Women

Boycott the Hell Out of the Olympics

I would applaud this:

U.S. women’s soccer team co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn said players could decide in July to boycott August’s Olympics if nothing has changed regarding a wage-discrimination complaint filed against U.S. Soccer two weeks ago.

“It [an Olympic boycott] would still be on the table,” Sauerbrunn said in an ESPNW interview published Sunday. “We are reserving every right to do so. We’re leaving every avenue open. If nothing has changed, we don’t feel real progress has been made, then it’s a conversation we’re going to have.”

Sauerbrunn’s comments were firmer than Alex Morgan‘s response on March 31 to Matt Lauer‘s question if players would boycott matches or strike.

“I think that’s why we’re here taking this action and filing this complaint,” Morgan said then.

The women's game is the only game in town. If you have never watched the US Women's soccer team play, that's your loss. These women represent American soccer throughout the world; three World Cup wins is what counts. The men's team is a joke, and a bad one at that.

Pay these young ladies what they are worth and be grateful that they have dedicated their lives to this sport. 

The Wonder of Ronda Rousey


Ronda Rousey is used to having to answer stupid questions. She's used to be doubted. She's used to the sexist bullshit that gets thrown her way.

In what may be a viral sensation that will be viewed a billion times, here's her answer to the doubters and the haters. You will see a woman who weighs 135 pounds use her skill and ability to drop a clown like a sack of old potatoes.



And what happens at the end? She expresses genuine concern for the clown she just pantsed in public. This is the age of Rousey, and you're just living in it.
