In the time of #MeToo and the Year of the Woman, Mormon Church president tells women to get off social media for 10 days - The Washington Post
“I don’t think this is telling Mormon women not to be political on sexual virtue. I think that would be the last thing you would hear from these guys,” Flake said. “I don’t think he’s talking about politics. I don’t think he’s talking about sex. I think he’s talking about focus — recalibrate your priorities; know what matters; and just detox.”
