1984 (Boycotted) Olympic Champion, Mary Lou Retton, tried to stop gymnastics sex abuse bill

October 14, 2017
Dominique Moceanu, a member of the 1996 "Magnificent 7" that won gold the first US team gold in Atlanta, made many tweets calling out people affiliated with USA Gymnastics for thier handling of sexual abuse. Over 140 gymnasts have sued Larry Nassar, a team doctor who was with USA Gymnastics for over 20 years and is currently in jail for child pornography, for sexual assault under the guise of treatment. USA Gymnastics was criticized for not reporting Nassar's behavior to authorities and conducting their own investigation instead. California Senator, Dianne Feinstein, and Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, created the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse Act of 2017, which would criminalize organizations like USA Gymnastics for failing to report sexual abuse to the authorities. It was revealed in the New York Times that Mary Lou Retton, the 1984 Olympic All Around Champion who only won because the best gymnastics team in the world, the Soviet Union, boycotted, went with the now ex-president of USA Gymnastics, Steve Penny, to Feinstein's office to stop the bill. Moceanu confirmed this happened and called Retton out for caring more about protecting USA Gymnastics and the Karoylis (their coaches who are accused of creating the atmosphere that allowed Nassar to take advantage of and abuse the gymnasts) then the safety of athletes.

Moceanu also said that NBC tried to bury the news in her 2012 book, Off Balance, about how the Karoylis were abusive towards her. NBC owns the rights to gymnastics coverage in the US and has made documentaries like "The Ranch" glorifying the Karoylis. They are also currently under fire for refusing to air Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein expose.

Bill Skarsgard Is Extremely Hot, and We Are Not Clowning Around

September 13, 2017

Whether or not your nightmares have been invaded by the new remake of Stephen King’s It, you’ve probably heard about the clown at the center of all the horrifying madness: Pennywise. But before you run away from this post in fear, I am here to tell you that you can take a deep breath, because Bill Skarsgard, the guy behind all that terrifying makeup, is actually super hot in real life.

The actor is the furthest thing from his onscreen character with hauntingly beautiful eyes and perfect lips. It also doesn’t hurt that he comes from a long line of famous and handsome men (his dad is actor Stellan Skarsgard and his brother is actor Alexander Skarsgard). Bill is slowly but surely blowing up on the Hollywood scene, and we have a feeling he’s going to shift from our nightmares to our daydreams in no time.
