#Me too…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know about #Me too, “the movement against sexual harassment.” [1].

This movement has spread too fast [2], thanks to the help of social networks, and in essence encourages women who have been sexually abused to talk openly about their problem. According to a survey, nearly half of the women working in America have been harassed on the job. [3]

The cause for this movement, or for its immediate spread, was the accusations or revelations of sexual harassment, assault or even rape by at least 30 women to the 65-year-old producer of the Miramax and The Weinstein Company (TWC), Harvey Weinstein. [4].

In the process, every woman who thought that might she has been somehow abused, starting to share her sexual harassment story that usually happened many years ago. And that was only the eye of the storm.

But let’s take a look at #Me too, before we go on, because we will need some information. According to a survey, 94% of Hollywood women have been the victims of sexual harassment [6]. In the meanwhile, the WoodyAllenGate started as a second movement, since half of the who was with him, accuse him as a “sexual predator” [7].

Also, in Hollywood, the president of the American Academy of Cinema is reportedly under investigation for sexual harassment [8], and even the director Roman Polanski, accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl in 1977 (!). [9]

Gwyneth Paltrow, one of the actors who made allegations to Harvey Waining (The actress said she received a fax from her representatives at Creative Artists Agency scheduling a meeting with Weinstein at a hotel. While the meeting began uneventfully, Paltrow said Weinstein eventually touched her, tried to massage her and invited her into the bedroom).

Of course, the cases are thousands, and come from everywhere [10], like sports, like the case of Larry Nassar, the former physician of the US Olympic gymnastics group, who sentenced to 175 years in prison for having sexually assaulted young athletes [11] or even the rape allegations against Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo, as A young woman claims that he raped her. [12]

I could say here that all men are pigs and that we want to have sex with anything that breathes and that we do not hesitate rape a woman to fulfil our needs, but no, this is not my opinion. For me, no rape has ever happened, and the most men who are accused of sexual assault and harassment, or even rape, are innocent. Or as Catherine Deneuve said, the #MeToo movement encouraged “puritanism.” and we shouldn’t not “confuse an awkward attempt to pick someone up with a sexual attack.” [13] “[Men] should be “free to hit on” women. Men have been punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone’s knee or try to steal a kiss,” she added.

After all, the actors know about each other and what’s really going on, like, for example, Sean Penn, who in his new book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, wrote a poem that criticizes the #Me too movement and goes like this: [14]

«Once crucial conversations/Kept us on our toes;/Was it really in our interest/To trample Charlie Rose?»
«Where did all laugh go?/Are you out there Louis C.K.?

The names written by Sean Penn are not random. Both of them have also been accused of rape [15, 16]. And of course, as you should expect, the reviews have been less than kind. Anything that goes against the main trend is condemnable. [16]

As I said above, for me it is not rape. If that is the case, justice is responsible for judging, but my opinion is that it is not rape.

“MeToo as a collective hysteria of the kind that sometimes happens in the society. Everyone is trying to sign up, chiefly out of fear. To me this is total hypocrisy,” Roman Polanski said.

Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person’s consent.

Rape is when a man does anything to a woman without her consent and she immediately goes to the police, or she goes the next day, if she was asleep or unconscious (due to alcohol or drug consumption) and make an accusation. Unless she doesn’t want to report it and let it go, mainly because she needed something from him, then it is not called a rape but consensual sex.

Coming out after 30 years to say something you never spoke before, when you’ve built your career, means nothing. And in many cases, this is what I think it was happened, the “victims” chose their “rapists” for their own purposes, or as Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer said “it’s ‘not rape’ if woman uses sex to advance her career.” [17] Or if you want to bring back your career, I could add.

Suppose you are a young wannabe actress, beautiful and ‘innocent’ and a producer invites you to his home to discuss for the role in a movie you want to play at all costs, so your recognition to begin. No matter how innocent you may are, you have already understood his intentions, but even if you did not understand them, at home you would get the message. Unless you are so innocent that you think you are naked to play the doctor and the patient.

Women are known to lie for sex while using rape to blame someone when and whenever they want, and many of those “rapes” are false accusations.

The same was happened when the conversation with President Trump came out, where he said “Grab ’em by the pussy.” And then some women came out and accused Trump of sexual misconduct [18].

Really, how many times we have read about false accusations of women or for men who spent years in jail for rape they didn’t commit? Countless. [19, 20, 21, 22, 23]

She had a great time but when this photo became viral, she said she was raped. Just see her face…

Rape seems to be something like women’s leverage, a tool they have, and they can blame anyone they want and destroy his career [23]. Or let’s remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn. He accused of raped a maid 24], but he was released, as the maid’s credibility questioned [25, 26]. The damage had been done, his career and his family were destroyed.

Women generally have a tendency to support each other, whether or not something has been done, without asking, always believing the “victim”.

Personally, I do not believe that a rape did happen. No rape or harassment occurred, if the woman didn’t go to the police after that. Women who “raped” did it for their own sake. Of course, I do not forget the dozens of cases of rape that occur everywhere, but I’m talking about the cases where it sometimes helped a woman to been “raped” a man who was in position of power, but on the way she decided that she should change her mind.
