    A woman wouldnt accuse an innocent man of a serious crime. Sexual harrassment/assault is too heavy a thing for us to just fling around carelessly. Unfortunately its too difficult for most men to imagine what sexual assault or harrassement feels like ergo all the comments like "this is revenge on ex boyfriends".

    There are so many comments here, that accuse the women, who suufered and wanted to warn other women, of damaging a man's reputation. It's so sad, that a man's reputation is more important than the safety of a woman. Of course there is also sexual violence against men. But still, women suffer it daily, and it is not taken seriously, because of people that try to normalize it. Dear commentators, please take the victims seriously. I think if someone would harass your mother, your sister, your girlfriend or wife, you would certainly react different.

    This woman has obvious anxiety issues, I don't know if she can be relied on as a reporter. Due to her social anxiety her perspective of what is acceptable may be skewed. At least that's the counter argument I would go with if I were someone on the right looking to discredit her…you can have that one for free.

    Not like women are inherently jealous and likely to name the last guy who dumped them or anything… Can't see how this could go wrong…

    I understand the women's problem in this world, but this is just pure witch hunt. Think of all the false report. Think of the innocent lives that could have been ruined just because someone simply disliked them. Remember Hugh Mungus? SEXUAL HARRASHMENT!!!!

    These idiots don't know or want to admit that those kind of things give people who do have evil intent a powerful tool to publicly shame other person.Women are not perfect and often times men are victim of sexual abuse too.when we will shift the conversation from women being victim to both men and women being victim.

    So it's a list based on stories and hearsay… I wonder how many guys names were on this 'list' simply because they dumped a girl or other things to that affect.

    The concern is this: people can make accusations (some might be embellished or even false) and irrevocably damage a persons reputation, without there being a fair trial. Further, since it's anonymous, the person whose reputation is being damaged cannot sue for damages (and therefore cannot clear their name) and the person making the accusations doesn't have to face any accountability. Even if one innocent person's life is ruined by false accusations I would claim the spreadsheet is a failure. Popular justice – mob justice – isn't liberal justice, and liberal justice (a fair trial, the presumption of innocence, the right to defend yourself in court, etc., etc.) is one of the pillars of the US. Her spreadsheet undermines that conception of justice.

    People from some sexual groups do not in the least condemn sexual harassment – for them this is a common thing. .. Some like it hot …

    Can you put me on the list even if it's not true please? I need a bit more fame exposure for my masterpiece.

    In Afghanistan, when villagers are asked where the enemy is – many people name other villagers they have a feud with. The result is US air strikes the other villagers house.

    Humans use situations to their personal advantage.

    Notice this comment is not gender specific.

    Just because you anonymously try to smear dozens of men with career-destroying gossip based on no investigation or evidence, that doesn't mean you're not a NYT hero.

    The NY slimes is doing this, In the US you are supposed to have the right to face your accuser of course that doesn't count if you can make a little money. The option is not good because we should be able to say you're guilty and be believed.

    I'm a man, but when she says "women," is she referring to all women or just white women?
