In case you hadn’t already heard, D.J. Grothe apologized today…to Rebecca. Not to me. Not to Jen. Not to Ashley. Not to the women whose complaints of harassment and assault he decided were simply regrets about their “sexual exploits”. Not to the male bloggers whom he decided weren’t part of the problem when they wrote about harassment policies.
Then he said I hadn’t contacted any conference organizers about harassment policies. This will be news to some conference organizers. And he still hasn’t had anything to say about the request to put the JREF harassment policy somewhere more prominent than a year-old blog post.
I really said all I had to say right after the apology. I’m still just baffled by the whole thing. I was going to blog something else this afternoon, but…yeah.
Here. Have a platypus instead.
