I think the USWNT athletes in both hockey and soccer live on a different planet where any of their behavior is excused and any criticism is inherently sexist in their minds. These are the people who think that since they are at the top of the food chain in their realm that they should be celebrated and paid the same as top soccer stars like Messi or Ronaldo.

The USWNT vs. Thailand looked like this Monty Pyhton sketch and we're all supposed to be 100% okay and even celebrate Rapinoe flopping on the pitch after the 9th goal? Yeah right.
