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.

      Second Sex, Artificial Turf

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

Sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

According to the timeline, the petition started over a year ago and i’m beyond saddened that we haven’t hit 5000 signatures yet.

I want to highlight

Artificial turf has been blamed for increased injuries on sporting fields, including more sprained ankles, concussions, turf burns, and an injury known as "turf toe." Overheating is also a health concern for athletes since temperatures can be hotter on artificial surfaces than on natural grass. Finally, turf is widely known to alter the speed and quality of play on the field.

Here’s a depiction of what happens

On top of the health hazards, it alters the game. Players would be more wary about slides and tackles. You won’t see any dolphin RVP headers here. No slidey celebrations.

Again, please sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

Well, this feeling that you’re having right now that ‘I’m supposed to be all things’ is a feeling women have every day and have their whole lives, so you’re just starting to experience it now. Like, how can I be cool and tough and also sweet, and y’know [women] have to deal with all those juxtapositions every day, but I’m glad you’re finally experiencing it as a white male.

Because of how he trained her Regina had to always hold on to that anger.

Her ass got excited and happy for two seconds for doing something right then nope it went away because happiness and joy is not the way she was taught to tap into her power.

But with the annoyance she makes it flair up again. She had to constantly stay in touch with the worse of herself in order to be protected..because without magic she was just Regina with a dead fiancee, an abusive mom , a scared ass dad, a perv old ass husband , and a kid sister /step daughter. No allies, no power, magically trapped in a kingdom..
