Arianna Huffington’s Tweet Confirms The #MeToo Movement Is Backfiring
Apparently, Arianna Huffington is worried, because male managers aren’t too eager to mentor women anymore. Mm-hmm, this is her tweet:

Really? What the heck did they think would happen???
The link from the tweet goes to this page which reads:
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, it’s clearer than ever we need to put an end to sexual harassment. But that is not enough. There is evidence of a backlash that could be harmful to women: twice as many male managers now feel uncomfortable working alone with a woman.1 This is a step in the wrong direction. Now more than ever, we need men working with—and mentoring—women. When more women lead, workplaces are stronger and safer for everyone.
Perhaps, attitudes like this has a little something to do with it:
Arianna received a twitter full of opinions on this:
Uncomfortable, understandable no one wants to walk the line and risk allegations true or false that can cost them a their career.

Sorry, I'm not mentoring anyone who may come back ten years later falsely claiming I sexually harassed/assaulted her; so she can feel woke and be part of "something". To hell with that. The door stays open. A third party will always be present.

All this #metoo makes men afraid to even socialize with a woman. Good men dont want to be caught up and associated with it. What did you think was going to happen?

I’m a woman and I wouldn’t even want to mentor women anymore.

This what happens when you don't think ahead. Lol this is a result of the guilty until proven innocent logic y'all been using.

Yep, we saw this coming! Said it a million times this #MeToo sh*t is going too far and it’s going to backfire BIGLY.
We tell our husbands BE CAREFUL and don’t be talking to the women at work anymore and if you do have to talk to them do not get close to them while talking and keep it strictly on subject of work. Seriously no sh*t we’ve both given this advice to our husbands.
For real what did they think was going to happen? If you’re a man wouldn’t you think twice before mentoring a woman at your work place? Mm-hmmm, bet you sure do or would.
