I don’t understand the feminist obsession with the WNBA

They continue to bring up the pay gap between the NBA and WNBA and how unfair it is. They also know that the NBA gets millions more viewers and way more sponsorships and such because of it. It’s basic supply and demand

If all these feminists just supported the WNBA in droves, there’s no way it wouldn’t excel. Yet they don’t. Instead they focus their energy on trying to shame men into watching it and supporting it, instead of doing it themselves
The problem is the feminists who would watch the WNBA would have to be basketball fans. And if you're a basketball fan, why the fukk would you watch the WNBA :heh:

Every thread about this situation is TLR kekeing and saying it’s her fault, as if Russians didn’t just plant the shyt. Now y’all mad there’s an article criticizing people for not doing enough to help her, despite y’all vocally shytting on her.
The ignoring of the simple fact that she wouldn't be in this predicament if she had just not tried to bring weed INTO A COUNTRY WITH HARSH PENALTIES FOR IT never ceases to amaze me.

dumbass trusts what Russians tell you :mjlol:

It makes you a criminal in a country where it’s a crime. Don’t understand comprehension brehs. Retarded fukk
Every single time my ship hit a foreign port, there was an orientation on the dos and don'ts of the country we were entering and stressed the importance of obeying their laws. It was emphasized over and over and over again, that if you get into trouble, legal probably wouldn't be able to get you out of jail. I had two people on my ship that we had to leave behind for acting a fool. Once in Malaga, Spain and the other time in Naples, Italy.

The first guy didn't return to our ship until we were about to head back to the US. He was stuck for about two and half months. I never saw the other guy again as I got out the next year.

“The reality is, [Griner’s] over there because of a gender issue — pay inequity,” Nneka Ogwumike, the head of the WNBA players union, told "Good Morning America" in April.”

They never mention how their league makes no money when they bring this argument.
I hate this situation so much because now you get a bunch of bullshyt think pieces and talking points.

There is nothing unequal about WNBA women’s pay. It’s a league subsidized by the NBA that generates very little money. The women don’t deserve anywhere near what men get. Even then the average WNBA player earns $120,000 a year only the top quarter of Americans earn that much money. They make that $ traveling the country playing a children’s game for a few months. No WNBA player needs to go overseas they are well compensated here. They leave because they want a bigger bag it’s that simple. Athletes don’t need to make millions or be filthy rich this is a recent development with the explosion of TV deals and endorsements. In the 60’s male NBA players were working secondary blue collar jobs and fighting wars while being professional athletes.

Griner’s situation also has nothing to do with being LGBT or being black. Not everything is an intersectional issue. Griner is in this situation because the U.S. is pretty much at war with Russia sending Ukraine several billion dollar aid packages. As a professional athlete she is simply an easy chess piece and middle finger to America. It’s her fault for not respecting they laws and being a dumb ass weed head.

Interesting that she blames men for income inequality, but fails to realize that without men these same women would be working day jobs and regulated to rec ball at LA fitness.
This what happens when you got dumb ass intersectional academics and journalists who are really hustlers writing pieces without knowing a damn thing about sports or business.

I guarantee you the writer of this article could not name 5 WNBA players and has likely never watched a single full length WNBA game but has the most to say.

Situations like this is why I hate the modern media and social media. fukkers just throw shyt against the wall and hope it sticks.

Britany got popped cause she was a low hanging fruit famous person with little money that Russia could get thrown is jail and use as a pawn in a geopolitical game between Russia and the West (mainly the US).

This ain't got shyt to do with nothing else. If it wasn't Britany it would have been another American who got caught up.

Its like folks ain't read history and seen this shyt before. I mean did anyone like see the history when Iran had a bunch of Americans held up in 1979? Iran had 52 freaking American diplomats that they held for well over a freaking year.

They were pissed that the US overthrew their country and put the shah in power. It took the Algiers accords in 1981 just to get the American hostages back to the US.

Even then the entire West wasn't at a political and literal military fight with Iran. Where as here all of Europe and the US are in a conflict with Russia. You got Putin who is in a quagmire in Ukraine and trying to get any win possible. If he gets a deal done for Brittany on Russia's terms with the dirty arms dealer and whatever else he wants. Then he gets more public, military and Oligarch support in Russia. Which possibly means the conflict in the Ukraine continues.

The US is in a bind because if they give Russia what they want that means it empowers Putin to ask for more or up the anty and try to do some more shady shyt like this. Plus it makes the US look weak to Russia and the European allies. Since it looks like the US is willing to negotiate on Putin's terms.

Its just an all around mess because Brittany is stuck in the middle of a Geopolitical conflict that she and most people like her (no matter the race) have no say so in this situation.
What you expect? Everything is about emotion. It’s a hustle for these writers.

U also got people like Boosie saying if it was Taylor Swift she would be free and Summer Walker posting a similar case of a white woman who was detained and freed before the whole Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Apparently Griner is being held because she black. That’s the message being put out there for black folk to consume.
