Pastor: When young gymnasts wear sexy costumes abuse is inevitable

I guess even wearing the required attire for the sport you're involved with is still an invitation to be abused.

In today’s not at all shocking episode of Christian pastors blaming women’s own bodies for their sexual abuse, extremist Kevin Swanson has his moment. According to Swanson, Larry Nassar, who was convicted of sexually assaulting underage girls did so because gymnastics contains “a fair amount of immodesty.” I guess those 8 year olds should just stop with their sexy shoulder baring hair buns? Here's his whole infuriating quote:

“There is an infatuation with the body, and, of course, the sexual aspects of the body as well. Some sports encourage immodesty, revealing large portions of the body and this happens in some sports. These are the risky sports. Here they are, what are the risky sports? Gymnastics. Gymnastics and swimming. These are the sports in which there is an added risk.”

Swanson upholds the idea that men are just acting according to their masculine nature, it is female temptation that’s to blame, saying:

“Do you really want your daughters involved in a sport that involves a fair amount of immodesty in which red-blooded American male coaches are interacting with these girls?”

According to Swanson, the bodies of underage girls being viewed in a strong athletic context is the problem. “There is an infatuation with the body,” he said, “and, of course, the sexual aspects of the body as well. Some sports encourage immodesty, revealing large portions of the body and this happens in some sports”. (Never ever do Evangelicals blame a man in power)

So sumo wrestlers are asking for abuse I guess when they compete bare bottom

There’s nothing sexy about their outfits, unless you’re a pervert.

agreed pervert-
a person whose sexual behavior is regarded as abnormal and unacceptable

any man that gets turned on by looking at a child is sick

Exactly my point. There are perverts everywhere. Therefore what is so wrong about basic "DECENCY" for both males and females. Let me speak for myself... Maybe there are those who enjoy seeing the private parts of people (teens or whatever) being displayed for the whole world----I don't and I maintain that its indecent..... Is it okay for a son or daughter, or brother or cousin to see the nakedness of their relative...... We are humans and not animals, and we are suppose to act rationally with SELF-CONTROL.....

Yes, because you NEVER see rape in Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, etc, where 'modest' dress is mandatory. That girl on the bus in India never got gang raped in front of her boyfriend, then beaten to death. The foreign waitress in Saudi Arabia never got raped, then sent to jail for 'adultery'. Women in Pakistan never get raped or abused. Except it happens every day. I suppose those nice altar boys in their FULL BODY CONCEALING ROBES 'asked' for it, because Catholic priests are susceptible to the revealing two inches at the top of the neck, they asked for it also?

Actually, I go dressed very well on job hunts. Unfortunately, their first response is not to measure the skirt on my suit, or ask my qualifications, or ask me to submit a picture on my application, but 'do I speak (insert language of majority of local foreign community here)?' I have also been to many interviews that are a mere formality, when they fully intend to hire their best friends son/wife/nephew all along. So, just like your other arguments, you are ignorant, and need a better understanding of the world, you closet dwelling freak.

No need to call me names; exert some self-control; ......i'm for " decency" in society that's all..... Don't you see the world we are living in;... no self control. Everybody, just doing whatever they want.......walk into a school and kill everybody......Y'all cry out when something happens but don't look within yourselves to at least help minimize the causes of the problems.....

hello! it happened again! wardrobe malfunction in the Olympics. testament to what I have been saying all along
