I am NOT here for the disrespect and misogynoir that Taylor has had to deal with. I was glad to see Serena Williams stand up for her. (It made me think of the “passing the torch” kind of connection from Dominique Dawes to Gabrielle Douglas.)
Also, I love this open letter on Ebony that David Leonard wrote to Patrick McEnroe, regarding the disrespect and limits they seek to place on Taylor.
