Dear Karen Owen: There’s No Point Apologizing for the F— List Now

Karen Owen recently graduated from Duke, where she kept busy in her free time compiling a detailed list of every hot athlete she slept with. She put the results in a massive PowerPoint. And after sharing it with three friends – oops – it went viral. Jezebel has an interview with Karen, who is now embarrassed and contrite that it went public. But here’s the thing: Virality is exactly what a Power Point created to mock and rank popular men’s sexual prowess is destined for.

Karen tells Jezebel of the Fuck List:

“I regret it with all my heart. I would never intentionally hurt the people that are mentioned on that.”

But you know what? Lists like that are designed to be spread. It’s a bit late to feel bad about it.  And while Jezebel might not be in the business of spreading rumors about specific Duke athletes, Gawker relative Deadspin‘s not above it. The sports blog has Karen’s entire, uncensored slide show, complete with names and faces of the men detailed in it.
