Now I understand why some people are shocked by this, it’s not nice to hear a grown man shout “You B*tch” at a female official, not least a fairly attractive one (deliberately sexist comment made in jest). However lets face it, regardless of your gender you will get a sworn at repeatedly by today’s footballers, and should that be any different if you are woman? In many ways the official should feel honoured that the player has seen past the fact that she is a lady and has still ranted in her direction.
Luckily she didn’t get the C word thrown at her, which is regularly dished out in her direction. The more than female officials are used the more this will become commonplace and then no one will bat an eyelid as they are simply being treated, rightly or wrongly, in the same horrific way their male counterparts are on a weekly basis.
For the record this took place in the Australian A-League of all places.
