It is official. It is irrefutable.

The U.S. women's national soccer team is the best in the world.

So it would be natural for Americans, I mean all Americans, to support their women's national team by wearing their jerseys right?
And that's especially true in the world of soccer, because soccer is all about pageantry. What you wear is critical to show true support for your team.
And Nike, which is the official sponsor of both the Men's and Women's national soccer team, took in pre-orders just prior to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

But shortly after the pre-orders were sold out, Nike had to cancel all the orders. Why?

The answer lies behind the two stars you see above the crest.

These stars represent the number of World Cups that the U.S. women's national team has won (1991, 1995). Now after winning the 2015 World Cup, another star was added to their jerseys.
But of course, the men's national soccer team does not have any stars above the crest, because well...

they haven't won a World Cup yet.

So, Nike decided to cancel the orders for the men's version of the women's national soccer team jerseys because it could give the false impression that the men's team have won those World Cups.

What is this nonsense?

What should the men and boys, who made up 61% of the 13.5 million viewers that tuned in for the 2011 World Cup finals do?

It is such a shame that we still face gender inequality issues and it extends beyond the field. It even applies to fans and their freedom and passion to support their own team. A male fan should be able to wear an Alex Morgan uniform or Abby Wambach's uniform.
And who cares if the women's national team won three World Cups and the men's national team hasn't won any?

In the end, playing like a girl means you're a badass.

What do my sports fans think about this issue? Comment below!
