I Was Suspended from Facebook for my #MeToo Post

What praise can I offer that even comes close to being equal to what you have done. I am both gratified and horrified by the MeToo response by women. I am happy that they finally have a forum to decry what has been done to them and I am horrified that they have had to put up with this aspect of male sexuality.

I was initially quite self congratulatory that I had never done anything like this to a girl or a woman and then began to wonder if maybe I had. No street corner flashing or “Hey, Baby, you wanna do it” kinds of things but maybe other pressures when I thought the desire I felt was reciprocal. I’ve never pushed it beyond a “no, I don’t want this with you” and I suppose that is good, but maybe there were times when the “no” was just not said out loud. I don’t know, but all of this has me thinking about it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
