Must not refer to normal family division of labor

Culture Secretary Karen Bradley slapped down a Tory MP today after he told MPs that men in his constituency coach football teams while women wash the kits.

Kettering MP Philip Hollobone raised eyebrows when he made the comments during an urgent question in the Commons on the sex abuse scandal engulfing football.

He said: 'In a place like Kettering, football is 95 per cent of voluntary activity - the players, the coaches.

'And it's basically the dads who are the coaches and the mums who wash the team kit.'

His comments sparked outraged gasps among some MPs

Ms Bradley joked: 'I'm also aware of many husbands who are very good at washing the dishes and making sure that they make the food, I'm sure my husband, if watching this, will be concerned if I didn't put that on the record.'

That is probably how it looks to him.

In the USA soccer has more feminine activity than male but women probably do more support than coaching. A fact is a fact whether it is politically correct or not and the left genuinely shows their bias by constantly being outraged by them. They could accomplish much more by starting at the grassroots and driving change from within rather than screaming about needed change.
