It is time for men to learn from women how to play football.
1/ #ItsComingHome #EURO2020 #CopaAmerica
In 2015, I went to the quarter final and the semi final of the women's World Cup in Montreal and saw the US beat France in the former and beat Germany in the latter.

If queer is the opposite of heteronormativity, it was the queerest--and joyously so--sporting environment.
The stands were full of outsiders: women with babies, teenage girls-- a demographic I rarely see in televised men’s games--with their faces painted in the colors of their teams and men there alone. #ItsComingHome #Euros2021 #CopaAmerica2021 📷 @rerutled Mona with red hair and a pa...

Are you watching the epic football finals this weekend? Before today's #CopaAmericaFINAL and Sunday's #Euro2020Final, read my essay on domestic abuse and the men's game. tl:dr it's not the football, it's the patriarchy. #ENG #ITA #Brazil #Argentina
Patriarchy enables and protects the toxic masculinity that makes big tournaments and match days hell for too women and children.… #CopaAmerica #EURO2020
During the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cup, incidents of domestic abuse vs women rose by 38% when #England team lost and increased by 26% where England won or drew, compared with days when there was no England match.
Hence campaign 👇🏽 "If #ENG gets beaten, so will she." #EURO2020

For football lovers like me, this weekend is epic! The men's #CopaAmerica final between #Brazil and #Argentina on Saturday and the men's #EURO2020 final between #England and #Italy on Sunday. We know that domestic abuse is associated with men's tournaments. Let's take a look.
First: On/off the pitch, from managers to players to men who support them: patriarchy fuels a dangerous cocktail of toxic masculinity in football & many other men’s sports. Football tournaments didn't invent patriarchy. The latter drives the men’s game & the harm it takes home.
#Brazil: So egregious is the enabling and protection of football superstars in Brazil, “The Brazilian Football Association could likely field an entire team of active players accused or convicted of crimes related to gender violence or sexual assault.”…

I remember lists of queer players during the Women's World Cup. Where are the lists of openly gay and bisexual men's footballers in this weekend's #EURO2020 final and #CopaAmerica finals?
How when we know that at least 10 percent of any population belongs to the LGBTQ+ community, is there not a single out player in the men’s top leagues while the women’s game has a long history of openly gay players?

Patriarchy. That’s how.…

"If #ENG  gets beaten, so will she."
When #England played in 2002, 2006 & 2010 World Cup, incidents of domestic abuse rose by 38% when the team lost and rose by 26% when they won or drew, compared with days when there was no England match. Remember that ahead of #EURO2020  final
Moreover, researchers from UK’s Lancaster University found that incidents of domestic abuse were 11% higher the day after an #England match.… ##Eng #Euro2020Final #CopaAmericaFINAL

El Observador culpa a los jugadores, no al entrenador.
Es increíble pensar que los medios uruguayos solían ser increíblemente duros con todos los directivos de la Celeste. Ahora, es un chiste cómo le permiten salirse con la suya.…
Además, ¡piensa que la ausencia de De La Cruz fue la principal razón de la derrota! Por favor. 🤡🤡🤡

Si Tabarez tuviera huevos, habría dejado en el banquillo a Suárez y habría construido el equipo en torno a Valverde. No hizo ninguna de las dos cosas.
Todo el 'análisis' ve síntomas. Ignora la causa.

La razón por la que los jugadores jóvenes "no están a la altura" es el entrenador. Todos los equipos de fútbol son una extensión de la personalidad del tecnico.

Ας γράψουμε λίγα λόγια και για το Copa América 2021,που ξεκινάει ΟΡΙΣΤΙΚΑ σήμερα, στη Βραζιλία.

Αφού δόθηκε στις συνδιοργανώτριες Αργεντινή-Κολομβία για το 2020 (κι ένα χρόνο μετά το 2019 - μιας και πάρθηκε η απόφαση να διεξάγεται παράλληλα με τα EURO)
η Conmebol απέσυρε αρχικά από την Κολομβία (λόγω των διαδηλώσεων και της βίαιης καταστολής) στη συνέχεια απέσυραν από την Αργεντινή (που μάλιστα τις τελευταίες ημέρες επέβαλε σκληρό λοκ ντάουν - εξάλλου βρίσκονται στις απαρχές του Χειμώνα) και ο
Μπαλσονάρο θέλησε να πάρει τη διοργάνωση - που φέτος ΔΕΝ θα έχει "φιλοξενούμενες ομάδες" όπως συμβαίνει τα τελευταία χρόνια, από άλλες ηπείρους - παρότι υπάρχουν 465 χιλιάδες νεκροί, με τα κρεβάτια ΜΕΘ στα νοσοκομεία έχουν πληρότητα άνω του 80% και οι επιστήμονες
