Double Standards and Weaponized #MeToo

Despite being conspicuously more likely to indulge in inappropriate sexual behavior, liberals have been able to weaponize the #MeToo craze thanks to the application of double standards. This has never been more obvious than when we contrast the reaction to the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford and Vanessa Tyson:

Vanessa Tyson came forward Wednesday to accuse Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her during the Democratic National Convention in Boston in 2004, saying in a statement that “What began as consensual kissing quickly turned into a sexual assault.”

Tyson, now a politics professor at Scripps College in California, says she had accompanied Fairfax to his hotel room.

That was a foolish thing to do, but she didn’t deserve to be forced to perform an obscene act.

Tyson is now represented by the same law firm as Christine Blasey Ford. Fairfax has hired the same firm that defended Brett Kavanaugh against Ford.

However, there are major differences. Tyson’s allegations are credible and specific; Ford’s were not. Liberals believed Ford, even though there is no evidence whatsoever to support her scurrilous claims and plenty to refute them. They do not appear to believe Tyson — unless they just don’t care.

No sexual assault survivors have confronted lawmakers in elevators. No protesters have waited for lawmakers at airports, and, while filming, tried to talk to them about sexual assault. No women have donned the Pilgrim-esque “Handmaid’s Tale” costumes meant to show lack of sexual autonomy and appeared in the Virginia State Capitol. No protests have occurred, and on social media, there’s a notable absence of cries to “believe all women.”

When they say “Believe all women,” they mean, “Believe all women who accuse men we want to destroy.” Yet again we see that the issue is never the issue; the issue is always leftists’ insatiable appetite for power over others.
