So, history is made with the first female conmentator in the World Cup.
Myself personally, I’m not against diversity at all. If someone has the ability to do something with more quality than someone else then you rightfully assign the task to that individual until the one lacking quality becomes better.
Vickis commentary was hardly going to get it perfect first time was she? But this doesn’t mean Diversity isn’t immune to criticism. It feels like criticism is slammed as sexism whereas my issue is her lack of experience comentating on medium size games - she seems to have jumped from Rookie to Expert in almost no time.
The case for this is that Vicki would be an “inspiration" to other females out there that dream of being commentators.
The case against is that we are telling aspiring female commentators that you can commentate at the top level without much experience and you are immune to Male criticism because that is simply Misogynistic if you do not agree with this method.
What do you all think? I believe in working your way up and achieving these positions and not having them handed to me because of my Gender
