French tennis star who won Wimbledon faces Twitter backlash from vile online trolls calling her ‘fat’ and ‘too ugly to win

The 28-year-old won the woman’s singles prize at Wimbledon
She has been attacked on Twitter for her looks
Trolls branded her ‘fat’ and an ‘ugly bitch’ before calling her ‘manly’
BBC commentator John Inverdale has been criticised after asking if Bartoli’s father had ever told her she wasn’t a ‘looker’ x

Because remember ladies! Even if you are at the top of your field and achieve phenomenal success, it will automatically be undeserved if you are not considered sexually attractive enough to be worthy of men’s time!

Nevermind that you’re an athlete who could physically kick the ass of every single scumbucket saying these contemptuous things about you without breaking a sweat…

"Oh, you know girls just mature faster than boys."

Hmm did you ever consider

that might be because boys’ indiscretions are excused with a simple “Boys will be boys,”  

while we simultaneously force girls to grow up too fast by sexualizing them at increasingly younger ages?

"Crisis pregnancy centers" and use of Harassment and Breach of Confidentiality

enforceourrightss:

Harassment and Breach of Confidentiality

While I love my son dearly, I can’t pretend the way he came into the world was anything close to ideal.
I was eighteen years old, a first-semester student at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  I became pregnant by my fiancé (now my husband) sometime in August of that year and found out just before Halloween. Once my pregnancy test from the pharmacy turned blue, I remembered seeing a place called Pregnancy Resource Center in town and figured that would be a good place to start.  I called the number in the phone book to make an appointment.  I noticed some strange things about the receptionist’s language, but figured that must have been typical of all family planning clinics for security purposes. I made an appointment for the following day.

I don’t know what I was planning to do once I walked through the doors of the Resource Center.  I hadn’t considered abortion explicitly, but wanted to know more.  Like so many confused young women who get pregnant by accident, I just wanted to hear what my options were.  That’s what the Resource Center promised.  What I got was entirely different.  While awaiting my results of the same EPT test I’d already taken (the kind that takes like 2 minutes), I was forced to watch these videos about “fetal pain” and saw a sensationalized ultrasound that featured a fetus “retreating” from the abortion tools.  The video also showed a lot of pictures of “aborted fetuses” which I thought was weird because I’d seen my older sister’s 20 week ultrasound and it hadn’t looked like this video at all.  These photos almost looked like the pictures from Iraq of the dead babies on the street following the Fallujah massacre: heads, eyes, mouths, fingers, toes, and even some hair.  I remember thinking, “Is that really a fetus?!”  The video said it was a fetus at 8 weeks.  I was probably 10 weeks.  I didn’t want to be there anymore. 

The staff member eventually walked in and told me the test was positive.  I said, “Does that mean I’m pregnant?”  She said, “Your test was positive.”  She handed me a pamphlet about adoption.  I didn’t know what to think.  I asked her about abortion and she told me that if I murdered my baby I would go to hell.  She said I would probably get breast cancer or commit suicide, or be infertile.  It didn’t seem right.  I started to leave.  The woman told me that if I left without signing up with this adoption agency, she’d call my parents and tell them I was going to murder their grandbaby. I started to get sick.  She threatened to call me at home, to come to my house, and to tell all my friends I was pregnant if I didn’t sign up.  I finally ran for it.  Unfortunately they had my phone number and address.  They called my dorm roommate and somehow got her to give them my parent’s phone number.  Fortunately, I had gotten to my parents first and told them everything.  They hired a lawyer and got the Resource Center to stop harassing me.

I eventually did go to a Planned Parenthood and, through talking to staff there, learned all about abortion, adoption, and parenting.  With the support of my parents and my fiancé, as well as the wonderful people at the Planned Parenthood, I decided to keep the baby.  I think maybe I was going to anyway, not that I have anything against abortion.  It just wasn’t for me at that time.  And I got amazing pre-natal care with a midwife that the Planned Parenthood referred me to. 

My best advice for anyone who finds themselves in this situation would be to be honest with your parents before the agency can get to them first.  If you find you’ve been to one, tell your friends to be on the watch for these people.  Don’t listen to what they tell you about your options because they’re not doctors and don’t know anything.  Oh, and if you so much as have a lawyer call them they’ll probably back down. 

and this is why I don’t go to clinics that are anti abortion. Because before they even know what you want to do or what you are thinking, they’re already harassing you and calling you a murderer.

It’s real funny [except not funny at all] how the way to devalue, dehumanize and gaslight women is to say they have Daddy Issues

Daddy Issues became a well known thing because men have become known for abusing and leaving their children

And yet, somehow that’s a reflection on the daughter and not men

But Feminists make up sexism right?
