Ohio State Wrestlers and Sex Abuse
I’ve seen this story all over social media this week. The focus is on Republican Rep. Jim Jordan allegedly ignoring the abuse.
“I remember I had a thumb injury and went into Strauss’ office and he started pulling down my wrestling shorts,” he said. “I’m like, what the f— are you doing? And I went out and told Russ and Jim what happened. I was not having it. They went in and talked to Strauss.”
Here’s the rest. It’s highly editorialized, though, at this link.
Jordan is denying all accusations. This link gives the facts.

Trans People Having Enlisting Problems

The newest ban states: ‘Transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria — individuals who the policies state may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery — are disqualified from military service except under certain limited circumstances.’
Here’s more. It’s very eye opening. One person was denied because of knee surgery they had as an infant.
