Megan Rapinoe, anthem kneeler and outspoken advocate of almost every left-wing cause, is set to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Joe Biden.
The announcement came Friday that Rapinoe, a captain on the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT), and 16 others had been selected to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor.
While the USWNT has reigned as one of the top women’s teams in the world during Rapinoe’s time on the roster, the decision to award her with such an honor most likely stems from Rapinoe’s relentless advocacy of liberal causes. Most recently, the USWNT vet made waves by blasting men for remaining “silent” after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“You’ve been silent to us, as a whole,” she said, “Stand up, say something. This is your wife, this is your sister, this is your friend, this is your girlfriend, this is the mother of your children. This is all of us. And you are allowing a violent and consistent onslaught on the autonomy of women’s bodies, on women’s rights, on women’s minds, on our hearts, on our souls.”

Before that, Rapinoe chose leftist activism over the future of women’s sports by arguing for the “100%” inclusion of males identifying as females at all levels of women’s athletics.
“I’m 100% supportive of trans inclusion,” Rapinoe said in an interview with Time.
“I think people also need to understand that sports is not the most important thing in life, right? Life is the most important thing in life. And so much of this trans inclusion argument has been put through the extremely tiny lens of elite sports,” she said. “We’re talking about kids. We’re talking about people’s lives.”

“Rapinoe, who was at training camp in Denver when the White House called to inform her of the honor, thought she was getting a prank or robocall when she saw her phone say “White House,” U.S. Soccer said in a statement via the Associated Press. “She showed her phone to a teammate, who encouraged her to answer the call.”
Rapinoe made headlines for saying she would refuse a White House visit in 2019 while Donald Trump was president. But, now that someone she agrees with is taking up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she seems to have changed her tune.

When Beyza's family finally reported him to police, Tekin broke into their family home in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 6 and shot the 16-year-old teen in the neck.

The victim's father, Cuma, told local media that Tekin had established contact with his daughter on Instagram and hounded her with requests she kept on rejecting.
According to local reports, Tekin was facing charges of sexual abuse of a child and sexual intercourse with a minor at the time of the attack.
He was also slapped with an indefinite restraining order forbidding him from contacting his victim.
Reports suggest Tekin spent a short stint behind bars before being freed while police investigations were ongoing.

Femicide is a growing problem in Turkey, particularly after the country officially quit the Istanbul Convention in July last year.
According to the 2021 Annual Data Report by the 'We Will Stop Femicide Platform', 280 women were killed by men in 2021, while 217 women were found suspiciously dead.
According to data from the 'Monument Counter' - "a digital memorial for women killed by violence" that is updated daily - 246 femicides have taken place in Turkey so far this year.
On the same day, Selcuk Cetiner, 41, threw his beautician girlfriend Mehlika Derici, 35, off a cliff in a fit of jealous rage.
The twisted lover dragged his partner to her death in a suspected murder-suicide in Tekirdag Province, Turkey.
According to witnesses, Cetiner pushed Mehlika to the ground before the two picked her back up.
He then allegedly shouted: "If we die, we die together."
Before Mehlika could react, he clasped his arms around her waist and then hurled himself off the cliff, taking her with him.
The pair plummeted 82 feet to their deaths.
