Do the American Outlaws Perpetuate the Gender Divide in US Soccer?

This is something that has been bothering me for a while, and I think so. This is my opinion based on various AO Twitter accounts and their website. This does not mean that all chapters do this, as I do not follow every chapter’s twitter accounts/websites.

Dozens of AO members traveled to Phoenix to support the men in red, white, and blue for a Camp Cupcake friendly.
