What began as a movement to "out" powerful men for their heinous treatment of women has been warped into a new sexual McCarthyism. The first #metoo stories came from strong women with the courage to share their stories (often not for the first time) of sexual victimization with a public that was reluctant to listen. Then came the piggybackers, women who equated their stories of sexual harassment and catcalling with rape and assault in order to share the limelight. The discourse predictably degenerated from there. American society has made a virtue of victimhood, an identity no one should desire. Meanwhile, the #metoo movement has been coopted (as these things almost always are) to turn women against men in a classic game of divide and conquer at a time when both need to unite more than ever if we are to remove the boots of the ruling class from our necks.
