Girl with short hair kicked out of soccer tournament: ‘They only did it because I look like a boy’ – Los Angeles Times

An 8-year-old girl and the rest of her soccer team were disqualified from a girls tournament in Nebraska because event organizers thought she was a boy.

Mili Hernandez thinks it’s because of her short haircut.

“They only did it because I look like a boy,” Hernandez told WOWT-TV News.

Casey Mann, executive director of Nebraska State Soccer, said in a statement that the player’s appearance had nothing to do with the decision.
