I had a conversation with some people and we saw this happening already like 3 days after the #metoo thing caught on; like the author says, the excesses are...... odd.
I am very happy there's a few places where silence used to be the norm, but are now open to conversations. I just worry if it will last. And I worry more because 'my boss/colleague proposed sex in a clumsy way' is being conflated with 'my boss told me I'd lose my job if I didn't suck his dick'. The latter is kind of how #metoo started, but the former is waaaaaaaaaay more prevalent, so drowned out most of the conversation.
And that sucks. Especially because the punishment is the same for everyone---15 minutes of dis-fame and potentially being fired---regardless of if there's any proof, or consideration for the alleged crimes.
