Actress Amber Tamblyn says she is not ready for sexual predators to be forgiven in an op-ed published Thursday in The New York Times.

The actress, who came forward with her own story of sexual abuse in October 2016, is speaking up about what should happen now after droves of women have come forward in recent months to accuse Hollywood power players like Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and more of sexual misconduct.

Her thoughts? It's not quite time yet for these men, many of whom have lost jobs and more, to be redeemed.

"Why do we need to talk about the redemption of men when we are right in the middle of the salvation of women? Not even the middle, but the very beginning?," she wrote. "Why are we obligated to care about salvaging male careers when we have just begun to tell the stories that have plagued us for lifetimes? It seems some men like a revolution only when it’s their kind of war."

Amber Tamblyn has penned another op - ed in the New York Times, this time explaining why she ’ s “ not ready for the redemption of men” amid the post-Weinstein flood of men coming under fire for sexual harassment or assault.

Tamblyn clarifies that she does not think that accused men need to disappear from the public eye "forever."

"I’m not talking about banishment. I’m talking about ceding the floor. The power of celebrity and cultural approval must disappear for the time being so that all women see and believe that consequences do exist," she said, adding that redemption should be "earned, not offered."

"If you want amends, you have to make them. You have to acknowledge the line in the sand. Once you do this, the next step is simple: Pick a side. Choose us," she wrote.

Within a week, Weinstein had been fired from his company and expelled from the Motion Picture Academy.

Now, in a post-Weinstein world, legions of women have felt empowered to speak out and share their own #MeToo stories—both on social media and in major news outlets. Weinstein sparked an avalanche of accusations against high-profile men in media, politics, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood, all with varying degrees of repercussions. Sexual harassment in the workplace is certainly nothing new, but it’s safe to say the issue is now, rightfully, taking center stage.

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the high-profile men who have accused of sexual harassment and/or assault since Weinstein, which we’ll keep updating as new allegations surface.
