His PR rep took over probably


sarmatron

or he just noticed the quotes he first stole were getting a bad reception, so he just stole some from the opposite side.


risky_piloting

with all due respect, this is giving him far too much credit. he has no idea what a good talking point from the “opposite side” would be.

Last tweet is verbatim copied from: [https://www.vic.gov.au/benefits-gender-equality](https://www.vic.gov.au/benefits-gender-equality) Previous two tweets are slight rephrase from: https://wearerestless.org/2020/07/03/the-feminist-movement/

Probably? This is straight from the mouth of a PR rep lmao


ReadyComplex5706

Seems like a copy-and-paste job from an article or a paper to me. I doubt he even understands what it means.


indeedy71

Here’s the article he stole it from https://wearerestless.org/2020/07/03/the-feminist-movement/


Lizakaya

I have no issue with this. He’s an athlete not an intellectual. He said something people construed a certain way and he (and his team) don’t want that perception of him. This is why he has PR. He could be a different athlete and give zero fcks what people tbink of him


ZurAajanaikatzurada

He should give credit to the originals authors


Rather_Dashing

Not sure what everyones talking about, it has grammatical errors (lays instead of lies),so it doesn't look like a HR rep or copy and paste job to me. More likely Tsitsi paraphrasing something he read


guitar_vigilante

It's one of the most common grammatical "errors" and native English speakers have been mixing up the two words for over 700 years. This could very easily be written by a native English speaking PR person if that is the only mistake you are seeing. That said this was taken directly from an article linked by another commenter above.


Mikhail_Mengsk

Finally.


Miss_Medussa

This sounds too articulate to be stefanos


meinnit99900

it’s plagiarised

From who?

You got downvoted for asking for a source. If dude knows it’s plagiarized then they must know the source right? Link it and back that shit up. I mean I don’t doubt it is but i like irrefutable argumentsz

Psychological_Bug676

Plagiarized misogyny and now he’s plagiarizing feminism. This man is just hopeless


PizzaPartify

It's better to plagiarize this than hateful stuff imo


skg555

Because he is a good tennis player so people take him seriously as a tennis player. Anyone taking him serious outside of tennis are making a very common mistake. Nobody should listen to pretty much any elite athlete, artist etc outside of their specialty field.


FeeFooFuuFun

Is it? Omg that's hilarious. Why is he on such a bender lately?


CCGamesSteve

People plagiarise all the time. Whenever they find something someone else has said that explains how they think and feel better than they could do themselves, they'll use it.

I'm pretty sure his greek joke was plagiarised as well. Atleast I've heard it before

Tempted to ask him what he thinks are unhealthy levels of gender equality.

x is good because of y and z, but it should only be moderate levels of x, because radical is bad 😔 no i will not elaborate. what a stupid take


Falz4567

Well despite him clearly copying this from some book word for word to sound smart. Nothing he’s said here is objectionable.


TheWayWeSee

Yeah this. And maybe he did because he felt inspired by it not to show off. Still stupid not to quote directly but I feel like the message behind the tweets is reasonable


fujimouse

Call me a cultic modern feminist but I don't think anything has ever been a better example of mansplaining than whatever this is.


[deleted]

[удалено]


fujimouse

:(


benmiles222

Hey, I'm just following orders! But honestly man-splaining is a nonsense term that needlessly genders the act of being a condecenting dickhead. I genuinely find the term sexist and it is part of this phenomenon that he is speaking about.


elizabnthe

Its being a condescending dick out of sexism specifically.


fujimouse

He's trying to authoratitively explain feminism after hundreds of women told him how off-the-mark his last feminism take was. I'm sorry if you don't like that this is a highly gendered situation but that's what it is.


benmiles222

Lol, your response couldn't be any more perfect to prove my point.


fujimouse

Dude what the fuck are you talking about? What point? I did not gender this. Feminism is about fighting all-encompassing society-wide oppression and you and Stef fucking Tsitsipas are whining because sometimes women say mean words about you 🥺. That's your entire perception of sexism. It's not remotely comparable and you think it is because the privilege you have allows you to be blind to everything else it entails for women.


hrgilbert

But doesn’t mansplain refer specifically to situations where it’s a man being a condescending dickhead to a woman, even in cases where the woman already knows the explanation that’s being provided?


benmiles222

What does the gender have to do with it? There is already a word for it, it's condecenting. People call it man-splaining to imply that only men are capable of this kind of behaviour which is nonsense. Are people using a special term for women condecenting to men? I don't think so.


Tarul

>What does the gender have to do with it? I don't think you're understanding the term quite correctly. Man-splaining is a term used to explain situations where men over-explain "obvious" details **unasked** to qualified women because they assume that, because the listener a woman, they're likely not to know. More often than not, it's a misguided attempt to flirt. Examples include: * random guys giving weightlifting tips to regular female gym-goers (unasked) * random male car enthusiasts explaining how cars work to female car enthusiasts (unasked) * men over-explaining things in general to flirt and talk to unknown women (unasked) * so on and so forth It's definitely a widespread phenomenon; you can ask any woman in STEM for an anecdotal example. Woman can "woman-splain" to men as well, but due to the topics and social constructs, this doesn't happen at nearly the same rate as man-splaining. Hence the gendered name. HOWEVER, in this case, Tsitsipas is blogging to the void that is Twitter. There's no targeted audience, and the listeners don't have to listen nor engage with him (no one tweets at you unasked outside of replies). As such, this is not a case of man-splaining, but just... Jaden Smith energy?


benmiles222

My point stands. Women are capable of this behaviour but there is no special term for when the genders are reversed. I fully understand the term (the irony of you explaining it is palpable).


Tarul

>I fully understand the term (the irony of you explaining it is palpable). The explanation and examples show how gender is relevant. Gyms, cars, and STEM (to name a few examples) are traditionally male-dominated activities. Man-splaining is also linked to flirting, which is socially more often done by men than women. Can women woman-splain? Sure. I'm sure there are some scenarios around "traditional female roles," like cooking (not so much here, since restaurant chefs have historically been male til recently) and child-rearing. But, women are breaking into "male-dominated" activities now because they were restricted in the past (either due to social norms or actual literal restrictions), which is why women experience this phenomen - from men - so much more. Hence the "man" in man-splaining is important, because it's a particular problem that MEN tend to exhibit. Removing the gender from the term removes the gendered accountability as well and fails to acknowledge that men have historically held power over women.


frisbeescientist

I think it came about because a lot of women have that experience with men assuming they know more. Like it's a term that exists to describe a common phenomenon, it didn't come out of some deluded radical feminist's brain to invent a problem no one was having. I think it makes more sense if you connect it with other common feminist themes aka women not being respected or listened to in professional spaces. Like if you see it as the natural extension of a woman getting talked over in a board meeting it fits a lived experience more than if you assume it's just "the word condescending but for dudes."


Distinct_Salt_2460

* The verb splain has been in use for more than 200 years, originally as a colloquial pronunciation of the Late Middle English word explain. It came increasingly to refer to condescending or verbose explanations.[3][12] The term mansplaining was inspired by an essay, "Men Explain Things to Me: Facts Didn't Get in Their Way", written by Rebecca Solnit and published on TomDispatch.com on 13 April 2008. In the essay, Solnit told an anecdote about a man at a party who said he had heard she had written some books. She began to talk about her most recent, on Eadweard Muybridge, whereupon the man cut her off and asked if she had "heard about the very important Muybridge book that came out this year"—not considering that it might be (as, in fact, it was) Solnit's book. Solnit did not use the word mansplaining in the essay, but she described the phenomenon as "something every woman knows".[13][14]* [Mansplaining ](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mansplaining#:~:text=The%20term%20mansplaining%20was%20inspired,she%20had%20written%20some%20books.) It’s specifically about a man explaining something to a woman she has greater knowledge of than him.


benmiles222

Yeah, I know what it means.


Distinct_Salt_2460

Sure doesn’t seem like it.


benmiles222

Seems to me you miss a lot so I am not surprised...


KyleG

I hope you're a woman because it's time for me to mansplain what mansplaining is: when you assume a woman is too stupid to understand a concept she probably understands (because of her womanhood), and then you explain it to her. I don't think a public tweet out to what is *probably* a majority-male audience could be considered mansplaining.


fujimouse

I've already said why I consider this mansplaining. Yes it's ironic that you've chosen to do this anyway. No, not ironic in a funny way. I do wonder if you've completely missed the context and are taking this at face value but at this point I actually don't care.


Icangetloudtoo_

Lol ain’t that the truth He has real main character energy


JonnyArtois

> mansplaining That's just sexism to use a word like that. 'Womansplaining' would be absolutely shot down and be completely sexist to use.


wadetj9999

Sounds like he did something he should not have and this is the cover up


katrinabeluga

Bro? You’re a 24 year old athlete. This isn’t the time to be talking about redpill manosphere rhetoric. Just live your life.


KyleG

These tweets are like the literal opposite of redpill stuff. He's arguing that feminism is awesome even for men. Probably zero redpilled dudes would agree with that. **Edit** I take it back. I didn't see the last sentence where he undoes all the good he wrote. And apparently he tweeted elsewhere criticism of "modern feminism" which is something I wasn't aware of. tl;dr what an artichoke


[deleted]

https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/z9mkli/stef_has_a_take/


KyleG

Yeah so I really missed this important context in the off season. Also I missed the last sentence of his third tweet. He had me in the first 95% NGL


TheWayWeSee

Oh shit, now it makes sense ^^'


katrinabeluga

Feminism was about equal rights. Redpillers and Tsitsipas are talking about “modern day feminism”


KyleG

**Edit** Just to be clear, I realize over the course of this response that you were right. I left the twist ending. l0l > Feminism was about equal rights. What part of "awesome for men" was I unclear about? When women have equal rights, that takes pressure off men, which is *awesome*. Do you know how freaking awesome it is not to bear the sole responsibility of putting food on the table? To be able to pursue a career that is "girly" because women are no longer expected to occupy those jobs? >Tsitsipas [is] talking about "modern day feminism" The first freaking sentence of the tweet was "young people should get involved [in feminism]." Second tweet is exactly the argument I just made above: feminism means *individuals* can live free lives, and "long-standing gender stereotypes" get broken down. Then he argues that feminism increases social cohesion in #3. Says it reduces violence and reduces anti-social behavior. That it should be "encouraged" and and ohhhhHHHHHHHHHHH I totally missed the last sentence. LMFAO yea you're right!


katrinabeluga

No problem lol appreciate the candor


OzoneBaby2

Gotta love the hypocrisy. You call him out for thinking all feminists share extremist ideas, yet have no problem grouping him with extremists aswell. World's ain't black and white you know?


[deleted]

Lol he's not thinking anything, it's literally just mindless copy-paste garbage. It's the same energy of a 14 year old on Facebook trying to impress his hot English teacher who friended him. He 100% has no actual opinion on this matter


OzoneBaby2

Yeah I'm aware of that. Thats why it's extra ridicolous seeing all the names he gets called in the comments. I get he picked the worst possible argument to start an online discussion about, but people calling him incel or mysoginist are insane


[deleted]

I mean yeah I wouldn't go that far at all. He's just childish, can't really say much beyond that


katrinabeluga

I’m not really calling him out tbh, my comment doesn’t have a double meaning. The guy doesn’t need to go on rants about what society needs, he’s already a millionaire athlete. Just live your life.


omkar529

I mean social media is a part of his life just as much of ours who aren't a 24 year old athlete.

What's going on here? I'm abit out of the loop.. I read what he wrote, and seems positive and informative? Whys everyone hatin on him?


WaltersBurnerPhone

He recently tweeted the complete opposite of this just days ago promoting the very opposite of feminism, and now plagiarized these pro-feminism tweets word for word from a couple different articles. It just comes across as damage control and incredibly inauthentic.


Godoflolness

I genuinely have the same question... He speaks for equality, but against radicals. What is there not to like? It's not like he has singled out anyone, to call them radicals. Very, very confused as to the comments in this thread.


smiley-communication

Check the previous post. Basically the opposite of this tweet


MonsoonFlood

He plagiarized anti-feminist quotes in his tweet a few days ago, got backlash, then he plagiarized pro-feminist quotes in his latest tweets as a form of damage control The man is a 🤡

Watcher0363

In the early 21st. century lead by the excellent leadership of one Stefanos Tsitsipas. The world wide feminist movement emerged victorious in its goal of reaching fairness for all women world wide. That is why every nation on this planet, has a coin with his likeness on it. To honor the likeness, is to honor the man, to honor the man. Is to honor women everywhere.

Jkpoker13

I think it’s funny how stupid athletes can be sometimes. This guy is a great tennis player but probably is only a high school graduate so it shouldn’t be too surprising. It’s like dude, just play tennis and keep your stupid thoughts to yourself. Why would you rock the boat when it’s only going to hurt your marketability and money making ability in the prime years of your life. It’s kinda like in the US when you hear lebron james/ Kyrie Irving talk. Maybe kyrie is smart (he went to duke) but I would take it as he’s just a good basketball player that prolly took simple classes at duke. Lebron James, he didn’t even go to college. I get so sick when athletes talk like they know something. It’s like stay in your own god damn lame and focus on what you are good at. Oh lol athletes, a lot of folks are much smarter than you. Just because you can hit a ball, score, are blessed athletically etc, it doesn’t mean your opinion is brighter than others.


KyleG

>Just because you can hit a ball, score, are blessed athletically etc, it doesn’t mean your opinion is brighter than others. Imagine writing this in a comment where you're advising others *not* to express opinions. Like bro, they're just people saying their opinions just like anyone else. The fact that you hear their opinions is not their fault; it's your fault for listening to what a stranger thinks.


StefanSommer

He should tell feminists that! ....to their faces.... ....someplace with cameras and microphones.... ......so I can watch him get slapped up in real-time.... Men, we do not tell women how to do feminism. That's completely up to them. Say it with me!

Specialist_Newt_8992

He is kinda right… Some extreme wings of feminism basically ask to be superior to men… in general and as a whole feminism is great, and the work it has done throughout history can not be removed and is integral and a pillar on what our modern society is built on. And that’s what he is basically saying here, but Twitter ain’t it chief, people on there to be offended and read offensive news…


benmiles222

Honestly well formed ideas, backed up by fact and well said. If you "can't keep up" it's probably because you refuse to accept what he's saying.


meinnit99900

No it’s because he plagiarised this after literally saying feminism was about hating men about an hour ago, not because I “don’t accept it” I’m a feminist ya melt


omkar529

Not that I have an opinion on anythinf about this, but I'm pretty sure he had said that "modern feminism" is about hating men, not feminism in general.


benmiles222

Plagiarism is irrelevant to your keeping up, you just don't like the message.


meinnit99900

Are you daft? I’m saying I can’t keep up because he literally just changed his mind from what he was saying two minutes ago, not because I don’t understand what he’s saying

toastonfire7

Why am I getting so many tennis posts recommended to me. Has the tennis world entered some kind of meltdown?


MonsoonFlood

He needs to learn what plagiarism is, why it's problematic, and try to avoid doing it every time he tweets. In short, he needs to use his money and privilege to get educated
