“As a woman, #MeToo stories are not just stories from distant parts of the internet. They are my friends stories, women I love’s stories, MY stories.” This is what so many guys fail to recognize. They think this is about actresses who should have made better decisions getting pissy. That’s not the story either, but it’s really failing to recognize that #MeToo means it’s happened to just about every women they know. I sometimes tell them to ask their mothers and grandmothers for their stories, because you know they have them.
