Time on Wednesday announced that its “Person of the Year” title for 2017 went to the “silence breakers” who risked their careers to speak up about sexual harassment in the workplace.
This didn’t sit well with many sexist trolls on the web, who lashed out at the magazine for promoting a movement that they say is unfairly slandering men for sexually harassing women.
In particular, Fox News’ tweet about the story was a magnet for angry men who were tired of women speaking up about being sexually harassed.

… women are going to pay for this…. you can’t prosecute from the past….you need to say this time forward this behavior is unacceptable/and don’t wait 20/30/40 years later/stand your ground and have witnesses
