Tony Robins is another celebrity to be brave enough to come out against the #metoo movement. He joins feminist Germaine Greer And Catherine Deneuve to name a few. Article here

The celebrity life coach told the audience he wasn’t “knocking the #MeToo movement,” but was “knocking victimhood.” He addressed the crowd, asking them to consider the impact of it while saying “anger is not empowerment.”

Is this a sign of the tide turning or is the tsunami of post modernism ideology unstoppable?

    Friday 13th is wear black to work day to stand up to sexual harrassment.

    Guys could have a black ribbon day since we’re generally not included in anything feminists do.

    Maybe the stale-pale-males could get out there and protest with nurses for their payrises.

    They’re the ones looking after us in hospital when we end up there more often than we like in our autumn of life.

    It’s good that some people have raised obvious concerns about #metoo. Tony Robins didn’t really come out against it but disapproved of a victimhood mentality in those contributing. Since his statement he has expressed further support for the movement and those joining that bandwagon.

    Professor Janice Fiamengo has come out with very relevant criticism of #metoo, criticizing its disregard for basic principles of justice such as the right to have allegations investigated and tested and the right to be treated as innocent until proven guilty. An anonymous internet movement encouraging all manner of dirt raking is irresponsible, divisive and essentially a hate-speech movement against men.

    The Movie Breakfast Club has come under attack.
    It portrays and normalised sexual harassment.
    It portrays and normalised sexual assualt.
    It portrays and normalised the assaulter as getting the girl in the end.

    A whole generation of humans were brainwashed.

    What’s next?

    He said nothing wrong in my opinion, he was stating a fact and when they don’t get there own way or the promotion they deserve they can do great out of a sexual harassment scandal. The world is gone mad, the pendulum has swung too far

    Thanks for your input Kyle

    There is a significant space given to a #metoo section on stuff.

    It reads like an

    Old white man bad section
    Beat the younger male generation into submission section
    This is the path to success and prosperity section
    Especially for lawyers section

    Did I miss anything?
