Me too. I don’t know if means anything coming from a gay man but it’s happened. Multiple times.

FIRST time I was sexually assaulted I was a 6th grade crossing guard. Man pulled up and exposed himself to me. The fear was real #MeToo

It’s not flattering to be sexually harassed. It’s degrading and it’s meant to remind you that you’re worthless. No one “asks for it.” #MeToo

To all the brave women and men admitting they have been sexually harassed and assaulted, I feel and know your pain. #MeToo

Let me just cut to the chase with the #metoo trend. Dear men, nearly every woman you know has been sexually assaulted or harassed.

A well meaning mentor told me at 25 that people couldn’t handle hearing about sexual abuse and it would sink my ministry. It didn’t. #MeToo

— Beth Moore (@BethMooreLPM) October 16, 2017

And I was blamed for it.
I was told not to talk about it.
I was told that it wasn’t that bad.
I was told to get over it.

We shouldn’t have to out ourselves as survivors in order for people to grasp the magnitude of how systemic assault & harassment are. #MeToo

To all the women sharing stories of sexual assault and sexual harassment, thank you for your bravery to speak up. You are not alone. #MeToo

We wouldn’t need a #MeToo thread if it wasn’t for the commonly accepted lie that #MeToo doesn’t extend to every woman we know.

This is how we roared today: we spoke our truth. @Twitter this is power of women.
STOP online harassment or lose us!#WomenWhoRoar#MeToo

Don’t say you have a mother, a sister, a daughter…

Say you have a father, a brother, a son who can do better.
