The former Arsenal Ladies player, Jo Potter, was hit by a sexist comment, while collecting her football ticket at Nuneaton Town on New Year’s Day.

England’s Lioness and World Cup 2015 bronze medalist posted on twitter about the incident:

It is so sad that such a prehistoric attitude is still around in men’s football but not a surprise. Every time the BBC tweets about women’s football, the “get back to the kitchen” comments are there for all to see.

Some of the replies are as vile as the original remark. You have the fans in denial, who basically call her a liar:

Then the idiots who think being sexist as a joke is okay, that kind of attitude says it all. Being sexist = funny seems normal for that person.

Clearly some fans still need to be educated and the ticket office person at Nuneaton Town probably is not even aware that he upset one of the world’s best players with his crass remark.
