I do think cases like this are relevant to #MeToo, because the kind of aggressive, high-testosterone non-sexual harassment Tambor was engaging in feeds into an environment where men feel like they can engage in sexual harassment as well without consequences. I think if we give men the cop-out of “well, you’re not nice, but you’re not evil like those other men,” we still aren’t addressing the root issue, which is toxic masculinity. And with the #MeToo movement, a big goal is to make workplaces safer for women in general. It’s not all about sexual violence. It’s about respect and inclusion, too.
Thank you for your comment, it’s definitely a fair question to ask.
