And… the progressive PC police is at it again. Leftists have an affection for party pooping. Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s affection for Mexican housekeepers. Their target this time? The men’s soccer team at Harvard.
Harvard has cancelled the men’s soccer team’s 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.
Athletics Director Robert L. Scalise wrote in an email to Harvard student athletes that he decided to cancel the rest of the team’s season because the “practice appears to be more widespread across the team and has continued beyond 2012, including in 2016.”
Last week, The Crimson reported that the 2012 men’s soccer team created a “scouting report” of that year’s women’s soccer recruits, rating them numerically and assigning each a hypothetical sexual position. University President Drew G. Faust instructed OGC, Harvard’s team of lawyers, to “review” the matter.
Okay, so firstly, he or she who has not judged a person’s looks on a scale of 1-10, cast the first pillow. We don’t throw stones here. It’s a safe space.
Right, everyone does the “on a scale of one to ten,” thing. I mean everyone. Men, women, young, old, straight, gay, bi, trans. If you say you don’t put people on a looks scale, I think you’re a liar. And I never want to have coffee with you. Stick in the mud.
So canceling a sporting event because a group of men judged women’s looks? That’s just severe punishment. But, I guess the administration had to make them an example. An example that no act of rating beauty shall go unpunished.
The team didn’t publish the report or publicly humiliate the girls. It could be argued what they did was probably in poor taste. Sure. I guess. But, people rate other people sexually all the time. See above statements. Also, judging on physical attraction is kind scientific. Ever hear of Darwin? Natural selection dictates that we seek out the best mate. Good looks are a sign of fertility and health. Rating a woman based on her looks isn’t “sexist.” It’s evolution.
Okay, that might have been stretching it a bit. Doubtful the soccer players were planning which women would bear them more healthy children. But come on!
Progressives blame heterosexual guys for everything. Lena Dunham wants straight men to go extinct. Almost as much as she wants a constant flow of carbs from plate to mouth. Colleges will even expel men for the simple accusation of rape. Is there any doubt there’s an active war on men? Specifically straight men? Add this story to the growing pile of evidence. Just don’t mix it with bowl of noodles to be served to Lena Dunham.
So these guys did what guys do: look at pretty woman. Then judged who amongst them was the prettiest. My. If only they’d been sitting at a table with pens and paper, the women strutting on a stage in swimsuits, we could’ve avoided this whole “scandal.”
Next time the soccer team will just keep their report more clandestine. For despite Harvard (and all of leftism’s attempts) you cannot control people’s thoughts. Not from lack of trying, of course.
