Deshaun Watson Shows the Weakness of #MeToo
Does consent + money = justice?
I’m not trying to fire off a hot take about Deshaun Watson or his 6-game suspension. Is it a good ruling? Is it a bad ruling? I don’t really know. Heck, I don’t even know at this point if that’s the discipline the NFL will stick with. Whether Watson is guilty of all his accusers have said I do not know. Whether all those said accusers were equally credible, I too do not know.
That’s the thing: I just don’t know. And it’s likely that nobody outside of Watson and those massage therapists will ever know. Just like it’s likely that nobody outside of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will likely ever know exactly what went on. That’s the #MeToo moment in a nutshell.
