Charlotte, France, in love with soccer.

The women’s game is treated by FIFA as charity work that serves to justify its monopoly over the “real” sport. Note the opening page of “The Laws of the Game,” which categorizes women as disabled players for whom the rules might be adjusted. If FIFA and the Canadian Football Association wanted to move the goal posts, make the field smaller, the match shorter, if they wanted to make women play with smaller balls, they could. They could do none of these things for men, unless those men were not men but children. Or over 35. Or disabled.

I didn’t think it was real so i checked a copy of “The Laws of the Game” online and it is absolutely true.

Kelley saw Pinoe catch the ball with her leg (as in the first gif) and was so impressed that she was dying to do it herself! After about 12 attempts, and lessons from Pinoe, she finally managed to catch it (which you can see here) and Pinoe pretty much celebrated for her like she just scored a goal in the Olympics.
