Girl Kicked Out Of Soccer Tournament For An INSANE Reason

5 June 2017

An 8-year-old girl (and her entire team) was kicked out of a soccer tournament in Nebraska because according to officials she looked like a boy. Ana Kasparian, Hasan Piker and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“A family from Nebraska is outraged over how their 8-year-old daughter was treated at a soccer tournament.

Tournament officials apparently disqualified Mili Hernandez and her entire team from the finals because organizers thought she was a boy.

Her parents said they proved her gender, but it wasn’t enough.

Mili is an exuberant girl who loves soccer and her short haircut.

“When my hair starts to grow, I put it short because I always had short hair,” she said. “So I didn’t like my hair long.”

Shouldn’t the transphobic soccer bureaucrats, who ruined the joy of an 8-year-old girl and her whole team, be banned from all sports clubs and all sports grounds for life? Maybe these misogynistic morons think that 8-year-old girl soccer players should not just have mandatory long hair, but play in mandatory high heel shoes as well?

United States international women’s soccer player Abby Wambach reacted on Twitter:

Mili, don’t EVER let anyone tell you that you aren’t perfect just as you are. I won championships with short hair.

United States international women’s soccer player Mia Hamm supports Mili as well.

The Atlantic has a fascinating piece looking at the downsides of America’s hyper-competitive youth soccer industry, which is not geared toward kids’ well-being.
