Apparently in the US... only feminists give a shit about Soccer?!

Recommended Posts

isn't it time the girls got equal pay?

according to these 20 - 30 people it is...

i wonder how much they paid to get those seats?

lets forget about the more popular  football, baseball, basketball &  hockey...

lets ignore attendance and revenues:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Record_attendances_in_United_States_club_soccer#Women's_soccer

^those would be records from 2001 - present BTW.

lets not let economic factors determine the time frame, who needs the details of reality in this post-modern world anyway...   ???

it is time to force this issue!  resentments & negative sentiment be damned!  why should feminists have to show up in the 10's and 100's of thousands on a regular basis in order for wages to rise?!!!

GIBS!

I agree, there should be equal pay... so let's pay the women less. By fraction of the revenue generated by matches, women are vastly overpaid compared to men. Something like 20% of revenue generated goes to female players, while only 7% of revenue generated goes to male players. In their desperate bid to "equalise" pay, they've ignored entirely that women don't draw the same sort of attention, and so don't draw the same amount of money.

I watched this at 6:30 am. Put on my headset and turned it up to 11. Walked out the door for work and said "Fuck Ya!" This world's got nothing if you can't go apeshit at a football game. Might be just the reason I need to take a vacation and head across the pond for a month or so. American sports seem a rather boring affair in comparison. The tribalism is magnitudes beyond insanity.

It all depends on your sport, but part of the issue is that the US is just so freaking huge compared to something like the UK.  I mean, there are counties in Texas bigger than your entire country! (Ok, maybe not really, but you get the point)

Ah, a long known truth of life... feminism, with its varied guises of other 'liberal' -isms,  is but a social platform for histrionic tantrums, micro-aggressions, and macro-resentments, tailor made for, and by, borderline personalities on antisocial rampage because they weren't luvved enuf in their formative years or whatever. As ideology, it's entirely vacuous and as empty as their own suits, premised on tearing down others instead of building anything up - existing solely to give meaning and expression to their destructive urges. It's nothing else than a set of manipulative strategies of self-validation, re-coloring these pathologies as socially virtuous. Its doctrinal posturing of enlightened clarity attracts the weak and insecure eager to up their social rep, whereby its genius as a pyramid scheme: it is driven not by altruism, but by angst and fear, perpetuated by fragile egos too terrified of others' opinions of themselves. Expecting logic or reason out of this pyramid scheme is like expecting Cordovan to fart diamonds. Its whole attraction lies in being a refuge asylum against logic and reason, whose adherents can mask their intellectual deficiencies in critical thinking by lining up to get their pats on the head and virtue stickers for their profiles, clutching feel-good vibes like alcoholic clutches a bottle to distract themselves from their depression. It's why they get offended by everything that contradicts or disagrees: it reminds their pathological safety bubble may burst any moment, and fear of their negative thoughts getting in triggers that frantic shrill defensiveness. Just another symptom of same toxic mental disease. As is immunity to facts. So much easier to avoid when adjusting expectations accordingly.

can you imagine if...  instead of US soccer, which is very small, relative to other sports that within the US are vastly more popular...   imagine if women's basketball demanded equal pay?

the disparity between US men and US women in soccer is no were near as large as it is in basketball.  professional level male basketball make millions more than women.

there is a reason why soccer is the initial target.  the backlash is much smaller than if they had started with basketball.  they picked the target for a purpose & are aiming for a president, before attacking bigger fish.  Soccer in the US is small potatoes compared to other sports.  but, the game "CARD" being played is all to familiar.  this attack will continue and more water carriers will come forward until it seems an onslaught.  they are aiming for capitulation.  we shall see if it happens.

but it is interesting how a sport where non biological females can compete:

 

regardless of genre, no one seems to be asking for a base salary.  which i of course find interesting.  but when something recreational turns pro & exists entirely around events, marketing and promotion, to garner viewer coin...   base salaries, really aren't that relevant.  and considering how small they would be comparatively to names who can draw big tickets...  it is no surprise "base salary" is not an operative phrasing.

 

i wonder why these men never bitch about getting paid less than their fe-person counterparts?

or why there aren't more:

i guess we will never know...🤔

Football ("soccer") is the biggest sport in the world, though. Whether it's popular in the US or not doesn't really matter, especially when the biggest drives for this unbalanced pay have been outside the US too.

soccer/football is indeed huge globally.

i was aware of the Australian push...  i guess on the EU side of the pond in this particular instance, the news hasn't passed to this side. 

perhaps the individual nations on the EU side needs to play U15 boys?

Matildas-lose-7-0

Dallas under-15 boys squad beat the U.S. Women's National Team

regardless, hadn't seen the issue pushed beyond the 2 nations in the above linked examples.

Yeah... there's been enough stuff that I've seen through Joe Rogan that the trans MMA athlete stuff is basically "that's a man, still a man after they've been injected with drugs, and shouldn't be fighting women" from his point of view.  Amusing that he sees it so clearly yet somehow growing boobs makes you a woman...

Amusing how much that ideology is basically a religion....

well, I agree with them, we should stop with the artificial seperation based on a binary system like gender. Just one competition, no matter if you are male/female/neutral/anything else and the best players will earn the most. Equality, just like feminists want

well, if it happened to women's soccer, they might actually start beating the U15 boys teams.
