MSU has no right to be quiet about issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault, nor should MSU sit back and allow these issues to boil over until the administration is forced to address them.
In order to create change, in order for every Spartan to move forward on a united front, in order for MSU and its Spartans to learn anything from the Nassar situation, there needs to be an open, honest dialogue from both sides. Spartans are doing their part.
For the Spartan community to continue its revolution, we have to remain vigilant in all circumstances. We have to question every alleged perpetrator, scrutinize every possible enabler and fight every incident of potential abuse.
At this point, MSU, you have a decision to make: Will you own up to mistakes and try to rebuild with the rest of the community, or will you become nothing more than “Michigan State University, Home of the Larry Nassar Scandal”?
Simon, if you’re the Spartan you claim to be, you will step down and bow out gracefully. We hope you make the right choice, because time’s up.
