“A gender-equal society would be one where the word ‘gender’ does not exist: where everyone can be themselves.”— Gloria Steinem
Yes you read my title right and I stand by this. What do I base this one? Matched Betting and Each Way sniping actually.
Everyone knows I messed up royally with my Matched Betting accounts so the blame is not the bookies on this one.However now I am doing Each Way sniping the sexism is real.
Myself and Mr Fire both do Each Way sniping the same days each week, for the same amount (he’s upped his stakes this month and I cant – more on that to follow), we follow the same rules and if I’m really honest we usually bet on the same dam horses as luck would have it (double the profit or losses depending on how you look at it)
We are even with mostly the same bookies and yet I am the one who gets restrictions put on my account whilst he doesn’t. I am not doing anything different to him but I have a name that makes it obvious I’m female and maybe I’ve been naive by ticking the “female” box.
Whilst this month he is upping his stakes to £5 each way (£10 a bet) I cant even get £1 with some bookies. When I question the bookies they say they are monitoring my account. NOT MR FIRES which is basically a carbon copy of mine.
Whats so wrong with a female punter? Are they afraid I’ll take all their lunch money at lunch time or I’ll loose my pretty little head and not understand these things? Maybe its as I’m cleaning them out with EW sniping….
So I’ll continue Each Way sniping and joining new bookies knowing I’m treated differently for simply being female. But thank you bookies, as now when I take your
hard earned cash – I’ll smile a little sweeter knowing how much you REALLY don’t want me to.
