Disgusting. Vile. Hateful. These were a few of the words which sprung to many people’s minds when they first heard that two University of Missouri basketball players had assaulted a cheerleader. According to the police report, the two senior forwards are alleged to have broken the victim’s nose.
The shocking revelation that the cheerleader was a male and his attackers women injected some well-needed levity into the situation, and also highlighted the victim’s undeniable courage in both reporting this assault and in admitting to being a male cheerleader.
