I’m sorry.

I know one person was deeply hurt by my words, I would like to extend a dialogue and personal apology to you if you’d like it, and understand I cannot take back what I said, I just want you to know that I feel a deep remorse in hurting you, because I do in fact admire you greatly.

Additionally, and by mistake I misgendered a reporter, this has been rectified in the original article, and i will do my best to avoid mistakes of this caliber in the future, again I apologize for this.
