While he welcomes the heightened cultural dialogue around these issues, Boscaljon is “incredibly pessimistic” about the Me Too momentum prompting long-term change.“I have numerous friends who have been harassed, sexually assaulted and raped.” Despite increased awareness of sexual assault in the wake of #Me Too, Bussel says she’s become less trusting of men: “I have had some pretty scary experiences with men in college … Chan, a sex educator in Toronto, shares Bussel’s hope, saying: “To move forward we need conversations in which men say, ‘I wonder what I’ve done in my life that may have put someone in danger.’ I want to recruit men to be part of the change.”Bussel believes said change will require men in positions of power (such as “actors, rappers and athletes that younger men look up to”) to start speaking up for high school and college-age men to start truly getting it.and I have been coerced and pressured numerous times.”But with a renewed personal dedication to activism, Bussel is hopeful about the future, provided that men — on-campus and off — start involving themselves more tenaciously in these conversations.
