Maybe he's smart enough to realize it would just bring up the 13 women who have accused him of sexual assault/harassment.

We've got a whole new sexual revolution happening and hopefully it creates some change.

I don't jump on bandwagons so #MeToo never appeared on my Facebook timeline(s) but yeah, me too. In fact I do not know anyone I grew up with that was not sexually harassed either by boys close to our age or by grown men. They no doubt would laugh and say that was not sexual harassment. Yeah, it was and it continued most of my life. I mean it still does, not so much in person as online but news flash - when someone is ignoring and walking away from what you are saying it is because your words, looks, touches are making them uncomfortable and why don't we say anything? Because it does no good. Anyone that does this does not get it when you tell them Stop, you are making me uncomfortable so either they ridicule / laugh at you or worse get angry and do. not. let. it. go. It's one thing when that is "random stranger in a bar" it's another when it is a boss or coworker. I remember looking at my boss's wife and baby daughter and thinking how badly I wanted to say "Your husband is a pig" but never did.

I would now, but would I today if I were that same 18 year old? I don't know. I'd like to think so especially with all the dialogues these Hollyweird types have invoked but while there are scores of us vocally saying ENOUGH! online, it's just one girl on her own trying to make the right decisions.

Hear, hear.

I've been harassed by random strangers, but never by anyone I worked with (thankfully.) I know what I'd say and do to them today, but when I was 20? Not sure - but I hope I would have told them to go f* themselves, and reported them to hell and gone. But I was lucky - I have always had family support I could rely on if I needed to. I could have quit any job, and not starved, and I wasn't tied into a profession that demanded I put up with crap. (Like many scientists and entertainers are, where there's just a small industry.)
