U.S. Women’s Soccer Team and U.S. Soccer Ratify New Labor Agreement
The deal, which runs through 2021, guarantees the players improved pay and bonuses, but not the equal pay with the men’s team they had sought.
By Andrew Das

The United States women’s soccer team pressed its fight for equal pay not in one dramatic moment at the negotiating table, but in a thousand small ones away from it. In text messages and phone calls, in hotel rooms and on bus rides, and at home in far-flung cities, the players fine-tuned their needs and their arguments and their solidarity.

Sometimes the suggestions arrived in an overnight email from forward Alex Morgan in France, or a late-night one from midfielder Megan Rapinoe on the West Coast. They sent out anonymous surveys to their teammates, to better gauge what people prioritized but might not want to say aloud, and weighed in on legal language and PowerPoint slides in a cache of shared Google Docs.

As the talks intensified in recent weeks, players like Becky Sauerbrunn and Meghan Klingenberg conferred with teammates like Kelley O’Hara and Christen Press to propose changes as small as a single word in page after page of proposed contract language. Then they would rehearse what they would say at each negotiating session, and even decide who would say it.

During the 1960s, octopus wrestling was a popular sport in the West Coast of the United States. It involved a diver grappling with an octopus in shallow waters before dragging it to the shore. In fact, there was even an annual World Octopus Wrestling Championship which would be held in Washington. When the so-called sportsmen were done with the octopuses, they would then either eat them, give them to an aquarium, or return them to the sea.

Ever since I was little I loved talking about myself, and I can talk about myself for hours and what I like and what I dislike and my views and standings on certain issues. I have a really open mind and I try to be a positive force in as many people’s lives as possible. Even though I like talking about myself, I’ve been told I can be a good listener, and I’m usually quiet in class unless I have something meaningful to say.
I really like sports, so like football, basketball, and baseball, and my favorite sport is baseball. I play some computer games when I can, but I also enjoy reading books and time to myself. I like most types of music besides any of this new age rap junk. I listen to classic rock, chill beats, jazz, classical, rap, power ballads, and I’m open to new types of course. I’m a vegetarian, but I don’t detest or look down at people that eat meat (as some would guess).
I’m a bi-romantic asexual, basically meaning that sex is on the lowest priority for me as far as relationships go. Quality time is my main love language so I would take a good hang out over a quick sex session. I lean towards non-binary people, not as like “Oh man they’re soooo hot, I just can’t get enough” but more as like “Wow that’s so cool that they have the courage and the confidence to be who they wanna be, and they look good as their true self” I pretty much hate my gender tbh, like why are most of the guys I see on the internet horny, sweaty, hairy, unemployed men? It just sucks that most people have to take extra precautions when interacting with people on the internet because of men like that. Just speaking from experience.
As a male, it’s harder for me to express my interests in things like writing, flowers, floral fabrics and designs, animals, feelings, and art with other males ore even people in my friend group. Consequently my best friends are girls, which is perfectly fine with me. I think having a pen pal is a great way to form a really cool friendship with someone in a way that is more interactive and meaningful than just texting a random person on the platonic page of craigslist.
If you haven’t already noticed by now, I enjoy writing in all forms. And when they said I could type as much as I wanted, I took them seriously. Thanks for reading all of this if you did. I really appreciate it.

Preferences: Someone around my age so 17-19 of any gender
