David Puddy Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 Yikes. The subcommittee documents make clear that at least some BU hockey players, surrounded by adoring fans, had “the perception that they need not seek consent for sexual contact.”One player came close to admitting that. “You don’t ask [permission for sex] when you are drunk,” he told the task force, adding that he did not see how the actions of the two players charged last year constituted sexual assault. Another player used two slurs to describe women who “hook up with multiple guys,” then wondered, “What other word for them is there?” A female student told the task force that a player had shoved his hands down her pants at a party and refused to stop even as she was punching him. She did not report the incident to authorities because, she said, “that’s just what [bU hockey players] do.” Another told of a Facebook posting “in which hockey players boast about their sexual exploits,” referring to conquests as “kills.” Parker told the task force he had stressed the importance of being respectful to women and advised players to avoid group sex, which the confidential report notes players engage in with surprising regularity. “However,” Parker is quoted as saying, “my job is not to say, ‘You guys gotta be celibate.’ ” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
