Frändén: Stop twerka and focus on the real scandals

PARIS. Sometimes it really feels like year zero in women's football is never over, mostly because we never let it go further.

Sure, it is nice to find clear scapegoats, but it is time to stop twerka and focus on the real scandals, if you really care about the sport.

It's been a few days ago, the dj Martin Solveig asked Ballon d'or-winner Ada Hegerberg if she can twerka and since then the world has roughly learned two things: Who and Ada Hegerberg is and what to do when you twerkar.

women's football is a recurring target for sexism knew the vast majority of then in the past. The reactions in question to the Hegerberg have been many and sometimes very entertaining, after the evening when a dj is not to save her life, but took her fame to a new level.

Actor Hugh Grant (as well not have a clean record in the kvinnopolitiska issues, but still) succeeded perhaps best of all when he tweeted out a picture of Marie Curie, the nobel prize in physics and chemistry in the early 1900s, with the question ”But can you twerk?”

What happened at the Ballon d'or gala in Paris, and how inappropriate the question was to Hegerberg, really? Yes, I can count up maybe fifty major scandals that women's football has been the subject of, of which a handful have started and stopped with the Swedish Football association.

hiring a dj for playing the nominated songs during the evening and ask them to dance – Kylian Mbappé suffered the same fate and danced a bit reluctantly – it was well more than anything else, a contrived way to spice up a gala that are likely to be stiff and boring. ”Twerka”, for those of you who still do not understand exactly what it means and dare not question, is to literally shake her ass in a challenging way. The dance is seen in almost every R'n'B video, but is said to come from Côte d'ivoire from the beginning. The name is a summary of the ’twist’ and ’jerk’.

the Fact is that we failed her collectively

of course It is not a question worthy of a Ballon d'or winner, but there are, as I said, the more acute the problem if you really worried about sexism towards women's football. A problem is directly linked to what happened at the gala: A four-seconds-long video where Ada Hegerberg dismiss Martin Solveig after a idiotfråga became the lasting memory from the evening, the first ever in which a woman would receive the Ballon d'or. A paradoxical and, for all, småpolitisk effect of it was to herrbollen (hohoho) which was awarded to Luka Modric not received nearly as much attention as the Ada Hegerbergs.

Hegerberg has himself commented on the topic of sparse but smart the last few days, she has stated that she has not felt humiliated, but that the topic is important to lift. But the fact is that we failed her collectively when we hooked up us on a geeky question on her big night. She was expanding the queen and delivered a wonderful speech in which she ended with the call to all girls who play football to believe in themselves. What all of these girls learned from the Ballon d'or gala? You can get to see your biggest scalp so far in his career to be eaten up by the headlines about what in the context, completely irrelevant for it is said to you.

There are events when women's football förolämpats first hand, when prisbilar dealt to mr - but not damspelare, when the tributes to damspelare been cut ”due to lack of time” in tv-production. I sat myself on Uefa's own gala in Monte Carlo in 2015 when the player of the Year would be the men's and women's side and Michel Platini failed in his only task: to say the winner's name. CéIia Sasic received the award, Michel Platini reading the explanatory statement read, and called her anyway ”Cecilia”. It was not a few headlines out of it. When is, or was, anyway, Michel Platini launch an fotbollsman, whose absolute lowest kravbild is to know the world's best football players on both sides.

Nice for the moment to find a scapegoat

this is the most blatant examples of gender inequality in football. You know, all the other also, if the economy and the pathetic schemes of the Fifa and the Uefa. How Sweden's women's national until recently had an agreement with the Swedish Football association that gave them just over sek 200 per day when they were on the team.

Sometimes it seems the world of football believe that the sexism is the same thing as sexual innuendo that goes too far. They fly, of course, much better on social media. But I promise that it is a hundred times worse to be ignored and nonetheless rendered partially invisible than ”exposed” for a plump question from a obetydig dj (hand up all who talked with a dj in the services and got to a spiritual and fruitful discussion, by the way).
Maybe it was nice for the moment that we have jointly found a scapegoat to throw the leftover Metoo-the anger. We had composed ourselves a bit, there was another good question to ask to the organizers of the Ballon d'or gala, which attracted surprisingly little in the expanding aftermath: Why do France Football on the big jämställdhetstrumman when they 62 years after its founding is finally giving damspelarna the same price, just in order to institute a new prize for the U21 players, Kopa-statyetten awarded Kylian Mbappé, only to gentlemen?
