Anonymous asked: to me, the problem is that gymnastike LINKED to the pictures which is the distribution of child pornography.
Yeah, that’s what people had been saying was bad but others were asking if just posting the article itself was bad. Links or not.
Personally posting the article at all was bad. USA gymnastics let them go to all their meets and coaches trusted them to be in their gym and posting that article like an hour after the story broke showed that they had no respect for the gymnasts or USA gymnastics and would throw them completely under the bus to make some money off of a gross story.
The fact that they actually linked to the child porn and then took over a week to write an apology, and only did so because usag kicked them to the curb, makes it even worse.
