Men Are Saying It’s Not Sexist To Pay Male Soccer Players More, But Uh, Hold Our Hoops While We Beg To Differ With Big Facts

Yesterday, the U.S. women’s soccer team played an incredible match against Thailand, in which they won 13 to 0. That game was a great way to kick off FIFA Women’s World Cup. Yet as more viewers tune in to this year’s championship, there’s one reoccurring view: men’s soccer is still better than the women’s league; therefore, they deserve a lot more money than the women.

Male leagues indeed get paid millions more than the women, and even though we’re fighting for equal pay at least one man (of course) said that men soccer players are deserving of it.

A male writer wrote an op-ed saying that it’s not sexist to pay more to male soccer players because they bring in a larger audience, which equals to a more significant revenue overall to FIFA Men’s World Cup.

“This isn’t evidence of deeply-ingrained sexism,” he writes. “It’s a reflection of the relative commercial status of men’s and women’s soccer, and each one’s ability to draw a consistent audience. This is the core factor driving merit-based compensation in the entertainment industry. When judged on their merits, the Women’s World Cup teams don’t deserve to be paid as much as their male counterparts.”

He should know that this year more and more people are tuning in to watch women’s soccer because they play better than the U.S. male league.

The writer admits that the U.S. women’s team wins more games than the U.S. men’s team but he points out that in 2017 the women played against teen boys and lost 5 to 2. “Yes, that’s right: Teenage boys beat the women’s top players in the world, and the result wasn’t even close,” he writes and adds. “It does illustrate that even the best women’s soccer in the world doesn’t feature the same level of speed, size, strength, and skill as men’s soccer at lower levels. That isn’t sexism, it’s nature.”

So to recap, this man thinks because men are better at soccer than women (even though they don’t win as much), they still deserve more money because (drum roll), they are generally superior.

Well, he should know, times are changing, and people demand that women soccer players deserve equal pay.

People demanding that equal pay within women’s soccer should be addressed now.

On top of practicing and playing, the women are also fighting for equal pay.

As if they weren’t doing enough already.

They work harder, how many times do we have to say it?

They do not cry over little things on the field like their male counterparts.

It all comes down to gender.

That makes all of this so unfair.

Men take note: change is happening now!

Now back to the game!

Besides her fire music, excellent commentary on politics, and hilariously honest iterations of her relationships, Cardi B, is a Latina who has also built her platform on style. The trap rapper has become notorious for serving up some of the boldest and flawless looks in entertainment. Particularly when it comes to her makeup.

Whether she’s just playing around on Instagram or appearing at the Met Gala, fans of Cardi can always depend on her to cut a lewk.

Turns out Cardi B might be working on a project that could have you rocking her bold style “very” soon.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight about her 2019 Fashion Nova collection, which is her third collaboration with the company, the rapper spoke about her other business ventures, including her beauty line. When asked whether Cardi saw herself doing another beauty line soon she responded saying “very.”

When asked by the reporter to give us a little more information about the line she replied it was “Something that I want to do,” Cardi responded.

Based on Cardi B’s previous makeup venture, we can promise we’ll be standing at our comps ready to hit the click button.

Fans of Cardi B will likely remember that her limited-edition collaboration with Tom Ford quickly sold out.

Of course, now everyone has theories about who Cardi B’s next collab could be with.

Fans in Cardi B’s comments section have speculated that she could be working on something with Pat McGrath, who Cardi B has worn to the past two Met Galas. The Black British makeup artist provided Cardi with her mean pout and bold bronzed look.

There’s also speculation that her collaboration could make for a Fashion Nova first.

After all, the style maven has notoriously had a big place in her heart for the brand. No doubt, a Fashion Nova x Cardi B fashion line would give the rapper more clout, and ensure the further building of her fashion empire.
