Men, we hear you. Several men have expressed concern that they might be falsely accused of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct going forward due to the #MeToo movement. I thought I would share these helpful tips.

1. Stay alert and aware at all times. If you are at a party with a woman who you think will falsely accuse you of sexual assault, limit your alcohol consumption. She is free to drink, but your impaired judgment is not an excuse for her false accusations.

    I thought Emily Bazelon’s take was fair-minded: For too long women have had to shoulder the burden of fear and uncertainty. Now men are starting to feel their fair share of the threat.
    I say: Good.

  2. My husband said he saw a thought experiment for women: imagine what you would do if men had a 9:00 p.m. curfew. Even just one night a week.

    It’s mind-boggling to think of. I’d go for walks at night by myself, for a start.

    He says he’d support a male curfew.

    The one that struck me first and has always stayed with me was when I read about Israeli PM Golda Mier who, when her cabinet was discussing a curfew on women to reduce incidences of assault on women, said

    ‘But it’s the men who are attacking the women. If there’s to be a curfew, let the men stay home, not the women.’

    I must have been 16-18 years old when I came across that and it just gobsmacked me.
