Default Poll: 66 Percent of GOP Think #MeToo Has Gone Too Far

I felt the same weeks ago... What about you?


Poll: 66 Percent of GOP Think #MeToo Has Gone Too Far

Tim Marcin 1 day ago.

The #MeToo movement has shown no signs of slowing, especially amid the recent confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh despite an allegation of sexual assault. But a large portion of Republicans think the women's movement has already gone too far, according to a new poll released this week.

The survey from The Economist/YouGov asked, "Do you think the #metoo movement against sexual harassment," and respondents could choose among four answers, "has gone too far," "has been about right," "has not gone far enough" and if respondents are "not sure."

I'm not Republican, and I have mixed emotions about the MeToo movement. On the one hand, I can relate to the sexual harassment women face since I have experienced it on multiple occasions, and I think it is good to get this common problem out into the open. On the other hand, this movement has morphed on the left into the unjust premise that every woman who claims harassment must be believed and the accused man is automatically guilty, even absent any proof. This is VERY wrong, and that has gone too far.

This saddens me salty.. As without any proof one's life can be destroyed.. By these women seeking their 15 minutes of glory.

By their standard every male over 14 is a sex taker. as some of us listened to mothers.. Respect others. And always have tried to follow her advice..

Part of the problem is that all it takes is putting a #metoo on your statement.
There is no real appreciation for how many people who support the movement actually believe in the various things that get a #metoo tacked onto it.

Think of it like Christianity and all the people who claim to be Christian and to represent Christ and how various people get more visibility than they deserve "representation" to the group.
Fred Phelps was a deplorable human and the vast majority of Christians would say he did NOT represent them. But he ran around with Bible verses and proclaiming he was Christian.

Quite frankly, I have quite a few friends who are "on the left" and who support the #metoo movement.
NONE of them have ever tried to proclaim the type of extreme stuff I've heard like every woman who accuses should automatically be believed or that every accused man is automatically guilty ...
(And for the record, I don't ascribe to that mentality either)

I wonder why a movement to end sexual assault/harassment would name themselves "pound me too".
