Serena Williams thinks childbirth will make her a ‘real woman’ — and she’s facing some backlash because of it.
“I have so much respect for so many women [for giving birth],” Serena said. “I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It’s going to be something incredibly impressive to go through.”
You already know that not everyone took kindly to Serena’s ‘real woman’ comment.

@serenawilliams Serena I want you to know that you can be a real woman without having a baby replying to your Stellar comments

We’re sure Serena didn’t mean to offend, but she definitely should have chosen her words a bit more carefully.
