Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed

  Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed 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."

"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.
