Default Why don't you ask Southgate about Afghanistan

Carlos Queiroz confronted a BBC journalist after another press conference was dominated by questions over political issues in Iran.

Approaching the journalist at the end of his pre-match press conference to preview Friday’s game against Wales, the Iran head coach demanded to know why other managers, including England’s Gareth Southgate, do not face similar questions on political situations.

Footage captured by other journalists in the room showed an irritated but calm Queiroz saying to BBC reporter Shaimaa Khalil: “Why you don’t ask to Southgate these kind of questions?

“I am talking with you. I ask the pleasure to talk with you. I am asking one thing to you now, the press conference is finished. Do you think it is fair also to ask other questions to other coaches?

“That is the only question I make. Why don’t you ask the other coaches? Why you don’t ask Southgate ‘what do you think about England and the United States that left Afghanistan and all the women alone? Why don’t you ask that?”

Rowling’s Razor
Which of these is more likely?
1) A person who is otherwise socially liberal and tolerant has taken a position on sex and gender that is driven by prejudice and hatred.
2) That person has some concerns about how changes in sex and gender law could have consequences for women and girls.
