    Discussion of abuse in USAG - Nassar

    This is horrifying. This is very close to home and devastating in many ways. I've been sick about it all day, talking at length with other parents. Gymnastics Ontario released a letter to all members yesterday I think, and this particular coach's suspension was supposed to end Jan 26, but they...

    Discussion of abuse in USAG - Nassar

    So this monster Larry Nasser still has an active YouTube channel full of videos of him showing different treatments, and taping methods, and other physio stuff being demonstrated on young girls!! I have made a complaint to YouTube to have it taken down. If others want to, it might get...

    Discussion of abuse in USAG - Nassar

    I really hate when people misuse the word "literally", but by God this whole thing has literally made me vomit and cry ugly tears.
