Oh hell, no.

Regarding the wage gap, I think you need to do a little bit more research.

Men’s soccer actually does NOT generate more revenue, at least not according to the Wall Street Journal. The women’s national team outearned the men’s team from 2016–2018. So that argument doesn’t stand. The article you linked may pertain to the payout for the World Cup itself, but it doesn’t translate to their regular wages and what they’re paid per game during regular seasons.

Her distaste for the current resident of the White House is completely justified, as he’s a racist, sexist bigot. Just because gay people are getting executed in other countries doesn’t mean that they’re not also getting discriminated against here. Your point of view lacks compassion and understanding.

The reason Millenials and Gen Z are unhappy with this country is because, frankly, there are a lot of things about it that suck. Megan Rapinoe isn’t a victim. She worked her ass off for that championship, and expecting her to act like some appreciative demure woman is totally sexist. If a dude were doing the same things, I guarantee you that people wouldn’t be reacting the same way.
