“My dick wielded power irresponsibly”
“My dick is a professional”
– Isobel O’Hare
If my daughter was a teenager, and old enough to understand the gravity of the #MeToo movement, Isobel O’Hare’s all this can be yours would be required reading. It is a look inside the mind of really awful people, written in the words of those really awful people.
Isobel O’Hare has redacted the bullshit from nameless celebrity apologies. That they don’t have names makes this even more poignant. We don’t need to focus on the faces behind the statements. Instead we read the words of those who have done harm, those who will not recognize the harm, and those unwilling to do anything about any of it.
all this can be yours is a patchwork quilt of what should have been said by all the dicks in the room.
