From now on it’s just called “Soccer” and “Men’s Soccer,” right?

Thanks to all the men who have instructed me to use the correct term “football.” I’m so glad you’ve grasped the point. I don’t know what I’d do without your big brains!

The Men's version is the one with diving, right?

We had all the games on at the office, and I can’t even count how many grunty, union set workers made some comment about how the only soccer they’ll watch is the women because they actually play through contact and spend most of the game upright.

Honestly, it's the only substantive difference between the men's and women's game.

That, plus the women’s team having some semblance of identity, understanding of possession/tactics, and consistent leadership in the head coaching position. The men sure do put a zip on that ball, though. Congrats, guys.

They probably would if they went into every match knowing they were capable of doing to teams what the women’s team can.

Used to annoy me when my daughters were playing soccer/basketball/track/tennis. Always “Lady” in front of the team name. They never put “Man” in front of the boys team name. Did they think we couldn’t tell the difference? 🤨

Drove me crazy too as a teenage athlete. If I was going to be a Lady [Lightning, in the case of my alma mater], I insisted the boys' be called Gentlemen Lightning.

I went to a community college where the team name was the "Clippers," as in the type of ship. The women's teams? The "Lady Clippers."

That’s nothing. I graduated from University of Delaware. We are the Fightin’ Blue Hens. Our men’s teams (one of which I competed on) were called the Hens. The ladies were called the Lady Hens. Think on that.

I went to a high school where we were the Colts. Our womens teams? Lady Colts. My cousin once got in trouble because her coach had them write an essay on "what it means to be a lady colt" and she essentially said "um... an oxymoron?"

Gender has nothing to do with using the correct name for FOOTBALL. Playing unnecessary Cards is always the first sign you're out of your depth 👍

The key point of communicating with language is to convey meaning. Do you... do you not know what the word “soccer” means? I can explain if you need! It seems to really be throwing you for a loop here, I just want to help!

The key point in language comprehension is to discern meaning. The post is about equal pay for women's sport - in this case, referring to the game called "Soccer" in the US & Cda, but commonly called "Football" everywhere else in the world. I hope this helps.
