You’ll remember that former state congressman Don Shooter was expelled from the House for “dishonorable” behavior related to sexual harassment allegations. He recently filed to run for Senate and was asked what he’d learned about the comments he said which got him in trouble.

"The main thing that I've learned is just to know your audience," Shooter said. "Don't say stuff in front of people that don't appreciate it."

This type of comment rankles our next guest, Jackson Katz, of MVP Strategies. He teaches sexual harassment, sexual assault and relationship abuse to workplaces and schools. He even has a TEDTalk. He says the lesson of #MeToo isn’t about curbing “locker room talk” around the opposite sex, it’s about understanding demeaning behavior from the inside out.

Katz spoke with The Show where we asked him what he says to men who say #MeToo is just a campaign bent on revenge.
