A Female Horse Of Course Of Course
The Associated Press recently polled sports editors from around the country on the female athlete of the year. Serena Williams won in a landslide. What caught my attention was that the second most votes went to Zenyatta, a horse. Rachel Alexandra, another fucking horse, also made the top 10.
I would think that humanity is an implicit part of the word “athlete,” but no one asked me.
Update: I don’t consider myself a feminist, or even particularly attuned to the struggles of women in contemporary society. What I resent is that the AP poll sucks all the joy out of mocking the WNBA.
