Identity & Gender Politics Infecting Sport. Is this a silly post or is there something serious going on here?
Does Romelu Lukaku have a 24 inch penis and is it black? If mine were 24 inches long, would it be acceptable to sing about because I’m not black? Apparently, this football chant, which I would have zero knowledge about if the media were not reporting and making an issue out of it, is racist…
Oh Romelu Lukaku,
He’s our Belgian scoring genius,
With a 24 inch penis,
Scoring all the goals,
Bell-end by his toes…
If they sung this about my willy I suspect I’d find it hilarious, but each to their own.

Manchester United told to act by the FA over Romelu Lukaku penis chant following racism allegations
Lukaku 24-inch penis song is branded ‘racist’
At the same time allegations are being made against a male coach for the national female team…
Mark Sampson: Next England manager should be female, says Kelly Smith
“I’d like to see a female take over, but we’ll have to see what happens.”
…. said, Smith, who was capped 117 times and scored 46 goals, is not in the running to replace Sampson, although Manchester City’s Nick Cushing, Chelsea’s Emma Hayes and Seattle Reign’s Laura Harvey are among the possible contenders.
Yeah, I don’t want any bitches running our male football team. Is that a sexist sentence? Good job we have committees and experts to inform what is and is not sexist and racist, isn’t it.
The mind boggles.
