RIP 'Blue Girl'

Although I have all but abandoned football, the story of Sahar Khodayari ("Blue Girl"), really saddened me.
It saddened me because she was a young girl who saw no other way but to kill herself; it saddened me for the inaction of so many over so many years, for an outright violation that has existed for so long; it saddened me for the women and girls, all over the world, who are discriminated against because they are of the same sex as all our Mothers.
It saddened me because people die because of football and because of so many other irrelevant things.
