    combat sports and females

    what's ur take on it?

    I had a big discussion with my cousin some weeks ago. He feels that women/females should not engage in such sports. According to him, women should be soft and cute not fighting. Although he doesn't have a say, he's totally against my daughter doing Taekwondo 5 times a week. He agrees that women should be able to defend themselves but doesn't agree that being in a regulated safe combat environment is the way to go.

    he probably believe in "barefoot, pregnant and behind a stove"...

    Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

    I watch a lot of women's MMA and I like it just like any other sport I watch. It is something for women to take the aggressions and other things out through and it's fitness as well. Say if they wanna punch and kick and choke a woman out for prize money and for my enjoyment, I say kudos.

    Her kiss and her hug..........her caress
    Oooooh that used to mean so much
    And bring you happiness"

    I love contact sports, and a lil play fight. I don't see myself doing wrestling its not my sport but i see no problem with other women doing it. I mean its not as if we cant be soft and pretty outside of these activities.....

    Lol, he does believe in the "traditional" roles of women. My daughter is quite active and loves sports. but she is a def. tom boy which i don't mind at all.

    Any kind of sport keeps you fit and disciplined..

    and the contact sport is good, takes kids out of their comfort zone. in life there are gonna be some bumps in the road so tackle them head on,

    some men just want women to be weak so they can take advantage of them.

    they are threatened by anything women do for personal progress

    what are you talking about???

    this was not about MEN, it was about my male cousin's opinion.

    I am not a men "basher" at all.

    I see nothing wrong with a girl/woman being involved in contact sports or even watching it.
