And part of the problem with the common narrative of #MeToo (at least, as it manifests within the minds of many people) is that it too often gets centered around White cisgender heterosexual women.

Overlooked in that narrative is how sexual predators can be women, and how (even more frequently) survivors of sexual abuse/harassment/assault/rape can be men. And how the predatory relationship can sometimes be m-on-m or f-on-f. Including transgender people or nonbinary people (although they are likelier to be the survivors rather than the predators).

We (as a society) have to get over this default assumption that most romance and courtship is going to be heteronormative...or, even for heterosexual partners, that their relationships must somehow to conform to anachronistic gender norms.
