Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas victim blames teammate over abuse allegations

Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas victim blames teammate over abuse allegations

"STOP VICTIM SHAMING. It is because of you that so many survivors live in fear".

Raisman, who just came forward with her own story of sexual abuse, shared a note on Twitter Friday in which she slammed people who question why victims do not come forward.

"It is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy", she wrote.

Ms. Biles's tweet drew thousands of retweets, likes, and a range of replies, many of which pillaged Ms. Douglas for failing to support Ms. Raisman.

She added, "Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd". "STAY STRONG." Of course, Douglas has since apologized for the way that her response came across.

This element is present in Biles' tweet, when she expresses her disappointment with Douglas for this perceived lack of support.

"R$3 egardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable".

'Shocks me that I'm seeing this but it doesn't surprise me. honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her, ' wrote Biles.

"I didn't correctly word my reply & I am deeply sorry for coming off like I don't stand alongside my teammates", Douglas wrote. Simone went on to say "I support you Aly & all the other women out there! You're so brainwashed to think, 'I thought he was so nice, '" she said in her interview with Kotb". "What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?"

A USA Gymnastics official suggested that she get treated by Dr. Nassar, saying that the registered osteopath who was a volunteer with the organization could help her sore heels and back pain.

"I didn't know anything differently", she said (via Mark Moore of the New York Post).

If we, as a society, are at the point where we feel more inclined to tell a woman how to prevent getting raped, which may not actually prevent it at all, instead of cultivating a culture where men do not assault and rape women, we've completely missed the mark and the point.

Nassar has a November 27 sentencing hearing after pleading guilty to receipt of child pornography, possession of child pornography and destruction and concealment of records in July. "He's the United States Olympic doctor and the USA Gymnastics doctor, and we were very lucky we were able to see him".
