A Few Things That Suck About Being A Woman Who Likes Sports

August 23, 2013 ‐ By Ashley Page


With football season on the brink and the baseball season being nearly over, it’s no surprise to see and hear women talking about and watching sports. Surely we all have our favorite teams that we like to root for each year and we proudly rock our jerseys and other fan gear. However, sometimes women aren’t taken seriously when it comes to enjoying sports. Here are 14 reasons it sucks to be a woman who likes sports, but who really cares what men think, right?

    What? This is not the case here in NOLA! We women are hard core Who Dat Saints fans and the men love it! Geaux Saints!

    I grew up watching football and basketball with my brothers. I understand both games and enjoy watching. I have never had problems with guys I dated and watching the game with them (as long as talking is to a minimum, LOL. Most men find it refreshing that a woman like to watch NFL football games, understands the game and can still be feminine!

    people probably think alot of women who live sports are lesbians.

    Number 8! Also…when people think you are into ‘masculine’ activities to get attention and be a special snowflake. I like wrestling and video games – two typical male activities and men always want to quiz me as they assume I only like these things to get attention from men or because it’s fashionable or something.

    I dated one guy who didn’t watch football. One Sunday’s when I would go over to his place and I asked him to turn the channel to the game he said “Do I have to? I only like to watch at the end.” I’ll let you guess it we’re still together… GO GATORS!!!!

    I had to break up with an ex for this. He thought he knew everything about sports… Then I showed up. I taught him stuff about his OWN team. It came to ahead when lost a game of 2k11. It was the first time I beat him and he went crazy. Called me butch and said I needed to be more of a woman, while I had my freakum dress and 4in heels on before a scheduled date. I called him a b!tch and told him to step his game up. Some men just can’t handle a woman liking things that are are considered “manly”.

    I’m from the south, which is pretty gender neutral when it comes to fandom. Also, I like the gear they’re coming up with for female fans. Roll Tide Roll!!
