Recently, an article circulated on Odyssey's main page written by a girl who seemed to think the entire #MeToo movement was made so that women can get ahead of men.
News flash: NOT TRUE!
The movement was made so men and women who are survivors of sexual assault knew they weren't alone. It was made to let people have a platform to speak out. It is an effective movement.
However, the woman who wrote the article seemed to think that every woman who spoke out about their #MeToo experience was lying. So much for women empowering women, am I right?
Two percent of all accusations turn out false. Two percent. And for you to think that the majority is lying, and for you to think that the ENTIRE movement was motivated upon lies? That's just victim blaming on your part.
I am appalled that a WOMAN, a survivor of assault, refuses to get behind a movement because she falsely believes that the majority is using it to get above men.
I'm not saying that women don't lie about it sometimes, and that is disgusting for them to do. But to believe that the majority is lying, when they KNOW how they'll get treated by society for speaking out, why would they do that to themselves?
Believe it or not, you're part of the problem. Because A LOT of women get called liars, and that's exactly what you're doing, calling them liars.
I am a survivor myself, I am not a millennial, but I will ALWAYS support the Me Too movement, and I will ALWAYS believe women.
