This was yesterday. And I’m still mad about it.
I wanted to watch the World Cup with my father and 13-year-old brother on TV. I didn’t know much about soccer, but I liked watching soccer matches all the same — they could keep me entertained for hours.
“Because you are a girl,” my father said. He was serious. He wasn’t joking at all.
“Yeah. Girls can’t watch soccer,” my brother added.
Listen up. Yes, I am a fucking girl and I can watch all the fucking World Cups I want and I will behead anyone who dares to stop me from doing so.
