After Atalanta features a "pro-woman" article today by an obviously sexist journalist named Andrea Burns. To say that Burns doesn't get it is to understate. First, as ken points out, what hole has she been living in that she thinks gender equality exists in sports? And beyond that piece of shocking ignorance are the statements Burns makes about Amelie Mauresmo, whom she describes as "masculine," and losing "the swimsuit contest," thereby totally buying into rigid, patriarchal definitions of gender roles and physical attractiveness.
Says Burns, "Seems like a hollow victory for the girls. How can we ever be taken seriously this way?" Thank you, Andrea, but if I need a feminist advocate, I prefer to look elsewhere.
