Let’s add this up. A couple of guys come to know that one significant adult around the football team is chasing young boys...and it does not appear that any of them ran to the police. Among ninety-nine percent of us....we would have simply called in this ‘tip’ and let the cops investigate. They would prove or disprove the situation. These guys around the Penn State team didn’t want to involve cops, and you have to wonder why.

there have been several cases of unwanted sexual harassment of college students by coaches, some minors and most under 21.

A few are handled by campus cops, and are quickly hushed up.

Most cases seem to be young girls being harassed by female coaches, and nothing has ever been done, except to let the students out of their scholarships.

There is a complete double standard at play.

That’s simply not the case. You don’t know the subject matter the way you think you do.

It is not my intention to excuse or even downplay what DIDN’T happen. My point is that we’ve degenerated as a culture, about sex in particular.

Also, did you ever hear of Kitty Genovese? Not 99%, but 100% of the people who witnessed her murder did NOTHING?
Did not call the police, did not go to her aid. DID NOTHING!!!

There’s something in the human psyche that I can’t begin to understand much less explain.
