If people had a "me too" campaign for being falsely accused of sexual harassment or worse, my guess is we'd be just as surprised at who says they have but even more surprised at how few responses there'd be. And, if you think about it, the true accusations aren't in any way to blame for those false accusations. So the whole premise of this line of conversation is irrational. Let's talk about it but there's no need to bring it up in the same context; it's not a (very) related problem.

Does it make men and women more cautious that these stories come out? Make them a bit more concerned about their behaviour and worried about 'making the wrong move'? Maybe. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. Still nowhere near what we know many women and a lot of men carry every day. And, did I mention, unrelated?
