Do you remember a few months ago when Ashley Judd posted a frantic video to Facebook because a man called her “sweetheart?”
In a day and age when calling someone “sweetheart” prompts an unstable woman to film herself decrying “everyday sexism,” we’ve completely lost all perspective.
Ashley is one of the faces of the MeToo movement celebrated as Time Magazine’s so-called “Person of the Year.”
Given that, it’s hardly surprising that this MeToo movement has spiraled out of control.
This is the issue I have with all of these “I’m a Victim too!” fads that come tumbling along.
Everybody wants to glom on to MeToo – even if the worst that happened to them was being complimented by a man – or hooted at on the street.
When I lived in Chicago back in the 90s, it was not uncommon for Hispanic men to shout out sexually suggestive things as I passed them by.
It was irritating to be sure.
