  1. The first and the last lesson .. men doctor for men patients and frmale doctors for female patients… this is the results of playing with life rules … studies and experience with life all tell is men and female cannot be friends why? Because the nature role pheromones spread all the room when female and male in the room .. even daughters when they grow up boundaries have to set for brothers and fatherd they can't sleep to gather like when sister or daughter when she was child .. female is female they spreading there pheromones naturally and males of the house can have wrong behaviors because of femlae pheromones goes in side there brain and take control.

  2. Donald Trump's terrist inappropriate sexual acts to the Miss universe contest girls guesss where? In Russia guess what being done ABOUT it nothing not a thing. Jim Jordan did it the boys wrestling team in Ohio break all the laws you want at the top but you better be white Bill Cosby got a stained name for nothing

  3. Dominique Dawes should make the laws. Dominique Dawes doesn't eat frozen custard. She eats healthy mustard. She puts it on her black beans. She puts on a little bit of low-fat sour cream. She sprinkles on some oregano. She stays completely away from sinful Marijuana. She mixes seedless black grapes with blackberries. She adds non-fat yogurt, cinnamin, ginger and the no-sugar added juice of blueberries.

  4. All the abuse took place in Texas of course! It's always Texas and Florida!

    “How a serial predator like Dr  Nassar could have preyed on so many young girls for a long time in such a flagrant fashion is appalling,” Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) said during a House debate of the bill in January. 

    Yes, how Poe, for all these years right under the noses of the Republicans in their own territory!?

    The GOP turned their eyes away to their co-republican QAnon Nassar!

    Texas law required the immediate reporting to law enforcement of suspected child sexual abuse, but because of the two-year statute of limitations on charges related to such actions, no charges of failure to report could be brought in Walker County, officials said.

    Trump didn't even want to sign Democrat Feinstein's Bill stopping such acts in the future.

    After much time went by, Trump signed the bill behind closed doors, as his administration deals with its own abuse scandal. White House staff secretary Rob Porter and speechwriter David Sorensen both resigned last week after facing allegations of domestic abuse. Trump ― who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 21 women – defended Porter even after the allegations against him were made public and only said Wednesday that he is “opposed to domestic violence."

  5. This could have been stopped earlier but TEXAS dropped Nassars charges and let him walk!

    Larry Nassar, the former sports doctor who admitted molesting some of the nation's top gymnasts, had six charges for second-degree sexual assault of a child dropped by the Walker County District.

    Attorney HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A survivor referred to him as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
    Larry Nassar sexually assaulted multiple athletes during his tenure with USA Gymnastics and Michigan State Victims said assaults occurred at the Karolyi Ranch, located deep in the Sam Houston National Forest near Huntsville, Texas.

  6. It’s not just the culture you literally have people walking around with dead tissue in there brains and then when there is a problem with behavior everyone acts mystified. CTE and TBI is a major problem in gymnastics. When your brain Works good you work good and when you hurt it you hurt your life. If she wants to help she can get a spect scan of her brain and post the results like Justin Bieber and Logan Paul did..
