    And the ball said to ElleEffSeee said "Go on, son, put me away, tuck me into the bottom right corner". And so he did.

    The entire game's sexist, this is more than likley sky sports wanting younger presenters/pundits, why else wouldn't they let them make the apology public?

    But could somebody please explain why women can't play premier league football or even blue square league football without the answer being sexist?

    its an interesting observation, will there be a time when we shall see lady referees, perhaps they shall command more respect than their male counterparts, for which man is likely to cajole and harass a lady? I think the Americans have got it right, men play the game and ladies look awesome with short skirts and pom poms, is that sexiest, i dunno, but it works for me.

    Is having separate toilets sexist?

    Sexism is about believing one sex is inherently inferior to the other. Having separate tournaments doesn't imply that. There is nothing in-built in the rules or organization that makes it intrinsically sexist.

    We, whoever we maybe, need the best capable people running the line. Whether they have a pair of boobs or a pair of testicles, or even both is irrelevant.

    Why are women not permitted to play professional football along side men, Fifa don't allow it (1). In the English premier league the average wage is £1.1 million per season, (2) i can't find a source on how much the Women's league pays but i doubt it's even 10% of the men's, thing is there are women out there that are just as good at football as men and should be allowed to play top flight football, seems to me like a restricted job opportunity which is in fact sexism.
