Let me get this straight - two females play against each other, and the umpire is called sexist. Next two black people are drawn as a cartoon, and somehow drawing them differently is racist.
Serena Williams is misusing sexism as the reason for the warnings/penalties she received. There are quite a few sensitive folks who are die hard fans of Serena Williams. They see red whenever they see any criticism of Serena Williams. Its sad to see they too are misusing sexism and/or racism by criticizing any/all critics as being sexist/racist.
Sexism/racism are some serious problems in the world and I fully support activists who are trying to fight this. Including Serena Williams! I am sad to see it being misused by her in the US Open fiasco.
Professional tennis in general has advanced a huge way forward in terms of woman's equality and race equality. I believe fighting for sexism in the tennis world is not pertinent any more. The real fight is elsewhere (all over the world - with probably the Japanese society being one of the prime problematic areas!!).
My message to fellow activists: lets get our focus right.

Did you feel the award ceremony was one-sided? The presenter did not say a single word in praise of Osaka but was slobbering all around Kasatkina. He did not even bother to hand over the trophy to Osaka.

Since TV series are long lasting and addictive, their impact, in particular their music, is much more memorable. Are TV series part of this category? As far as movies go: I choose Pretty Woman and Jaws.

I am intrigued by this article. I have been struggling to learn Japense for almost a year; and this sounds like a fun way to learn.
I am a relative newbie to games: I do have a PS3, but I use it mostly as a Blue Ray player. In the US of A, I wonder, where can we get such Japenese language games for the PS3?
