England V USA. What a match! I don’t like VAR and I don’t like penalties. Why Oh why do England lose matches on a penalty? That said, England had lost the game before that. Now some of you might be asking why am I talking about football. Last night I realised I do not like men’s football. Women’s football, that is much more of a game. But my thought this morning is not based on women’s football, it is this:
One of my favourite film directors Josh Whedon said,
“So, why do you write these strong female characters?Josh Whedon
Because you’re still asking me that question.”
It is time that we recognised that the fairer sex has nothing to with gender and more to do with hair colour and the last time I looked men had blonde hair as well. Equality doesn’t mean we are the same, equality means we treat all with respect and with equal measure. I love holding the door open to people… to all not just women but men, children and aliens when they pop down to visit us.
I don’t want to say women’s football is better than men’s (although it clearly is), saying that I am a cricket fan and both the women’s and men’s game is amazing. What I want to say is that in all walks of life it is time for change but none more so than in sport. I have had to write women’s that and women’s this – next time I write it will be England cricket team played amazingly well last night and you can guess who I am writing about.
Enjoy the day.
