So, #HimToo is about men being accused of sexual assault?

Cause all survivors would just use #MeToo since “me” would cover all genders.

So people made a hashtag to make this about men who are being accused. Cool, cool, cool.
My mum once ran into Sidney Crosby at an airport and whipped out a picture of me to show him how cute I am. So, I think you could be trying harder here. 🤷🏻‍♀️

The “false accusations” history examples you’ll see are as follows:

- duke lacrosse boys.
- to kill a mockingbird, which is fictional.
- Joseph. From the Bible. Who was accused by Potiphar’s wife.
Amazingly they will not include stories like Leo Frank or Emmett Till. Or Gregory Counts and VanDyke Perry. Or the Sacred Heart University guys. Or Brian Banks. Or Juan Rivera. I mean there’s a whole Wikipedia page you could use to get names of people actually wrongly convicted.
But using the actual names and faces of people who have been wrongfully convicted wouldn’t work as well, because:

1. They’d see that most of these folks are black, latinx, indigenous or Jewish and they’d have to answer for that.
2. What they’re really drumming up is uncertainty.
It’s the same logic that explains why you see interviews with old people in a diner in the middle of nowhere afraid that a brown person will bomb them. General fear and anxiety about the unknown.
They don’t want justice, or even “due process”, they want to be afraid... of the feminists.
Ahh yes, “empowerment points”, the preferred currency of feminists everywhere.

Like Bitcoin. But BitchCoin. Gained by making false accusations.

Oh my god. Oh my god this poor dude!!! This is the MY son guy!
This is from his brother apparently. Good grief.

Actually if you check the replies he and his bro seem like nice dudes.

What’s up internet? Do you know your logical fallacies? Gather round for a thread of logical fallacies loosely interpreted as Marvel Cinematic Universe characters through no scientific method other than my whims!
Straw man: misrepresenting someone’s argument in order to make it easier to attack.

Just like Hawkeye has to do.
False cause: presuming a real or perceived relationship between things means that one is the cause of the other.

Like this fabulous Hulk moment.

I don’t have a son, but if I did, and he was accused of sexually assaulting someone, I would look him in the eye and ask him what he had done. And he would know from my face that lying would be the worst choice he could make.
I don’t have a brother, but if I did and he was accused of sexually assaulting someone, I would call him up and say “is it true?” And he would know from my voice that lying would mean the end of our relationship.
I do have a husband, and if anyone accused him of sexually assaulting someone I’d look at him and say “tell me what happened.” And I would know if he was lying in that moment.

Hey new followers. It’s awesome to have you, but there’s been a thing that’s come up more than once in the past week that we need to talk about.

Do not embarrass me in others’ mentions.
You may notice I retweet a lot. I retweet a lot of feminists, a lot of educators, and a lot of really smart people. If you decide to respond to these retweets, please. Please.

Do. Not. Embarrass. Me.
A lot of their statements may have high emotions. This is normal given the state of our world. Do not play devil’s advocate. Do not sea lion. Do not “well but...”. Just don’t.

I never see my husband as emotional as when the Leafs are playing. It’s like a window into a whole other level of dudely feels. 😂

Hey @TwitterSupport , my friend @emmaesquared is being doxed. Apparently this is not a violation of @Twitter code of conduct? It’s okay to threaten people and post their address now? This is the kind of conversation you want to foster in this space?
Like we’re just all good with journalism students being threatened and having their address posted on twitter dot com? That’s cool with you?

How many people with big followings do I need to get on this so that you’ll pay attention, @TwitterSupport ?

What manager do I have to complain to to get a young journalist’s address taken off this god forsaken site?!
