We're Asking the Wrong Questions about #MeToo Abusers

This was interesting but it confused me a little. While I certainly agree that Jeffrey Tambor’s penchant for temper tantrums is reprehensible, why it’s being cited in the #MeToo context is far from clear to me. (The later charges against him are another matter, of course.) As far as I can make out, Jessica Walter wasn’t being sexually harassed. She was being bullied. I get that many would call that a distinction without a difference. But it looks to me as though the #MeToo movement has lost its focus. A bad date or an instance of boorish male behavior hardly measure up to the kind of sexual harassment and outright abuse alleged against Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, etc., etc.
