Ayesha Omer Opened To Ahsan Khan
THIS MOVEMENT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT TAKES A LOT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO’VE BEEN VICTIMS TO OPEN UP ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES. THERE ARE SO MANY MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR OWN INDUSTRY WHO HAVE BEEN THROUGH IT.
WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO COME OUT, EVEN IF ONLY THE RENOWNED ARE TALKED ABOUT. THE LACK OF PROJECTION FOR SOME SOME, SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS DISCRIMINATORY TOWARDS ANYONE ELSE’S STRUGGLES.
IT SHOULD SIMPLY BE TAKEN AS A MEANS TO EMPOWER THOSE WITHOUT MEDIUMS BY CHANNELING THEM THROUGH THOSE WITH THE MEANS.
IT IS EXTREMELY COMMENDABLE OF THOSE WHO COME OUT WITH THEIR EXPERIENCES, MAKING METOO AN EXTREMELY BRAVE MOVEMENT.
EVEN THOUGH IT MAY ALSO BE EXPLOITED, BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE THE MOVEMENT BAD. BEING EXPLOITED IS NO THE MOVEMENT’S INTENTION. IT’S JUST THAT, EVERYTHING ENDS UP BEING EXPLOITED.
I HAVE BEEN THROUGH HARASSMENT IN MY CAREER AND LIFE, SO I UNDERSTAND HOW IT FEELS. I DON’T HAVE THE COURAGE TO TALK ABOUT IT YET, MAYBE SOMEDAY I WILL. BUT I CAN TOTALLY RELATE WITH EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH IT.
THERE IS NO PARTICULAR TIME FOR ONE TO OPEN UP ABOUT IT, IT CAN TAKE ONE 20 YEARS, ANOTHER ONLY ONE, WHILE FOR SOME IT TAKES TWO MINUTES. PEOPLE CAN COME OUT WHENEVER.
