USA Soccer's Alex Morgan Asks For Female Privilege

United States women's national soccer team player Alex Morgan was criticized for mocking Britain when she sipped tea after scoring a goal during the Women's World Cup.

Morgan responded by stating:
"There is some sort of double standard for females in sports to feel like we have to be humble in our successes and have to celebrate but not too much and have to do something, but it always needs to be a limited fashion," she said. "You see men celebrate all over the world in big tournaments, you know, grabbing their sacks or whatever it is."
"When I look at sipping a cup of tea, I'm a little taken aback and kind of laugh about it to see all the criticism," she continued. "So I"m a little disappointed about that.”
When male players act unsportsmanlike they are often criticized. Alex Morgan is asking for special privileges simply because she is a women.  The double standard is all hers. Morgan's actions were arrogant. She mocked the British culture. This is exactly why much of the world hates this team.

The article also displays an entrenched sexist culture within USAToday. The news organization was outraged that anyone would criticize a female athlete. Yet USAToday has no problem criticizing male athletes. They often criticize NFL player Odell Beckham . In this article, USAToday list a host of criticisms against him. They also criticize many other male athletes for an array of reasons in the NFL, NHL MLB and NBA. However, the sexists journalists of USAToday are angered that the same standards of conduct are now being applied to female athletes. 

Similar to  Morgan, USAToday is demanding female privilege.
