Australian hockey forward Georgie Parker says the Hockeyroos are sick of being constantly mistaken for men by the media.
We can see why. It’s not like our women’s team aren’t impressive in their own right, as Commonwealth Games gold medalists who are ranked second in the world. Getting their identity correct shouldn’t be a big ask, should it?
The hockey star has posted a passionate Facebook status calling out the media for confusing her team with the men’s team, the Kookaburras. She’s even provided them with a ‘cheat sheet’, to avoid any further mistakes in the future.
“Hey journos, get it right,” her post began.
“You seem to need all the help you can get so Hockey Australia have put together a little cheat sheet for you.”
