10 Rules for (interacting with) Women during the World Cup
1) Throw out the litmus test. Don't make me "prove my worth" as a fan by explaining to you how the offside rule works, or giving you a rundown on the history of Aston Villa. When you find out that the new guy at work is a Liverpool fan, do you really make him recite the offside rule before sitting down and discussing the merits of Luis Suárez?
2) Cameramen: your job is not to scan the crowd for large-breasted women jumping up and down. Everyone else: you do not need to hoot, holler, point at the TV or post screenshots of female football fans you find attractive. To focus on women as though they are unique in a mass of supporters only reinforces the notion that this sport belongs to one gender.
3) Don't ask me where my boyfriend is. Like you, I'm here to watch the game. I'm not here trying to impress someone, or because some columnist recycled an out-of-date list of good places to meet men.
4) Along the same lines, when I applaud a good shot or a pinpoint pass, please don't ask whether I fancy the player. Let's be honest, these are men in prime physical condition -- you probably fancy them too. But if all we were after was a glimpse of Cristiano Ronaldo's abs, we could sit at home searching Google. Asking a woman whether she finds a player attractive is just another way of belittling the apparently preposterous idea that she could have a genuine interest in the game.
5) And if I refuse to be drawn into your ridiculous questions regarding the fancibility of men on the pitch, don't assume I'm a lesbian. In fact, don't assume I'm a lesbian, period. Sexuality has nothing to do with an individual's ability to watch or analyze a soccer match.
6) Never ask me to give up my prime-viewing seat so your friend, who "actually wants to watch the game," can sit facing the TV. Wrap your head around the fact that women compose an ever-growing segment of the football-watching population, and aren't just turning up at the pub to have a girly chat while the men watch the match.
7) Put aside words like "girly," "pussy" and "bitch." Mocking a player by likening him to half the world's population isn't funny. Neither is using "feminine" as a synonym for "weak."
8) Don't tell me I know a lot about football "for a girl." There's no need for qualifiers. I either know the game, or I don't.
9) No, I'm not going to take my top off. And no, I don't find the fact that you asked charming or adorable. Women want to watch football. They don't want to become a sideshow object to be admired when there's a temporary break in play (also see Rule #2).
10) Finally, stop telling me to learn to take a joke when you've done any or all of the above. It's not a joke when I'm the object of unwanted attention, of condescending remarks, of unwarranted assumptions. The World Cup is a high a soccer fan reaches only once every four years. When women aren't able to enjoy the tournament due to routine acts of discrimination, it's no laughing matter.
