Harvard's Mens Soccer Team Season Is Canceled Due To "Ranking" Women

Apparently, it's a tradition at Harvard for the guy on the soccer team to rank female soccer players on how hot they are. Harvard President was actually proactive and ended their season, although the school knew of this "tradition" of ranking the freshman women's soccer team since 2012.

An excerpt from CNN:

Harvard was scheduled to play two more regular season games. The team now will forfeit them and "decline any opportunity to achieve an Ivy League championship or to participate in the NCAA Tournament this year," Scalise wrote.

"We strongly believe that this immediate and significant action is absolutely necessary if we are to create an environment of mutual support, respect, and trust among our students and our teams," he added.

Going forward, Harvard Athletics will partner with the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response and other Harvard College resources to educate all student-athletes on "the seriousness of these behaviors and the general standard of respect and conduct that is expected," he said.

"Harvard Athletics has zero tolerance for this type of behavior."

I can see sitting them all down and chastising them for there behaviors , certainly publishing it is improper but I don't think ending the season was called for.

OK, so now men are not allowed to determine how attractive they find women. Good job...that will teach us and never again will we look at women and make judgements as to how attractive they are. What the fuck were we thinking?

I don't think that the fact that they ranked them is so much a problem, as the fact that they "published" the rankings. The whole thing came to public light when a reporter at the school newspaper received a copy of the rankings "scorecard" that was being circulated "underground", and wrote a story about it in the newspaper. From my understanding, the reporter didn't publish the actual "scorecard" in the paper, just a few excerpts from it (names of the girls they pertained to omitted, of course), and the fact that there was a "scorecard" being circulated.

Agreed. And apparently the ranking of the girls' team included speculation about what sexual positions and sexual acts each of the girls favored. All of this was compiled into a lengthy email and sent out everywhere. So it goes way beyond guys just talking about who's cute.
