Title: Sexual abuse cover up in the Gymnastics community.
Post by: Dlbiininja on January 22, 2018, 02:00:39 AM
I'm sure everyone's seen or at least heard of Nassir's long history and list of victims.    ESPN gives more details regarding this history of his.  Give it a read if you can stomach it.  Watch who you leave your kids with.

I wouldn't trust any adult male who went into GYMNASTICS COACHING of all fucking things.

It’s disgusting. A child or teen should never be examined alone by a health care provider - doctor, nurse, dentist, therapist - without an adult family member present. And any sane health care provider will insist that an adult family member is present as well.

eh. A male gymnast becoming a coach doesn't seem odd to me. Nassar wasn't a coach either. He was a doctor that primarily worked with gymnast.

I think its a thought that jumps into any parent's head in situations where their kid is going to be with another adult for extended periods without (the parent's) supervision.

It's a stupid thought based on nothing substantial.


Nassar is a piece of shit, but the suggestion a man can't coach gymnastics is flat out stupidity.

That's all aside from the fact that he was the doctor doing sports medicine and exploiting the girls, not the coach.

Never said it was a rational thought, just that its a thought that jumps into a parent's head in situations where their kid is going to be with another adult for extended periods without (the parent's) supervision.

Unsure if you're a parent or not, but if you are and thats never happened, you're lucky i guess. Being a parent is ll about being afraid of what might happen to your kid(s). Being a -good- parent is letting them go regardless, so they can grow.

He doesn't trust himself, therefore everyone else is equally untrustworthy.

It's one of the only sports dominated by the absolute youngest of women- it's like if you were a predator, it's EXACTLY the kind of position one would take. I just find it unseemly.

Yeah, read a bit further and found out he's some high-falutin' doctor with a lot of say, and not a coach. Same thing still applies.

Women are safe, so long as I don't become a shuffleboard coach.

Do you have the same ridiculous notions about men being elementary school teachers? What about single or stay at home dads?

No, because those are completely different things- and certainly not specifically-gendered. Gymnastics would put a man in close contact with very young, impressionable girls in very close one-on-one contact, in an arena where they are desperate to succeed and much more willing to do anything their coach or doctor says. It's like a man going out to be a tutor of only female students.

I'm not saying they're all dirty pedos; I'm just saying I'm NEVER surprised to hear news reports like this.

Having been part of a lot of sports and such, unless they are personal trainers they don't really get a lot of one on one time with the kids.

It seems that just about all of the coaches are men. Also, at the Olympic level, the coach is kind of like an extra parent. These kids spend a ridiculous amount of time with their coaches. At a certain point, you have to trust them. But a coach isn’t doing a physical exam.

Why would they need to be the exact same thing when they all fit your stupid criteria?

You're asserting they shouldn't be alone with young girls because they MIGHT be a rapist, based on no evidence whatsoever. It's flat out dumb to say what you're saying.


If you don't think elementary school teachers are alone with their students, you must have been homeschooled.

Well, the counter is the obvious double standard whenm it comes to women & their sex crimes with children/teens/minors.  I know they essentially made Leterneau(however you spell her name) into a love story once she was released from prison.  Women often are allowed & justified in their excuses, & not held as accountable as men in these sorts of crimes.  And we're know that generally they're sound kits more.  Due, to the presumption that their better at being nurturing  caregivers as opposed to manipulative predators.
