For future notice. Personal experience does not always correlate with objective fact. If I happen to have a "good experience" with a tiger in a cage -
in that the tiger didn't attack me - it would be idiotic for me to infer from that experience that it is safe to walk around tigers.
You may have had experiences with female MMA fighters that led you to say - perhaps hyperbolically - that girls are good fighters. But in fact, when
you take all the objective information we have on this subject, from track and field competitions, from professional sports, it's common knowledge,
something a grade school knows, that men are better athletes than women. Ergo, you put layla ali and mike tyson in the same ring - layla ali is going
to go down with the first punch he lands on her. Or, from modern MMA - put Anderson Silva with the leading female fighter: same situation. Shes going
down the first chance he gets.
One wonders whether there might be some unconscious inhibition on the part of men when they fight a women. Do you go all out? Isn't there a strong
part in us that holds us back - at least somewhat - from hurting a woman? The very fact that their chest region is so exposed - and the breasts happen
to be extremely sensitive to touch, and thus a punch - would make me uncomfortable with attacking her all out, since my all out attack might involve a
punch to the upper chest region, if it happened to be open.
Last thing. I think guys can get caught up in the extroverted socializing and start thinking and saying stupid things with regard to female athletes.
In any sports - any competition of any sort - men will beat women. Female tennis has a good track record with attracting crowds, but we tend to forget
that they are inferior to men tennis players. Put Federer or Nadal or Djokovic against Serena Williams, and Serena Williams is going to lose. Why??
Female hips are attractive to me - evolutionarily speaking, males pay attention to the waist to hip ratio as an indicator of high fertility. But this
ability, this wide waist, sacrifices athletic mobility. Serena Williams, for example, wouldn't be able to move side to side, laterally, as fast as
Nadal, or Federer. Also having boobs jump around in your chest affects the full motion of your tennis swings. In addition to this quicker lateral
movement, men are stronger: they can get to the ball faster, and hit it harder.
So that's tennis: basketball? Average female height is 5'4 and a bit. Average male height is 5'9 and a bit. 5 inch difference. Again, there's the hip
issue which makes running less fluid for women then for men. In fact, if you look at the top female athletes, you will notice that they have very
unfeminine like bodies: thinner hips, smaller bust. If they had the fatter waist and bigger bust, that would take away from their athletic abilities.
I'm not trashing female athletics for the fun of it, but its important that people think accurately about male and female differences. Under no
conditions should a biological male be allowed to participate in a female competition - least of all MMA. It's just not fair. It's not fair because
once you let one in - and the one you let in may not be particularly exceptional - you establish a precedent, a justification for letting all others
in. Before you know it, you have men who are winning championship belt solely because they are men fighting women.
