Trump Pastor Claims Women Sexually Assault Men By Dressing Provocatively

Alyssa Milano

Two words with more power behind them than most of the words posted in the entirety of that evening.

In light of the extensive allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of producer, Harvey Weinstein, many victims are also deciding to go public via protests and rallies.

Each of those stories just makes me sad and angry.

Hannah Price, founder of Revolt Sexual Assault, told Sky News she made a decision to launch the campaign after enduring sexual harassment while at university. Suggested by a friend: "If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too.' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem".

Most women, I'm sure, are not even remotely surprised at the number of women (and even some men) who have come forward to say that they, too, have been victimized.

For instance, when a good friend recently tagged me in a Facebook post instructing me to post seven black-and-white photos of my life over the course of seven days with no people, no animals and no explanations, I briefly considered it before realizing that I never meant to participate. We need to wake up and face the possibility, and in some cases the likelihood, that these abusers are just as intimately involved in our lives as the men and women of whom they have taken advantage.

"My opinion on the "Me Too" movement, is that I'm glad that someone, even though it started 10 years ago, I'm glad that someone is actually out there spreading awareness about sexual abuse", said sophomore, Kassie Burton. But when did generalizing men as a whole ever become the solution to it?

It is only by acknowledging the fact that sexual assault is something that we come into contact with everyday - and that we have a responsibility to stop it - that we can end this horrific cycle, which affords its victims so much shame and pain. However, instead of generalizing men, we should encourage men to help educate the future on how to prevent such crimes from happening. We need to step up and not remain silent.

Each of us can speak out against the attitudes and behaviors of sexual harassment and violence.

The Indonesian Foreign Ministry also summoned the US ambassador in Jakarta on Monday to provide an explanation. A US State Department spokesman didn't elaborate on the embassy statement or the apology.

"This is the fifth year of the event", according to The Me Too Movement started as a project specifically for young women of color, who are especially vulnerable to sexual violence.

Why have prestigious news outlets have not picked up this story?

"Rather than "protecting" your mothers, daughters, & sisters, teach your sons, fathers, & brothers how to be better men".

Carrie's post struck a nerve for me - especially the image of a vehicle slowing to wait for her to catch up to it - because, well, #MeToo. Some students say that their female classmates have joined in on the movement through Facebook to bring awareness to their personal story or to just say that they are there for the people who have been impacted in sexual harassments and assaults. It could be the first time that millions of victims around the world feel their own stories of sexual assault can progress a once-taboo conversation and possibly finally bestow a societal conscience on this topic. "Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling and attempted rape".

"What I hope is that as we go into the next legislative session, that there's increased interest in sexual violence and harassment prevention", Bitton said.

"I knew that I wanted something like this on campus", she said. "But they can't do it alone".

Sarah Sherrod, secretary of YWCA at WSU, said a great way for men to combat sexual assault is to speak to each other.

Local resources are available for victims. Although this statistics seem to point fingers at men, this does not mean all men to blame. Though it is most likely that it will happen to a woman - that it has already happened to a woman you know - it can happen to anyone. They tend to yell things like, "Run, Forrest, run!" and then drive off, satisfied with their cleverness, as if you've never heard that cliché before (thanks, Tom Hanks). If you choose to post because you feel it will help you and those around you, that's okay.

If we do that, maybe we no longer will need a slogan like #metoo. However, how you respond to them will. One thing that's constantly overlooked is the idea that women can sexually assault men, too.
