i wanted Serena to win, but it was still cool to watch Maria Sharapova win the Wimbledon Championship this morning. She seems like a nice girl.

I caught the awards ceremony, having been out on a very long run -- and I watched the highlights. She (Sharapova) has great power. I'm fascinated by the sudden emergence of all of these Russians (Myskina, Dementieva, etcetera).

I was listening to sports talk radio coming up I5 yesterday, and the men were (predictably) just saying the most objectifying things about Sharapova... sigh, Girl ain't even legal yet.

I'll take a piece of sweet, young, fresh SOVIET (not Russian) pussy anyday before some jungle fever Ameri-Con.

Hey Alan Alda (posting above), some of us have dicks and actually use them. You rubely wanker.

To be so insulted by you, sir, is clearly an honor. Bigotry, homophobia, red-baiting and misogyny -- all in three sentences! Well done, Robert!

Hugo, you comment that these men "predictably" had only objectifying things to say about Sharapova. You are a misandrist. Not a little hypocritical, wouldn't you think?

As bigoted as Robert is, merely obejctifying women doesn't qualify one as a misogynist.

Congrats to Sharapova.

Saying that "objectifiying women" doesn't make you a misogynist is a bit like saying that burning a cross on your black neighbor's lawn doesn't make you a bigot -- reducing a remarkably talented woman (heck, reducing ANY woman) to "pussy" is the very definition of misogyny.

Okay. By my line of reasoning, Robert is a chauvinist. By your line of reasoning he is a misogynist. I won't quibble over semantics.

What I don't understand is how you can label someone a misogynist after you just made misandrist remark.

Mmmmmm fresh young blond pussy. Snatch. Box. Hair pie. Pink meat. Crease. Mmmmmmm!

She's so young and fresh she still tastes like pee!

I'm not a fan of either Williams sister, but I've got to admit that Serena handled herself with class and style afterwards. She was smiling and seemed genuinely happy for Sharapova. My respect for her went up quite a bit.

i can't follow all this talk about misogyniny and misandriny or misoglyniy or whatever. i'm for equal opportunity. That's why i choose misanthropy!

It was a nice happy boost to the Russians, too. It was all over their headlines. Yay for the pretty Russian girl!
