if you can come up with a logical argument that does not contain a logical fallacy as to why girls cannot be passionate football fans and you can argue it without sending death threats, insults, or anything offending or inappropriate, then by all means, send me an ask, and if it is reasonable and logical then i will accept that as your opinion and my opinion as mine and we shall go our separate ways.
if you can’t then please go away. thanks.
Sexism in football and my experiences.
“You like football? But you’re a girl.” This is something that I hear a lot, and many other female football fans experience. It seems almost like a shock; girls liking football? But isn’t football a men’s sport? Perhaps the shock comes from girls liking any sport at all that isn’t netball or something classified as equally as ‘girly’.
i saw a guy tweeting about how hot mario gomez was. i reckon he was 100% serious about it too. how did people respond? no abuse. in fact other people joined in on it, agreeing with him about how hot mario gomez was.
but when i do that, i get death threats and hate messages telling me to “go back to the kitchen,” and that i’m “not a true football fan” and i should go “like some shitty sport like netball.” yes. that is totally fair. totally no double standard there. nope. not at all.
