Yes. Yes. Yes! Sue Pascoe hit it smack on with her Viewpoint (“‘#Me Too’ Should Focus on Predators,” February 21). The more trivial complaints made by women (“He emailed, ‘I’m thinking of you’” comes to mind) tend to belittle the serious nature of the true crimes of violence involving force and physical harm. The latter rightfully deserve society’s attention and remedy.
Sue’s right about the unpleasant stuff that goes on when men decide that a “move” is in order. Increase the physical distance, (move off). Look him straight in the eye and say, “I don’t think that’s funny.” But leave the high-road indignation to what matters.
