So, GQ decided to name Serena Williams their woman of the year. This is a good thing, right? Well, let’s take a look at what Twitter has to say on the matter:

They really put "Woman" in quotes in reference to Serena and no one at the table thought it was a bad idea. I'm speechless.

Oh, they’re mad. As the kids would say, they’re BIG MAD. This exemplifies everything that is wrong with the world today. People are seeking out things to be mad at. Let’s not look into the reason why woman is in quotation marks. Surely, it has nothing to do with the fact that Serena just had a collaboration with Virgil Abloh, whose signature is placing quotations around phrases. Nope, it has to be racism/sexism. It’s sad because these types of people won’t relent, either. They’ll continue virtue signaling in their echo chamber full of Dockers & LL Bean.
