How to Make Centre Court at Wimbledon - Be a Blonde Babe!

So just when I think I've said all I have to say about this year's Wimbledon, this morning I start reading about the latest news to come from the premiere Slam. How do you get a Centre Court assignment if you're a woman? Not by being a top-ranked incredible tennis player. But by being a good looking tennis babe. A tall, white, blonde, good-looking (in the eyes of the All England Club) tennis babe. Here's a great post on this issue, which says it much better than I can. I'm sad and disappointed.

It still makes me mad. These women have all worked so hard to get where they are and they still have to deal with misogyny and sexism and racism. Wimbledon should be ashamed of itself.
