Man Complains ‘Me Too’ Campaign Isn’t Inclusive Enough
Although the ‘Me Too’ campaign has been praised for the light that it has shed on sexual abuse and encouraging more people to come forward with their own stories, it is not without its critics. In Edinburgh, the lead anti ‘Me-Too’ campaigner and Computer Science student Cameron Lawson has complained that the movement is trying to silence men whose voices deserve a chance to be heard.
Speaking to Flipside, Lawson said “I just don’t get it. This campaign has been going on for more than 2 weeks and still nobody has asked my opinion of it. The campaign just doesn’t relate to me whatsoever and I feel like this is the fault of the activists. Their lack of inclusivity excludes me from contributing to the cultural zeitgeist. In fact, this disgrace of a campaign should be halted until it learns how to include predominately white, male voices who own multiple anonymous twitter accounts”.
When approached for a statement, EUSA President Patrick ‘Theresa May’ Kilduff sighed to himself before saying “As soon as I find my gilet, this fucker is going down”. Despite his assurances, our Flipside reporter couldn’t help but snicker as Kilduff tried putting on his gilet as if it were a pair of trousers and repeatedly falling over.
In other news, EUSA Parliamentarian Robby Traverse echoed Lawson’s calls, while demanding that the mural celebrating diversity outside the library be torn down and replaced with a 10ft wall tribute to Rick and Morty.
