Not wanting to see women get beaten, bloodied, and bruised isn't a left-wing thing or a right-wing thing. It's a human thing.

But ask yourself this: why do women wear makeup, high heels, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, hairspray, etc and spend so much more of their time on beauty than men? Is the word 'beautiful' more commonly used to describe a man or a woman?

I know you think you're standing up for women or something by forcing everybody to enjoy women's MMA, but I personally know plenty of women who are repulsed by women's MMA but have no problem with men's. I know plenty of women who embrace their gender role with regards to beauty.
To me, people who militantly demand that men and women be seen as LITERAL equals in every way and look with contempt on women who actually enjoy doing feminine things are just as reprehensible as extremists on the other end of the spectrum who think women are inferiors and shouldn't be doing anything other than cooking or cleaning.

There's an increasing majority of women who are women but don't necessarily enjoy doing those feminine things, just because it's expected of that gender doesn't make it the norm.

An increasing majority of women don't want to look/act feminine? News to me.

Women should be able to fight if they want to. I shouldn't have to pretend like they are any good at it (compared to men, by and large) or that they're entitled to do it on the world's biggest stage just because men do.

The most equal thing to do would be to say that every weight division is unisex. Why don't we do that?
