You can always tell a Harvard boy, you just can't get him to grow up

The Crimson reports the Harvard men's cross-country team keeps a spreadsheet about women athletes, but that it no longer includes notes on specific physical attributes or which women seem to be getting which kind of dick.

"We have really changed the team culture since then, and now the spreadsheet is clean and we try to refrain from making comments like that," [the current team captain] said.

"the questionable and weird spreadsheet we maintain on various women athletes, well, we've really toned down the locker room talk. like, trump wouldn't even want to have anything to do with it anymore. i'm proud of this step we've taken with the spreadsheet we still have for some reason."

Didn't someone at Harvard write an app for that, like 10-15 years ago? Whatever happened to that guy.

If it's not to judge women members of the team, what the hell is on the spreadsheet, their favorite color?

what dance steps they prefer, so the fellows know whether to study fox trot or rhumba.

Why keep a spreadsheet? What is the point of it?

Depends. Is the data relational?

One year when I was at Harvard in the 1970's it emerged that some women at MIT were keeping notes on the men they dated and rating them on their attributes and skills. The men of MIT and Harvard were not amused, but the scandal never attracted the attention of college authorities. It's certainly not something anybody's Office of General Counsel would have taken an interest in.

I remember that. They didn't just keep notes privately, they published the list in an "alternative" newspaper called thursday, which I also happened to write for at the time. It got everyone's attention since there were thousands of copies distributed all over campus. The two women and one editor were put on academic probation, and another editor was suspended from MIT for three months, according to MIT's other newspaper The Tech.

Here is a censored version of the article with last names grayed out.

Were you the guy I saw at the outdoor concert on Briggs a few days after that with the Tshirt that read "thursday" with four stars underneath? That was pretty impressive in those days. It meant that someone had to pretty much immediately cut a silkscreen and ink that shirt.

I remember those T-shirts but I don't think I ever had or wore one.

Suspended for three months from the end of May to the end of August. Hmm.

It would mean no housing over the summer, and it would mean no UROP research employment, either.

Not too bright.

It's bad enough to behave like that. But to do it in writing, and Internet, is just asking to be shamed nationally.
