“Complying with a demand by the US Olympic Committee (USOC)”, said by USA Gymnastics on Friday. Larry Nassar, The doctor, he was imprisoned by a judge in Lansing, Michigan on Wednesday to between 40 and 175 years.
Bitter statements were given by Olympic gold medal-winning gymnasts Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber and other female athletes as his victims in court. He had pleaded guilty to sexual assault charges.
The USOC had intimidated USA Gymnastics to strip of its power to run it’s sport if all 21 board directors had not resigned by next, Wednesday. As a result of the scandal, at least five members had said that they had resigned already.
Leslie King, a spokeswoman for USA Gymnastics, said in his email, “USA Gymnastics will
comply with the USOC requirements”. The senior sports official, where Nassar was previously working, retired on Friday, at Michigan State University.
When, university president Lou Anna Simon stepped down under pressure, then after two days, the departure of athletic director Mark Hollis came. Both when came into spotlight, said that they were unaware of Nassar’s abuse until public reports.
Office who prosecuted Nassar, his Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, co firmed on Twitter that the office is investigating the university. The national outcry over Nassar prompted the US House of Representation, Senate the Department of Education and the USOC to announce further investigation this week.
The House investigation will also examine allegations of sexual harassment by officials in other sports, including swimming and taekwondo.
Sexual Harassment huh? Well! Why guys think that they’re dominant by birth? Men don’t have any idea that how sexual harassment can be a major cause of trauma for girls.
Abusing sexually for one’s own pleasure and then calling oneself a ‘Man’ won’t make one anyhow. Being a girl, in contrary I am a rebel totally. I am frank to every second person that doesn’t mean that “I am available”.
This stereotypic thinking of men increasing the bar of sexual harassment. And girls those who are shy in real, why are they being sexually harassed?
Answer to this question is, “A MALE DOMINATED SOCIETY”. Deteriorating dreams of girls by abusing them sexually isn’t a “Real Man thing”.
All I can do is write about this thing, but god bless to this male dominated society for sustaining his foot by degrading women’s life and dreams.
