Anyone want to tell me why I shouldn't kick this thread into YMAS?

Here's one for you.
Back in the old gladiator days, the lassies would fight with one or both breasts exposed so as to get more attention from the men in the audience. Granted, today's serious sports events don't have fighters go out with half a sports bra on, but you can't deny the fact that women who fight in some places- I'm looking at you Russia- have been known to beat the **** out of each other naked on camera for money.
Just a thought.

Punching a woman in the boob will not make them happy.
In fact, they will probably kill you. I'd kin it to getting kicked in the nuts (I said 'kin it', the nuts are worse) but since I don't have boobs and women don't have nuts....
I'll just leave it at that.

I enjoyed the article quite a bit. Gladiatorial combat is, I feel, important to have in some form in society. Today we have our pro and amataur fighters. Fighting is in everyone's blood, a little bit at least (it's the way of us multi-cellular organisms), and woe to whoever forgets that gender is not an exemption from the need to affirm your existence by fighting.
I wish more women fought, and not just for the sleazy reasons. I don't want to sound all TMA on you here, but I think that when we fight we learn things that generalize beyond the ring as well.
****, I went all TMA on you.

That's why that one woman in Olympic beach volleyball got a boobjob--so more
people (read "men") would watch.
I agree with kid spatula--the "jiggle twins" need to be restrained for athletic
competition. I mean, I saw my wife chase down the puppy across the yard
one morning in her nightgown---looked like a couple of crew cut socks with
rocks in 'em swinging around.SEANBABY:

I find it ironic that women in our modern society are supposedly much more liberated than women in ancient Rome, but there seems to be less opportunity for female fighters in ours than in the Roman's. Sure, there aren't any laws to prevent them from fighting, but I've never even seen a women's boxing match scheduled for pay per view.

On a side note, last year, on my wife's very first day home alone with our new baby (her Mom and sister spend the first two weeks with us), some dirt bag broke into our house while she was in the bedroom nursing our daughter. She heard some noise from the front of the house and put the baby down on the bed just as the dirt bag came around the corner into the back hall towards the bedroom. She yelled "What the **** are you doing in my house!" and the dude turned tail and ran. Her mamma wolf's instinct being piqued at this point, she gave chase all the way out into the street before he got in his car and sped off (he'd left the engine running). Of course, she hadn't taken the time to put her bra or shirt back on, so she was chasing him in only a pair of sweat pants. If she'd caught him, it would have put a whole new spin on the term "rear naked choke." :icon_roll
