Serena Williams is VERY excited about the upcoming birth of her child, as any expectant mother would be.
HER due date is fast approaching, and Serena Williams is growing nervous. https://t.co/d8e6JCRlOD

She made the following comment when talking about the impending delivery:
‘I have so much respect for so many women [for giving birth],’ Williams, 35, told the Herald Sun’s Stellar. ‘I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It’s going to be something incredibly impressive to go through.’
It IS impressive. It’s miraculous, actually. I also feel a liiiiittle light-headed when I think about it too hard, but anyway…
She has respect for mothers, and feels that motherhood and giving birth will make her feel whole. That’s how she feels. I don’t see the problem with it. Some women have children, some don’t, she really looks forward to the experience. Is this a big deal?
Oh, it is a HUGE FREAKING DEAL because SJW feminists all over social media are going ape-sh*t about this horrible, offensive thing to say.
Serena Williams said she feels like a “real woman” because she’s about to give birth. Having children doesn’t make you a “real woman”

Nope, but cutting off your penis does!
— RoseFire (@native_amaris) August 8, 2017
Did she say that? Or are you looking for reasons to be offended today?
@serenawilliams last time I checked having a baby wasn’t a prerequisite for womanhood. What a divisive statement.

you just set women back 50 years. thanks.

Serena Williams, TENNIS PLAYER, just managed to single-handedly set women back 50 years. I knew she was great at tennis, but had no idea she was so good at TIME TRAVELING. WOW!
Some of us can’t have babies. Doesn’t mean I’m not a woman.

So woman who can’t have children are real women? Or women who decide not to have children aren’t real women? Really?

What decade no wait century is she living in
— Susan Westler (@SWestler) August 9, 2017
A decade, no wait century, where you’re allowed to feel however you want towards motherhood. “Feminism” allows us that, our own thoughts and ideas….right?
Her comment was the bullshit here.

So a woman’s only purpose is giving birth?
— egb (@_etgeeee_) August 9, 2017
Good Grief. WHEN DID SHE SAY THAT?! Way to make something out of nothing.
That’s sad. Such an accomplished person & she doesn’t feel she’s already good enough.
— Robin Dunkinson (@29708keko) August 9, 2017
Uh…. she didn’t say that, either.
Ya know childless women are real women too, yeah Serena?

Beg pardon?? That’s a load of #BS ! I havent birthed any babies but let me tell you, I AM 100% WOMAN!
— Shelbycat (@shelbycat03) August 9, 2017
Cool, Shelbycat. I thought maybe you were part cat. Thanks for clearing up those percentages.
Some replies are kind of sad…
I have a hard time with this. I have tried really hard to carry a child to term. I haven’t been successful, and I question my womanhood.

Here’s the thing. Many women don’t, or can’t have children. They too, of course, are “real” women. That doesn’t change how Serena feels about her own PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, and that shouldn’t change how women feel about themselves.
Why is everyone so hellbent on feeling validated through each and every person’s opinions? Of course I feel for any woman who has gone through the painful experience of infertility or miscarriage, but at some point you have to step back and realize THIS ISN’T ABOUT YOU! WHY do they need to be validated by how SERENA WILLIAMS feels about her own personal experience with motherhood? Do they not realize how childish that is?
Build your OWN worth. If being a mother makes you feel like a real woman, own it. If being a successful business woman makes you feel like a real woman, own it. Why bitch about other people’s feelings? IT IS INSANE. MOVE ON.You know what ACTUALLY makes you a real woman? Your chromosomes. The end.
Interesting, how liberals don’t think giving birth makes you a “real woman.” Only having an abortion or “identifying” as a woman can do that, right?
