Karen Owen Duke: Owen Publicly Apologizes to Jezebel
Since Owen's "thesis" has become public, she has obviously had to do some damage control. Yesterday, she submitted an apology to Jezebel saying,
"The people that are named in it are the kinds of people that everyone wants to be or be with. I regret it with all my heart. I would never intentionally hurt the people that are mentioned on that."
If you didn't want to hurt anybody, you shouldn't have created a 42-slide PowerPoint about it.
Owen defends her actions by saying that fraternities make lists like this all the time, and some are trying to paint the girl as a sort of feminist. Some feel that men are usually the ones who are able to explore their sexuality more freely, and that Karen Owen was simply trying to reclaim this freedom as a woman.
I think they're giving this girl too much credit. If she was truly trying to make this kind of statement, she wouldn't have deleted all of her social networking profiles.
Good move, Karen.
Good luck getting a job now.
