@mrhunsaker @VanderbiltU @theNASEM @carlzimmer @meredithwadman @McLNeuro Exactly! Disturbing.
1) Who is responsible for oversight? enforcement? What are the so-called benchmarks these Unis are to meet? Are they enforceable vs #SexualMisconduct? Who determines this? @TIMESUPHC @MeTooSTEM @AnnOlivarius #Dartmouth7 @ADVANCEGeo @IBJIYONGI @JoshFessel
@mrhunsaker @theNASEM @carlzimmer @meredithwadman @McLNeuro @TIMESUPHC @MeTooSTEM @AnnOlivarius @ADVANCEGeo @IBJIYONGI @JoshFessel 2) Need to change public discourse from Action Collaborative members being seen as leaders to what many are--Unis with ongoing serious violations. Otherwise, these AC members can hide behind @theNASEM ‘spin’ @mbalter @k_langin #TIMESUPHC @TheOpEdProject @500womensci @ProfSharona

1/ Be it in the Catholic Church, the Jehovah's Witnesses or in the Evangelical movement, these church leaders don't treat cases of sexual abuse & misconduct as a crime but as a "sin". For them, "sin" needs to be dealt with internally, not in public. Abusers are thus protected.
2/ I was interviewed on the reasons behind sexual abuse cover-ups in the JWs last March on @CTVW5. Their prescription for "sin" is to adopt a "biblical worldview"; this prevents and discourages victims of abuse to alert the authorities.

3/ I also provided some details concerning the reasoning behind the cover-up of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct cases in the Evangelical church this short @YouTube clip.

1/ How a science dream can quickly turn into a #sexualmisconduct/#sexualabuse nightmare (A thread)
I've come to realize (specially on Twitter) that many people just assume everyone is supposed to understand things as they do, but the problem is that's a sheltered mindset...
2/ For a girl who loves science/sees scientists as basically god-like creatures of knowledge, coming in direct contact with an actual scientist in the field she loves can be a dream come true, specially if that scientist offers her the chance to be a part of that world...
3/ But what happens when this dreaming turns into a nightmare, well let me tell you... self loathing happens, fear happens, guilt over feeling stupid for trusting people happens. How do I know this? Because I'm talking about myself.
