“It’s hard to believe that, in 2017, we still have to fight so hard for basic equitable support,“ said assistant captain Monique Lamoureux-Morando. "But when I think about the women who paved the way for our team – and when I see girls at rinks around the country who are dedicated to pursuing big dreams and look to us to lead by example – it’s well overdue for us to speak up about unfair treatment, even if it means sacrificing an opportunity to represent our country. We owe the next generation more than that. We owe it to ourselves to stand up for what is right.” - U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Will Not Play in World Championships, ESPNW

Is disgusting how some Harry fans are treating Meghan and just saying she is using the press and what not

Hi! Don’t worry, only the crazy and dumb ones are the ones who are calling Meghan names. I fail to see what she did to be called “attention whore” like dude she did everything she was supossed to: kept her “normal” life, not commenting about her personal life, remained quiet and discreet and kept going to her job so I don’t know what else those haters expected from her.

I guess they can’t stand the idea that Harry is not going to be single anymore so in their minds I suposse Meghan broke their fantasy, I don’t know.
