A critical question for today’s voters is this: Can any man be nominated or recommended for any high position, public or private, without a flurry of false accusations of sexual misconduct from feminists/progressive office-holders or -seekers? Such accusers are bent on eliminating men from all valued positions in society and replacing them with women (“Brett Kavanaugh denies new sexual assault accusation from Deborah Ramirez,” Web, Sept. 23).

This is not idle speculation, as anyone can see from the vile treatment afforded the current nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The #MeToo movement began with noteworthy and socially valued motivations, but today has deteriorated into nothing but arrant political false accusations designed to ruin the lives and livelihoods of men. No one should ever just “believe the survivor” without clear and powerful supporting evidence that would stand up in court under cross-examination and with full due process.

In my view, the only solution is for all men and all women who love men to bullet vote against those who support the #MeToo movement.
