Bartoli called too fat to win Wimbledon

I keep up with tennis and I am shocked to see this article about Bartoli. Some are saying she didn't deserve to win Wimbledon last weekend because she is fat and ugly. Idiots! Those jerks must be high on drugs. She is no super model true, but she is pretty and NOT fat at all! She's a great tennis player too.

I agree with the article, only sexist assholes would make derogatory comments about Bartoli.

Here's the article, thoughts? Bartoli is on the left for those that didn't know.




"28 year old French tennis player Marion Bartoli is your 2013 Women’s Singles Wimbledon champion!

That’s Bartoli there on your left. And I’m sure you can see the problem here. You don’t? Oh, that might be because you’re not a BIG SEXIST ASSHOLE. Because, if you were, you’d take one good look at the Wimbledon champ on the left there, then take one good look at the Tennis player next to her, Sabine Lisicki, whom she beat to win the title and realize “THE WIMBLEDON CHAMPION IS NOT A TALL SKINNY BLONDE MODEL LOOKING WOMEN! THIS CAN’T BE!!!!”

Following is a collection of disgusting misogynist tweets along these lines:

bartolitweets





Go on. Go read the pile of rage-filled, reeking-of-entitlement hate Bartoli prompted simply by daring to appear in public playing world-class sports.

Don’t tell me “It’s just a few idiots” or “What do you expect from the Internet” or any of those bullshit excuses. Our culture teaches boys and men to treat women like garbage, and they gleefully do so publicly, with no inkling that they should be ashamed. Some boys and men are able to overcome that training and behave like human beings. Far too many are not… including a BBC sports commentator (via the Guardian):


The Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli said she would not let comments about her appearance by the BBC presenter John Inverdale spoil the greatest day of her life. The BBC was forced to apologise after Inverdale suggested the French player was “never going to be a looker” on Radio 5 Live, shortly after she defeated Sabine Lisicki to win the women’s final on Centre Court.

On clinching the title Bartoli made a beeline for the players’ box where she embraced her father and former coach, Walter. Inverdale told listeners: “Do you think Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little: ‘You’re never going to be a looker, you’ll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight’?…

Earlier Inverdale told his listeners that he poked fun at Bartoli’s looks “in a nice way”. He added: “She is an incredible role model for people who aren’t born with all the attributes of natural athletes”

Imagine, at your moment of triumph, being reminded that no matter what you’ve achieved, you’ve still failed, by the only measure that really matters for women: whether men find you attractive.

This shit has to end."

Even when women are doing things unrelated to sex, the story is always her sexual attractiveness/availability or lack thereof. Because, the patriarchy.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

I hate that. Also, I think people that call athletes ugly are jealous they can't play as good and don't care about the sport. If they want to see models don't watch tennis or any other sport.

Is Scott Steiner the author?

Women's sports don't matter outside of beach volleyball, and it has nothing to do with being good at beach volleyball

I agree. She's not super hot, not fat at all. But very pretty. But I mainly like her skills on the tennis court. She has a unique serve I like too.

Re: Bartoli called too fat to win Wimbledon

She didn't really deserve to win though, she had an easy run to the final and then her only challenge froze in the final.

And yes, she is fat.

She beat everyone the tournament put in front of her, what more can she do?

And, even if it is entirely irrelevant to Tennis, there is nothing wrong with the way she looks.
