Chances are, if you’re a woman and you’ve had much contact with the leadership of FIFA, you have a story to tell about sexism and soccer’s world governing body.

U.S. forward Abby Wambach tells one from the time she and her now-wife, Sarah Huffman, were backstage in a VIP room in January 2013 before the World Player of the Year awards gala in Zurich, Switzerland. “[FIFA president] Sepp Blatter came into our little area, and he walked straight up to Sarah and thought she was [Brazilian star] Marta,” says Wambach.

“Marta!” Blatter said, hugging a bewildered Huffman, who doesn’t look much like Marta. “You are the best! The very best!”

“He had no idea who Marta was, and she’s won the award five times,” says Wambach. “For me, that’s just a slap in the face because it shows he doesn’t really care about the women’s game.”

**********

Former U.S. World Cup winner Julie Foudy tells a story about the time she was part of the globally televised draw for the men’s 1998 World Cup in Marseille, France. Blatter said something about her onstage in French. “I don’t speak French,” says Foudy, “but when I got off the stage two women who worked for FIFA were kind of angry.”

“Why are you angry?” Foudy asked them.

“We don’t like what he just said about you,” said one.

“What did he say?”

“That they brought you here because you looked good—and nothing about your football.”

With Women’s World Cup on horizon, sexism remains part of FIFA culture (via thrace-)

Since everyone is in a kick-the-douchebag-out-of-office mood (*ahem* GTFO Goodell), can we get Sepp the fuck outta FIFA? The guy is a straight-up sexist pig. AND THE WOMEN’S WORLD CUP IS STILL PLANNED TO BE PLAYED ON FUCKING ASTROTURF. JUST WHAT. NO SEPP. NO.

Signal boosttttt

Five years ago, I almost lost a person I love to suicide. There still aren&#8217;t words to describe the terror I felt when I thought she was gone&#8230; but we didn&#8217;t lose her. We spent the next hours, days, weeks, and years showing her how much she was loved and deserved to be loved. This picture is from the earlier times. I might have been a child when I took it but the sentiment behind it still remains. To everyone, you are loved. You deserve to be loved. And no one can play your part.

Wow that was fast. hahahaha

15) Personality description: Loyal. If you’re someone I care about, I will fight for you until the end. “This I Will Defend”

17) Opinion on insecurities: Everyone has them but, everyone is insecure about being the only one to have them. I also think it’s stupid to tell people to just ignore them. Like, you think we haven’t tried?

22) Description of crush: 5’5” Blonde, blue eyes with hazel and green flecks, surfs, knows what she wants, isn’t afraid to call you out on your bullshit, possibly more sarcastic than I am, loves messing up my hair, makes me grin like a fool, and fits perfectly in my arms.

46) What my last text message says: “Sweet dreams, beautiful”

41) Relationship status: Single, obvi. Can’t you tell from my text message?
