The idea of athletes as role models doesn’t usually work out well these days. I think Ronda is an exception. Her story is inspirational. Some people see arrogant, I see confident. Yes she’s “outspoken” (do we use that term for men?) and when you are, .. not everything you say comes out as well as when you rehearse it. ... Ask Chael.
My little girls are surrounded by images of women and role models in the media. Ronda is about as good as they get. I let my daughters watch her, I want them to pick up on her confidence and take no shit attitude. She’s the prime reason my 7 year old has forced martial arts training on me. My 8year old stuck with horse riding but she armbars me all the time
In my opinion dismissing women’s sports is dismissing women. a mistake on many levels.
I pity the fool that tell’s my baby to make him a sandwich.
...ignore my new av. I'm just taunting rusty
