    "Is it true that I’m only the 4th woman deserving of this award? I don’t think so," the U.S. women’s soccer star said in a gala celebration at Manhattan’s Ziegfeld Ballroom.

    “Is it true so few writers of color deserve to be featured in this publication? No,” Rapinoe continued. “Is it true so few women’s voices deserve to be heard and deserve to be read in this publication? I don’t think so.”

    Sigh....

    Truth to what she speaks of, but, man, it must suck to be so angry all the time about, like, everything.

    Besides Sports Illustrated can't even keep the employees it has....so running it down to a worldwide audience is hardly the smartest move....

    I had no idea who Rapinoe was. Talented athlete, but as is often the case, with people that focus on one or two things in life, they are typically clueless about the other 50 things that make life what it really is. Then if they somehow decide that they are incredibly insightful on a few of those other 50 things... watch out.

    Someone close to her should tell her to get out more.

    Friends, there is no "inequity" in pay. People are paid on average what their market value demands.

    What better time to speak 'truth to power' than when they've rewarded you for . . . 'speaking truth to power' [inequity in women's pay].

    It would have been entirely out of character (pun!) for her NOT to speak her mind - that's what GOT her the award.

    I'm OK with it, and more to the point, I'm pretty sure SI was too.

    Said the snake after you picked it up and it bit you, "you knew I was a snake when you picked me up."

    Snake, in this context, is T2P.
