Nigerian Football Federation Kicks Women Off Team For Being Lesbian

I don't know if you guys have heard, but it seems the Nigerian Football Federation have been conducting a witch-hunt to find lesbians in the national team and ban them from playing in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup which kicks off tomorrow June 26 in Germany. The team's coach recently bragged to the New York Times that she has dealt with 'the big problem' of lesbianism in her team.

This is so uncool and FIFA needs to do something about it. What has their sexual preference got to do with their game? And how in the world did they expect not to find lesbians in a sports like football? It's like expecting to find only straight men in ballet.
Wow, nice line Linda, you can be smart sometimes you know. Sometimes? Beach pls!...lol

You! Yes you! I know what you are thinking...NO, I'm not a lesbian...lol. I'm speaking against it because discrimination of any kind is wrong!

    We say judge not and we would not be judged in the same measure. As far as I am concerned these government people are sanctimonious bastards. How does this edge corruption out of our country and decrease the frequency of my selection for a random search when I am in and out of certain countries. They go around sleeping with people they are not married to and think they have the right to condemn anyone in public based on their sexuality? The coach is even a bigger fool and should be sacked!!!! This has nothing to do with the game of football. Football is not church!!

    THIS IS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS!!! so because someone is gay you want to throw them off of the team? i guess most of these ladies have to start pretending to be straight, or they might lose their jobs. i mean, look at them, of course many are GAY! this one no be rocket science. they should just leave them. gay or not, if they're really good, they should be allowed to play. I'm sure this will set off a chain reaction on the demise of the Nigerian female soccer team.
    the women that were kicked off should not take this lightly.

    THIS IS TOTAL BULLSHIT, LESBIANISM GOT NOTING TO DO WITH SOCCER. NIGERIA FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. THAT COACH BOASTING MIGHT JUST END UP LOOSING HER JOB WHEN THE POWERFUL LESBIANISM TARGETS HER. SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO PEOPLE SEXUAL CHARACTERS. LET THAT COACH ROT.

    It's 2011. Why are we so backward? And HYPOCRITICAL? Football is football. One's sexual or religious preference has no business in the game. Let the girls play and bring home a World cup.In a country that makes Sodom and Gomorrah pale in comparison, sapphic love is the least of our worries. Judge not, lest you be judged.

    Even thou am not a gay/lesbian alliance supporter, this move is totally stupid. i dont see the government or any other body kicking pple because of murder, bribery and corruption, adultery, incest and all other evils. and pls what standard was used in determining whether this women were lesbians or not. the coach is using this to cover up for her bad coaching techniques. pls that team shld be handed over to a man mtscheww

    That coach is obviously on cheap crack, who made her Judge and jury? She is a football coach not a sex psychologist besides if she is that bothered about how they get their freak on she should get them vibrators(made in d image of a man dick) Holy nweje, we Nigerians are fond of chasing shadows. Go win us some trophies madam.

    Why should we encourage lesbianism in any way at all. No matter what you guys think, lesbianism is evil, and totally un-African. I'm surprised that some people are actually accommodating this vice. the nffn is on point... Kadiri

    i do not support lesbianism or all that stuff but a greater evil is to deny their rights solely based on their sexual preference...if it is not affecting team performance, then their rights have been impeded upon and they can be sued in a sensible court. *QUEEN's COLLEGE graduates the highest population of lesbians from any school in Nigeria, but you should not say because the child is a lesbian means they should not get an education* #justSaying , so the football guys got this wrong, the yshould allow them to serve their country...its only if they are breaking any ethics rule by actually partaking in the act during work hours that they can be suspended but apart from that, this is violation of rights.

    Linda some of your remarks are derogatory...you don't just write every thought that comes to your head!
    "And how in the world did they expect not to find lesbians in a sports like football?"...what the hell is that supposed to mean?
    I'm really disappointed because I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog thus far.

    Anon June 25, 2011 6:15 PM; beach is used in place of bitch to avoid the vulgarity!

    Kinaan; do you have the stats to back this up? I went to QC and most of the girls i know are heterosexual and married. Like all girls schools, it churns out a few lesbians. I also know a few girls who did it back then but have grown out of it.

    How does their sexuality affect their performance on the pitch? If it doesn't, this is utter balderdash!

    Lol Linda you won't kill someone.
    And you are totally right with that ballet line. No kidding
    This is so wrong tho even though I don't have a thing for same sex relationships but I don't think they should be punished for making their choices.

    Been a lesbian is not good for Bible condemns that, but that will not stop the ladies from playing their game.

    Secondly, who known if the lady coach is one of the lesbians and probably one of the ladies might have refused she the sexual practice and she decided to punish her by sacking whereby it affect others. If not I don’t see the reason why been a lesbian will be a an issue of discussion in football team to the extend of dismissing a footballer.

    I am not judging but that is only how I see/ understand the whole thing.

COACH IF U REMOVE ANYBODY FROM THE TEAM, U TOO WILL BE REMOVED. LAW OF KARMA IS STILL WORKING.
