On gender, candidates in the Trump era negotiate a changed landscape
Chief National Correspondent
“Since Trump and his appeal to toxic masculinity, and then the response to that in the form of #MeToo, there’s been a shift,” says Erin Cassese, an associate professor of political science at West Virginia University whose research focuses on gender in politics.

#MeToo: Seal in hot water after taking on Oprah and “Hollywood hypocrisy”
Seal, who has come out in support of the #MeToo movement, is now under investigation for sexual battery after a former neighbour accused him of forcing himself on her in 2016.
This came after the singer launched an attack on Oprah Winfrey and her status as one of the leading advocates for the anti-sexual harassment initiative Time’s Up.
After Blasting Oprah, #MeToo Comes For 'Seal
Singer "Seal" may be on his way to kissing a rose on the grave of his career if the allegations of sexual battery against him turn out to be credible. Either that or a #MeToo conspiracy is brewing.
Just days after blasting the newly crowned #MeToo queen Oprah for her alleged complicity regarding Harvey Weinstein, the #MeToo movement has come to claim the head of the "Crazy" singer.
Not a good look for the Me Too.
Will they go after any man that comes forward with some truth.
A MeToo conspiracy is brewing.
That’s white women, and Oprah acting/being powerful.
Revenge is why some women can’t handle power.
White women are vengeful.
Trying to ruin men’s careers.
This movement is getting crazy. The title is proof they went for Seal. What male celebrity will be next, as serial rapist, date rapist etc, are free to rape, as long as there is no harassment.
Clarence Thomas Sexually Harassed Me. Yes, He Should Be Impeached
... In the fall of 1991, when the Senate was considering Thomas's nomination to the Supreme Court, Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he made sexually explicit comments and unwanted sexual advances when she worked for him at both the Department of Education and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But 27 years after Thomas's confirmation, Abramson, seeking to ride the #MeToo wave, tries to resuscitate these long-debunked allegations against Thomas.

#METOO has become another weapon in the war that White Feminists have against the Patriarchy (White Men). They don't really care about what is happening to women of color, because their battle was never about the uplifting of all women. Their battle is about who will be in charge of White Supremacy , White women or White men. Women of color are just foot soldiers and acceptable casualties in their war. Keep in mind that many of those White women using #METOO also voted for Trump. 53% of the total votes by White Women went to Trump.
Women Around the World Warn of the Excesses of the #MeToo Movement
- Julia Hartley-Brewer: The #MeToo “hashtag claims to be about empowering women to speak out when actually it is turning women into perpetual victims.
- Faith Moore: #MeToo “is a betrayal of the women who’ve actually been raped or assaulted.”

The survivors in Hollywood become heroes while the black girls of Compton and the black girls living in the West End of Atlanta and the black girls in Hyde Park in Chicago are faceless and nameless.

MEET THE WOMEN WORRIED ABOUT #METOO
I am concerned that we are throwing knee-touching into the same basket as rape, which does a grievous disservice to mere knee-touchers and rape victims both.

Germaine Greer says women 'spread legs' for Weinstein movie roles
Iconic feminist Germain Greer has stunned fans by saying it's too late for women who "spread their legs" for Harvey Weinstein movie roles to start "whingeing."
The 78-year-old spoke out about her distaste for the #MeToo movement, railing at actresses who say Harvey Weinstein assaulted them.
"If you spread your legs because he said 'be nice to me and I'll give you a job in a movie' then I'm afraid that's tantamount to consent, and it's too late now to start whingeing about that," Greer explained, before being honoured as Australian of the Year.
She then added that "in the old days" women would "slap down" men who were assaulting or harassing them.
