30 Seconds Of Women Over-Apologizing, Followed By 30 Seconds Of Them *So* Destroying That Stereotype

There’s nothing wrong with apologizing. In fact, it’s sort of what you’re supposed to do when you’re in the wrong. However, women are 37%* more likely than men to identify their own behavior as worthy of an apology, which leads to women apologizing more frequently than men do ... which in turn, unfortunately, fuels the double standard that women who aren’t “apologetic enough” are bossy (or worse).

So, ladies and gentlemen, I’m not here to tell you how to use your words. That would be silly. But I am here to show you this video in hopes that we might recognize this behavior in ourselves and work together to create a world in which over-apologizing isn't expected from either gender.



*You can read the study I'm referring to here if you're into that sort of thing: It's titled "Why Women Apologize More Than Men: Gender Differences in Thresholds for Perceiving Offensive Behavior" and was published by Karina Schumann and Michael Ross.

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.

Just watch this clip of them narrating an equestrian event. (Language warning if you've got kiddos nearby. The first video is bleeped, but the others aren't.)
