Someone better go check and see if Gloria Steinem is still standing. Serena Williams is having a baby with fiancé/Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Rather than wait and do one of those “Ask Me Anything” sessions on her piece’s website, she blabbed to an Irish magazine about how she doesn’t like watching birthing videos. She also said pregnancy takes her up a notch in the woman caste.
“I have so much respect for so many women [for giving birth]. I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It’s going to be something incredibly impressive to go through.”
Oooo, child, good luck in that next doubles match with sister Venus Williams. She doesn’t have any kids, so I’m sure she’s going to take her fake woman tennis racket and pop you over the head with it!
The Grapevine is out saying the feminist hornet’s nest has been thwacked by Serena, even though she has identified as a feminist in the past. Oh, and the whole breaking down barriers for women in sports, being vocal about equal pay and women’s rights, and arguably being the G.O.A.T. Sorry, Tom Brady, I know that’s blasphemy.
AOL (does it still say “You’ve got mail”?!) had the fan reaction. Girl better do another video with Beyoncé to throw these people off her scent:

Listen, let’s just all calm down. Huss is pregnant, and pregnant women do some shady shit, but we give them a hall pass… out of fear. My mom apparently stood around in the kitchen in a muumuu eating a Costco-sized jar of jalapeños watching Oprah when she was pregg-o with my eggo, and my dad knew better than to ever question it, lest he wind up getting kicked back to the Italian homeland!
