John McEnroe: tennis "asks too much" of women  

2 comments
Pro tennis player John McEnroe wants to look out for us ladies by ensuring that we don't hurt our dainty little arms picking up those big heavy tennis rackets. Better let the menfolk do it for us. In an interview, he said (among many other things):

"You're asking too much of the women. They shouldn't be playing as many events as men."

and

"They should be required to be in less events, there should be less events for the women. It seems it takes an actual meltdown on the court or women quitting the game altogether before they realize there's a need to change the schedule."

Thanks for looking out for us, John, but seeing as how you don't have a woman's body, I think it's a little tough for you to decide what we are and are not capable of.

What next?

    i dont belive in equal rights of men and women. i truly prefer my man to earn money while i care about house. for me it is easer. i feel protected, my life is less stressful. at the same time it has nothing to do with tennis. women even can be much better then men if she has more talent for such things. and why women never suggest to illuminate all men from ballet?
