The Backlash that comes with Supporting a Survivor #MeToo

Last winter in February 2018, anti wolf legislators read Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin’s reblogged account of the sexual assault (it was common knowledge already being distributed on Earth First news wire) of Julie a member of Rod Coronado’s Wolf Patrol. These legislators began to use the sexual assault to get rid of Coronado and they used my name in a letter sent to the legislature without my approval. I never sided with any anti wolf legislators against Wolf Patrol. Yet, these anti wolf legislators, who I wouldn’t doubt are misogynistic themselves, used my public support of Julie against Coronado, causing backlash within the movement. Misogyny is the dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women. Now I’m on the receiving end of backlash for my support of Julie, a young woman, a biologist, conservationist, dedicated wolf advocate, and survivor of a sexual assault by Rod Coronado. Coronado the leader of Wolf Patrol at that time and almost 20 years older than Julie. I stand by Julie and I believe her.
