Title: A male backlash against #MeToo is brewing

Men are scared, and feminists are delighted. But the urge to call out and punish male sexual transgression is bound to clash with an inescapable truth: We’re all in this together, men and women.

Consider what’s happening in the capital of Florida. Female staffers and lobbyists have found “many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately,” reported The Miami Herald. “I had a senator say, ‘I need my aide here in the room because I need a chaperone,’ ” lobbyist Jennifer Green told the paper. “I said, ‘Senator, why do you need a chaperone? . . . Do you feel uncomfortable around me?’ ‘Well,’ he said, ‘anyone can say anything with the door shut.’ ”

“I’m getting the feeling that we’re going back 20 years as female professionals,” said Green, who owns her company. “I fully anticipate I’m going to be competing with another firm that is currently owned by some male, and the deciding factor is going to be: ‘You don’t want to hire a female lobbying firm in this environment.’ ”

This kind of thinking is catching on in aggressively P.C. Silicon Valley, where men are taking to message boards like Reddit to express interest in sex segregation — sometimes labeled “Men Going Their Own Way,” or the “Man-o-Sphere.” How will that work out for women in the tech industry, where they already face substantial challenges?

Across industries, “Several major companies have told us they are now limiting travel between the genders,” Johnny Taylor, president of the Society for Human Resource Management, told the Chicago Tribune, citing execs who tell men not to go on business trips or share rental cars with women co-workers. UCLA psychologist Kim Elsesser, the author of “Sex and the Office,” sees a nascent “sex partition.” If men start to back away from women, at least in professional settings, it’s difficult to see how that will aid the feminist cause.

As is characteristic of movements led by the left in general, #MeToo faces the prospect of being seen to push too far, too fast. Not long ago, the British magazine The Spectator depicted the cause a feminist Reformation, with a modern woman nailing her demands to the door of a church like Martin Luther. These days the entirely justified anger and calls for change are venturing into iconoclasm: Let’s knock over some innocent statues and shatter all those stained-glass windows!

Outraged feminists triggered by “Thérèse Dreaming,” a suggestive 1938 painting of a clothed pubescent girl by the Polish-French artist Balthus, demanded the Metropolitan Museum of Art remove it. (The Met refused, to its credit). Moms are dressing their sons in humiliating “the Future is Female” T-shirts. The women’s Web site Bustle banned the word “flattering” because it implies there’s an ideal shape for a woman, and we all know women aren’t interested in looks.

Companies are firing perverts and sexual harassers, which is great, but those who can’t find any bad behavior to punish are casting around angrily looking for random things to attack. Jordan Peterson, the University of Toronto professor and author of the bestseller “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos” who has become a YouTube sensation by rebutting crazy left-wing students, has been lambasted on social media for citing sociological studies that say women are more agreeable in the workplace and suffer some salary repercussions because of it. Although this is essentially a restatement of the thinking behind “Lean In” — if you want it, push for it — Peterson found himself being subjected to an absurdly hostile interview by British broadcaster Cathy Newman in a confrontation that went viral and led to more abuse being heaped on Peterson.

Writing in The American Interest, Claire Berlinski calls the #MeToo movement “a frenzied extrajudicial warlock hunt that does not pause to parse the difference between rape and stupidity” and “a classic moral panic, one that is ultimately as dangerous to women as to men.” She tells a story about how she just discovered she has a new power: the power to ruin the career of a professor she knew at Oxford who grabbed her butt 20 years ago while drunk at a party. “I was amused and flattered,” she writes, saying, “I knew full well he’d been dying to do that. Our tutorials — which took place one-on-one with no chaperones — were livelier intellectually for that sublimated undercurrent. He was an Oxford don and so had power over me . . . But I also had power over him — power sufficient to cause a venerable don to make a perfect fool of himself at a Christmas party. Unsurprisingly, I loved having that power.”

Reformers should keep her underlying point in mind: Change may be good, but be wary of unintended consequences. Turning men and women into hostile opposing camps is not going to be good for either sex.

“I fully anticipate I’m going to be competing with another firm that is currently owned by some male, and the deciding factor is going to be: ‘You don’t want to hire a female lobbying firm in this environment.’ ”

And this will extend to other positions. Hire a female and you're hiring future litigation. Why risk losing key male upper management to unsubstantiated accusations?

The same is true with blacks and gays. You're asking for trouble.

I think they aren't going to be happy with the results.

Men have an incentive never to be alone with women in the workplace or away from it.

In many businesses, they might not want to be alone with gay men either.

Only an idiot would hire a known faggot. I would never ever hire a faggot. If one tried to force me I'd put it out of its misery?

You probably don't need to worry about it all that much.

As primed by the Secular Humanist cult of Dem-Commies and NWO globalists. This BS did not start in a vacuum.

OPERATION: Chaos and Anarchy via "Divide & Conquer" has bore them much fruit. The future is bleak, guaranteed to require a "One World Government" to supposedly get it under control.

Isn't it amazing that this meme, this narrative of a "War on Women" was begun by Democrats as a War on Republicans -- but only truly became pandemic when Hollywood's whores complained that they were being exploited and abused by it's liberal Democrat brethren Big Wigs. Oh, the irony.

Now Johnny will be hauled into court 40 years after first pulling on Mary's pigtails in 4th grade back in 1968. OR a "#ME TOO!" will emerge 30 years later, smearing a Pubbie running for Senator. OH WAIT...

Especially since they have finagled "Hate Crime" legislation as immunity from being punched in the face.

West Coast socializing will be especially fraught with apprehension, fear, and legal minefields. It's already a Progressive Nightmare.

Maybe it's the Robotic Doll industry lobbyists behind this conspiracy...

What do you mean turning, There are opposing camps, let a woman get in charge of an organisation and you will find key positions are quickly filled by women. Women are discriminatary and there is no evidence they are better managers than men

A little update from HotAir today:

The law of unintended consequences appears to be paying a visit to the #MeToo movement. A new survey indicates that male professionals are now significantly more unwilling to take on the role of mentor for female colleagues, hold one-on-one meetings with them or meet with women after hours and outside the workplace. While this was predicted early on by some, this is the first tangible evidence that it’s already happening. (Fortune)
One of the unintended consequences of the #MeToo movement seems to be the alienation of male mentors.

A new set of findings from women’s empowerment non-profit LeanIn.Org and online survey platform SurveyMonkey reveal that, since the media reports of sexual harassment first emerged last fall, male managers are three times as likely to say they are uncomfortable mentoring women and twice as uncomfortable working alone with a woman. The hesitation to meet with women outside of work is even more pronounced: Senior men were 3.5 times more likely to hesitate having a work dinner with a junior female colleague than a male one–and five times more likely to hesitate to travel for work with a junior woman.

So this is coming from a non-profit group, and their founder, Sheryl Sandberg, is already raising the alarm, saying this will lead to the isolation and “icing out” of female professionals. So how do you fight against something like this? With a hashtag, of course. So keep an eye out for #MentorHer on social media this week because that’s apparently going to solve everything. . . .

women have long used the bargaining chip of sexual harassment, but reality has to kick in. As a manager, any time I had a problem it was with a female, I wasn't there to stroke their frail egos, or fulfil their agendas
