Should You Be Afraid to Talk to Women?

Recently, in light of the #MeToo movement, many men have expressed concern about how to behave around women. They say they’re afraid to talk to a woman. Afraid to look at her, even. Henry Cavill blamed #MeToo for making him go back to his ex lest he be called a rapist. (Okay…) Even women have chimed in. “A man can’t even tell his female coworker she’s pretty anymore,” a woman on Facebook moaned, as though that had been her source of joy every morning at work.

How fucking disrespectful can you be.

Why do you feel the need to poke holes in someone’s story? Do you think that anyone who claims to have been robbed or assaulted is making it up for attention? Or to ruin the assailant’s career? No!
