This is sick.
The Nigerian Football Federation has been conducting a witch hunt to find lesbians in the national soccer team and ban them from playing in World Cup 2011.
FIFA NEEDS to do something about this!! They’ve stood up to bigotry before! In 1961 FIFA expelled South Africa from the World Cup because of its racist apartheid system, readmitting them only in 1991 after the release of Nelson Mandela.
This type of discrimination CANNOT stand!
We are caling on FIFA president Joseph Blatter to step in and do something about this. Homophobia has no place in society!
