    Re: Sexual Abuse at Ohio State

    WHAT?!?

    I know at 18 I wouldn't have been equipped to handle a sexual predator. Why you can generalize that all kids should react in a certain way, especially when the predator was (as all are) selective in choosing his victims, it's beyond me.

    Just, wow!
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    As I said...

    Re: Sexual Abuse at Ohio State

    Blaming the victims is just sick and somehow it always manages to shock me when people do it even though it shouldn't since so many people do it.

    Unless you've been personally sexually abused, you have NO idea what they went through. It's quite possible that this was such a shock to them that they just froze until it was over. Again, you didn't go through what they did so don't even begin to question why they "allowed it to happen to them".

    My goodness.


    As for the OP, I'm an Ohio State fan and hope justice is served here in whatever capacity necessary. Some things are bigger than sports. I know justice certainly was NOT served at Penn State and that's why I've been vocal about it ever since.

    Great post Operator.

    Sometimes "school loyalty" clouds reasoning. The "my school is in trouble but it wasn't that big of a deal" mentality. All I can say as an IU fan is that if that stuff went on in Bloomington I would want retribution. If this kind of stuff happened to my my Son or Daughter, the perpetrator/s would be dead. Make no mistake I would seek my own court ruling. This stuff is sick and sad at the same time. Just makes me shake my head.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Re: Sexual Abuse at Ohio State

    I saw earlier that there was a civil rights lawsuit filed on Wednesday by 37 student athletes. The article said that the majority of them were from the football program. Not sure why this isnt a big deal nationally, but it should be!
