Fifa 16 gets female teams - Sexist and angry rants follows

I love soccer, i really do. But i don´t love people that hate on women just because they want to be a part of sports as well. And sadly enough, that´s the case with EA Sports Fifa 16.

Because when EA Sports has introduced female soccer players (12 teams) for the first time ever in the history of the Fifa series. A hate and sexist storm took shape.

And both EA Sports and female soccer players were targeted because of this (the announcement of female soccer players in Fifa 16). So this is my (Robin Ek The Gaming Ground) take on this matter.

You'll find its pronounced football!

TGG_overlord928d ago

US Vs UK English. And if you read the Youtube comments, you will find a lot of comments that states the right opposite xD

wheresmymonkey928d ago

Actually its not. It stems from the differnce between what the working class and upperclass called he sport in Britain.

the term Football won. on top fo that Fifa stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association.

Its known as football pretty much everwhere else except the US.

pompombrum928d ago

I'll never understand that.. usually out of respect I'll refer to it as soccer to North Americans but how did it even get the soccer name? It's a little disrespectful tbh. We don't name your Football something different, we refer to it as American Football.

zeal0us928d ago

Quite funny given the fact the UK were known to use the term "soccer" before it came popular with the US.

Didn't start with Americans. Used by far more than Americans. Don't start that nonsense.

The word soccer was created and used by the British yet Americans are blamed for it... just more anti-americanism fanatics because we don't have enough of that already.

Also what's wrong with having female soccer players?

TheJacksonRGN928d ago

Aussies call it soccer as well.

Soccer is actually an English term created by the brits.

They actually called it soccer at one point....THAT is where we got it from

They smartened up at some point and went with football and we never made the adjustment in the US, but yea Soccer is a British term.

Unless SJWs buy the game in bulk, it's a waste of time and resources which could've been used on something that actually matters.

Perhaps, the breast physics will be good enough to encourage players to try out the women's teams, but not for anything more than performing various jumping maneuvers repeatedly.

Still, if someone really wants to prove the demand is there, they should release a women only football/soccer game.

pompombrum928d ago

Being honest, it probably isn't really a time sink and it's not like the graphic's department have much to do on Fifa anyway. It also doubles up as fantastic PR to kickstart the advertising.

Timesplitter14928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

So what's your definition of a SJW? A person who accepts the existence of women?

Also I just noticed your avatar says "Straight Pride". It definitely sounds like you're the type of guy who has a problem with social progress in general

Pastorfuzz928d ago

@timesplitter14.I am also proud I am straight. Does that mean I also have a problem with social progress? No it does not!

Timesplitter14928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

@Pastorfuzz

on paper, there's nothing wrong with being proud to be straight.

But i'd say 99.999% of the time, when someone does Straight Pride activism and label themselves as such, it's because they have a problem with homosexuality, women's rights and racial equality. It's a childish "me too" reaction to gay pride, because they feel threatened by the social acceptance of homosexuality

Gay pride is different, because unlike heterosexuality, there is an actual need to declare that being gay is not something that should be shameful, hence the expression "gay PRIDE"

Pastorfuzz928d ago

@timesplitter14. Where I come from, Straight pride activism is not about having a problem with Women's rights or Racism. It's only standing up for their sexual orientation, Just like the gay folks stand up for theirs.

Do you really think demand always comes before supply in the modern economy? You'd be surprised to hear about the risks and rewards of the "first to market" concept of trying something before your competitors.

Why create a female only soccer game to "prove" demand? They probably already know there isn't enough demand for an all female soccer game, but there is apparently enough to add them to an established franchise. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world.

Gwiz928d ago

In more languages than English(UK)(US) it's pronounced as football.

Nice publicity for ea. Instead of listening to the fans about updating the buggy and scripted fifa games,they do this. Expect this game to be a fifa 15 copy and paste,now with added boobs

MitchellK928d ago

What if i told you that the people who develop character models and graphics aren't the same people who work on bugs, gameplay, and physics...

carlingtat927d ago

anyone who thinks that fifa games are "scripted" are clearly idiots.

chrisx927d ago
