Megan Rapinoe isn't one to shy away from the media.
In a new interview with the Guardian, the two-time FIFA Women's World Cup champion discussed a wide range of issues, including social justice, pay equality and President Trump.
The 34-year-old expressed confusion as to why her parents are not progressives.
Perhaps Rapinoe is the expression of their sublimated liberalism, the things that her parents can't say, I suggest.
Rapinoe doesn't understand why neither of her parents are "progressive", she told the Guardian. "I know. And I'm very similar to how they are, even though I think my dad voted for Trump and I'll say: 'I don't get it. I'm always saying: 'You guys should really be Democrats!"
Nebraska football fans love team’s new alternate black jerseys
The Nebraska Cornhusker football squad is preseason ranked No. 24 in the Associated Press preseason poll released Monday. There's a good chance both teams enter that game undefeated and that it will be slotted for primetime.
"I was like: "You guys need to get on board or get out".
Though her beliefs may differ from those of her parents, Rapinoe has been vocal about the support she has received from her family.
Rapinoe spoke about her parents and their politics, while talking about their reaction to finding out that she was a lesbian.
"There's been some major blow-ups. There's definitely been some dust-ups". "I'm very close to my family. It's not like: 'Ugh, I'm from a conservative town and I never talk to them any more'". And I feel like I have seen progress and growth. I would love it if people understood you should never say racist things and be okay with gay people, or whatever it is.
She said that her parents had anxiety tied to her sexuality after she came out while studying at the University of Portland. Despite her liberal views, Rapinoe is close to her conservative relatives. "Meanwhile, their kids were dropping out of high school and having drug problems and doing all these insane things, and they were like: 'You don't have any problems!"
ACA blasts English fans for booing injured Smith
After winning the first Test, Australia now holds a 1-0 lead in the series. The third test starts Thursday in Leeds, making Smith a doubtful starter.
US Women's Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, a staunch Trump critic, has revealed that her father voted the Republican in the 2016 election and both her parents ardently watch Fox News.
She also understands why she and the US national team's activism gets the attention it does.
In another portion of the interview, Rapinoe claimed that the U.S. Women's National Team is "everything [President Trump] loves with the exception that we're powerful, strong women". "... The Women's Basketball Association has been fighting for all these things - but they're gay and black, and nobody wants to talk about that". After the team did win, she doubled down on her decision.
"I feel like we can see the world changing around us and we're a huge part of that, effecting that change", Rapinoe said.
