No but clear insults of other users are.

Honestly, as much as I abhor women's MMA, I'd love to see a Women's TUF. In fact, I think all TUF's should be with women. Just for the shenanigans in the house rather than the actual fights.
I hate seeing any fighter get really hurt, but watching Meisha Tate's arm get turned inside out was especially hard for me to watch.

Tate is ugly and cunty, so it didn't bother me one bit.

Now for example, seeing Ronda doing a Shad face after getting cracked by Cyborg, that'd make my stomach turn.

How is "established" that women are necessarily less coordinated to any significant degree?

Some of the people (including some women) who post on this board aren't thrilled with your attitude. You are welcome to hold your opinion, but take a little more care the way you express it.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I'd watch a Women's TUF if the chicks were actually talented, I've warmed up to Women's MMA but I just don't think they have enough good women to make competitive divisions.

Is it necessary to go anywhere? I think she's ugly, stupid and has awful character.

But most importantly, she's ugly, so I don't really empathize with her when she's getting her arm snapped like I would for Ronda.

This won't ever happen because there simply isn't enough athletically gifted women period. However, I'd still be up for a Women's TUF because I'd imagine it'd be like an episode of the Real world with some cute lesbians thrown in between slopfests.

Is this a serious post?

Research found that men tend to use one side of their brain (particularly the left side for verbal reasoning) while women tend to use both cerebral areas for visual, verbal and emotional responses. These differences in brain use cause a difference in behavior between men and women. Women tend to be better at sensing emotional messages in conversations, gestures, and facial expressions, and are thus more sensitive. Women start to speak and read at an earlier age than men and are generally better in verbal skills, such as learning a different language. They tend to have a better grasp on grammar and spelling, and girls have better handwriting than boys do. Women have better sight at night and have a more acute sense of smell, taste and hearing.

Men are better in spatial coordination and have a better sense of direction (usually!). They excel in math and are great at interpreting three-dimensional objects. They have a better hand-eye coordination and more precise control of large muscle movement. They have poor peripheral vision but better sight in bright light and a better sense of perspective. Since they use one side of their brain more than the other, they tend to use the left side for verbal reasoning and the right for visual and emotional activities (if they are right handed).

These differences are not rules. It is easy to find women who excel in math and men who have excellent language skills (and it is even easier to find men with no sense of direction). Chances are the above statements are not going to work for your everyday situation, but these have been shown to be true in scientific studies, based on large, diverse populations. When looking at large populations, these differences between men and women become evident, and proper statistical analysis takes care of the exceptions.

Not that it wasn't ******* obvious or anything based on every single sport in the history of mankind. It'd be a miracle if a woman basketball player in the history of the sport even managed to pull off a double clutch reverse layup.

Watching women play ball sports is outright painful. Like I said, submission grappling isn't really a heavy-athletic sport and although wrestling IS, a non-athletic style of wrestling works very well too(see Ben Askren, Cole Konrad, etc), so it's generally fine....the striking however always looks heinous(even Cyborg compensates for technique with pure, testosterone aided power) and it's generally ugly to see two women punching each other in the face....no matter how butch one of the parties may be.

I mean using a dumb-ass term like "cunty" to describe her!

Who cares? You sound like that annoying feminist chick that bitched out at Rogan.

What are you going to liken it to the n-word or something? Maybe even the f-word towards gays?

Because that'd be ridiculous.
