Man accuses California #MeToo leader of sexual misconduct

Article here. Excerpt:

'California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, a prominent voice in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment, announced Friday she is "voluntarily taking an immediate unpaid leave" of absence, a day after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against her.

Politico reported Thursday that two men had accused the Democratic head of the state's Legislative Women's Caucus of inappropriate behavior. 

Daniel Fierro said that a visibly intoxicated Garcia grabbed his buttocks and tried to grab his crotch after a 2014 softball game when he was a 25-year-old staffer for Assemblyman Ian Calderon.'

But wait, what if they're making it up?

No evidence, just a claim. But wait, #MeToo insists all accusations are to be believed, period. And so what if some innocent ppl get ruined in the process.

In fact according to feminist leaders, the falsely-accused can learn from the experience. It is in fact good for them.

That's settled. She needs to resign immediately. Further, to teach women a lesson, men need to start accusing high-profile women of sexual misconduct, falsely or not. In line with feminist values, even the falsely-accused are better off for it.

I say, let's do the ladies a favor. It's open season. Get out there and start accusing prominent women, female managers, politicians, entertainers. Guys in college, get together and accuse campus feminists and WST profs. Do it. Gloves are off.

One of my female profs

One of my female profs actually did make unwanted physical contact with me. She grabbed my shoulder. She apologized right after--but the irony is that she was a leftist who believed what she had just done was sexual assault. I would have reported it, but I did not want to make her angry and fail me. She had already failed me on a paper as retaliation for not subscribing to her worldview and openly challenging her assertions in class. Furthermore, I could not afford to re-take the class nor would I want to. It was one of those courses that tries to make whites and males feel like they should apologize for their existence.

This was 3.5 years ago. I guess now that I'm done my degree I could rat her out. Some of the #metoo accusations are decades old, after all. No doubt she would try to tarnish my reputation and hurt my career, however.

Interestingly enough, I was also sexually harassed by a female coworker at a job I left last November. Women really need to learn to keep their hands to themselves. How about this for a new hashtag: #HANDSOFFLADIES

Yes, contact dbl-standard

I've had women I barely know walk up to me and do things like lean on me, put their arm around my waist, etc. Today this is tantamount to rape if a man does it to a woman.

Remember, #MeToo is like feminism, its mother. It's about trucking power to women. Justice is righting wrongs, balancing out good and evil. Power is abt being able to ignore justice and do what you feel like. Feminists seek more and more power, not justice.
