17. Yes, and prepare for the media to muddy what should be the long-needed reckoning...

by missing the point and turning this into some sort of grotesque horserace/scorekeeping phenomenon.

What we're not going to get is a thoughtful reflection on the abuse of power and privilege by males in society, but rather a feeding frenzy of allegations that ignores any nuance regarding circumstances and relative severity of offense.

"Well John X, you have harsh words for John Y, whose been accused by several women of physically harassing them when they were in high school, but we've just received photographic evidence that you were in a burlesque performance 15 years ago in which you grabbed another performer's butt... so you really have no moral authority! As always, all sides are equally bad!"
