It’s true that nothing is sacred, as much as it is true that things will never be equal andf there will always be discrimination in the world, no matter how hard people try to change things or what they may claim. My friend Kellerlemming sees just this every single day she is in her school – despite the fact that this school has sworn to combat discrimination in all its forms – and it is just as evident in the local newspapers.
Football is back in the press. Not just any football, but real, world class football. The German national team has been presented to the nation, and everyone has blown the dust off their colors, their flags and their patriotic feelings to back them in their latest fight for the top spot. And that is presumably why the press has been careful to publish details of their sexual preferences for all to read and wonder over. A full page article packed with new photographs and interviews detailing exactly who is Gay in the team, who is bisexual and who is ‘normal’.
Is this really a part of the sport? Does being Gay make a person better or worse at what they do? And, even more, since this is only about the Women’s National Team, would the press write such articles about the male team too?
Love & Kisses, Viki.
