The downside and excesses of the “Me-Too” Movement

Dear Editor:

A recent unfortunate experience that I had with a friendship that I tried to develop with a woman brought to mind something that conservative-Republican Fox News host Tucker Carlson writes about in his recent book. While I disagree with 95 percent of his conservative-Republican political views, I think he is spot-on correct and accurate when he observes that women of today seem to dislike and distrust men much more so than they did in the past.

I attribute a lot of it to the downside and excesses of the “Me-Too” sexual harassment movement.

While I was as happy as anyone to see it come onto the scene (as I myself was sexually harassed by a female college professor when I was 25 years old), I believe that an unfortunate result of it has been that a lot more women believe that no man can be trusted, and they are overly-suspicious of all men, even the good ones, who do exist and who they really can trust, believe in, and have faith in.
