I see. I think the problem is that people don't care about the calibre of opponent. I think people care about the fact she was a man, now is a female and is fighting females. For me, I just could never imagine hitting a woman, no matter what operations I've had. It just doesn't seem right to some people. And I think thats what Cain/Rousy/Rogan/Mitrione have a problem with. Calibre of opponent is inconsequential. In reality, its a woman with the genetic makeup if a man beating up other women.
That being said, people don't seem to have a problem with Christine Santos!
