Sexism in football? Whatever next? Next you'll be telling us it's homophobic and racist. I personally don't see why any woman has anything to do with football, but it's like gay marriage, it's the principle of it that we should be allowed 'in'. I didn't understand that for a long time. I still find it odd, though, that any woman wants anything to do with football. It's so hateful.
LOL to some woman sticking up for Andy Grey and Richard Keys and calling 'smash it' banter. You don't 'panic about what you're going to say' Robbie Savage, if you're not the kind of person to say disgusting offensive things in the first place. Nice to hear about women not being allowed into places in the 21st century, isn't it?
Being a female lineswoman shouldn't be 'a hostile place'. Why should women have to put up with being abused from the terraces? Why is everything in football so hostile and horrible? Why is it so nasty? How can anyone enjoy it? It's like a bullfight or something. It's just licensed bullying/ aggression. It's actually grotesque.
Robbie: 'she probably knows more about football than me'. Doesn't he get that even that statement is sexist? I feel so sorry for people who see men and women as alien species who could never begin to understand each other. I barely register which of my friends are male or female. I just like the ones that make me laugh the best.We're not segregated when we go on nights out like it's some 1950s dance.
'Football is the last bastion of men'. What's our last bastion? The kitchen?
My boyfriend just said (uncharacteristically) 'If women work in football what do they expect?' (He hates football) What 'they' should expect is being treated like a human being.
As IF they'll EVER have quotas (ie. positive discrimination) in sport, despite the constant positive discrimination of men by the fact we've lived in a patriarchal society for the past billion years.
Will we ever see a female football manager? Well they couldn't do a worse job than the current lot. Robbie Savage is a sexist prick with a 90s haircut.
I notice women's football barely even got a mention in this show, which is actually quite a huge production but gets zero TV coverage (because we're just women and it's just a mess about, presumably). But I might have missed them mentioning that because I missed half of this show as my boyfriend came in drunk and chatty. Sorry for the lack of bile. Football is sexist. Next up: Earth not flat.
