Whatever happened to 'Time's Up!' and the 'Me Too' movement?

No one is talking about it anymore. What happened?

    Our media has a very narrow bandwidth and as both major party Presidential candidates have rumors of sexual impropriety it kind of cancels that out as an issue.

    "Whatever happened to 'Time's Up!' and the 'Me Too' movement?"

    Lots of good answer already including when too many "friends" of the feminist/Leftists got caught up themselves in the movement.  The pandemic of course.  And the biggest of all is the US election where it is imperative for the architects of those movements that -their man-, Joe Biden get elected no matter what.  This includes putting aside the principles of those movements so that Joe Biden's sexual indiscretions are not publicized so he can win the election by not confusing hardened feminists with the allegations against him that should take him down according to those movements.

    Another one is the rise of BLM as the social change agents for the Establishment elite here in the US.  Again, the Establishment candidate is Joe Biden.  And since the Establishment was burned last time by trying to push feminism on the public with their candidate Hillary, and that failed, they are now bringing racism and BLM to the front in the hopes that that will do the trick.  Thus these movements are pushed to the back while BLM and racist stuff is brought to the front.  This is because the feminist shaming is way overplayed at this point in history.  This new round of racist shaming is quite new ... although it too may have been overplayed with all the riots and such.

    These things died of multiple causes:

    1:  We're in the midst of a pandemic and the press is focused on other things (and therefore people generally are focused on other things).

    After awhile, even salacious court cases and pronouncements of evil doing make way for other news of the day.  Even finding out another congress person took advantage of his or her position to force an underling into sex just can't compete with over 200,000 people dying.

    2: People of all demographics (including gender), have been accused, making this not something one demographic can use to flog another demographic.  How can women flog men for this if Amber Heard is beating up on Johnny Depp, for instance?  It makes the issue about personal behavior, not a nasty thing you can say to insult your favorite whipping posts with.

    That doesn't stop people from trying, I suppose.

    3: There's nobody of any importance out there defending the other side:  Nobody is saying that bosses should be able to sexually harass underlings.  There is no fundamental contention here, only an issue of facts:  "Is this actually happening?"

    And clearly it is.

    Everything beyond that is an issue of the facts of individual cases and they simply aren't as interesting to the public.

    Power corrupts.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Yeah, bosses are going to continue to abuse their power, yeah, there will be everything from simple misunderstandings to outright violent crime committed in the name of sex, but maybe this go-around in the press will have given a few more victims the power they need to fight their own abuse.

    At least for awhile.

    But yeah, just like we have protests over black lives now after having a civil rights movement in the late 60s, you can expect other similar "this is still a thing" moments in the future.

    Power corrupts.  Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    THAT is not news, but people sure do seem to forget it quickly.

    You may not have spotted this but the world is in the grip of a mass pandemic which will have killed two million people by the end of 2020. The US is looking at 300,000. People have other priorities right now.

    When Biden was accused of sexual assault the #MeToo movement died. The Time's Up movement never took off and just stayed within the ranks of the elite in Hollywood.

    Just try putting regulations on women right now and you will get the wrath of congress. Be warned.
