ADMIN NOTE – STOP BEING ASSHOLES

Since Katelyn Ohashi took to her blog to reveal the struggles with weight and body image she’s battled throughout her career, we have received MANY inappropriate confessions. In light of the influx of nastiness, I wanted to pop by to remind everyone to get familiar with our regulations before submitting a confession and to clarify a few things:

  • We do not accept confessions suggesting, implying, or stating outright that a gymnast is lying about a health issue. Any confessions we receive of this nature will be deleted.
  • We do not accept confessions suggesting, implying, or stating outright that a gymnast is lying about abuse. Any confessions we receive of this nature will be deleted.
  • We do not accept confessions suggesting, implying, or stating outright that Katelyn is “forging diary entries” or “making up stories for attention.“ Any confessions we receive of this nature will be deleted.
  • We do not accept confessions expressing that someone “looks like” they do or do not have an eating disorder. Any confessions we receive of this nature will be deleted.
  • We do not accept victim blaming confessions. Any confessions we receive of this nature will be deleted. Please ask me if you have questions as to what constitutes victim blaming.

Honestly, I’m not in a great place right now, and it’s not helping me to see a ton of obnoxious bullshit about a young woman who’s clearly been through a lot every time I’m modding the inbox. PLEASE stop with the “Katelyn is a LIAR and a FRAUD and nothing even seems WRONG WITH HER blah blah” submissions – they’re disgusting and inappropriate!

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions/comments/concerns.
