Yeah… I think I AM going to ‘Qatar’ this World Cup out of my schedule.

I told myself i would boycott this tournament when i first saw the reports of labor treatment in 2011.

i'm sticking by that. I know my "boycott" is absolutely meaningless and will not affect the tournament in any way lol, but i just can't in good conscience watch a single minute of it

I hope enough of us do it so that their viewership takes a hit.

Just a genuine guy that wears his homophobia on his sleeve. Super helpful when compared to the people that try to be facetious about it

I don't think facetious homophobes exist.. I think they're just incredibly not self aware

You’re 100% right, just learned I’ve been using facetious incorrectly 🤦‍♂️

I would like to see a bunch of kids buzzing the Iranian players with drones wherever they go.

I came here to say this. Iran isn't half as bad as some other nations.

Oh yeah. They just slaughter teenage women for wanting freedom, then refuse to release the bodies to the families. No big deal.

We let them have a little brutal oppression, just as a treat


GoldenStateComrade t1_ivi03la wrote

And using literal slaves is no big deal huh?

You think Iran doesn’t do the same? Lol!

You’re arguing about which regime is more murderous like it’s cool.

So we should give them a pass since it could be worse?
