Feminist Takes On Traditional Apology For Sexual Harassment In Brutal Tweet, And Twitter Kept It Going

By Collin Gossel

It feels like every apology for sexual abuse sounds the same. Someone who has done unspeakable things to women or men says they're sorry, tries to justify their actions, then expects their lives to return to a semblance of normalcy their victims have been denied. Many high profile people who have been called out have gotten away with just a small apology, laid low for a bit then moved on. All while the victim never gets to forget it. 

A great example of this are some of the Hollywood actors most prominently accused of it who have gone on to continue doing what they love. It's a double standard that one woman is wanting to change. These 'apologies' don't mean much beyond making an appeasement to the masses.

One feminist on Twitter, @KateHarding, decided to highlight the ridiculousness of these apologies: 

Has a different ring to it, doesn't it? It opens eyes to how hollow some of the apologies can actually be.
