    The last person had a good point. We need to also acknowledge how sexual harassment against men is never taken seriously, and how men are far less likely to report it.
    Edit: Wow, this comment got liked by Vox and 500 people. Thanks!

    I was groped by a teacher in the 8th grade. I didn't tell anyone for years until the #MeToo movement came up and I was discussing it with a friend (who had posted a #MeToo post to her facebook). When I asked her if I should post a MeToo post as well she became upset and accused me of lying about my experience. She hasn't talked to me in close to a year and I never made the post, for fear of other women reacting like her, because males apparently can't be sexually harassed.

    While I do agree that sexual harassment/assault is important, I have to say that asking women about MeToo isn't exactly representative of the problems it has.
    Right now in the MeToo movement, you can be a celebrity and accuse another person of sexually assaulting you, and the public will not just support you, but believe you. And there's an important difference in that, because when you believe instead of support, you've already made up your mind about who's guilty and who's not.
    Condemning people to lose their careers, without a trial, or evidence, or even mutable accusations (that kind of serves as evidence on it's own) throws the whole idea of a fair trial by jury where "__the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies_" is thrown out by mob rule by the biased sways of the public where weather you're guilty or not depends on the most tense game of he-said-she-said ever played.

    I think, since girls at a very young age are told to act right, dress right etc etc, by concerned mothers who just want to keep their child safe, when something does happen, they feels maybe it's their fault and they somehow didn't do enough to keep themselves safe. That's why so many of those incidents go unreported.

    Everybody agrees with the message, but this video fails to address the main issue with MeToo: it's trial by public opinion

    Im a guy and ever since I was 17 girls have "sexually harrassed" me but I consider it flirting. Sometimes I get the feeling that movements like this blur the line between the two.

    Men cannot report as well. Men are often indoctrinated to be tough, so they take horrible experiences as something to be overcome as a man rather than speaking up against. In many cases, people do not take seriously when men are harassed or abused. Of course, mistreatment of women is unjustifiable, but we also have to acknowledge unequal treatments that men could get in their lives.

    the first thing wrong on this video right away, #MeToo isn't supposed to be a women focus problems but "sexual harassment" problem. Men are supposed to be included too, but mass media, feminists, & disappointingly Vox too are swaying/sabotaging it to an "exclusive for woman" thing.

    I walked to my seat on the bus once and a person said "wow, you are hot" and touched my leg. I ran out feeling sexually assaulted. I am a man by the way.
    Edit: for the people who did not understand this joke. I said this to show how you can not even tell someone they are hot anymore without facing a public backlash.

    From the article : "In a nationally representative sample of 2,511 women around the country,"
    You forgot to put the size of your samples in the statistics of the video. This kind of oversight could unfortunately be used to discredit this important video :S
    (thanks the video. Every testimony is important. It is a worldwide problem which needs to be condamned.)

    Thanks for doing a piece on the #metoo movement, I'm sure a lot of people appreciate it. It helps keep the discussion of the problem going, negative or positive.

    if you actually listen to the people around you as a man and they trust you.. you hear stuff you wish wasn't real.
    i'll support the metoo movement but i don't think it's gonna solve all that much i'm afraid.

    MeToo has already been commandeered by the mob and lost its integrity.

    That's good. But this really isn't enough anymore. Men can't fix these awful Marxist tools meant to manufacture division. Declare yourself not aligned to feminism and lynch mob carousels like MeToo. Women can't stay silent anymore, because men alone will not be heard. Condemn feminism. Condemn MeToo.
    We aren't just men and women. Rationality is unisex. If anything should connect us, it's opposition to these hate-fueling machinations. To preserve and fight for a functional, modern Western democracy is a burden for both genders.

    So they took their OWN survey and made a video about it claiming it as UNBIASED 😂
