    It's problematic enough (we have decades of proof) when young men in their 20s all the sudden have absurd wealth, now teenagers and very-early 20-something people?

    😬
    You mean, like Kobe, T-Mac, Lebron and Giannis? Or are you talking about all the baseball players who were drafted right out of high school?

When Kournikova played you would hear plenty of youngish male voices calling out "come on Anna". However it was a long way from this kind of hysteria.
    That's because people at The All England Club are polite, compared to those at Melborne Park, Roland Garros and Flushing Meadows.

    This whole thing is a marvel to watch unfold. So much self-inflicted drama and "trouble."

    I had never heard of a "thirst trap" before. Makes me feel old.

    But what are those boys expecting at a gymnastics competition?

    I am glad we don't have creepy Alica Schmidt fanboys screaming at track meets.

    Creepy and maybe not right, but hardly unexpected. Just take a look at her Instagram page.

    The latest on Olivia Dunne.

    LSU beefs up security at gymnastics meets after incident with Olivia Dunne fans

    https://www.yahoo.com/sports/lsu-bee...173309930.html

    There will be a new protocol in place at upcoming LSU gymnastics meets. The university will enhance security to curtail disruptive fans from impacting student athletes.

    The new measures will be implemented following an incident involving junior all-round gymnast Olivia Dunne last Friday. A group of young men attended LSU’s season opener against the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and disrupted routines of other gymnasts.

    I'm fully aware this is your site but I'm genuinely curious why the absurd behavior of a particular group isn't fair game.

    Feminist is defined as the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of equality of the sexes.

    This means that feminists make up such a large proportion of the population that blanket generalisations are misguided.
