He never should have admitted fault.
It was obvious that the girl who was kissed was not against it.
So what exactly is the fault? Who was harmed? Where is the crime?
According to the left, it’s a crime against decency, because feminism is this weird neo-Puritan ideology. But that is a bizarre abstraction that no one understands and can’t be expected to honor.
Spain’s under-fire soccer chief Luis Rubiales remained defiant Friday, saying he made “some obvious mistakes” but had been treated unfairly over his unwanted kiss with a star player.
Rubiales has been under mounting pressure to resign after kissing Jenni Hermoso on the lips following Spain’s victory in the Women’s World Cup in Sydney last month.
He has insisted the act was consensual, a claim Hermoso firmly rejects, with the player calling it an “impulse-driven, sexist, out of place act without any consent on my part.”
In a statement published widely on Spanish media, Rubiales – president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) – lashed out at a “manufactured campaign” against him while saying he has also received great support from people on the streets and on social media.
“Last August 20th I made some obvious mistakes, which I regret sincerely, from the heart. It is true that for such errors I have asked for forgiveness,” Rubiales said in the Friday statement.
“I have learned that no matter how great the joy and deep the emotion, even when A WORLD CUP IS WON, sports leaders must be required to exhibit exemplary behavior, and mine wasn’t,” he continued, adding he was apologizing to players, the federation, fans and anyone who may have been offended by his actions.
However, Rubiales said both sides consented “in the affectionate hugs” and “affectionate mutual gestures,” which took place on the stage during the presentation of the World Cup medals.
If we were following traditional Puritanism, both participants would be equally judged as violating values of purity.
But in neo-Puritanism, the woman is always pure, always a victim.

The claim is that the girl doesn’t even know she was a victim of “violence.”
