You and I could go back and forth about different #MeToo outcomes. I’d provide examples of career destruction, (Al Franken) you’d find examples of people whose careers weren’t ruined (Louis CK). But that’s not the point. The point is the perception of the movement, and if the perception is that it’s a tsunami that sweeps up everyone in its wake, then it will not be taken seriously. And that would be a very bad outcome, specifically for women who are being harassed at work. If a harasser can simply dismiss her allegations as simply “just another #MeToo” allegation, we are in big trouble.
