This may be a controversial and hot take, but i think feminism has reached a stage where they no longer know what they are fighting for, and some are fighting not for equality but dominance.
They want certain things to be equal with men but still want to societal advantages of being a woman. In tennis, women get equal pay for Grand Slams but still play less than men which is unfair to the men.
It is equivalent to a woman getting the same monthly pay as a man in the work place but only working half the hours. Is that not also sexist towards men?
Or does sexism only apply one way now? It came across to me that Serena felt she should not be punished because A.
She is a woman, B. She is a mother, C. She has never been caught coaching before and D. Men do it all the time. Let's apply this to a normal every day situation.
Say if a woman is caught speeding and uses A. She has never been caught speeding before and D. Men speed all the time as exuses, does that make her exempt from a speeding ticket?
No it does not. Unfortunately in today's society, someone only has to play the victim card and everyone takes their side. Any thing that goes against them is automatically sexist or racist and they only have to play that card for people to agree with them.
You are not above the rules no matter who you are. That is what has happened with this Serena case, she played victim of sexism and everyone was up in arms.
If she never played that card then would this be such a big deal? There are cases of sexism in tennis.
The Cornet one was a much more of a sexism case than this but it does not get half the attention because Cornet is not Serena. Now i am all for equality, but it works both ways and that is what people tend to look over.
I am very happy that ITF people have a spine enough to stand by what's right as oppose to celebrity worshipping sycophancy that has become standard on both ATP and WTA tour.
Carlos Ramos is the only innocent one here, who did his job professionally and in accordance to rules. Serena is an intelligent and persuasive woman who is more than capable of acting like an adult a.
And her coach who probably look himself in the mirror and think he is a Greek god needs to be criticised more. He is the root of all that sprung out.
What we're seeing is a nice real world experiment of the intersection of privilege, money and politics. The integrity of the game and the reputation of officials do not matter in this context.
Also note the extreme standards that Carlos Ramos is being held to. Amidst all of this, Serena has successfully derailed the narrative on Saturday from a champion succumbing to a new comer, to a non-sequitur about women's rights, in a drama sequence entirely manufactured by her to grab all the attention from her opponent.
This is really what this is all about. Originally Posted by fpsychdoc View Post.

Serena brings ratings and ticket sells. She has all the right to cheat and verbally abuse umpires without penalty. Here is the issue and I said it again.
Here we have an umpire who showed sexism and treated women worse than men right? In every sport you have a way to report bad referees and make sure they dont keep refereeing until they either get more training and admit their wrong doings.
No one has reported Carlos Ramos. What does that tell you? They know they have nothing on him and followed the rule. So they decided to follow the emotional route and attacking him because factually they cant attack him.

Tennis umpires are the least qualified of all sorts of referee's in any discipline, they are not like football referees that have to actually you know, run around the field all the time, football referees for example unlike umpires have a serious list of requirements they need to meet to even officiate a junior match.
Then you have an umpire that sits still, has an entire set of linesmen making his job easier, and just needs to keep in mind a limited rule book. That is his hourly wage.
That wage goes up with the conditions, is it hot, is it a very long match, the longer the match, the hotter the weather, the higher his hourly pay.
Gotta imagine that an umpire sits more than one match per day. Linesmen make a fraction of that, and yet they have a far more physically demanding job than an umpire.
I can also confirm that Carlos Ramos earned his pay in that match. Old Sep 12th, , WTA Serena - Full statements, each take their side!

Protecting their big stars and letting this abuse further continue, spoiling the players even more. Not only he's putting the blame on the umpire, he accuses him of sexism and to top all of that he doesn't even mention anything wrong with Serena's behavior.
Did they make an statemenr for Cornet? Guys, you have to remember Serena has power and privileges and contacts. They would have never released such a statement for any other player.
Tennis can be so archaic sometimes. Why on earth are players not allowed to speak to their coaches, or communicate from the stands with their coaches, at a Slam?
Second of all, this is , and tennis is the only sport where coaches are treated as mannequins. I can't think of any other sport where coaches are expected to do all the work before the match, and attend the match, but not do anything while the actual match is going on I mean If tennis was really adamant about not illegal coaching then coaches shouldn't even be allowed to attend matches.

Well, that is the WTA at the moment You eviscerate one day and get eviscerated the next day. Totally expected, but nevertheless gross. I hope at least ITF will take a stand and protect their umpire, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
It wouldn't surprise me if now male umpires started asking to be exempt from officiating high-profile women's matches. I know I would if I were in their place, as I sure wouldn't want some entitled asshat to smear my name for no good reason and jeopardize my career.
And that would bring us a step closer to the "progressive" wet dream of living in a society with total public segregation of the sexes, like in an Islamic caliphate of some kind.
All these tennis authority people kiss the backside of the top players. They would never dare to criticize their top stars, because they are the ones who fill their pockets.
