Reading Riley Gaines’ statement today on her unavoidable encounter with Thomas’s penis at the NCAA swim meet, I was wondering why he wasn’t prosecuted for sexual harassment for his actions at Penn. I mean, at least for the next 10 minutes or so, sexual harassment is still defined as being unwanted sexual advances in a place where such advances are not expected to be found. Say a male penis in a women’s locker room.
I don’t recall who the two women were that submitted complaints on behalf on the Penn team, but they are well known for their work and advocacy. I remember reading their submission, which took into account why they had standing on the swimmer’s behalf. It covered Thomas’s indecent exposure in the locker room, and I recall it being submitted to the administration, athletic director, Penn IX officer, and the DA of Philadelphia.
Of course, I don’t expect msm coverage, but they were women I’d expect to hear from - maybe Kara Dansky and the person from Saving Women’s Sports…. Anyone have an update?
