To people who are laughing at, liking memes or even questioning the existence of the #metoo campaign:
Survivors don’t owe you their stories (credit: Twitter: @apbenven). But the reason they are coming forward is to highlight the fact this is not a one-off problem. It doesn’t have to happen to you or yours for you to accept that this is an issue that needs to be addressed. Sadly in this case, it *is* happening to a lot of people (men & women, alike) you know. Having to relive your worst memories, memories that you’ve spent ages burying deep down, and recovering from, is hard, to say the least. The least you can do is listen to these stories and think of ways you can help address the problem areas. This is not a new problem, it has existed for ages. The reason there’s a lot more people talking about this is ‘coz they are tired of the inaction. If there’s one takeaway from this, is think of at least one thing you’d do to mitigate this systemic issue.
