agenda is so successful.
Women are not equal; they demand and receive special treatment across the board and the feminist activists want more special treatment.
And everyone laughed at Vice President Pence when he said he wouldn't meet with a woman alone. The feminist movement claims to want everything equal but their militaristic ways prove otherwise. This #me too movement is just another weapon in their bag of tricks. Unfortunately like everything else in our current society, it has become so prevalent, that those who really have been abused will not receive the attention they deserve.
As a woman I steer clear of anything that has the word movement associated with it, I have always been able to stand up for myself and will continue to do so. On a side note I raised three kids and it didn't take a village.
Let me jump in with a "not all feminists" caution. I've been a feminist for half a century. I don't denigrate men. I want to compete on my own merits, without no one deciding what I'm good at until they see me perform. I expect to take care of myself and pull my own weight. That doesn't mean I want people to pretend I'm as good at bench-pressing as a guy. I can either do things well or I can't. Arguing about whether I'm supposed to be good or bad at something because I'm female is a waste of time.
