I think, possibly, that women are daring to say that our experience of harassment matters. We're making it about us! Nothing is supposed to be about us!

Emmet Till was a victim of the uncritical belief in sexual harassment accusations? I'm speechless with fury, disgust and disbelief. I didn't expect them to top referring to the "hysteria" of the Weinstein accusations, but boy, did they ever.
Yes, that. I couldn't even think what to say about the Emmet Till comparison.

And since when is complaining about somebody the equivalent of kidnapping them and torturing them to death?
