"She has chafed her entire career against the single-minded portrayal of the squeaky-clean, heteronormative, girl-next-door image that U.S. Soccer has marketed since 1999. Her reluctance to match her image to that of her team has made her an easy scapegoat."

"This is the culture we live in. Sadly most men have this mentality that they are superior to women - emotionally, physically, etc. Not only do most of them have this “egotistical” mindset they are hypocritical as well. Example number one, here we are claiming that “SOLO must have the SAME punishment as RAY RICE” because it’s a “double standards”. Since when have men wanted to be equal with women? I don’t see them crying out for the wage gap, I don’t see them crying out for equality in exposure in women’s sport. It’s sadly ONLY when their “male” rights get taken away, do they want to try and exploit a female in favor of making things fair, but for fucks sake, when have they wanted anything to be fair?"

At the end of the day, the people who really know me are the people that I have to face — and I can face them with loyalty and with a smile. Distractions aside, my one and only focus is the World Cup"
