    Not to mention it's a fad. Remember Bryan Singer and his pedo ring, or Bill Cosby? Shit was on the news for a bit and then people got kinda tired of hearing about it. In another year people are gonna get tired of all these accusations and just stop listening again and it will all fade into the background.

    Not to mention all this whistleblowing benefits and fuels the fame of these women - I highly doubt it'll give the average guy or girl any more leverage than they had before. Hopefully if anything people will start to speak up when the shit happens instead of waiting 20 years.

    The movement is identifying as a person.

    That's not a person that's a group.

    I'm not sure publicizing these things on a grandeur level where Time has a group name for them (The Silence Breakers) is something that helps the cause in the long run? You know its just antagonizing crazies who wanna make shit up to be talked about even more.

    But kudos Time. Its been nice seeing the entitled in Hollywood fall apart a little bit now that people are finally speaking out and being heard

    People were upset that Colin Kaepernick didnt make the list, but in the end, he was a Silence Breaker himself against racism

    So basically time magazine is like Yahoo news. Where they have click bait articles designed to get people so pissed that they have to talk about it.

    I understand its important to speak up against sexual abuse....ok sure, I agree it was a good thing those women spoke up, great.

    As much as I agree with that, sorry there are way.....WAAAAAAYYYYY more critical human related problems in the world that affect to MORE people and deserve more light in order to advance, and there are those working on those issues.

    So sorry but I think this is just a more publicity based decision so less aware humans can say "oh wow look how good Times magazine is".... hmmm no not really

    It's nice to see KRS-One included, even if I'm at a loss as to why.

    I honestly think Colin was having a terrible day and didn't stand for the Flag because he was having a horrible year as a QB.

    He then turned into it was racism

    It's genius cause it worked and now he's a bigger star than the NFL

    Where is any of the evidence for this? I understand a few of these women are legit, no doubt. But what happens when some crazy cunt pulls this stunt and says a guy molested her/sexually harassed them? The guys reputation is ruined for ever without any proof or evidence. This is a sad day for due process and the justice system, it is entirely too easy to claim someone sexually assaulted you.
