Ok dudes, forget about sexual assault for now. Don't you feel too humiliated to say anything about or report horrific things bullies have done to you?

This is a very good point.

HOWEVER, I think men get even less sympathy than women, on the whole. Even if a man is open about horrible physical abuse inflicted by bullies, society turns a blind eye and thinks even less of him for being open about it and for being the victim...yes, you know what I mean.

But a valid point indeed, and I can see why some women are afraid to come forward.

That said, I think famous/recognizable people in general are at greater risk of false accusations and character assassination.

Following recent allegations of sexual misconduct, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s talk show, “StarTalk,” is on a hiatus while the claims are investigated by the National Geographic Channel.

Late last November, National Geographic Networks and Fox said they would examine claims that Tyson behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner toward two women. In addition, Tyson was expected to host a new edition of “Cosmos: Possible Worlds,” a series he revived in 2014, in March. However, that’s on hold as well.

As previously reported, Tyson has been accused by multiple women of misconduct, stemming from allegations made by three women to Patheos, a religion and spirituality website.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Tyson addressed the misconduct allegations offering his version of the events and denying any inappropriate touching or rape. However, he did apologize for making any of the women uncomfortable.
