Harvard Canceled Men's Soccer Season Over Sexual "Scouting Reports" of Women's Team

Harvard has canceled the season of its men’s soccer team, after investigating a report the team had produced a sexual “scouting report” of the Harvard women’s recruits in 2012. The investigation found the practice was more widespread and continued through 2016.

Incoming women’s recruits were rated based on appearance and assigned sexual positions. Here’s a description from the Crimson.

The author of the “report” often included sexually explicit descriptions of the women. He wrote of one woman that “she looks like the kind of girl who both likes to dominate, and likes to be dominated.”

Each woman was assigned a hypothetical sexual “position” in addition to her position on the soccer field.

“She seems relatively simple and probably inexperienced sexually, so I decided missionary would be her preferred position,” the author wrote about one woman. “Doggy style,” “The Triple Lindy,” and “cowgirl” were listed as possible positions for other women.

 

The document was found because the gentlemen and scholars who produced it placed it on a publicly available database.

The document and the entire email list the team used that season were, until recently, publicly available and searchable through Google Groups, an email list-serv service offered through Google.

Harvard could have secured a NCAA tournament bid beating Columbia on Saturday.
