Men in the #MeToo Era
Contrarian posted a topic in Sex and Gender IssuesAs the #MeToo movement has raised awareness about sexual harassment, assault & bullying, it's important to acknowledge that men can also be victims of false accusations. While it's essential to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions, it's equally important to ensure that innocent men are not unfairly targeted. Men can protect themselves by keeping records of communication and interactions and working with HR to prevent false accusations. I also try not to be alone in the same room with a woman, if I don't know her well. I am sorry, you want me to lie? You won't get it here, just the reality. Society must work to create a culture of respect and accountability that protects individuals from harm but also those faced with fake accusations. A more asssertive opinion: In REAL LIFE, in cases of false accusations, I recommend men should pursue legal action with the full force of the court system to clear their name and protect their reputation. When the #MeToo was in full force, seen the mob justice thinking, which shows today still. I am all for judging individual cases, but the irrationality of the mob think, that, will not stand for, regardless the cause. Myself, I grew up in a culture, where you had to respect women, maybe it was the patriarchy, that is how I grew up, but that does not mean automatically if one is a woman, the men should accept everything that comes out of one's mouth. Not in my book. Personally, in real life, it never happened to me, but if it were, I would gladly do this, the legal action, and ensure someone pays through their nose for talking nonsense. This is the only way people learn that one can NOT sabotage a movement to flex your muscles for personal vendettas.
The Idea of The Strong to Rule
Contrarian posted a topic in Moral & Ethical IssuesBelieving in the idea of the "strong to rule" can have bad consequences. It implies that only the strong should survive and that weaker individuals should be left to struggle and possibly fail. This kind of thinking is reminiscent of Adolph's dangerous ideology. One day, I was at my friend's house and noticed that his dog was having trouble climbing the stairs. My initial thought was to let the dog struggle and figure it out on his own. However, my friend had a different approach. He went down the stairs and started motioning with the dog to come up. He did this three times, and on the third try, the dog finally made it up the stairs. This experience made me think about the dangers of such thinking. While it may seem logical to let the weaker struggle and hope they make it in the brawl of life, it's important to remember that helping others is needed. The lesson learned from my friend helping the dog that day extends beyond just pets; it's a reminder that ALL HUMANS have a tendency towards this kind of thinking, and one must actively work to resist it and try to chose different approaches. It is true also, that sometimes, you need to let one figure it out by themselves, finding out when to assist seems to be the key. Sometimes too much assistance can also hurt, if one does not want to push themselves too. Timing is everything, is my estimation.
Companies should compensate for time and effort, says a so-called advocate. What is your view? Article Trending from the CBC: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/costofliving/pay-applicants-for-job-interviews-1.6592367 I do not agree with this. If someone wants the job bad enough, one should be willing to make accommodations as needed and invest time in themselves.
