Yesterday I was on the phone with my best friend, Carmen when she asked if I’d been following the news about Simone Biles. I said I had, sort of. I knew that the U.S. gymnastics virtuoso had just withdrawn from the Olympic finals, citing her mental health. And I knew that the public response was largely supportive, save for some minor and predictable backlash from a handful of inconsequential clowns.
