This time it really hit them hard. There have been so many sexual assault accusations that this movement that seemed to help victims without a voice get the courage to denounce will slowly do the opposite.
In my case anyway. Started with Weinstein, then some other dudes then spacey then not long ago Louis Ck. By the time the wave had hit louis Ck I was already not even interested to click on the article.
I just saw a thread with sexual assault and stallone in the same sentence and did not even click.
Of course I thought about this entire scandal being orchestrated to keep us looking away from issues they do not want the public to focus on but it seems to even be banalizing even more the claims of victims who are already accused of jumping on the rapewaggon for attention etc...
At this point, with the momentum #metoo has, it would take just 1 paid fake victim to come clean on live tv about having lied for attention and this entire thing will self desintegrate stigmatising victims even more.

For every one lying fake victim who I believe should face the
same punishment/sentence as the guilty perpetrators there are hundreds of
REAL victims getting the vindication they deserve and need.

Proving allegations in a court of law is difficult. I think this measure you support would make victims less likely to come forward.
