Her recent feature in Stellar Magazine, however, has got quite a few women feeling a bit at odds with the tennis superstar.
In her feature, Williams discusses being a feminist, but also make a statement that flies in the face of feminism.
I definitely am a feminist. I like to stick up for women and women’s rights. So many things happen and I just think, ‘Wow, why don’t we have a chance?’ If that makes me a feminist, I am proud to be one.”
“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.”
Feminists, Trans women, and Cis women who cannot or choose not to give birth, aren’t so here for Serena’s statement.
Just take a look at some of the comments posted to Madame Noire:
