Ah, good job, sir! A hissy fit. Because that is 100% for sure a term that has never been used to dismiss women as uniquely emotional, irrational, and unable to control their tempers. Strange but true: no doctor, whether in ancient Greece or in 19th and 20th century Europe and North America, ever claimed that hysteria was a female condition. Indeed, the word "hysteria" does not have any etymological connection with the word "uterus," the bleating of social-injustice warriors notwithstanding.

You’re being hysterical.

Excellent summary of the situation. I have always tried to like Serena, but then get reminded by episodes like this just how fake and self-indulgent she really is. I'm quitting her for good...
I'm in the same boat, and the sad part of it is that if she would just own it in the press conference I'd be ok with it all. Something like "On court sometimes my emotions get the better of me and I was wrong" but she'll never do that.

Bad bad behavior by Serena. Yet the response by many was just as bad or worse. What a hot mess humans are in. Get the popcorn gonna be a hard ride down.

Let's see if my theory is correct. Every time I post on one of these threads, no matter how nasty it has gotten up until that point... it's immediately closed.

No it wasn't sexism, however the postings of many of the males on this board in response to Serena have been sexist.

Males of TTW relax. Just because one woman screams sexist does not mean you have to rally the troops of misogyny and decide to hate on all women that have a life that doesn't include you. You'd be shocked to know that feminists do not go around plotting world domination, most have children and husbands and would actually like you in real life (assuming that you don't act like you do here).

Have a lovely day.

My final take on this whole Serena mess is that nobody's opinion on her changed. Whoever already liked her will stay on her side no matter what. Whoever already disliked her has even more ammo now

Thanks, sweetie. Just so you know, I'm working on my rage with the same therapist who's had such great success with Alex Jones and his anger management problems.
Would be nice if you introduce that therapist to Serena Williams who needs it more than anyone in WTA.

Feminists of TTW relax.

The more you try to counter criticisms of your ideological rubbish, the more apparent it becomes that feminism is about misandry, not equality.

That's a fair assessment for posters on here - although there seems to be a shift in those that were middle ground before.

Sorry, I refuse to accept a final take.
I will bash Serena from here to eternity whenever I’m bored.
And she’ll continue to have millions of dollars, 23 and counting slams, and the adoration of millions of people

And you? Well you’ll just look angry and silly.
