I’ve said repeatedly that the #metooMVMT is for all of us, including these brave young men who are now coming forward. It will continue to be jarring when we hear the names of some of our faves connected to sexual violence unless we shift from talking about individuals [+] ...and begin to talk about power. Sexual violence is about power and privilege. That doesn’t change if the perpetrator is your favorite actress, activist or professor of any gender.
And we won’t shift the culture unless we get serious about shifting these false narratives.

At first the quote from #HenryCavill regarding #metooMVMT just annoyed me because it reinforced the ridiculous notions I hear constantly from men and trivializes the lived experience of people who have bravely spoken up...

yahoo.com/amphtml/lifest… ...but here is the OTHER thing that is annoying. The way the media talks about the #metooMVMT in relation to men whose sexual misconduct has been exposed. We all know language matters. Look at this language from the article on #HenryCanvill

Her attorney has issued a statement.
But we have to talk... Before you all ask here is the footage:

So...I had a little ‘incident’ tonight and I’m gonna his ahead and share it myself.
I spoke at the U of Akron tonight to a wonderful, generous crowd who put up with my hacking cough bc I’m sick.
During Q&A a woman gets up holding a camera phone on me while asking a question + She starts screaming out the names Bill Clinton’s accusers and says am I afraid that the #metoo movement has become too partisan and why these women weren’t names as Silence Breakers in Time magazine. By now she’s screaming. +

I was made aware of this video BEFORE I ever saw it because Tony Robbins people reached out to do damage control within 24 hours. They wanted to “give me context” apparently. I don’t need any. I have eyes. The full video is 11 mins. And it’s gross. Bravo to this woman. Oh the video is MUCH worse. His misogyny runs deep. To even repeat that story of his ‘friend’ who wouldn’t hire the ‘pretty woman’ as if it’s the MOVEMENT’s fault and not the sexist man’s fault is all you need to hear. It’s deplorable. But SO many folks misunderstand this work.
