Here is the article:
While I agree that the joke was uncalled for, did you read the last line of the article? Something about #metoo bashers discouraging women from getting treatment. Huh?
What does treatment have to do with sexual harassment? Treatment FOR sexual harassment? This is not what the #metoo movement is about. It’s about speaking up. Saying it happened to you, too.
I was harmed, too, raped also, and am a victim of medical malpractice. Do I owe it to the world, or to myself, to get treatment for this?
Or, rather, does the #metoo movement encourage me to speak out? It does! The movement empowers women and allows for that dialogue. There is a huge difference here. Do you see the disconnected logic?
I don’t owe it to anyone, especially myself, to submit myself to a psychiatric label and brainwashing because I was harmed. This is so illogical. If anyone should be “treated” it should be those that commit such harms, and our “sick society” if you are to buy into that metaphor.
Do I owe it to anyone to be silent about medical malpractice because speaking of it will “discourage others from getting treatment”? Am I deprived of a voice because there’s no #metoo movement for people harmed by psychiatry and its ilk?
How about this? The perps owe me an apology, which I am not likely to get. This, to me, is the logical conclusion. Realistically speaking, though, no one owes a darned thing to anyone. Let’s leave this owing bit to the banks, and end it there.
