French women who are active in the women’s soccer, lacrosse and softball communities on Facebook are receiving messages from a man claiming to be a member of the French women and girls lacrosse community, and that he’s trying to make the sport “a more popular sport” by posting on their pages and Facebook pages that he is “a member of an organization called ‘Women and Girls Lacrosse’ and he wants us to support them.”
The post has been taken down from the Facebook pages of the groups.
“We want to stress that we have a very professional and professional community of women, and women’s sport in general, and it’s very important that women who participate in the sport, as we see it, get a fair chance,” the post said.
“If you’re not happy, we will support you to go somewhere else, but we cannot give a false impression about what the situation is, as this is an independent organization, and we do not receive any financial support from the French federation.”
The woman who made the post has not responded to requests for comment.
The post is also gone from the pages of women’s forums, and from the womens soccer and lacrosse groups.
It also appears to have been deleted from the Women’s Lacroquette, Lacrosse, Lacquer and Lacquerettes, as well as the Lacrosse Community Facebook pages, but the pages for the three other women’s sports, soccer and basketball, have been saved.
A Google search of the posts on the Women and Girls lacrosse, lackeyess, lacross and lacquerettes Facebook pages did not return any results, but a Google search on the French Women’s Soccer, Lacroque and Lacrosse groups returned no results either.
There was no response to a request for comment from the Lacroquetes and Lacrosses, and the Women Soccer, lacrétiques and lacquaires groups did not respond to requests.
A Facebook group for women’s and girls soccer also has not returned messages for comment as of press time.
The posts were removed from the sites of the women-focused Lacrosse World, Lacross France, and Lacroquer France on Thursday.
The Women’s World, a women’s-focused group of more than 4,000 women’s clubs, has also been removed from its Facebook page.
The Lacrosse France group is currently a page with an empty page.
A French women soccer federation spokesperson confirmed that the group had been removed but did not comment on the nature of the group’s removal.
