It is no more going to be a bed of roses for sexual predators. Now they can scarcely hide the wrong acts with the cover of their power and influence. Even the powerfully naughty and haughty Harvey Weinstein had to give in to the thunder of #MeToo some months back. Thanks to the bold roars in unison by over 80 victims who could finally corner this lecherous filmmaker. What of Weinstein’s castle of his opulence and social influence now? They all have fallen virtually down like a house of cards! Yes, the formidable jaws of #MeToo have already devoured a good many Weinsteins across the world.
Big uproars in media and Bollywood have already put the integrity of the entertainment houses into question. Many film actresses are now determined to fight against the sexual advances by their past bosses. But what is too shocking is that we now get to see the skeletons tumbling out from the unsuspected holy cupboards too.
This 19th October was another new dawn for the Northeast. A humble lady from our Meghalaya could gather enough courage yet again. She ventured to articulate through social media the evil acts of the devil under the garb of holiness. Too disgusting, ones who sermonized and lectured about the “hell of eternity” in fact had allegedly given the lady hell since she was a 5-year old kid. I don’t think any jail sentence or material punishment will ever appease God in heaven for such heartless pedophilic acts. It is an unpardonable sin.
I think the stern laws and various kinds of punishments existing to prevent sexual misconducts have been quite dwarfed by the worldwide #Metoo movement. One considers this movement as truly “successful” when males habitually “fear to touch” females as they fear to touch fire. Indeed, as noticed, the fear “symptom” has already started to run deep into the veins of the males. Is it not a very healthy development? Hope this will help douse their raging fire of lust.
However, there is a fair chance of this moveme nt being “misused” for the wrong end too. Its consequence could be very bad for both males and females, and society at large. Such false #MeToo is sure to “upset” the system God created. So, no innocent males should ever be harassed and tormented by females for vengeance. “WeTwo” should not at all turn into #MeToo, else the “sharpness” of #MeToo movement itself goes blunt too early. Let the evil in man be slain, not his gentlemanliness!
