Seen this #metoo# on a few FB pages i follow. The number of women who have had a #metoo# experience is just staggering. Some, but not many, have stated their or just one experience, most don’t want to go into details. Many because it happened when they were young teens (some even younger) and they didn’t understand what happened, and they don’t want to revisit the experience realising now what went on.
As a man it’s not easy to always understand the effects of these experiences on a woman’s life, but men have to start listening and supporting women in their fight to stop men being abusive before things will ever change

    @Dave Doyle: Thanks for acknowledging this Dave. It’s pandemic. I had four seperate incidents happen to me between the age of 11 and 14 by three seperate people. I can’t even describe how those experiences made me feel at the time or in the years after, only that I felt terrified, vunerable and alone. The feelings go much deeper and certainly effected me for years. I retreated into myself and fell into 15 years of depression! It saddens me that men on here are still taking it lightly that women from their childhood have been subjected to sexual advances from men and most often much older men. It’s sad that men are turning this on victims and trying to discredit their experiences. So thank you Dave.
