This paper describes the AKD team’s system designed for SemEval-2023 Task 10: Explainable Detection of Online Sexism (EDOS). We implement a simple fine-tuned GPT-3 model, ranking 26 on the leaderboard for task A. We also discuss different approaches to interpretability in the context of critiquing the EDOS task’s sub-category oriented approach. Finally, we propose counterfactual replacement analysis, a novel prototype technique for approaching explainability.
