Harvard Cancels Men’s Soccer Season After Google Doc Exposed


HARVARD’S ATHLETICS DIRECTOR HAS
CANCELED ITS MEN’S SOCCER TEAMS SEASON AFTER IT WAS FOUND THAT
THEY HAD CREATED SO-CALLED SCOUTING REPORTS THAT SAID SOME
PRETTY QUESTIONABLE THINGS ABOUT WOMEN IN THE SCHOOL,
PARTICULARLY WOMEN WHO ARE IN THE SOCCER TEAM AT THE SCHOOL. YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT SPORTS TO YOU? I REALLY DON’T. THIS IS NOT SPORTS STORY, IT HAS
TO DO WITH SOME OF THEIR QUESTIONABLE BEHAVIOR AND THE
WAY THAT THEY WROTE IN PUBLIC DOCUMENTS ABOUT WOMEN IN A
VERY DEGRADING WAY. HARVARD HAS CANCELED THE MEN’S
SOCCER TEAMS SEASON AFTER AN OFFICE OF GENERAL COUNSEL REVIEW
FOUND THAT THE TEAM CONTINUED TO PRODUCE VULGAR AND EXPLICIT
DOCUMENTS RATING WOMEN ON THEIR PERCEIVED SEXUAL APPEAL
AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. APPARENTLY THESE SCOUTING
REPORTS BEGAN IN 2012, AT LEAST THEY GOT CAUGHT IN 2012. THE 2012 MEN’S SOCCER TEAM
CREATED A SCOUTING REPORT OF THAT YEARS WOMEN’S SOCCER
RECRUITS, RAIDING THEM NUMERICALLY AND ASSIGNING EACH A
HYPOTHETICAL SEXUAL POSITION. CBS REPORTED ON THIS AND THEY
GIVE A LITTLE MORE DETAIL ABOUT IT. LET’S TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT IT
I’M GOING TO READ YOU EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAID IN THESE
SCOUTING REPORTS. ON THE CAMPUS OF HARVARD
UNIVERSITY, THE REACTION WAS SWIFT. THE NINE PAGE DOCUMENT FROM 2012
WAS FIRST UNCOVERED LAST MONTH BY THE STUDENT RUN NEWSPAPER,
THE HARVARD CRIMSON THE WHICH DETAIL THE SEXUALLY EXPLICIT
EVALUATION OF INCOME NEEDING FEMALE SOCCER PLAYERS BY THE MEN
BEAR THE MEN’S TEAM. THAT LIST WITH EMAIL TO
TEAMMATES WITH SOME RESPONDING. CALLED THE SCOUTING REPORTS, THE
LIST CATALOG THE WOMEN BASED ON PHYSICAL APPEARANCE, THEIR
SEXUAL APPEAL, NUMERICAL SCORES AND IN SOME CASES,
DESCRIBED IN DETAIL A SEXUAL POSITION ASSIGNED TO EACH WOMAN. THE CRIMSON BECAME AWARE OF THE
DOCUMENTS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. MURIEL KLEIN IS THE PRESIDENT
OF THE HARVARD CRIMSON AND A SENIOR AT THE UNIVERSITY. IT WAS A PUBLICLY AVAILABLE
DOCUMENT ON THE INTERNET I WAS ACTUALLY TAKEN DOWN AFTER WE
CONTACTED THE MEMBERS OF THE 2012 SOCCER TEMPER, DOC WAS
AFTER THE ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED LATE LAST MONTH SCHOOL
ADMINISTRATORS OPEN AN INVESTIGATION WHICH CONCLUDED
THE LEWD SCOUTING REPORTS WERE MORE WIDESPREAD ACROSS THE TEAM
THEN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT AND THE PRACTICE HAD CONTINUE
INTO THIS YEAR. THE REMAINDER OF THE MEN’S
SEASON WAS IN CANCEL. AND THEY WERE THE TOP SCHOOL
IN THE IVY LEAGUE WHATEVER DIVISION OR WHATEVER YOU
CALL IN SOCCER. IT’S A BIG DEAL IN A SERIOUS
CONSEQUENCE BUT I WOULD ARGUE THAT WHAT THEY DID IS
PRETTY SERIOUS. IT’S ONE THING IF YOU WERE GOING
TO HAVE YOUR BOYS TALK ABOUT THAT WOMAN IS HOT AND I LIKE HER
WHATEVER YOU MEN TALK ABOUT. YOU KNOW HOW YOU ARE GOING TO
MOVE ON THEM LIKE A BENCH OR SOMETHING. THAT IS A LITTLE FAR. IT’S ANOTHER THING TO CREATE A
PUBLICLY AVAILABLE DOCUMENT WHERE YOU NAME INDIVIDUALS
COMING INTO THE SCHOOL, THESE ARE FRESHMEN, AND YOU REFER TO
THEM AND SAY THINGS LIKE SHE LOOKS LIKE THE KIND OF GIRL WHO
BOTH LIKES TO DOMINATE AND LIKES TO BE DOMINATED. HER GUM TO TOOTH RATIO IS ABOUT
1 TO 1, MAKING FUN OF HER SMILE. YEAH, SHE WANTS CAULK. SHE SEEMS TO BE VERY STRONG,
TALL, AND MANLY, SO I GIVE HER THREE BECAUSE I FELT BAD. NOT GUILTY. SO WE MIGHT HAVE REALLY A
STRONG DISAGREEMENT HERE. THEY DIDN’T MAIL THIS TO THE
FEMALE TEAM. THEY MADE A PUBLICLY
AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET THAT IS A GOOGLE DOC. WHY WOULD ANYONE GO INTO HARVARD
MEN’S SOCCER GOOGLE DOC WERE THERE TALKING TO ONE ANOTHER? AHEAD OF THEIR STUDENT
NEWSPAPER FOUND THE DOCUMENT. I KNOW SHE HAD A GREAT TIME
PUBLISHING IT AND SHE SHOULD, SHE IS DOING HER JOB AS A
JOURNALIST, BUT IT IS NOT LIKE THEY PUT ON FACEBOOK OR
TWEETED IT OUT. THAT IS A GOOGLE DOC
SHARED IN A GROUP. YES IT IS TECHNICALLY PUBLIC BUT
IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE PUBLIC MEANING THEY ARE NOT RUBBING
THEIR FACES IN IT. YOUNG COLLEGE GUYS RATED THE
APPEARANCE OF YOUNG COLLEGE WOMEN. SHOCKING BREAKING NEWS ALERT. TOTALLY NOT GUILTY IN MY
OPINION. JUST GUILTY OF BEING DUMPED. I DON’T EVEN THINK IT’S DOWN. I THINK IT IS DUMB TO PUT IN
A GOOGLE DOCUMENT. I THINK THAT PART IS DUMBÖ WITH
A HARVARD OR ANYTHING. SO YOU WOULD BE COOL WITH
YOUR DAUGHTER GOING TO COLLEGE AND THEN READING ABOUT HOW THE
MEN’S SOCCER TEAM TALKS ABOUT HER WANTING CAULK? THAT’S WHAT GUYS TALK ABOUT THAT THAT GUIDES TALK ABOUT AND
THEN THEY TALK ABOUT GRABBING GOES BY THE PUSSY. THEY DON’T. THAT’S DIFFERENT. THAT’S AGGRESSIVE. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHARM
STUFF AND THIS STUFF IS TRUMPED TALKED ABOUT WHAT HE
WOULD DO AND WHAT HE OUTLINED WAS SEXUAL ASSAULT. I JUST DO AND I DON’T ASK THEM. I GRABBED THEIR GENITALS AND I
DON’T ASK THEM AND I GET AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE I AM A STAR. THAT IS WHAT HE SAID. THAT INVOLVES LITERAL ACTUAL
SEXUAL ASSAULT AND IT TURNS OUT ACCORDING TO THE COMPLAINTS
OF WOMEN LODGED AFTERWARDS, HE ACTUALLY DID THOSE THINGS. THE SOCCER TEAM DIDN’T SEXUALLY
ASSAULT ANYBODY. JUST BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T
SEXUALLY ASSAULT ANYONE OR PUT THEIR HANDS ON ANYONE BASED ON
WHAT WE KNOW IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT THIS ISN’T WRONG. IF YOU AGREE WITH POLICIES AND
LAWS AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE, WHY DOESN’T
THIS FALL UNDER THAT CATEGORY? THERE WERE A GROUP OF MALE
EMPLOYEES IN THIS OFFICE WRITING A SIMILAR DOCUMENT
AND I WANTED TO YOU. 100% PERCENT DIFFERENT. WHY? I’LL YOU WHY BECAUSE — ?BUFFERING? WE’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR AS LONG
AS HUMANITY HAS EXISTED. THEY PUT IN A GOOGLE DOC. NOT GUILTY. YOU KNOW HOW THAT’LL JUMP
SAID THIS IS LOCKER ROOM TALK WHEN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHAT
HE SAID IN THE ASSAULT STUFF? THIS IS LOCKER ROOM TALK. IT’S NOT NECESSARILY DEFENSIBLE. IT’S PUERILE. IT’S TERRIBLE, BUT THIS IS
LOCKER ROOM TALK. THERE’S A LINE IN A LIMIT. THOUGH, CENK UYGUR SAYS
NOT GUILTY. THEY ARE GUILTY OF THIS. THEY DID THIS AND THERE SHOULD
BE A CONSEQUENCE TO HAVING THIS COME OUT. WHAT ARE THEY GUILTY OF? THEY ARE GUILTY OF DEGRADING,
BAD COMPORTMENT AND EYES OF HARVARD, SETTING A TERRIBLE
EXAMPLE FOR OTHER STUDENTS, OF CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE ñ I AM NOT SAYING HIGH AND MIGHTY
THAT THOSE THINGS DON’T HAPPEN. THERE ARE FRATERNITIES AND
SORORITIES AND TEAMS AND SCHOOLS AND PEOPLE ARE ALL YOUNG
AND ALL OF THAT, BUT I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A CONSEQUENCE TO
SAYING THINGS LIKE THIS IN A PUBLIC WAY AS A GROUP OF PEOPLE
THAT THE GRADES OTHER PEOPLE. THE ONLY THING YOU GUYS HAVE
TO STAND ON IS THAT IT WAS A GOOGLE DOC. THAT IS WHAT I’M SAYING. THEORETICALLY DOES POSSIBLE
THAT SOMEONE COULD GO INTO YOUR GOOGLE DOC AND FIND THAT. IF THEY RUBBED IT IN, IF THEY
DID IN A PUBLIC WAY, I WOULD BE WITH YOU DOTSON CALLED FOR. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT IN
PRIVATE, THAT’S FIND OUT IF YOU MAKE IT PUBLIC, THEN ANNA IS
WRITING TO BECOMES INTIMIDATION AND UGLY. AND MAKES PEOPLE FEEL
UNCOMFORTABLE. HERE THEY DID NOT INTEND FOR IT
TO BE PUBLIC AND THEY MADE AN ERROR BY PUTTING IT IN
A GOOGLE DOC. TERMS OTHER PEOPLE CAN
LOOK AT THAT THE THESE ARE CONVERSATIONS THAT
ARE HAPPENING EVERY UNIVERSITY AND THEY DIDN’T WRITE IT DOWN AND THAT’S WHY HAVE A PROBLEM
WITH THIS DEATH SENTENCE SANCTION FOR THIS KID PLAYING
FOR THE YEAR. IS A DEFENSE OF WHAT THEY DID
BUT IT IS JUST SORT OF THAT IS BOYS AND GIRLS AND BOYS
ARE UGLY. BY THE WAY, I’M NOT
CONVINCED OF THAT. I WON’T EVEN GRANT THAT. THEIR LANGUAGE CAN BE. FORGET WHAT I SAID. WE DO REPORT ON A LOT OF STORIES
INVOLVING WOMEN IN ATHLETIC GROUPS CREATING THESE TYPES OF
DOCUMENTS WERE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SIZE OF A MAN’S CAULK
AND WHETHER OR NOT HE IS WORTH BEING RATED AT A 10 OR IF HE IS
WORTH BEING RATED AT A -5. WE ALSO TALK ABOUT THAT THEY DIDN’T PUT AT A GOOGLEÖ
WHEN YOU GO TO A CLUB, UNIQUE TALK ABOUT THE GUYS AND WHETHER
THEY ARE HOT OR NOT? THE CONVERSATION ñ DO YOU HUMOR THEIR APPROACH
BY THE THEIR HEART OR NOT? THAT IS SO DIFFERENT THAT NOTICE RATING PEOPLE ON
THEIR ATTRACTIVENESS. THAT IS NOT JUST BRAIDING
THEM ON THEIR TRACTIVE. TALKING ABOUT A WOMAN SAYING
FIRST OF ALL, THESE ARE COLLEGE FRESHMEN COMING IN,
BEING RECRUITED UNDER THE SOCCER TEAM AND THEY ARE BEING
MINIMIZED TO NOTHING MORE THAN FOR CHINA’S, LET’S KEEP IT REAL,
IS IT ATTRACTIVE OR NOT THE EVERY TIME I WALKED INTO A
CLUB IS REDUCED TO A POCKET. IT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT. I DON’T GO INTO A CLUB EVEN
THOUGH I GUESS IS WOULDN’T BOTHER MEN I DON’T GOING TO A
CLUB THINKING YEAH, HE WANTS PUSSY. WE DON’T TALK LIKE THAT. DO I DASH SOME GIRLS DO. LET ME FINISH MY POINT. WE DON’T GO IN THERE ñ
I DON’T KNOW. GO-AHEAD. I’M SORRY I INTERRUPTED YOU. I TOTALLY LOST MY TRAIN
OF THOUGHT. YOU THINK IT IS OKAY, WE’VE A
DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. WHEN WE HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT
SO-CALLED RAPE CULTURE ESPECIALLY IN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS
AND WHEN WE HAVE STORIES INVOLVING FRATS GOING IN FRONT
OF WOMEN’S GROUPS OR SORORITIES SAYING THINGS LIKE YES NO MEANS
YES, AND YES MEANS A KNOW AND WE GET MAD ABOUT THAT, WE CAN’T
GET MAD ABOUT THAT BECAUSE APPARENTLY THAT’S HAVE A
BEHAVIOR IS ACCEPTABLE, YOU JUST HAVE TO BE A LITTLE MORE
SECRETIVE ABOUT IT THAT YOU CAN BE PUBLIC ABOUT IT. THAT IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE. I TOTALLY DISAGREE. WHEN YOU CHIT AND PUBLIC YOUR
INTENT IS TO INTIMIDATE PEOPLE AND SAY YOU ARE IN CHARGE AND
THEY ARE WORTHLESS. WHEN YOU ARE CHANTING PUBLICLY,
ESPECIALLY SOMETHING THAT CRASS. IF WE SAY THEY MEANT TO DO THIS
IN PRIVATE, BUT THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT, THAT IS IT. ANY GUYS OUT THERE OR WOMEN OUT
THERE, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT ANYBODY’S BODIES AND
WHETHER YOU DO THEM OR NOT. THAT GUY CAME BY AND YOU DIDN’T
FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE AT ALL? HE WAS 400 POUNDS AND HE SAID
SOMETHING AWKWARD. NO, DON’T YOU DARE JUDGE
HIM ON HIS LOOKS. WE WILL KICK YOU AT A SCHOOL. WE WILL END YOUR PROGRAM. YOU JUST REDUCED HIM TO A BODY. THAT IS WHAT EVERY WOMAN DOESN’T
A CLUB, THAT IS WHAT EVERY GUY DOESN’T A CLUB. THAT’S IT EVERY GUY IN EVERY
GIRL DOESN’T COLLEGE. BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND
WE LOOK AND SAY IT IN MY ATTRACTED TO YOU OR NOT? THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS. THEY MADE THE MISTAKE OF
ACCIDENTALLY SOMEWHAT MAKING IT PUBLIC. EVERY GUY NEVER GOES HAD THIS
CONVERSATION. LET ME TRY TO CALMLY EXPLAIN
THE IMPORTANCE OF LANGUAGE. YOU ARE MINIMIZING THIS TO
NOTHING MORE THAN PEOPLE RATING SOMEONE AS HOT OR NOT. THIS GOES FURTHER THAN THAT
BECAUSE OF THE LANGUAGE INVOLVED. 2 WOMEN JUDGMENT BASED ON THE
WAY THEY LOOK? OF COURSE THEY DO, THAT IS
HUMANS ACTIVITY AND NATURE THAT IS SOMETHING WE AGREE ON. IT IS DIFFERENT WHEN YOU REFER
TO AN INDIVIDUAL AS SOMEONE WHO WANTS COCK. WHEN YOU USE THAT TYPE OF
LANGUAGE, IT IS DEGRADING. IT’S NOT ONLY GOD MEN ARE TRYING
TO FIND OUT WHETHER THEY THOUGHT THINK PEOPLE ARE
ATTRACTIVE. IT’S MORE ABOUT THE WAY THEY SPEAK ABOUT THEM AND
THE WAY THEY DEGRADE THEM. I THINK THE LANGUAGE IS WRONG
AND WE DISAGREE ON THAT THE LUSTING, I AGREE WITH YOU
THAT YOU BOILED IT DOWN TO THE PART THAT WE DISAGREE ON. THE LANGUAGE THERE, IF IT WAS
PUBLIC, I WOULD AGREE WITH YOU. IF THEY WENT AND CHANTED IT IN
FRONT OF THE GIRLS SOCCER TEAM, YOU ALL WANT CAULK. THAT IS SUPER UGLY. IT’S DEGRADING AND INTIMIDATING. YOU TOOK THE WORST EXAMPLE OF
WHAT ONE OF THEM WROTE IN JUST TO HIS FRIENDS AND THEN YOU MAKE IT PUBLIC AND SAY SEE, HE MEANT
TO DEGRADE WOMEN. KNOW HE MADE TO MAKE A JOKE
AMONG HIS FRIENDS. THIS IS ACTUAL LOCKER ROOM TALK. DO THEY ALL THINK KNOW THAT’S A
FACT, SHE WANTS CAULK. THEY DON’T KNOW. THEY ARE JUST KIDS WHO ARE LIKE
THAT ONE IS TOO TALL, THAT WAS TOO SHORT. SHE WANTS THIS AND SHE
WANTS THAT. AND YES, SOMETIMES THEY SAY IN
SUPERCROSS LANGUAGE. THE WHOLE DIFFERENCES WHETHER
THEY MEANT TO PUT THOSE WOMEN DOWN IN PUBLIC IN A WAY THAT
THEY WOULD ACTUALLY HOLD THEM BACK DIE IF THEY MEANT TO DO
THAT THAN I AM HUNDRED PERCENT ON YOUR SIDE. I DON’T THINK THEY MEANT
TO DO THAT. I THINK THEY MEANT HAVE A
PRIVATE CONVERSATION THAT NOW WE ARE ALL PRIVY TO BECAUSE THEY
MADE A MISTAKE OF PUTTING IT INTO
THE DOCUMENT.
