To our Xltronic community of contributors, subscribers,
partners, and visitors which includes, but is not limited
to, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Middle Eastern, Asian, trans,
non-binary, and queer people, undocumented and other
immigrants, people with disabilities, and those struggling
financially: I apologize for my comments in the face of
economic and social crisis, and I amid the call to dismantle
institutional racism.

I'm sorry that I called Marlowe a woke communist retard.

I will take some time to reflect, re-energize, and
regenerate.

To embrace conflict and heal from harm, we need to envision
and rebuild our communities on the building blocks of
accountability. To begin taking accountability, we start
with an apology. Since an apology is made by the one who
caused the harm, it can carry resentment, shame, and
defensiveness and that can often make an apology ineffective
and sometimes result in a continuation of harm. But
apologies serve a purpose, and that is to acknowledge that
harm was done. To make genuine apologies, one needs to
recognise the harm without being shamed into it. When shame
is used to force an apology, it will be self-serving. That
apology then has one purpose: to rid the one who caused harm
from the self-resentment that comes with shame. Apologies
should be encouraged and normalised because it is an
expression of wanting to do better, to be better, and to
love better.

Foremost, to all the women who were present in the audience
for the talk I would like to publicly and unreservedly
apologise for the subject, content and delivery of the
talk.
In particular, that I added the image DESPITE knowing it
would be shocking to you was utterly stupid on my part. I
completely misread how badly it would be taken.
I SHOULD have recognised immediately that the talk would
have had a stronger impact, and created feelings of being
singled out from your peers solely due to gender, or
feelings of being unwelcome in the room. And in one case I'm
aware of, of creating a fear about being in the room itself
for a minute or so.
With two younger sisters of my own, I cannot express how
guilty I feel that I might be responsible for creating
anything like that "walking alone at night" feeling for you,
especially in a conference environment where there are
already so few women, and in which you should be welcomed
with open arms.
Secondly, I would like to publically apologise to the
organising committee, and to the sponsors.
You already have far too much to do organising a conference
of this size and you have all contributed so much to make it
happen and to make it a success.

I made a big mistake and I offended many people, and I am
very sorry about this.

To my network, my colleagues and our incredible
audience—I'm sorry. I've heard you, I'm learning from you,
and I'm committed to doing better. See you soon.

I am a Caucasian cisgender female and first-generation
college student from Appalachia who is of Scottish, British
and Norwegian heritage.

I am married to a cisgender male, and we are middle class.
While I did not ‘ask’ for the many privileges in my
life: I have benefitted from them and will continue to
benefit from them whether I like it or not. This is
injustice.

I don't often say it - I'm sorry for being a man, because
family and sexual violence is overwhelmingly perpetrated by
men.

Take a back seat, tony. Do you understand what "having
titties" means?

Call me dense, but at 12 and 13 it never occurred to me to
ask a girl my age what it was like to be the focus of
desire. It never occurred to me to talk about the insane
desire I felt, how respect and empathy were so far away when
driven mad by a lust I didn’t understand—and hadn’t
asked for either, by the way.

Eventually Michelle turned our conversation to “the male
gaze.” I’d been hearing the term a lot while researching
my forthcoming book on pornography, and Michelle had been
receiving it almost her whole life. She reminded me that
even in a perfectly safe situation, the full attention of a
male almost twice her size could be intimidating. She
suggested that most men don’t know the impact their own
gaze has on most women.

I apologize for using gendered language in my last post.

Having been misgendered myself, I offer the following
advice:

When someone misgenders me it almost always turns into a
five minute conversation where I’m almost expected to
comfort or forgive someone who has misgendered me. People
want to apologize and I appreciate it, but I’m honestly
not looking for an apology. I just want them to stop doing
it. Someone turning it into something beyond an “I’m
sorry,” or “It won’t happen again,” or a correction
of their mistake makes me feel very anxious. I’ve changed
my responses to these Cis-Apology-Waltz’s as I call them.
I used to force a smile and laugh and say “It’s okay,
haha,” but I’ve stopped doing that because it’s a lie
and because it’s actually not okay. If I am not firm with
the people who fuck up they will not change; and I’ve
learned this the hard way.

EXECUTIVE: Dear sponsors, collegues,
and valued consumers of Wolfslice,

It is with deepest regrets that we apologize for the
behavior of Wolfslice on behalf of the Executive Leadership
Team, as well as our Community Relationships department (and
the many other teams who worked to keep Wolfslice a
welcoming space). We are deeply sorry for Wolfslice's recent
off-color remarks and want to reiterate that we do not
condone these actions.

We have been studying this past month, and are taking action
accordingly:
\begin{itemize}
  \item Wolfslice is hiring new interns in the
Community Relationships department with a focus on creating
more welcoming spaces for all identities!
  \item We will be adding more gender neutral
bathrooms.
  \item We have reached out to the trans community
to provide resources and support.
\end{itemize}

Thank you again for your patience in working through this
difficult time, and we hope to see you at our next Wolfslice
event!!

The Executive Leadership Team & Community Relationships
Department of Xltronic, Inc.

EXECUTIVE:

\begin{itemize}
   \item Wolfslice is an open-source community,
not a traditional company with a centralized hierarchy to be
controlled by a single person. As such, Wolfslice cannot
control what Wolfslice members say or do online.
   \item Wolfslice values the contributions of all
its members and takes no issue with the many different
perspectives that exist in our community. Wolfslice is an
open-source community where all are welcome to participate
and contribute regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual
orientation, ability, religion, or country of origin.
   \item As part of Wolfslice's commitment to
these values we have taken the following action: \strong{The
Executive Leadership Team & Community Relationships
Department of Xltronic, Inc.} are launching a new diversity
and inclusion initiative with the goal of building an
inclusive community that welcomes every member.
   \item Wolfslice was not alone in its reaction
to The Wolfslice Mess; we were simply part of the broader
online conversation around it -- and Wolfslice has
participated in all the major discussions surrounding The
Wolfslice Mess. In short, everyone is being outspoken about
it.
   \item As mentioned above, Wolfslice's members
are not bound by any one leader. Wolfslice values diversity
of ideas and perspectives, and this will remain a core part
of our community culture as well as what defines us.
   \item Xltronic, Inc. has no plans to censor its
employees or staff from participating on public social media
accounts. As previously mentioned, Wolfslice is not an
organization that can control individual members' online
presence -- the only thing we can do is to keep them
informed of this expectation and support them in upholding
it when they are outspoken.

   \item The diversity initiative will be led by a
new team of interns working alongside other volunteers from
all around the world. There's no need for anyone to panic,
however, as we have already made progress by being
transparent about this initiative at both a company and
project level. The Executive Leadership Team & Community
Relationships Department of Xltronic, Inc. have published
their diversity policy on GitHub as an open-source
repository along with an overview of the upcoming diversity
initiative.
   \item Any staff at Xltronic, Inc. can
participate in the new diversity and inclusion initiative.
If you do not wish to participate please make your concerns
known to The Executive Leadership Team & Community
Relationships Department of Xltronic, Inc.. In addition, we
ask that everyone contribute to creating a positive
experience for all members.
   \item Wolfslice is hiring new interns in the
Community Relationships department with a focus on creating
more welcoming spaces for all identities! Please see the
open positions at this link:
https://www.wolfslice.com/careers/current-openings/.
   \item In addition to new staff, Xltronic, Inc.
is also hiring an Assistant named EXECUTIVE who will be
working closely with our teams! The Executive Leadership
Team & Community Relationships Department of Xltronic, Inc.
are looking for a highly competent and confident
self-starter to work with them directly in creating and
maintaining strategic partnerships and building new
initiatives for the company.
   \item If you wish to have your concerns heard
by The Executive Leadership Team & Community Relationships
Department of Xltronic, Inc., please submit a ticket at this
link: https://www.wolfslice.com/support/.
