Comment re: Baylor football and sexual assault

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/09/sports/baylor-football-sexual-assault.html?_r=0

 

The article doesn't come out and say it, but the problem at Baylor is the intersection of Baptist Christianity and big-money college sports. The Christianity part causes a naive understanding of male sexuality, female sexuality, and a denial that young people could do bad things -- even that football coaches and players carry profound social power, the kind that freezes otherwise well-intentioned people (like the nurses who say "there's nothing we can do" ). The big-money sports, of course, draw young men prone to violence and entirely indifferent to education, while the coaches are greedy for wins and money and entirely indifferent to education and practice selective ignorance in order to serve themselves. Truly a toxic stew.
