Sexual Misconduct Thread - the tide keeps rolling in



Olympic Medalist Aly Raisman on 60 minutes last night. She is the latest to come forward to say she was molested by team USA doctor Larry Nassar, who has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 125 former patients under the guise of medical treatments. She called him a 'master manipulator' and a 'monster'.

Nassar, who was quietly fired by USA Gymnastics in the summer of 2015 and reported to the FBI, is currently in jail awaiting sentencing on federal child pornography charges—he pleaded guilty to those—and awaiting trial on 33 criminal sexual conduct charges related to the work he did as a physician in Michigan. Nassar had spent two decades working for MSU in addition to his work with the U.S. national team.

This is a profound problem, one that is clear we must speak about
And address all the varying shades in which it presents itself.

Aly Raisman appears on '60 Minutes' and 'Today' and makes her teammates proud

By D'Arcy Maine | Nov 13, 2017

Aly Raisman revealed she was sexually...rry Nassar last week ahead of the release of her book, "Fierce," in which she discusses the allegations. She appeared on Sunday's "60 Minutes" to bravely talk further about it.

"Why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up? Why not look at -- what about the culture?" she said. "What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?"

She makes a great point about looking at the whole culture, instead of just the girls. The Team USA doctor was doing this while they were at the Olympics.

Gal Gadot Has Reportedly Threatened To Walk If Brett Ratner Remains Involved With The "Wonder Woman" Franchise

Twitter is here for it.

Page Six is reporting that Gal Gadot, the face of the Wonder Woman franchise, has threatened to walk away if executive producer Brett Ratner — who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct in recent weeks — remains connected to the film

Gal Gadot will only be ...er is out

"Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.”

This one might hurt somebody's pocket.

Can we take the accused to court? Trial by Twitter is a slippery slope.

I’ve been wondering too how Justice will be served.
