This year's Women's World Cup helped spark a much-needed discussion about the gender inequality surrounding FIFA. Whether it's the artificial turf women are forced to play on or the pervy comments about their clothing, female soccer players are subject to discrimination in a multitude of subtle and not-to-subtle ways. You would think after they got third place in this year's tournament, all of that would be put aside for a moment to honor all the hard work they put in. Unfortunately, the official Twitter account of England's soccer league managed to be a dick to them, even when congratulating them.
