“Sexual harassment isn’t merely “creepy,” it’s illegal. So, start by admitting that. Otherwise you’re just minimizing.”
Thank you. Due to the power dynamic I can’t consider this a situation where free and equal consent is even possible. Some of the stories that I’ve read spell out actions that go beyond harassment and into clear sexual assault. In that light, apologizing for “creepiness” isn’t brave or humble; it’s pretty offensive, actually.
