Asteroid 17185, McDavid, was discovered on November 14, 1999 by Charles W. Juels at Fountain Hills, Arizona. It has a period of 4 years, 6 days.
It was named for astronomer (and reportedly, accomplished amateur saxophone player) David McDavid (born 1950), who worked on the NASA International Ultraviolet Explorer from 1989 to 1995 and is now with the University of Virginia.
Astrologically, McDavid seems to relate to how one deals with attacks, invasion, humiliation or criminality; also, sexuality issues.
There was a 1981 TV movie called The Violation of Sarah McDavid in which Patty Duke played a high-school teacher raped in her classroom who then finds that her bosses are more interested in protecting their own butts than helping her get justice or making their schools a safe place in which to work.
Desiree Washington, who once had a bad run-in with Mike Tyson. If you're a good athlete, you can get away with a lotbut there are limits.
John Geoghan, Catholic priest; pedophile.
Elizabeth Smart has McDavid in the sixth house, conjunct Pandora (making a splash, having an impact) and 1998 BU48 (the way things are), sextile Asbolus (awful things) and Chaos (activism), trine the Sun (to shine), Pluto (criminality, coercive power, descent into darkness), and Achilles, and sesquiquadrate Juno. She successfully dealt with Brian Mitchell and Wanda Barzee, who abducted her from her Salt Lake City home at knifepoint in the night and forced her into their bizarre vagabond lifestyle, by apparently submitting to them, and ended up being present with other kidnapped kids when George W. Bush signed into law a bill creating a national AMBER Alert system.
Connie Francis, who dealt with a domineering father as a girl, was viciously raped in her hotel room after a performance in 1974, and then 25 years later found herself coping with a stalker in a way major enough to make the news, has McDavid conjunct Hektor (bullying, bravery), square Sekhmet (appropriate destruction, zeal), sesquiquadrate Pluto and Vesta (sexual problems, dedication), quincunx Cyllarus (sense of self-worth or effectiveness as an individual) and the Midheaven, and opposite Don Quixote (taking on something entrenched).
Morgan Featherstone, an 8-year-old Australian model.
Andrea Dworkin, a writer identifying as a feminist who has dilated at length on her animus toward men and has conflated intercourse with rape (in the past), has McDavid square the Sun, trine Damocles (pushing the envelope), and opposite Odysseus (a long and winding road) and Thersites (to rail against, to say no).
Ila Borders dealt with frequent abuse from fans and sometimes from teammates as a college and minor-league baseball player for being a female player in a overwhelmingly male sport, but considered herself born to play baseball. She has McDavid conjunct Juno (relating), 2002 TC302 (stress, social climate, political context), and 1996 TL66; and sextile Hidalgo (to assert, to promote, to defend, machismo), Dolon (enduring, audacious) and Askalaphus (publicity).
Women's rights icon Susan B. Anthony, who defied numerous customs governing women's behavior and once was prosecuted for voting in an election, had McDavid conjunct 2000 EC98 (seeing the picture all too clearly) and trine Stentor (speaking in a loud voice, loudly proclaimed) and Achilles.
