Sometimes you reach a point where you have to move on. Move on from someone who you have feelings for yet you know nothing is going to happen. I’m tired of feeling like my feelings will never be returned. I have to move on to be happy again. Because right now, I’m not.

  #but what if i still believe there's a chance it could work out and I don't want this to be another failure?

Disclaimer right here that I’m not your best source of info.

If you’ve read her memoir, you know that she’s had a rough family history. One night, both parties (?) having consumed alcohol, she got into an altercation w/ her 17 year old nephew. Both sides spewed some hateful language / verbal insults and both sides physically lashed out. Lots of details that we as the public doesn’t know. Her trial is set for November, after WCQ.

Now, the media is in my opinion blowing it out of proportion comparing her to Ray Rice/etc. male athletes claiming a “double standard” is at work as Hope continues to play for USWNT and US Soccer advertises her shutout record, etc. This article explains that stuff well.

My take on this is that Hope isn’t a criminal, that the situation was not that serious. She doesn’t have a repeated history of violence. This was one muddled incident in which both sides were engaged in an alcohol influenced family argument that got physical but not overly so. We don’t know many specifics at all. Obviously, I’m not too credible a person given that I’m just a teenager trying to understand this stuff and obviously as a big Hope fan, I’m unconsciously-or-not on her side. 

It just really bothers me that headlines keep asserting that she should step down from the team, that the media is framing it so that the casual first glance reader (the general population of Internet browsers) automatically associate her with those infamous men—perhaps even rank her above their guilt as a female athlete, and perpetuate the undermine-feminism trend.
