  • Northwestern University recently filled its Title IX/Equity Outreach and Education Specialist position with a controversial blogger who frequently publishes anti-male “art” online.

    Kate Harrington-Rosen, a blogger at “The Not Sorry Project,” began working for the university over the summer and is responsible for training faculty and students about reporting sexual misconduct, The Daily Northwestern reported Wednesday.

    "I’m not sorry that cishet alpha men are trash to me until proven innocent."   

    Dwight Hamilton, the associate vice president of equity at the university, praised the new Title IX appointment, telling the newspaper that he is “very happy that we have someone within the office who’s dedicated to communicating on issues of sexual misconduct and sexual violence awareness.”

    On her blog, however, Harrington-Rosen frequently publishes controversial rhetoric that blasts men for a wide array of transgressions, and even argues that some men are “trash” until proven innocent.

    “I’m not sorry that cishet alpha men are trash to me until proven innocent,” read one post published on the blog’s Instagram page in September.

    According to the blog’s Patreon page, the website features “not sorry” quotes that are sent in by readers who want to be featured on the blog.

    “These are community submissions (text or audio) in which YOU tell us what you're not sorry for. We take your words and create an image from the submission and add it to the site,” the bloggers explain.

    While many published blog posts reflect on relationships and provide social commentary, others make negative remarks toward men and even condemn the U.S. military.

    One republished post from July, for example, advocated for “trans liberation not more U.S. invasion,” and to “Ban the Military!”

    “I’m not sorry that it infuriates me that male colleagues are coddled and given extra chances to improve poor performance,” read part of another post from June.

    According to description of the project, the blog is primarily intended to “create space for people to resist the phenomenon of the compulsory apology by choosing to consciously take up space with non-apologies.”

    Harrington-Rosen did not immediately respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment.
