    "Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, one of the most prominent voices for women’s rights in the California legislature, has been accused of groping a young legislative staffer in 2014."

    "The former staffer, Daniel Fierro of Cerritos, told POLITICO that Garcia, D-Bell Gardens, cornered him after the annual Assembly softball game while he was cleaning up the dugout. He said Garcia, who appeared to be drunk, stroked his back, squeezed his buttocks and tried to grope him before he was able to leave the situation."

    Sometimes men are victims of sexual harassment/assault. We can't forget that. This doesn't mean the #MeToo movement is worthless. But it does mean that there are hypocrites in it and I hope they are exposed for what they are.

    Agreed.

    Of course there are. But it is atypical. Besides, this post focuses one the fact that Garcia is a woman, but she is also a politician, a person in a position of power, a human being, etc. The problem is that people will focus on her gender and ignore all the other categories to which she belongs.

    The majority of males who are sexually assaulted are assaulted by other males.
