"BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): Absolute sillineess. And bad for the country by way. When even the stuff that we take a break with, you know, sporting, is turned into this. It's pretty obnoxious. And we're not talking about 1968 in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement with US sprinters on the US national team at the Olympics raising the Black Power fist because American politics are polarized around race in '68. We're not talking about that. We're talking about -- gay marriage is legal across the United States by Supreme Court diktat. We're talking about Megan Rapinoe is getting million dollar contracts specifically because of her sexuality, and because she's a very very good soccer player. But let's not make any mistake, if she was a very good soccer player and she were not a very outspoken lesbian, she would be getting fewer contracts because she's seen as a political figure. She's sort of Colin Kaepernick but with actual talent at her sport."
