Ego­tis­ti­cal rants are shame­ful

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, – A ten­nis star of yes­ter­year was fa­mously very fond of shout­ing: “You can­not be se­ri­ous” dur­ing high pres­sure matches when de­ci­sions didn’t go his way.

Well now what we surely can­not be se­ri­ous about is the hyp­o­crit­i­cal, ego­tis­ti­cal rant­ing of a woman who has made mil­lions from the most un­equal, anti-male sport in the world.

I re­fer to Ser­ena Wil­liams and the Wim­ble­don tour­na­ment, where women are paid the same as men but for less effort and bet­ter con­di­tions.

The player went on to con­vince peo­ple it was not for the money that she com­plained, rather equal­ity for women.

This was ac­tu­ally dis­re­spect­ing the whole prin­ci­pal.

One won­ders, have women’s equal rights cru­saders sunk so low as to pre­fer wing­ing bul­ly­ing, abuse and com­plain­ing, so as to get the same money for half the effort?
