Automatically believing the accuser is to prejudge the accused without considering their testimony or evidence.

  1. I agree that the MeToo movement, while powerful and important, has the potential for abuse, and has in fact been abused already. This line from your article summed it up perfectly: “The MeToo movement risks becoming a witch hunt with innocent men being burned at the stake.” I often read that one of the greatest fears of male teachers is false accusations of sexual harassment. Such a charge, even if untrue, could at the least retard a man’s career. As the case is, I don’t believe that accusations of sexual harassment by women against men receive as much attention or are regarded as seriously. It’s a double standard.
