I've been wanting to ask this but nervous to do so, on here. It all started with Harvey Weinstein and it was a domino effect after that and they all came crashing down. I think it's horrible that people of power think they can get away with anything and that the victims think their careers will be over if they tell anyone. It's all very sad and horrible that there's been so many of them.
However, I now feel it's becoming a runaway train and guys at random are now getting accused and frankly that's a little scary. Most recent is Michael Douglas and James Franco. I just feel like people want to take down every male that's famous and make them a pervert, when they are not. Like I said, it's a little scary how many guys being accused everyday.
It's also effects us regular folk because I saw an article on MSN about women afraid to raise sons because of all the sexual misconduct. One women even takes her 3 year old son to conferences about sexual misconduct and how it's wrong, he's 3! I just feel it's getting out of hand now. The curtain was lifted and now it won't go back down.
What do you think?

I dunno. I think it's good that people are being investigated and it's making people think about how they treat folks and all, but there will always be opportunists who could use it as a chance to get back at someone in spite. I've been falsely accused of such things before and I can't say I celebrate the innocent people being investigated, it really disrupts your life and that reputation stains you even if you're proven innocent, there's always that seed of doubt, but overall I think it's good. I don't think I know a single person who hasn't been harassed or assaulted so I can only imagine how much worse things must be for powerful and rich people who know they can get away with it. Look at the guy playing the Phantom in the current run of Phantom of the Opera (assuming he's not changed since a few months back) convicted of sexually assaulting a minor, banned for a time, but now he's back like nothing happened. It'll cause disruption for a while but it's a complex problem. I think it'll come out with an overall positive outcome.2
