The USWNT just scored 13 goals in their World Cup opening game against Thailand--that's more than the men's team scored in the last three World Cups combined. Why are they still fighting for equal pay?


Forget galactic; this is a supercluster-size take.

Without context, I read that as "holy shit you people they should be getting paid more than the men's team already, what is wrong with you?" - but I don't know if the context turns that into a shithead being all "clearly they're already being paid enough."

I liked the comment that "Forget equal pay. Since they're doing ten times better than the US men's team, they should be fighting for SUPERIOR pay."

Wait, let's go back for a moment Mongrel, why is the US women's soccer team thing a hot take? They should be getting paid way more than the men's' soccer team for sure. Is beatbandito actually right? I just want some clarification here.

Context is everything; it's unclear whether that question was "Why should they still have to fight for equal pay?" or "Why are they acting unsatisfied with what they have?"

I don't think Mongrel was mocking the idea of superior players earning superior pay with his second post, so I'm going to guess his original reaction was to a "Why are you ladies so angry?" shitpost. Or maybe he just thought he was. Context is everything.

Yeah, that was my interpretation, since it being a "Why are you ladies so angry?" shipost was the the context in which it was originally shared. I only noticed the other (positive) way you could interpret when that was pointed out later on.

So now I'm not actually sure which way the original post was meant to go. Though I'm still leaning slightly towards shitposting, because "Why should they have to fight for equal pay?" is still a pretty weird non-sequitur in context.

The story of that lopsided match wasn't about the strength of the US women's team, but the weakness of other nations' teams. The US women's team is so dominant mainly because they're vastly better funded and supported than the equivalent in just about any other nation, by an order of magnitude or more. That's still far less than the US men's team obviously and that's valid to point out, but the US women's team weren't beating the crap out of the US men's team (which they very potentially could do), they were steamrollering a hapless third party. So even in the positive case I'm like

Possibly but it's more about the confusion from the painful vaccines themselves which shocks the mind and reinforces old wounds from past lives (e.g. stabbed to death in war times, etc.) This also can cause #autism.
The photo is unnecessary for your point. Clothes aren't gender.

So obviously those comments would be flipped on their heads if the genders were reversed, but why is everyone so focused on 'zomg opening mail is a federal crime'? I assume that doesn't actually get prosecuted when two people have the same address.
