If you are on social media, you’ve probably seen someone with a #MeToo status. Some might share stories with their #MeToo , others might just want to add their voice to the fray. While you may have only seen women with this particular status, that is not the overall case. Men also spoke up about their experiences with assault.
If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/k2oeCiUf9n— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 15, 2017
While many celebrities spoke up;
As a male childhood rape survivor who has gone public and had so many disclose to me, I promise: any rape stat you see is low. #MeToo— Barry Crimmins (@crimmins) October 15, 2017
Me too— Anna Paquin (@AnnaPaquin) October 15, 2017
Because I was shamed and considered a "party girl" I felt I deserved it. I shouldnt have been there, I shouldn't have been "bad" #metoo— #EvanRachelWould (@evanrachelwood) October 16, 2017
Alexis Benveniste also left us with a powerful thought.
Reminder that if a woman didn't post #MeToo, it doesn't mean she wasn't sexually assaulted or harassed. Survivors don't owe you their story.— Alexis Benveniste (@apbenven) October 16, 2017
For anyone who has shared their #MeToo story over the past few days, and even to the ones who will never.. know that MRL stands with you.
