The biggest threat to all of the entertainment industry. #MeToo? More like #F*ckToo

"Be compassionate but be skeptical. There are people who desperately want a #MeToo movement in video games. Be especially skeptical of their claims. They've made false allegations before." - Brad Glasgow[1]

The #MeToo Accusation Scandal was an ongoing movement where women (and sometimes men) on Twitter and social media have accused over 80 celebrities and people of sexual assault, rape, and other misconduct. Most of these accusations are false. It has been ongoing since 2017.

Start

Trouble on Twitter started on October 15th, 2017 when actress Alyssa Milano suggested that victims of sexual misconduct write "me too" as a reply to her tweet in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment accusations. Eventually, the #MeToo bandwagon started. The bandwagon consists of users banding together to accuse random celebrities of misconduct, with 80% of the claims reportedly being false. The tweet went viral, getting 25k likes and 13k retweets in a single day.

There have been reports of worries that some accusations are false. As of now, although some have acknowledged the scandal, the trend is still ongoing. Many targets included Harvey Weinstein.

Why This Movement is Rotten

  1. Some people have been falsely accused of misconduct. It almost seems like some people are accused in a way of sport or just wild mass guessing. There are even rumors that the trend could become a "witch-hunt".
    • Some people even lost their jobs or have been treated poorly due to being one of the targets.
  2. It has become too viral and when a movement gets too big, bad apples such as scammers are sure to pop up.
  3. Talking about how big the movement is, many supporters of the movement have the cult-like mentality.
  4. Many people in the movement place the blame for sexual misconduct on all men as a group, as opposed to the small minority of men and women who actually commit it.
  5. Most of the victims of either real or fake sexual harassment make poor examples being one, like not taking criticism.
  6. Some Social Justice Warriors and Radical feminists use this as an opportunity to encourage “listen and believe” and “guilty until proven innocent” mentality.
  7. The movement has caused men to become (if possible) even more wary of women and unwilling to work with them, which can bring potential harm to workplace diversity and efficiency. Some women even fear that they will lose job opportunities because they have less chance to showcase their work to their bosses.
  8. The biggest issue of the movement is that it takes place on social media, therefore enabling anyone to make any accusation, with or without proof. This is made even worse by the fact that being so much as accused of being a harasser (or worse, a rapist) can severely damage one's reputation.
  9. It equates legitimate injustices like rape and sexual assault with much more minor actions that may or may not be perceived as sexual misconduct.
  10. Many members of the movement are angry at male survivors for trying to add their own voices into the movement, which they allege to be intended primarily for women. They have also reacted with anger when men tried to create separate hashtags like #HimToo and #MenToo, which they view as "derailing".
  11. It helps certain authoritarian nations such as China (where Twitter is mostly banned and censorship in social media is rampant) create false pretenses that their own country has a lower MeToo presence (and therefore fewer sexual misconducts) due to their “superior education and culture".
  12. Italian actress Asia Argento, one of the founders, was involved in sexual misconduct, making it an ironic movement (although she denied the accusations). Another co-founder had to leave due to her own son being accused of sexual misconduct.
  13. It forces the "guilty until proven innocent" presumption instead of the "innocent until proven guilty", with the former being more likely of causing a wrong verdict, especially if the accused truly is innocent and the accuser is falsifying evidence to get free money. Worth noting that it is also a denial of an international human right under the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11. It basically is an "end justifies the means", which is also untrue.
  14. It is very hypocritical when it comes to presidential candidate Joe Biden, who many MeToo advocates defended when he was met with sexual misconduct allegations despite their refusal to defend other accused men. This showcases the movement's political motives.
    • Ironically enough, Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., and D. C. Douglas are all Democrats as well (Douglas even advocated for this movement especially against Kavanaugh and Mignogna), which led to the "male feminist turns out to be a sexual predator" archetype.
    • Like Biden, Douglas was also defended by MeToo advocates if for no reason other than his sociopolitical views.
      • While Biden at least apologized, Douglas, on the other hand, refuses to admit his behavior, yet many MeToo advocates support him.
  15. It led to Alec Holowka committing suicide after Zoë Quinn accused him of assault. Her one tweet led to the creators of Night in the Woods cutting ties with him, a game he was working on getting canceled, and him being blacklisted from the video game industry in general without any shred of actual evidence.
  16. It gives shame to actual and innocent victims of sexual abuse and misconduct, as well as women in general.
  17. Because of the MeToo movement, it makes men not want to date women (Henry Cavill even said he was afraid to enter a relationship after the movement started) and it creates more incels, thus causing more harm than good.
  18. Wade Robson and James Safechuck made false rape allegations about Michael Jackson in the form of the documentary, Leaving Neverland in 2019. Although there was little evidence of their claims, they still successfully defamed Michael Jackson. As a result, his songs were pulled from some radio stations, the Simpsons removed the episode "Stark Raving Dad" from prime time TV, and his memorabilia has been removed from shops.
  19. Referring to Point 17 and Point 1, it has ruined and defamed the careers of many celebrities, guilty and innocent of sexual misconduct.
    • The celebrities will have their memorabilia, portraits, work, and other merchandise removed from some shops and studios.
    • Celebrities will most likely lose their jobs.
    • Many people and even companies in some cases will turn against them.
    • And worse of all, it can lead to suicide (like Alec Holowka) or imprisonment.
  20. It deludes actual victims into thinking all accused parties are automatically guilty, like how Corina Boettger, a voice actress and victim of abuse by Orion Acaba, still thinks Vic Mignogna and Todd Haberkorn are guilty.
  21. A leaked email suggests that some people will only falsely accuse celebrities of monetary gain and absolutely nothing else, which, again, also looks bad on actual victims!
  22. A few companies made very poor decisions for The MeToo Movement.
    • The worst offender was Sony's Censorship Policy. Sony, in the response to MeToo, censored many video games on the PlayStation 4 (Most of them were Japanese Games) that had aspects of nudity to keep children safe from them. Ironically enough, they still allow Western games, such as The Last of Us Part II, to have elements of nudity and other adult themes.
    • PornHub (Insert Text About the Credit/Debit Card Removal Update or Deciding Towards TraffickingHub)
  23. One of the organizations that support the MeToo movement, Time's Up, has spent most of their donations, which were to be used to help victims of sexual harassment, to pay to salaries of their executives.
  24. At best, this movement only provides Obsessive Anti-SJWs, Incels, Alt-right, and extreme conservatives more fuel to drive their bias against liberalism, Democrats, feminism, left-wing movements, and social justice. At worst, it only gave Social Justice Warriors, 3rd wave feminists, and actual sexual attackers more power and influence over the media.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It gave people a chance to stand up against misconduct, especially in certain fields such as finance.
  2. It helped unveiled information of many sexual harassers, such as Tyler Malka.
  3. They do have some common sense of not supporting Amber Heard in the trial on Johnny Depp showing that they do have standards.[2]
  4. Some people in the movement at least admit they lied later on, like Robbie Daymond's accuser.
  5. It also helps in countries where far more rapes are unreported like Sub-Saharan Africa, Papua New Guinea, South Asia (especially India), and Muslim-majority countries.

Reception

The MeToo movement has been met with polarizing reactions. Many people support MeToo and Timesup in order to call out powerful men in business and Hollywood. However it has also been accused of allowing dishonest women to accuse innocent men of something they never did either for revenge, attention or even financial gain.

MeToo Movement. A movement gone wrong. From falsely accusing someone of rape, to leading someone into suicide. I have no words that can describe disgust for this so called witch-hunt "movement".

I would be careful about Trump and Brett Kavanaugh being considered a false rape accusation. If only because a suprising number of woman accused Trump, perhaps at least 20.

Trump backed news might be trying to cover it up. Secondly, why should I believe the accusations are false with the Hollywood Access tape that even a surprising number fellow Republicans withdrew support for him.

If a surprising number of Republican end up exposing the sexual assault allegations as actually true, maybe this wiki page might end up having to reconsider the allegations against Trump as false.

Maybe there is a reason millennial women have fallen out of the GOP. Yeah, don't let prominent ones fool you. There is actual evidence of millennial women alliance for the GOP has declined since Trump was backed by the GOP. If you don't even do the research or provide counter-evidence and you have a hateboner for anything that the left or the media does, your arguments are going to backfire badly. The same even applies to Gamergate. If someone you disagree with provides you with evidence and you can't provide counter-evidence, its going to backfire. Remember when EA got questioned by government for loot boxes and they claimed they disagreed there was evidence? It is the same thing for just about anyone. This wiki page is possibly going to shut down like Atrocious YouTubers. If Republicans, particularly Trump supporters end up admitting they were in denial about sexual assault allegations. Unfortunately, too many anti-sjws act like they there should be no outward response to anything right-wingers say or do. There are ones who might be trying to normalize white supremacists and demonize conservatives who disagree with them.

Ben7889, It is still unconfirmed that Trump is or is not a sexual harasser, so we all don't know if the people who called him out are lying or not. I do find it suspicious that the allegations were spread out while Trump was president. Because of that, I find it hard to think that the allegations were either true or an attempt to kick him out of power. It would have been more believable if the women accused spread out the accusers sooner. And I don't think that the media is backing Trump, considering that they are mostly against him these days. If the media isn't defending him, why hasn't his allegations become confirmed yet? And not all Republicans are sexual harassers, and not all democrats are sexual harassers too . But again, that is just my opinion. Sure, Trump is a womaniser, but I find it hard to believe that he had a history of sexual assault.

For me to support MeToo, the evidence against the man needs to be explosive and true. I will only support Metoo if the evidence is explosive like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby. Let's also not forget the Angry Joe fiasco that even progressives and Metoo supporters alike found to be nonsense.

What the #MeToo movement think they are: We are going to bring down sexual predators and everyone can join us.

What the #MeToo movement really are: Man and Conservatives are evil. However if you are sexual predators but you like our Left-Wing ideas we will defend you because we prefer a Conservative free world.

This movement is hijacked by SJWs and Radical Feminist. No wonder that the countermovement called #HimToo is born. I just want that movement to end.

while it did start of as something noble, It has since devolved into a witch hunt.

Also i mean no disrespect but a lot of false accusers are either feminists, Women seeking bad boys or just generally less than attractive women.

A few more things

This movement also benefits actresses who's careers are/were on the decline.

Thanks to the MeToo Movement Men are sadly more distrustful of women and relationships in general beacuse they know it takes just one opportunistic Feminist to destroy a mans reputation for her own selfish needs.
