[Editor's Note: Serena Williams is one of the top tennis players in the world but her butt often gets more attention then her skill on the courts. Many black women, including myself have this problem. The Pretty Brown Girl writes about this and the importance of looking beyond our "assets." -Renee]
To have one’s body dissected, objectified and fetishized in such a manner is an absolutely despicable feeling. It’s like being molested by the words and attitudes of absolute strangers: the stares, the cat-calls and those bold S.O.B.’s that have gone as far as to reach out and touch me.
