It has been brought to my attention that the women’s rugby article I authored last week was found to be offensive by some. I meant for the article to be a joke, but failed to realize that outside the context of the team, some of the references could be misconstrued and seen as injurious.
In retrospect, certain parts of the article were clearly in poor taste, and I completely understand how, not knowing the context of the remarks and not comprehending the distinct rugby culture, one could take offense. I want to make it clear, however, that I do acknowledge that some of my “humor” was of an inappropriate nature, and I would like to sincerely apologize to the members of the QSU and all others who were offended.
