Tennis Talk

Yesterday the NY Daily News introduced me to tennis player Sara Gronert.

She was born with both male and female genitalia but had the male parts removed and is now legally a woman. End of story in my opinion.

The "half a man" bullshit is so lame. It was reprehensible when Martina Hingis lobbed it at Amelie Mauresmo a decade ago. Granted Mauresmo is a lesbian not a transgendered woman.

I can't begin to imagine the many obstacles that transgendered folks face on a daily basis, in circumstances far more harsh than the world of pro tennis.

I wish Sara Gronert continued success on tour.
