I won’t participate in a sexist environment by allowing you to apologise for trivialities or nothings. I’m no fan of ego-fueled chauvinism or feminism. I’m happy for us to be boys and girls, different in our ways but working towards being human together.
Don’t apologise before asking for something. Don’t apologise for your beliefs. Don’t apologise to a guy whose in your way in a shop or at work. Don’t “Sorry, can i have the bill” to the waitron.
Don’t apologise for the way you look – realise that you look better than every guy i’ve ever met.
I especially don’t want you to apologise when you’re right.
“Sorry” is an institutionalised inferiority complex. “Sorry” shows a lack of confidence and doesn’t apply to the many terrific women i’ve met. If you need answers to empower you, then, especially, don’t say “sorry” for asking questions!
If we apologise in all the wrong places, then the “sorry” that’s needed for a serious situation sounds too much like “sorry, not sorry”. Some words need to carry weight. “SORRY” is one of them.
But if you trip me down the stairs after reading this blog…
