World Rapid Championship (Women) (2017)/Ju Wenjun
|Dec-26-17|| ||rokko: Unfortunately, without the former world champion and Nr. 1 (who does not like to play against women) and without the reigning rapid and blitz world champion (who did not like to play in a backward country like Saudi Arabia - even if the dress code is less stringent than in Iran), this tournament is of less interest.|
|Dec-26-17|| ||Sokrates: Unfortunate, yes, but IMO it's much worse than that. It's simply a genuine scandal that FIDE forces women in chess to play in countries who demand a certain religious determined dress-code of the participants. By allowing this, FIDE endorses oppression of women in chess and punishes those who stand up for their clear right to dress in accordance with their own culture and as billions in the free world do.|
It is also a scandal - still IMO - that some women don't seem to care about it and have no problems in gaining titles, which they KNOW are hollow and worthless. There is no honor, no reputation, no prestige in getting a title at this venue, when Hou Yifan, Anna Muzychuk and other strong players don't participate. Shame on those who participate, traitors as they are to the most obvious and basic rights for women on this planet.
It's of no use to appeal to the conscience of FIDE, since this highly flawed organisation has no conscience whatsoever.
|Dec-26-17|| ||Marmot PFL: Money talks, and the Saudis have barrels of it.|
|Dec-26-17|| ||docbenway: I can understand some players being driven by desperation for the big prize fund but Carlsen apparently has plenty and for him to play there gives approval to the Saudis and their wholesale murders in Yemen, the dirt bag wahabis exporting jihad, and their treatment of women as chattel.|
|Dec-26-17|| ||Annie K.: On the women's dress code, according to the FIDE announcement at http://riyadh2017.fide.com/2017/11/... -|
<FIDE is pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with the Organisers that the dress code for the event will be dark blue or black formal suits, with white shirts, either open necked or with a tie, for men and dark blue or black formal trouser suits, with high necked white blouses for women. There will be no need to wear a hijab or abaya during the games, this will be a first for any sporting event in Saudi Arabia.>
Have to wonder what happens when they leave the playing venue, mind you.
|Dec-26-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: Welcome to the free world.|
|Dec-27-17|| ||Sokrates: Thanks, <Annie K.> for the quotation. I am sure "FIDE is pleased" - in their narrow minds they have managed to move this utterly male chauvenistic and medieval regime significantly and mention the absense of hijabs and abayas as a triumph. Just like it's a sensation in S-A that women are allowed to drive cars now! Wow, what a progress! They still have to be accompanied by a man in public, though. They are, after all, second class beings.|
"When in Rome, do as the Romans do". the proverb says. (Unfortunately) the S-A's can do as they please in their country, that's their prerogative. But international organisations like FIDE can decide whether their players should be forced to abide to the rules of "Rome" or not. And they have decided that they should and force the women to comply if they want to compete for the world championship. Those who won't comply - for very good reasons - exclude themselves in the eyes of FIDE, and like always FIDE doesn't care if that means that the championship doesn't reflect the present state of players. They are "pleased" with "a" champion, whether she is actually the best in the world or not.
Sure, "money rules" and apparently freedom can be bought for the right amount of coin.
|Dec-27-17|| ||ossipossi: Solar panels just around the corner. Petroleum will still be in use -for embalming mummies.|
|Dec-27-17|| ||morfishine: A convention of fast women
|Dec-27-17|| ||Marmot PFL: <They are, after all, second class beings.>|
That's how it's always been in chess too.
|Dec-28-17|| ||PhilFeeley: Congratulations to Ju Wenjun for winning. And it's good to see Elizabeth Paehtz doing so well.|
|Dec-28-17|| ||siamesedream: Congratulations to Rapid World Champion 2017 <GM Ju Wenjun>!|
|Dec-29-17|| ||Sokrates: Congrats to Hou Yifan and the Muzychuk sisters for being the true female chess champions of the world.|
|Jan-04-18|| ||Harvestman: <PhilFeeley> my sentiments exactly!|
