After the Harvard Men’s Soccer team rated the Women’s team based on sexual objectification, they took action.

Harvard recently cancelled the men’s soccer team’s season after it was discovered that the team continually produced vulgar and explicit documents rating female soccer team recruits on their perceived sexual appeal and physical appearance.

“I think what hurt the most was not necessarily reading what was said about me, but reading what was said about girls that I really care about,” said one young woman.

Watch the video of the Harvard women’s soccer team responding to the rating scandal here:

Their letter to the men’s soccer team concludes:

“To the men of Harvard’s soccer and any future men who may have claimed our bodies and chose to objectify us as sexual objects, in the words of one of us we say together, I can offer you my forgiveness, which is and forever will be the only part of me that you can ever claim as yours.”
