Exactly. Qatar has been criticised for its stance on same-sex relationships, its human rights record and its treatment of migrant workers. As much as I love the sport, players and have not missed a single World Cup since Diego Maradona scored his “Hand of God” goal against England in 1986… I, for one, would not be able to forgive myself for supporting a World Cup hosted by Qatar with Iran or Russia playing and, as a result, unfortunately I am going to be busy painting my pretty little toenails and dyeing my hair this year.

Edit: Serious answer - I also post articles about Russia, China, Iran & North Korea… Not because I am promoting them, but because I want to bring attention to the atrocities they commit.

I don’t need anymore of ‘that sweet important Reddit karma’, as you so explicitly put it as I have earned enough front page karma in the last 3 months to last me a lifetime. However, I am glad that some trolls can earn karma at my expense. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Oh, and BTW… I am not a ‘liar’ or a ‘he’ 🤦‍♀️

Serious question, why are you posting articles promoting the World Cup if you're boycotting it?

How's the karma stock price these days? Is it going downhill à la tech companies?

Everything you said is true but, take a look At the other countries it’s been held in Qatar is not doing as near as many terrible things as places it’s been held

Russia 2018, Brazil 2014, South Africa 2010, 1978 Argentina, 1934 Italy are the ones that come to mind most readily. All are either mega-corrupt at best and human-rights lax or straight up disappearing people at worst
