1. Abuse is rampant throughout both male and female athletics.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, and in coming years I think we could see an awakening on this issue similar to the Catholic Church abuse that went unaddressed for years.

The other day I saw a story about an NHL player who said he was assaulted:

The Chicago Blackhawks settled a lawsuit filed by a former player who said he was sexually assaulted by an assistant coach during the team's Stanley Cup-winning season in 2010.

In an emotional, televised interview, Beach disclosed detail of his assault, how the team treated him, and the emotional fallout of his assault. Beach was 20 years old at the time of his attack.

If it's happening in the pros, then it must be rampant on the lower levels.
