Megan Rapinoe, star of Reign FC, the U.S. womens national soccer team and MVP of the 2019 Womens World Cup, singled out Colin Kaepernick in a speech Monday as she accepted an award for being one of Glamour magazines women of the year, saying, I dont feel like I would be here without him.
She began her remarks with a lighthearted shout-out to women this year. Every woman! Were just killing it the whole year. So shout-out to just women in general.
Then she turned more serious. Delivering a message that we can move on from losing alone to the belief in winning together, Rapinoe singled out the quarterback who has been out of the NFL since the spring of 2017 after his decision to kneel during the national anthem before games as one of her inspirations.
Kaepernick, she said, demonstrated courage and bravery and was filled with conviction, unafraid of the consequences. Because he knew, it really wasnt about playing it safe. It was about doing what is necessary and backing down to exactly nobody.
(snip)...she has become increasingly active and feuded publicly with President Donald Trump, declaring that she would not visit him in the White House after the U.S. team repeated as World Cup champion last summer.

Yeah, you won another liberal award. Pffft... I’m sure the Nobel, or an Academy Award, is not far behind.
maybe she can convert to islam and become another wife for kaepernick?
When I think of “glamour,” I do not think of her.
Isn’t that a picture of her in the next story?
A gender-fluid female thanking a gender-fluid male.
Megan Rapinoe is such a butch macho female, and Colin Kaepernick is such a whiny girly-man. Neither one seems able to catch a break and get recognition for what they pretend to be.
My heart breaks for them. NOT!
The rare times when “Woman of the Year” goes to a biological woman, she’s got no interest in men. That award is right up there with the Nobel Peace Prize in terms of usually going to the least deserving people imaginable.
You sure that’s a woman?
Freaks of a feather...
Does this “woMAN” have sponsors? If so, who?
Odd she says a man won this for her.
Oh, so NOW she is a woman.
Yeah. People who admire murderers and grifters like Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.
Yes, she is sponsored by Nike, Procter & Gamble, BodyArmor, Hulu, LUNA Bar, Samsung, and DJO Global.
You sure thats a woman?
Another day, another ignoramus
She is certainly not glamorous.
