It has come to my attention that I’ve made some insensitive remarks in this space as of late. Specifically, my use of a two plays on words regarding the Giants and UGA that were perceived–not without reason–as homophobic. I wouldn’t be addressing this in this space if I didn’t feel strongly about doing so.
I would like to apologize to my readers. Not because they’re generally offensive, a lot of what I write is offensive. I’d like to apologize because the remarks I made single out and demean a specific group. That’s the last thing I want to do. That’s not what I’m all about. And I’m embarrassed I let myself do it.
The remarks I made without thinking and if I could do it all over again I certainly wouldn’t have made them. I don’t want to make an excuse, because what I wrote was inexcusable. I just want to apologize, retract my statements, and let my readers know I didn’t mean what I said and assure them I won’t make the same mistake again. Again, I’m not trying to make an excuse, but I view this as a mistake on my part. I’m just a 21-year old kid and I’ll probably make a lot more mistakes before I die, but I won’t make this one again. In no way am I prejudice against any group of humans. From here on my writing won’t be inconsistent with the previous statement.
Please accept my apology.
