Because they have been brainwashed and selectively bred over millennia by male assholes. Do you really think if women had not been oppressed throughout the whole of human history that they would still be doing all that girlie shit now? Not a fecking chance.

What does being oppressed have to do with wearing makeup and being girly? American women aren't really oppressed anymore, so why do they still do those things? If you went up to many women and told them they act feminine "Because they have been brainwashed and selectively bred over millennia", they would be calling YOU the male asshole. Men like you are still assholes like the men of old, just in the opposite, hipster direction.

All this talk of womens oppression or womens rights or lack there of or whatever and how we have "brainwashed" them or whatever well the sad reality is.....A SHIT TON OF WOMEN LOOK LIKE MEN without makeup and all pretty little bells and whistles and Im not sure about the rest of you.....but I dont like my women to look like men when I **** them. Just saying. Alot of women like dressing up and looking pretty as well. Most of this thread is stupid as hell. The quicker this whole womens MMA thing goes the way of the buffalo the better. Im not threatened by it or whatever those arguments are but it just doesnt interest me a single bit. Douche post is douche post.

I'm surprised that they got pulled from the card to be honest. Sweden is so liberal, if it's going to be accepted everywhere, Sweden seems like a great place to start.

They were originally set to meet in Sweden, now they're meeting at the TUF finale.

I really don't understand why people get so upset about womens MMA, I understand some don't like it but that is fine, some people would rather watch women fight because they perceive two guys grappling as being "gay" (not meaning anything but everybody has heard somebody say it in regards to MMA) Some people don't like mma its not the end of the world, some people like MMA but don't like watching female MMA, again that is fine. Basketball fans don't have to watch the WNBA.

As I said earlier though I am disappointed the UFC didn't stay the course and stand on there principles.

You make it sound like men had some master plan to make women care about their physical appearance more than other things, but it was nothing more than natural selection. More attractive women bred more fit children (attractive women who make good mothers and attractive men who make good fathers) over the course of millennia.

Selective pressure (especially sexual) is almost always much greater on the males of a species. Does that make our females ancestors assholes too? No. It's just evolution. What works gets passed on and what doesn't dies out.

Most men probably f***ed every women that let them (and some that didn't), so there was probably little, if any, male selective breeding going on over the course of most of human history.
