    I share a birthday with John Lennon and Bo Obama.

      And sexual discrimination is rampant in World Cup team selection too ...

    •  Should men have say in women's (0+ / 0-)

      I'm no fan of FIFA, but we're talking here about a men's sporting event. Why should women have a say?

    •  Well since it is a men's sporting event? (0+ / 0-)

      It kind of stands to reason that a lot of the folks involved in planning it are former male players.  Certainly i see Lula so the photo includes lula, the president, whose spot has been taken by Dilma Roussef. Also there is Romario, a former forward for Brazil.   I'd guess there are a lot of women for the women's World Cup organizing committee

      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
