#MeToo is doing a lot more harm than good.

When I was a teenager in Mobile, I volunteered with Teen Line, for a time.

Teen Line was a crisis line for teenagers and pre-teenagers.

One call I received was from a pre-teenage girl who revealed to me that her pastor had molested her—and was continuing to molest her, as I recall.

I encouraged her to report this to someone she knew and trusted—and I hope she did.

Just after I moved here to Pensacola, in 1998, I joined a Toastmasters chapter—the Monday Nite Toastmasters (I had been a longtime member of at least two Toastmasters chapters in Mobile).

Monday Nite Toastmasters met at Morrisons in University Mall, which was later bought out by Piccadilly.

One Monday we met at the Rape Crisis Center though.

We had a regular meeting there.

As I recall, the purpose of this was to inspire the women there—or at least inform them about Toastmasters International.

To my knowledge, all of the volunteers at the Rape Crisis Center were rape victims survivors themselves.

What surprised me most about these women was how plain they looked.

Not ugly—just plain.

I remember wondering why anyone would want to rape a woman as plain as each of these women was.

What also surprised me was how quiet these women were.

Not mousy—just quiet.

I remember wondering why anyone would want to rape a woman as quiet as each of these women was.

In 1998 and 1999, I was in my early thirties.

I didn’t yet understand that rape had nothing to do with the appearance or demeanor of the victim—that rapists preyed on the most vulnerable women, children, and men.

What I remember most about the women I met at the Rape Crisis Center, that time my Toastmasters chapter met there, is this:

None of those women resembled the loud, obnoxious, overconfident, aggressive, entitled, privileged, mindless, shallow, belligerent, self-absorbed, misandrist, wolf-crying, teasing, baiting, leftist, smartphone-addicted, social-media-addicted, pampered, game-playing, control-freaking, trigger-happy, spoiled-rotten, virtue-signaling, girls-in-women’s-bodies that make up the bulk of this #MeToo “movement.”

These #MeToo brats are harming a lot of people.

But they are probably harming legitimate victims survivors of rape and child molestation, most of all.

#MeToo is harming a lot of people.

#MeToo is doing a lot more harm than good.

    Black Lives Matter is doing a lot more harm than good, too.

    And Black Lives Matter has been doing a lot more harm than good, ever since young, spoiled, White liberals—from outside Ferguson, Missouri—got involved in it.

    White liberals have ruined Black Lives Matter.
