I’m a poc. and usually I tend to fall for white girls more often. my hetero friend is also a poc and is the same but with white guys. like she herself is black but says she would never date a black man simply bc they are black. but wow she gives me so much shit for liking white girls bc she hates white ppl so much like its annoying bc all the guys she’s ever liked are douches and racist and/or homophobic af. but since she thinks they’re hot its ok and gives them a free pass to shit on her or anyone else and it pisses me off tbh. especially when i say i like some girl and shes just like “ew shes white, like shes so basic and simple. like all white people are so ugly”. sorry that was a rant
Chances are, if you’re a woman and you’ve had much contact with the leadership of FIFA, you have a story to tell about sexism and soccer’s world governing body.
U.S. forward Abby Wambach tells one from the time she and her now-wife, Sarah Huffman, were backstage in a VIP room in January 2013 before the World Player of the Year awards gala in Zurich, Switzerland. “[FIFA president] Sepp Blatter came into our little area, and he walked straight up to Sarah and thought she was [Brazilian star] Marta,” says Wambach.
“Marta!” Blatter said, hugging a bewildered Huffman, who doesn’t look much like Marta. “You are the best! The very best!”
“He had no idea who Marta was, and she’s won the award five times,” says Wambach. “For me, that’s just a slap in the face because it shows he doesn’t really care about the women’s game.”
Former U.S. World Cup winner Julie Foudy tells a story about the time she was part of the globally televised draw for the men’s 1998 World Cup in Marseille, France. Blatter said something about her onstage in French. “I don’t speak French,” says Foudy, “but when I got off the stage two women who worked for FIFA were kind of angry.”
“Why are you angry?” Foudy asked them.
“We don’t like what he just said about you,” said one.
“What did he say?”
“That they brought you here because you looked good—and nothing about your football.”
Hope, arguing with the ref.
BITCH, IF I WALKED THE LINE ANYMORE I’D BE FUCKING JOHNNY CASH. I KNOW HOW TO DO MY JOB, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO DO YOURS?
This sums up the 2014 Algarve Cup experience pretty well… and it was taken at the first game.
