One thing that many people do miss in the "metoo" movement is the scale of atrociousness.  People who do make a mistake are often lumped in with Cosby.  That's unfair.

I agree.  It all depends on context.  People like Cosby and Weinstein are obviously monsters who literally prey on people and don't deserve forgiveness.  I support #metoo, but what bothers me is when people are fired on simply an allegation of , say, one incident by one or maybe 2 people.  That's not fair.  It should at least me investigated.  Innocent until proven guilty, so investigations should be done if it's not obvious.  Have a dozen accusers come out seems obvious enough to fire a person before a full investigation or trial is complete i would think, especially if some of them have evidence to back it up, like texts or whatever.

When you fire a person for one unproven accusation then it turns into a witch-hunt or ultra-PC territory.  The current US Supreme Court nominee was accused of some kind of sexual assault like 36 years ago when he was 17.  That needs to be put in context, you can't treat him like Cosby.  But they grill him and people like him, but then someone like Trudeau who had an alleged sexual assault incident people are willing to turn a blind eye.
I queef, therefore I am.
