    What fifa does not understand is that NO MATTER what they do, they will NOT get people stop! Even if the majority of the fans stop saying "puto" for the sake of the team, there will ALWAYS be a group of idiots who will not care because whatever happens to the team will not affect them directly.
    Plus, I don't think it's fair to punish the team for what the fans do or say.

  • Falconfest
    Falconfest 9 months ago

    Funny how the term "PUTO" is not even homophobic. It directly translates to "fuck boy" or a promiscuous person. But the irony here is that while FIFA is hating on the best football fans on the planet (MEXICANS) for so called homophobic chants, they are holding this world cup in Russia which has a horrible track record with LGBT rights. Then the next world cup, in Qatar, there it's illegal to be a homosexual. FIFA's supidity is unbearable and I hope more of its corruption is exposed.

    Unpopular opinion: if the team is held to a sportsmanship standard, the fans in the stadium should be as well. This has nothing to do with political correctness, but sportsmanship. This is my opinion. Sorry, not sorry.

    The word "Puto" is not homophobic. This is just a stupid lie to make headlines. The word "puto" or "puta" is the same as calling someone "bitch" in English. This has nothing to do with homophobia!

  • Danny Herrera
    Danny Herrera 9 months ago +1

    I always thought of the word "puto" to translate as "fucker" in English...
    Not homo or gay...
    Maricon or marica are the only word I've known to be for gay....
    Don't know why ppl are making a big deal about this....
    Just like when you say "puta!" In English it's like saying "fuck!" Or "Dammit!"...
    And when they say "hijo de tu puta Madre" litterally translates to "son of a bitch"...

  • Daniel Valdez
    Daniel Valdez 9 months ago

    People need to realize that the Puto chant isn’t in anyway a homophobic chant! It doesn’t translate to “faggit” in Mexico, if they were trying to call the keeper gay they would use the word “joto”. They’re basically just calling the keeper a “little bitch”

  • Unintentional Effectiveness

    Is it stupid that FIFA could sanction the team with something heavier than a fine, like pts for example? YES. Is PUTO a bad word? YES. Is it more slang than the homophobic dictionary translation? YES. Do I feel bad for the Mexican fans? NO. We know the rules and keep using it, wether is fair or not, we use it in their tournament when we clearly have been warned. I don’t care for the chant. It can stay or go for all I care and freedom of speech is something I stand behind but if they have set a precedent and warning have been made. Then the ball is in your court, you decide if it’s that important to possibly cost your team more. Zero sympathy for the fans. Y’all are like the kid that gets told not to touch the stove because it’s hot and you might burn yourself and do it anyway and cry about it like no one had warned you beforehand... Need to grow up, the chant is meaningless and between the sombreros, the masks, the flags, etc etc what more do you want to feel Mexican? Fucks sake, this is a stupid stand you guys are making and the worst part is that you don’t speak for me or more importantly the players who have denounced it and yet they are the ones that could be affected. Shame on you guys for promoting the continued use of it, not because of its meaning but because you know of the ramifications.

    First if all it is not even a gay slur so it's not even being homophobic. Secondly, they have Russia host the world cup while it is a homophobic country. Third of all they have Qatar host the next world cup while they have slaves so if they were really concerned about people's well being and feelings they wouldn't have done that. In conclusion Fifa is just money hungry and wants as much money as possible while contradicting themselves

    the spanish slur "joto" would be a homophobic anti gay slur translates to "faggot". "puto" has multiple meanings, 1 of them being " male prostitute", another meaning is "fucking"/"fucker". Like "you fucking bitch" or "you little fucker". Mexicans chant "ehhhh puto" in the stands meaning "heyyyy fucker". NOT "faggot" at all.

    So fans yelling potentially homophobic slurs during a game is grave enough to get consistent fines and have point deductions considered but a country where it's literally illegal to be gay and can be punishable by up to death is A-ok and are going to host the next world cup??? Ok FIFA. Makes sense. 100% airtight logic. Totally consistent. No corruption here.

      Kri S from every source I can find homosexuality is illegal and very looked down upon in Qatar. My point is that FIFA is extremely hypocritical and inconsistent by trying to appear morally progressive and intolerant of bigotry by fining $100,000 mexico for their fans homophobic slurs yet hold a world cup where (amongst various other human rights violations) homophobia is THE LAW. So that's what slurs have to do with the choice of Qatar.
