Hi guys, sorry I'm late!
(Glam, please don't be mad)
It looks like I missed a lot of the discourse here, I hate being late to the party...
I still do not see why it would be a big deal with a male wrestlers losing to a female. As Glamour has use Chyna as a great example. And in the last year or two or three Claudio(antonio cesero) has lost to Sara Del Ray, Heath Slater has lost to Lita and in some of indies women are always mixing it up in the ring with men. Its all about putting on a good show-besides its fake- the man is not really hitting to woman. Its the same with this efeding- its not real
I believe that intergender wrestling shouldn't be a flash-in-the-pan gimmick match; it should be more mainstream. I see it as a huge potential draw - because I don't know of any other physical sport that allows men to directly compete against women. I understand the risks some people see in it: not as much as women getting hurt as much as people worry that it sends a negative message... but I also believe that this sends an equally positive message: women can compete, survive, and thrive - not just in wrestling, but in any and all aspects of life. And why not? Last time I checked, men and women are human. Equals. They don't just deserve a chance to prove that... They have that chance, because frankly I fail to see what makes most men believe that it is their opportunity to give.
Damn, I'm long-winded...
