Personally I don't understand why some don't want to see women fight or get bloodied up. If the women have the skill and want to go at it all the power to them.
Let me make a probably controversial analogy to explain how some people can feel that way. How would you feel about kids fighting in full blown mma, like little 6 year old kids right in that cage, complete with full brutal Muay Thai elbows and knees. Now before everyone starts hating me for comparing adult women to children, please let me explain more
. Yes, grown women are adults in full charge of their destinies and I'm in no way implying that they should be treated like children. What I'm trying to do is explain how people can have a protective instinct towards someone based on age or other factors (in this case, gender).
I plead guilty on the count of gender. Lets face it, most
women are physically vulnerable to stronger men, and in the immortal words of Ben Parker, with great strength comes great responsibility. Maybe it's cultural, evolutionary or whatever, but it's built in guys to want to protect women. Maybe women nowadays find it bellitling, or restricting on their freedoms, and fair enough. I don't feel I need to apologize for it though or be forced to suppress it .. I mean it's better than the other extreme alternative of scumbag guys that beat up on women.
