She is without a doubt one of--if not THE--greatest female tennis player ever. Cogratulations. I know she rankles a lot of white tennis fans but nuts to them. No one can argue with success.

The most successful female athlete of all time just got body shamed in the New York Times



The_most_successful_female_athlete-6b912161fd7e441acde488aeea0c7f85



On Friday, just as Serena Williams was preparing to clean up her historic sixth Wimbledon victory, the New York Times decided it was a good time to critique her body:

Williams, who will be vying for the Wimbledon title against Garbiñe Muguruza on Saturday, has large biceps and a mold-breaking muscular frame, which packs the power and athleticism that have dominated women’s tennis for years. Her rivals could try to emulate her physique, but most of them choose not to ...

I read the aboce article criticizing the NYT piece yesterday. The Times is taking hits from many sides on this one. It's a self-inflicted wound. They should have known better.

I read the NYT piece itself titled "Tennis’s Top Women Balance Body Image With Ambition."
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/11/s...alance-body-image-with-quest-for-success.html

The Times itself backed away from the piece in an opinion penned by its own public editor titled "Double Fault in Article on Serena Williams and Body Image?"
http://publiceditor.blogs.nytimes.c...in-article-on-serena-williams-and-body-image/

The Times should just issue an apology and minimize the damage. I can't imagine how anyone at the NYT thought the original article was a good idea.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
