And here is a snippet:
I have been resisting #MeToo. I have.
For starters, I am generally pretty unenthusiastic about hashtag campaigns. Most of the time, they are just slacktivism, i.e. the false belief that posting something on social media is enough. It isn’t. Ever.
But mostly, I have resisted writing or saying anything about #MeToo because I felt men should just shut the fuck up and listen, for once.
My wife, however, reminded me that I have four million visitors to my website every year, and that I write columns and books, and that I shouldn’t be silent simply because I despise my gender (more on that in a minute), or because I don’t know what to say that has a fraction of the significance of #MeToo.
After some reflection, I decided she is right. As usual.
