The #MeToo social media movement is well-intentioned, yet problematic, an issue Tori went into in-depth yesterday. But one upside of this complicated online activism is the impact it’s had on men around the world. For many, sexual harassment and sexual assault went from a theoretical concept to very real as they saw their friends, family, and loved ones fill their timelines with the simple, heartbreaking phrase: me too.

Men began to use #metoo, not only to share their own stories of abuse, but also to voice their support of survivors. Australian author Benjamin Law proposed a new hashtag in hopes of furthering the conversation of how male allies can do better.

Twitter users are employing this hashtag as an opportunity to reflect and do better.

Meanwhile, some took this as an opportunity to declare themselves above reproach.

The last one so perfectly distills this line of thinking, that I wondered if it’s satire. It is not.

Basically:

Yes, all men.
