a concept: you have two professional sports leagues.

the first one is a women’s league, and it has a safe environment. they have shown continuous support to LGBT+ people, and even have many openly LGBT+ players, including the first transgender athlete to play in a professional American league. the league is also open to players of all color and ethnicity, and there’s pretty much no racial discrimination in the organizations. they face lots of struggles that could potentially be the end of the league, but they keep fighting.

the second league is a men’s league, much bigger than the first one. it’s the only one of its kind to never have an openly gay/etc. player because of the toxic environment and homophobia in the league. the league made an initiative on showing support to its LGBT+ fans, but many teams in the league failed to follow that initative the way they were expected to. the league also employs many players who have been accused of crimes such as sexual assault, and continues to overlook the horrible things they have done only because these players are good and keep up the league’s revenues. as a whole, a big chunk of the money that goes into the players’ huge paychecks could be used to support other smaller leagues of the same sport (see: first league mentioned) to grow their markets.

do you think these leagues deserve equal support? no, you probably don’t. endorsing a league that shows little to no support to its female, LGBT+ etc. fans probably doesn’t sound too attractive. then why does the second league, the men’s league, receive so so much more media coverage, money from sponsors and support from fans than the first league, the women’s league does?

so, ahem. after this don’t come to me saying sexism isn’t an issue within the major men’s hockey leagues and the fanbase or that the NHL and professional women’s hockey leagues deserve equal support. that’s all.

Rules: Answer the twenty questions and tag some people.

Name: Weronika

Nickname: Weronsza, Neni(only by family), many ways of misreading “Weronsza” in polish it sounds like Veronsha? with umm… flat accent? idk I tried to force google translate to say it right and it would be “veronshao” on english setting. “o” is like half silent, for the sake of more polish “a” pronunciation (Accent is in the middle, not at the end) In polish setting it read it more like WeronszA! Really, “A” is too damn loud. English one worked better.

Chiburekki (Crimean Tatar: çiberek meaning “raw börek”) is a deep-fried turnover with a filling of ground or minced meat and onions. A national dish of the Crimean Tatars, it is also popular as snack and street food throughout Transcaucasia, Central Asia, Russia, as well as with the Crimean Tatar diasporas in Turkey and Romania. In Turkey, it’s popular in places where a Tatar community exists, such as Eskişehir and Konya. Töbörek is another Tatar variety, that is basically a çibörek that is baked in amasonry oven instead of being fried in oil.
