    Main evil of UFC: inspiration for small plastic action figures. They're unstoppable. We're doomed.

    Lionknight is right. Draw up an alternative letter and flood their own petition with it. Point out the positive aspects of competition, a vigorous lifestyle and the right of people to associate with whatever fighting style they see fit. People would never have objections to say, a karate or Judo or BJJ tournament ... but now that they are mixed and some chap has scary tattoos it is taboo? I bet the membership of Bullshido alone could out-number the anti-mma groupies.

    Once thing: could we be tactical about this? Leave the howling douchebags in just-bleed t-shirts out of any response. Intelligent discourse plays a far greater role in MMA than many of its detractors realize, but that won't be apparent while the sport is constantly associated with--and portrayed as the province of--chest-beating morons in the stands.

    Dear Boston City Council Member,
    To protect children from extreme violence and hate speech, we demand that any person under the age of 18 be prohibited from attending live amateur and professional football events in the City of Boston.

    --
    Football (also known as “American Football” or “tackle football”) is an extremely violent form of entertainment, in which athletes tackle, pummel, and slam each other on a field and before live audiences.

    Football players at the amateur and professional levels have competed in public stadiums and on television bearing Neo-Nazi messages in their tattoos or on their clothing.

    Extensive research has associated exposure to media violence with a variety of physical and mental health problems for children and adolescents, including aggressive and violent behavior, bullying, de-sensitization to violence, fear, and depression.

    Studies have found that repeatedly exposing children to violent media is a risk factor for increases in aggression later in life, even into adulthood.

    The National Football League (NFL), the leading promoter of professional cage fighting events worldwide, markets tackle football to children through toys, video games, clothing and gym classes; and facilitates players' interactions with adolescents.

    NFL players have joked about rape or used foul and abusive language that is particularly demeaning to women. NFL players and company representatives have used homophobic slurs and other insults that are hurtful and offensive to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

    Producers of alcohol products have sponsored professional football promoters, with logos of popular alcohol brands prominently featured at the center of football fields and at public press conferences.

    Therefore, children should not be permitted to attend live American football events as spectators. We, the undersigned, demand that children under the age of 18 be prohibited from attending live amateur and professional football events in the City of Boston.

    Here's what I wrote to them:
    Dear Boston City Council Member,

    An anti-MMA website (www.saynotoUFC.com) is attempting to prohibit anyone under 18 years old from attending mixed martial arts competitions. The website throws out many unsupported claims about the sport being violent, racist, and discriminatory. These statements ignore the unity, brotherhood, and empowerment that martial arts have brought to thousands of practitioners, giving them an outlet for aggression and a way to stay in shape. The statements are also not qualified or explained in any way, painting the MMA community with a broad brush. A community that, by the way, includes fighters from all races and from the LGBT community. Seeking to demonize the sport to America's youth is a poor idea, especially when our society is getting more sedentary and isolated, and would probably hurt tourism in Boston.

    Please see through their attempt at morality for the scaremongering attention grab that it is, and allow aspiring athletes the freedom to pursue an interesting, technical sport that has representatives from all races and orientations.
