I think her reaction perfectly sums up the silliness this movement has turned into; instead of addressing his concerns, she is attacking him personally with a hypothetical slur.

She has just set this movement back even further and has pushed me away from it

Germaine Greer also had something to say on this.  and not on the #MeToo side.

whatever the individual cases were (and I am sure there were many where people felt intimidated or abused or forced to act against their will) I guess there might be many where the facts don't bear out the accusation of non-consensual behavior.  The rush to judgment before any investigation is definitely not nice to behold.

She used to be so cheerful when she was working. Unemployment and aging seems to have made her bitter.

So is Barkin obliquely accusing Gilliam of rape or sexual assault with her “hard won advice” comment. If not, she is making his point for him. If she is accusing him and she supports the movement, why isn’t she speaking out to prevent him from attacking other women?

Absolutely.

If you don't toe the line of the #metoo lynch mob you are a traitor and will be labeled as a rapist for the sheer pleasure of doing so. The U.S needs much stronger defamation laws, like we have in Aus.
