MMA - and more specifically - Women's MMA - your thoughts?

Asked by zensky (13288 points ) November 15th, 2011

I have been trying to watch, and get my head around women’s MMA to no avail.

I am probably your average, slightly chauvenistic heterosexual (mostly, but that’s for another thread) male; for the life of me, I can’t understand women kicking the shit out of each other as a form of entertainment.

Men, also not so much – but I get it. It’s simple evolution and is not unlike 10 guys running around with a basketball, or 22 guys kicking a soccer ball. Just using their hands and trying to beat the opponent senseless. It’s like tennis, with fists.

But women? MMA? Mixed martial arts-way of beating each other up?

Hey, I’m all for women in the military. I don’t think twice about a female doctor, lawyer or pilot, for that matter.

I don’t even snort woman driver when one is doing 25 in the fast lane, or pulls out of a spot without looking in her mirrors.

I am only a little bit chauvenistic, the intellectual type, if I may be so brash – the kind that has the dna in him, but tries to fight it. The kind that nature and nurture are constantly at battle, but intellectualizes it and tries to rationalise it by thinking; we are all human, and we are all equal. First and foremost.

MMA – women beating each other up – not enjoying it at all.

Rant over.

Love MMA in general, partake in small tournaments every now and then. As for female MMA, I don’t care either way… Unless there is really skimpy clothing and mud or jello….

Bring it!

__I have no idea why I like it. It sure as hell doesn’t fit my elitist, effete , artsy, intellectual tea-drinking profile. But there it is.__

I do not like sports in general. I think that they are soap operas for men.

Women who are badass I like a great deal. They embolden me to be badass. So women’s mma? Boring. Women who perfect their bodies and kick ass? Hot.

And they might kiss at the end.

Nope. Don’t care for barbaric “sport.”

That shit can be seen every year at the January sales over here, like a pack of wolves they are.

It gives women a better name, and shows people how tough we can be.

I don’t like sports, but if someone enjoys it, I can’t debate that. Why not?
